Anyone who's been keeping up with L Plus's work over the last few years will be more than ready for his debut album. So, here's the first taste of Hideout. Timelapse takes uss into IMAX mode. The wide-open panorama conjured up by the atmospherics and the expanding percussive hits at the beginning of the track set the scene. The build keeps things crisp and clear, with L Plus showing how to create anticipation out of just a few expertly-programmed elements. And then the rowdy stomping drop, featuring immense grinding sweeps of bass, delivers on that build perfectly. And, of course, things don't stop there. You're going to want to let this one run right to the end, to take in the full majesty of the visceral deconstruction of the tune in the extended outro. Then, Creature Must Die takes us into a twisted world of B-movie sci-fi. Dissonant pads and reverberant drums back up the eponymous dialogue sample in the intro, building to a stripped-back robot funk bass drop. This is far from being everything that L Plus has to offer in this track, though. The deftly executed builds and riffs, deploying discord to powerfully tension-increasing effect, bind the track together creating a wave of movement to make this a certified stepper. Connoisseurs will already be getting hyped for Hideout. As this first salvo demonstrates, it's going to be something monumental.
