Lot 49 Presents Lee Coombs Sampler
Samples can be heard on Lot49's myspace by clicking HERE
To coincide with the release of the Lee Coombs compilation album on Lot49, the label is releasing a special sampler with exclusive tracks taken from the mix. Coombs has been one of the forces that helped shape the sound of Breakbeat and later Tech Funk, whilst bringing a multitude of other influences to his production and DJ sets. His ability to draw on breaks, house, techno, electro and acid is what set him apart from the masses and is clearly reflected on what is being hailed as his most innovative mix compilation to date.
First up with have the man himself, partnered up with Australian talent Nick Thayer. ‘TFM’ is a straight for the jugular breaks animal with a huge atmospheric feel and rolling B-line to die for. This is a track that beautifully
reflects the vibe of the mix itself and is set to create dancefloor devastation.
Next in the blocks is Elite Force, the man behind the last Lot49 compilation and legend of the tech funk scene. ‘Engine’ is a one man musical monologue of everything that is good in breaks, tough and driving and produced with the finesse that seems to come so naturally to Shack, the man behind the Elite Force moniker.
Finally, label boss, Meat Katie puts his stamp on ‘God is Green’ the Alloy Mental track that was turning heads for the Skint label last year. Previously unreleased this mix perfectly jells the techno-centric sounds of Phil Kieran’s Alloy Mental project with Mr Katie’s undeniable dancefloor sensibilities. Outstanding stuff.
All in all, this is an energetic and near perfect fusion of some of the best tracks from today’s A list tech funk producers
