Podcast 232: LV
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Since the release of last year's excellent Routes full-length, LV has been fairly quiet. Nonetheless, the group's intrepid infusion of South African house rhythms into a UK funky-inspired template has often proved interesting—not to mention enjoyable—so we jumped at the chance to have the UK trio put together an exclusive mix for the XLR8R podcast series. The group certainly can't be accused of phoning it in, as the mix whips through more than 40 tracks in a little over an hour. Along the way, LV explores a wide variety of sounds; South African house and various shades of the UK bass spectrum are of course represented, but the trio actually begins in more leftfield territory and later caps off the podcast with a frenzied dose of footwork and drum & bass, two worlds that are increasingly being thrown together by low-end loving DJs. Throughout the mix, regardless of what genre is being explored, LV's love of drum-heavy percussion and thick rhythms is a constant, resulting in a listen that is quite possibly without a single dull moment.
