Over the course of 2018 there has been a major influx of new producers starting to make headway within a very crowded scene, some of them bringing a bag of original flavours to the table and therefore making a majorly positive impact on the scene. We were very pleased to see that Lijah is one such artist, consistently supplying the bass scene with potent bangers.
Our highlight of the EP is entitled ‘I Don’t Fuck With Love’ falls directly into that bracket, pushing together a collection of potent modern bass themes in perfect harmony with the catchy vocal riffs that lay shrouded skillfully within the mix. The breakdown is a goldmine, with diamond encrusted yet gritty synthesizers running wild over sharpened 4×4 explosions and unique drum sounds, pouncing forward across any mix.
The other two tracks are by no means weak links however, with ‘Equator’ bringing us some northern niche style heat from the jump and the more experimental expanse of ‘Tycoon’ bringing us some crunchy breaksy grooves. Overall as a project, this one can hold it’s head high as the YosH Pit imprint surges forward, quickly making their mark on the scene with relative ease. Lijah has been setting pace for a while and this EP sets a very high standard of what we have to look forward to across 2019.
