So after a slew of releases on various labels including his own Surround Sound Recordings Lethal finally drops his debut LP The Sprawl.
Taking inspiration from science fiction and meshing it with his musical influences to create a musical journey that can also rock the dance floor.
Opener ‘The Sprawl’ kicks off with a melodious soundscape making way for a stark, sinister vibe that sets out the stall before ‘Icebreaker’, featuring vocals from Hostile MC, brings the heavyweight destruction.
Techno tinged runner ‘Blue Nine’ delivers intricate programming, while ‘Panther Modern’ stomps through with chunky abandon.
Up next ‘Jacked In’ releases the chaos with a frantic bass line over thumping drums before the ‘Flatline’ switches up the vibe to bring out the grime and hoovers.
Dub flavours creep into the mix with ‘Babylon Rocker’ keeping it dark and deadly, then ‘Kuang’ spreads the virus with some straight up tech drum and bass.
As we head to the close ‘Straylight’ pulls out the breaks with some old skool tech step business and ‘Wintermute’ ends the journey with a bang with a hard pounding no nonsense technoid groove.
This LP takes no prisoners and is a landmark in Lethal’s production career so far, the end of the beginning…
