Draize drops ‘T103 / War Paint’ on Lost Recordings
After closing out 2020 with a release from one label head, Lost Recordings now turn their attention to their co-founder Draize.
Following on from the success of Draize previous release, ‘Guttermouth’ EP, Lost Recordings kick off 2021 with a pair of absolute heaters that blend his love of eerie atmospheres and creative sampling. Whether it’s a straight up moody roller like our premiere ‘T103’ or the broken beats and sub heavy groove of ‘War Paint’, this single brings serious flavours and is guaranteed to rumble your speakers.
“I always find myself getting lost in the lore of games which has always had a huge influence in my writing process for music. £10 if anyone can guess which games I was playing at the time!” – Draize
Draize aka James Ramsbotham has been musically driven since his mid-teens. He used to listen to bands like The Smiths, Joy Division and The Stone Roses. He was, however, unsure of what exactly he wanted to do with this passion for sound. Draize discovered Drum & Bass during secondary school after (as so many did and still do) “borrowing” Drum&BassArena Presents DJ Hype from his sister.
Being introduced to an eclectic bag of tracks from the genre such as Lynx ‘Disco Dodo’ and ‘Carnival’, High Contrast ‘If We Ever’, Commix ‘Be True’, Noisia & Phace ‘Cannonball’ and Original Sin ‘Don’t Be Silly’. All of these tracks laid the foundations for Draize’s musical journey.
Last year was a great year for Lost Recordings and the music we all love. They tell us that they aim to continue and build on that trend. Keep one eye firmly on Draize, he has plenty more to bring to the table in 2021…
