Music isnʼt a drug? Try explaining that to all the fans fiending for Lorn & Dolorʼs latest
collaborative effort.
DRUGS may represent different landmarks in the producerʼs careers, but the approach to
the project was the same: from their trove of unreleased material, only tracks with a certain
spirit of impurity should be chosen.
By no means is this a finessed or seamless mix. It was never intended to be. More akin to a
warped cassette you fished out of a gutter somewhere, DRUGS is a rough compilation of
raw, uncut beats intertwined with obscure, sidetracking conversation samples from two
musicians and longtime friends who havenʼt forgotten their roots, or how to play off one
anotherʼs leads.
For some, Lornʼs chilling 2010 debut on Brainfeeder came out of nowhere. To the scratch
beat scene, and his massive underground following, Nothing Else was an overdue breath of
life not felt since the soul-wrenching melodies and punishing drums first heard in Grief
Machine, Lornʼs first official release from 2007.
Following three pressings of Nothing Else, numerous syncs in video games and broadcasts,
and a verifiable avalanche of live performances worldwide, Lornʼs inked a deal with Londonbased
record label Ninja Tune, and is undoubtedly sharpening his knives in preparation for
Ask The Dust; his highly-anticipated full-length due out in 2012.
Next is the eerie appearance of Dolor, whose prominent beats from the ether-world can only
be described as the long and painful calm before a storm. His style is punchy, angular, loud
and quiet all at once. Formal release credits include A Chapel for Velvet EP, and Reshaped
Escape -- a limited-edition split on independent record label Wednesday Sound with fellow
musician & labelmate, adoptahighway.
Dolorʼs evocative re-imaginings of "The Morning" and "Gone" by R&B sensation The Weeknd
continues to turn the heads of anyone with an Internet connection—including The Weeknd
himself, who showed love for the remixes on his official blog, octobersveryown.
Supporters of either producer are sure to enjoy the deafening intensity of DRUGS. Offered
free online at ohhelll.tumblr.com, the overall experience is unforgettable, and like any good
drug, youʼll only get sick if you try to give it up. - #
