We’re no stranger to sharing the amazing, genre-bending dance tracks that come out of Los Angeles Music Project, known to locals and aliens-alike as L.A.M.P. They’ve really been bringing the heat this year. With weekly mixes, DJ sets, and exclusive premieres from emerging producers and DJs in the game, there’s no stopping this train.
On his first LAMP release “Feelings,” Portland-based artist LEO ISLO debuts his incredible sound and captures us, putting us into a chill house track saturated with warm pianos, pulsing baselines, and airy vocals. With a wide mix and subtleties that are heard with every new listen, this tune is swiftly contagious and creates a nice place to to sit back and enjoy the strong melody, main hook, and overall smoothness of the track.
LEO ISLO is the newest member to join the LAMP roster, bringing with him a diverse catalogue of sounds spanning the genres of Lo-Fi Pop, chillwave, house, and indie-rock. His first EP, Modern Fiction, was released in 2014 and standout songs like Body Speak and Your Bones grabbed our attention early on, while also receiving nods from other contemporary electronic aficionados. He draws inspiration from artists like Jai Paul, Neon Indian, Toro Y Moi, Caribou, Washed Out, and Grimes (right on, that’s my wavelength right there).
