Posted by on 11/09/2010 | Category : Album-EP Reviews / Stay informed by subscribing to RSS Feeds or to Twitter

San Francisco based duo LAZER SWORD (members are Lando Kal & Low Limit) delivers with the self-titled LP « Lazer Sword » (Innovative Leisure) a brilliant album fusing anything from rap, electro, dubstep and grime together to form a new kind of musical experience.
“Lazer Sword” also has very good collaborations like on “Topflites”, a powerful hip hop track worn by heavy basses and the incisive flow of M SAYYID (Antipop Consortium / Airborn Audio).
The fifteen tracks of “Lazer Sword” offer a journey punctuated by the sound of future music, an original and varied selection marked by heavy basses and sharp melodies which have all to make “Lazer Sword” one of the releases of the year.

Back to the future with MICHAEL KNIGHT

“Knight Ryder” is a pure electro track taken from the EP of the same title released on Devon Records (a secret subsidiary label of Breakin’ Records) in 1998 and produced by MICHAEL KNIGHT. MICHAEL KNIGHT is indeed an alias of the legendary electro producer DMX Krew also known as EDMX, ED DMX or COMPUTOR ROCKERS who runs one of my favorite electro label Breakin’ Records.

Inspired of course by the theme song of the TV show K-2000 produced by STU PHILLIPS (to refresh memories here)
