We’re psyched to be releasing the debut EP by long-time Local Action friend and family member, India Jordan. Born in Doncaster but based in East London, India’s felt like part of this label for years now - frequently playing our nights, DJing b2b with Yamaneko and Finn and running the New Atlantis label and social with Deadboy.
Although New Atlantis - a bi-monthly ambient social in Peckham that’s taken on a life of its own in the last year - reflects India’s deep interest in ambient music, she comes from a full-throttle dance music background, and that side of India is pushed right to the forefront here. The record’s title track - currently being rinsed by Finn, Teki Latex and more - flips a big soul sample over a relentless bassline, while ‘DN4’ ups the tempo, drawing from India’s love of classic hardcore and jungle. Finally, ‘Through Lacuna’ and ‘Leaving Stanley’ ride the EP out on a starry-eyed note, while Cork’s fast-rising ELLLL cranks the sub up to 11 on her remix of ‘Through Lacuna’.
We’ll be celebrating DNT STP MY LV at Peckham’s Rye Wax on May 2 with sets from Finn, Yamaneko, Ifeoluwa, JQ and India herself - £5 tickets here: www.residentadvisor.net/events/1252488
