LT  —  Forest Floor
UK rave, breaks, deep house—it all comes together on this gorgeous summer jam. Not bad for a 20-year-old.
Mesosphere fizzes with arpeggiated energy before giving way to a magnificent yet subtle drop that will serve festival main stages as well as it will back room clubs. Before the EP is over, LT has one more trick up his sleeve in Forest Floor - the titular track which is the musical equivalent of watching the sun rise through a misty glade after a night spent alone in the wilderness. With this gentle touch, LT proves he’s more than another kid on Abelton making bangers - he has breadth, incredible musicality and a rare ability to transcript sceneries into sounds. Finishing with ‘North Circular’ possibly a reference to the free Parties on the London Orbital or merely just a coincidence… you decide. We couldn’t be happier to welcome LT onto the RS INTL roster in what feels like a fulfilment of destiny. It’s such a great honour to have nurtured and now introduce the next generation via the Rhythm Section platform.
Shouts to Kraftwerk
A fan of the label from anearly age, Lewis regularly made pilgrimages to the pool hall as soon as he was old enough to do so.
Aged just 20 years old, Lewis Taylor aka LT is another prodigal talent from the north of England, whose association with Rhythm Section goes back to his school days. It was these visits with his old school friend Mallard (who had recently moved down to London from Derbyshire to study music) which proved to be a formative influence, prompting him to try his hand at production...It turned out he was quite the natural, with his second ever effort as an 18 year old making it onto this very EP.
