about

After a debut outing on our sister label International Black last year with his best friend Mallard, LT graduates onto Rhythm Section INTL with a stunning debut solo effort: FOREST FLOOR.

Aged just 20 years old, Lewis Taylor aka LT is another prodigal talent
from the north of England, whose association with Rhythm Section goes back to his school days. A fan of the label from an early age, Lewis regularly made pilgrimages to the pool hall as soon as he was old enough to do so. It was these visits with his old school friend Mallard (who had recently moved down to London from Derbyshire to study music) which proved to be a formative influence, prompting him to try his hand at production...It turned out he was quite the natural, with his second ever effort as an 18 year old making it onto this very EP.
Sitting somewhere between electro, house and techno with a healthy
dose of breaks - LT constructs complex arrangements with as much of a nod to the retro summer of love stylings of Lone as to the new age bounce of the Pender Street Steppers. The piano house stabs of ‘Untitled (Chesney)’ reverberate around chopped breaks and screaming samples, anchored down by bouncy organ bass and FM lead synth which really begs the question: ‘How did LT develop such a rich lexicon of club culture references in such a short time?’
We’d be tempted to believe it was just pure luck, if this mastery of rave aesthetics wasn’t repeated throughout the EP...

Mesosphere fizzes with arpeggiated energy before giving way to a
magnificent yet subtle drop that will serve festival main stages as well as it will back room clubs.
Before the EP is over, LT has one more trick up his sleeve in Forest
Floor - the titular track which is the musical equivalent of watching the sun rise through a misty glade after a night spent alone in the wilderness. With this gentle touch, LT proves he’s more than another kid on Abelton making bangers - he has breadth, incredible musicality and a rare ability to transcript sceneries into sounds. Finishing with ‘North Circular’ possibly a reference to the free Parties on the London Orbital or merely just a coincidence... you decide.

We couldn’t be happier to welcome LT onto the RS INTL roster in what feels like a fulfilment of destiny. It’s such a great honour to have nurtured and now introduce the next generation via the Rhythm Section platform.
