If you're an up-and-coming producer whose debut release is commanding the attention of Roman FlÃ¼gel, Mano Le Tough and Bicep, it's safe to say you're doing something right. Hailing from Belfast, LOR is doing just that; his focus on hypnotic melodies and subtle experimentation gaining support from big names across the world of techno and underground electronica.
LOR's aforementioned debut release is in fact a 3-track set of remixes, on which the Irishman puts his spin on tracks from three very different musical heavyweights: Derrick Carter, Arthur Russell and Kraftwerk - the latter of which particularly peaked interests here at DT. Adapting the pioneering German band's distinctive sound to fit a more danceable framework, LOR crafts a haunting slice of techno that proves infinitely more exciting than the original to ears spoilt by the current sea of forward-thinking electronica.
Accompanying each track is a video also created by LOR. The producer has a penchant for building complex patterns from simple computer code, so he's knocked up entrancing clips that look halfway between MS-DOS and a Spirograph set. Check it out over on YouTube:
Itâ€™s rumoured that those canny folk over at Get Physical â€“ and a host of other esteemed imprints â€“ have already asked to hear some original material from LOR, so to keep up-to-date with this hotly-tipped talent, head over to his Twitter and SoundCloud.
