Revan drops ‘Trip Tones’ EP on Lockdown Recordings
Lockdown Recordings are a Bristol-based label who’ve been grafting to build a roster which stands up against those imprints who were established in the earlier days. Since 2003 this is exactly what they’ve done. As well as taking inspiration from their local scenery and drawing for the artists who’ve helped build the famed Bristolian hub.
Promoting the deeper side of the dance music spectrum, they’ve always stuck to the same ethos; that is to offer only forward-thinking, technical and rolling vibes for the heads. Its specialities haven’t gone unnoticed with the independent label becoming one of the most renowned forces to come through in recent years. This is something they’ve pushed through an extensive list of artists.
Lockdown’s next release features Revan, an artist who first made himself known as a part of the Ill Truth project and who’s also establishing himself an individual identity. He represents all the styles which helped the duo grow an enviable fan base; combining that with the audience which Lockdown Recordings has amassed. Revan is about to unleash his ‘Trip Tones’ EP on the label which is already receiving support on BBC Radio 1, Radio 1Xtra, Reprezent and many other taste-making channels.
Our premiere is the third track ‘Charge’. Remaining punchy through its sequencing and freefalling beat patterns, the track’s bassline shuffles through the mix and you’re taken along for a ride.
Not only does this EP highlight Revan’s place within the wider circuit, but it also shows how important Lockdown Recordings has become to the fabric of the contemporary market. The forthcoming ‘Trip Tones’ EP signals what else is to come from the label.
‘Trip Tones’EP is out on Beatport now and on general release on 8th August. Check out ‘Charge’ below and grab a copy of the EP here
