With the stated aim of producing “forward-thinking dance records from the five boroughs and beyond“, New York-based label Lost Soul Enterprises has established over the past half-decade as one of the most intriguing and consistent techno labels from the East Coast of the US.
Having forged a solid back catalogue that includes releases by Richard Gamble, Heartbloc and Drooids, LSE step up this time with their tenth delivery and didn’t miss the occasion to put on a great spread. Spanning over three distinct twelve-inches forming the backbone to a massive VA triptych, the label’s conjured the cream of the crop of the North American underground scene: Bergsonist, Vapauteen, Stallone The Reducer, Jared Wilson… and many more.
Our premiere comes courtesy of a favourite in the person of 100% Silk and CGI Records affiliate Joel Shanahan aka Golden Donna, here dishing out an unbridled slab of acid-tech and brain-washing electronics set to stir up trouble on the dancefloor. As the drums beat a martial pulse, full-on whirlwinds of acidic essence loop the loop like a bird of prey, menacing and defiant, and when Shanahan eventually steps on the gas, you know you’re in good hands.
