Tough, Inventive, No-Nonsense, Genre-Bending, Multi-Ethnic, Hook-Laden Guitar-Based Dance Music that flouts convention.
LdashD’s life revolves around making music and it’s all consuming, diligently beavering away day in, day out, L-D is a single-minded solo production behemoth & multi-instrumentalist, but on the rare occasions when venturing-out or socialising, usually in Brick Lane London, if there too you might happen upon a trail of L-D’s latest graffiti/pasteups or even a sculpture/plaque or two, ‘Passport Tiles/Masks,’ which are rapidly becoming much sought-after collectors’ items. If you’re lucky you may also nab one of the numerous mini-L-D logo bags festooned on walls or railings during regular jaunts around Shoreditch containing free collectables, branded wristbands, stickers & cards, all featuring the unique, often futuristic style of design.
Much of the popular music released today is manufactured by teams of people, often many teams simultaneously & in different countries too, mostly graduates from Music Production courses, all feverishly banging away on the same would-be banger, a compromise, a mass-produced fabrication, it’s these mass-standardized, generally mediocre run-of-the-mill productions that differentiates L-D’s music.
L-D’s unique music is very much a result of an individual’s, opinion, response & application, music as, ‘Art’ perhaps, as Art is mostly made by an individual. Being self-taught is also an integral aspect of the finished product, L-D’s mentor, Picasso, was self-taught too, as was Vincent Van Gogh, both unique uncompromising artists.
The music press often particularly mentions, the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s & 90’s when defining L-D’s music, club DJ’s are also adamant that it’s a, ‘New Genre Of Dance Music…’, many mention, ‘Love’ the, ‘Great’, guitar riffs, one even prompting, ‘Disco Rock…’, quite revealing, as L-D has a great passion for guitars, it’s this lifelong passion, coupled with a healthy addiction to analogue synth’s, that enables L-Ds bold imposing music to seamlessly, accurately, transverse the past, present and future.
There’s a huge amount of respect and kudos for LdashD’s work amongst the dance community so we’ll leave it to some DJ comments to sum up for us:
