Lucas Buchta and Gary Pilz have been profound producers for a good chunk of the last decade. Throughout the years, their individual forces intertwined into a germafrican vision. Combining Luc's love for a detailed sound and Gary's exceptional sound design, their project "LADS" was born. The German and South African duo has seen their first releases dropped in 2017, including a debut remix on Nie Wieder Schlafen that climbed up various Spotify playlists and marked the start of continuous collaboration between the label and artists. Three years later, the team returns for an ambitious original release, pressed on black gold.

The 5-tracker EP "Bamboo" explores a broad array of sounds, from the orientalic "Cedar", including Gary's own beautiful vocals to the textured "Tin Pan Alley", including a special piano recording from Luc. Ambient atmospheres and funky house vibes with "EDL" and main title track "Bamboo" deliver the front and backend of the release, offering a diverse palette with various energy levels. The digital release includes the exclusive "Eis", which is ironically melting dancefloors with a powerful dance base, fueled with emotive strings and atmospheres. The EP underlines the duo's incredible talent and showcases the potential of their capabilities. A next step for their project, also available on black gold.

"Bamboo" also marks our second Vinyl pressing and we are incredibly excited to be able to deliver another physical release. An enthusiastic next step, that further strengthens the bond between the artists and the label. We couldn't be happier to finally deliver the results, the team has worked on.
