about

NOTE-----THIS IS A DIGITAL ONLY RELEASE.

At LDDLM, we like a close family, but we also like random objects colliding with our petty universe.

We had met Oyinboy in some murky back office held by house music illuminatis. We knew he was the man to talk to regarding the forefront of UK afrobeat (see here) but we were still gobsmacked when he sent us the video for THE JUNGLE. No need to explain why, it speaks for itself. It shattered/opened something in us.

Oyinboy subscribes to the importance of accidents: “Londoners Prince Kongo and Oyinboy met at a vogue battle in a Godforsaken East End dive. Oyinboy was DJing, Prince Kongo was competing. Recognising one another as unlikely kindred spirits, we bonded over a shared love of afrobeats, ballroom, trap, grime and Depeche Mode. We make music for glamorous immigrants and murderous guttersnipes”.

SMAGGHE & CROSS exploit the shattering provoked by the original, stripping the disintegration down. “Bleak urban landscape” is an exploitative cliché, this is anti-matter electronica.

This is the first of a serie of LDDLM digital releases. Hope you like as much as we do.
