Lazer Sword - The Golden Handshake EP (2010)



I have to admit, not everyone is familiar with the whole Los Angeles/midi-mecca/glitch/beat movement (thing) going on right now but that's quite alright. As a matter of fact, not knowing is part of the beauty/experience. In this category/genre of music, you hardly ever know what to expect. The genre itself is so diverse that labeling it "glitch" or anything else is doing it a disservice.

It's magic when a track that was produced five years ago can still sound like it came out yesterday. This is a 2010 release, mind you, but come back in five years to see/hear what I mean. In this case, Lazer Sword (and no, I didn't say Major Lazer) is comprised of Low Limit and Lando Kal and they specialize in, you guessed it, electronic/beat music (now what's with all the L's in their names?). Though this is a joint release between the two, what makes it interesting is that they split the EP in half amongst the two of them, so three tracks each, hence the title and well-presented album art. The first half of the record is more dancey stuff. The second, well, it's pure face-melting goodness. A fair balance, I think.

Check the vid if you don't believe me.
