Six-member, experimental bass music group LSN has been carving a highly unique path in the electronic music world for the better part of three years now, with each musician lending different influences and instrumentation abilities that enhance the overall creative power of the collective. LSN takes full advantage of their strength in numbers and talents to breathe a new, refreshing perspective into the largely computer based production style of the genre by recording live vocals along with a variety of instruments, including guitars and synths, as well as making their own samples from live recordings of every day sounds. Together, LSN explores the musical facets of a variety of different genres using their multi tempo sound, making everything from abstract, ambient soundscapes to full-fledged drum and bass bangers, all with an underlying emphasis on creating a live musical experience; a rare component that much of today's bass music is lacking.
LSN's latest release, the 13-track LP Oblivion, beams with innovation and originality, proving that there is still much untapped potential to be discovered in bass music in a period where many sounds and patterns have been largely recycled and relabeled. From its sultry vocal work, hauntingly heavy melodies and exciting, almost primal, drum patterns to hefty growls offset by spacious soundscapes, LSN's Oblivion finds an impossibly perfect and incredibly inspiring balance between live instruments and emotionally driven bass music that introduces listeners to an entirely new world of possibilities in the realm of deep bass music production.
