LOL Boys may have called it quits recently, but that’s not to say it’s the last we’ve heard of them. Dawn / Dusk is the new opus from Jerome LOL, two separate tracks that have been presented as one wonderfully complete whole, continuing a dualities trend that can be evidenced on his Soundcloud page.
Dawn is a downtempo shuffle, its tempo and swing almost a mutant version of moombahton, and it melds the rigid mechanics of house with the loose organics of field recordings and pianos which don’t sound like a KORG M1 preset. But it really comes into its own when day turns to night – Dusk is an absolute explosion, a muted piano house line that sounds both euphoric and bleak at the same time, an acid bassline contributing to its extended outro. You can download the separate tracks for free here, or take a listen to the medley below – it’s out of this world.
