L 33 – Melt/Let Loose – Addictive Behaviour
The amazing L 33 returns for Addictive Behaviour, with his latest release, Melt/Let Loose. His signature sweeping, crushing sound is here in full and total effect, and he once again fits in perfectly with the label, always forward thinking, always cutting edge. His experiences with Addictive Behaviour and other labels, including Program, Eatbrain and Rise Audio means that he’s now upped his game, and is fast rising through the underground.
Addictive Behaviour have always been about bringing through fresh new music, no matter who it’s from, and have been the launching pad for many an amazing tune. Melt and Let Loose are no different, with both cuts ready to cement both label and artist in people’s minds.
Melt is a slowly building masterpiece, where electronic themes are established early. An interesting spoken sample bleeds into the main section, were haunting flutes are inserted over the top of some rich pads and ticking drum effects. The bassline is not forgotten, and once an energetic break comes along, the low end rises up in the mix, making the total package something totally unique and absurdly addictive. L 33 really can do it all, producing a track the like of which you’ve definitely not heard yet.
Let Loose also glides into view, but soon takes a different path, with stronger kicks and a more straightforward approach. The engineering is the equal of Melt, with finely tooled drums and more humming, marauding bass pressure. A vocal snatch reveals itself, before L 33 pours things back in, making for a rough, rising tune which is going to be an absolute killer in the clubs. You’ll not be able to resist moving and grooving to this one, so get ready for Let Loose.
L 33 and Addictive Behaviour team up to absolutely smash it with Melt/Let Loose. This may only be their fifth release, but they are as vital and important a label as you’ll come across this year.
