Following on from ‘EP1: Enter In Silence’ and ‘EP2: The Line Path’, Keysound unveil ‘EP3 : Cities of Technology’, the third outing from the shadow-dwelling hive-mind known as LHF. The EP forms a precursor to their forthcoming and long awaited debut album. LHF were recently described by Fact Magazine as one of “dubstep’s most intriguing crews.” EP2 made The Quietus’s best of 2011 list, described as feeling like “wandering around darkened alleyways in South London, cigar in mouth, Indiana Jones hat jammed firmly onto your head.” According to Keysound label boss Blackdown, LHF “sound like Sun Ra’s hijacked Rinse FM and is using it to communicate with the heavens”. LHF are a rarely-sighted and shifting collective comprising Amen Ra, Double Helix, No Fixed Abode, Low Density Matter, Octaviour, Escobar Seasons, Solar Man and Lumin Project. Exhale acts as events and communications lieutenant for the clan. Members are as at home in London, Mumbai, LA, Rio, or New York, as they are stretching out into the near reaches of the cosmos or the past. The clan are signed to Dusk & Blackdown’s Keysound Recordings, home to critically acclaimed recent albums by LV & Joshuha Idehen, Sully and Damu, which saw the imprint nominated for 2011 label of the year by XLR8R, DJ magazine, Fact Magazine and the Dubstep Forum Awards. LHF formed over five years ago and have left a trail of obscure mixes: Infiltration 1-6, Keepers Of The Light 1-3, mixes for Dusk & Blackdown on Rinse FM, Mary Anne Hobbs, Fact Magazine as well as the weekly United Vibes Sub FM show. It leaves a legacy of hundreds if not thousands of lost tracks. A tiny proportion of these will make up their debut album, due soon on Keysound. This EP is lead by two tracks from beat technician Double Helix, who delivers two quite different tributes to jungle. ‘Supreme Architecture’, with its celestial pads and dense drums, sees an unwitting subject questioning his own existence. ‘LDN’ is dark and deadly, imagining if Photek and the rest of the Metalheadz camp had attended early Forward>> raves at Velvet Rooms. On the flip, Amen Ra continues the jungle infiltration with ‘Essence Investigation’, a choppy, warm excursion that – with it’s child giggling samples – suggests a return to earlier, more innocent times. Finally No Fixed Abode drops a unique bass experiment in ‘Indian Street Slang’, sounding like it was unearthed in the backstreets of Mumbai.
