LV prefer to let their music speak for itself. They admit there’s no premeditation in what they do and that their intention is simply to make music that excites and amuses them, without worrying about fads or scenes. This thing is that the music is liked by labels like Soul Jazz, Hemlock and Hyperdub, and that, whether they care or not, puts them in the spotlight of every aficionado following the mutations in the British hardcore continuum. The sound of Will Horrocks, Gervase Gordon and Si Williams is indebted to dub and classic reggae. On those grounds they’ve been building a sonic body of work that takes influences from kwaito house (Gervase’s South African roots had to be acknowledged one way or the other), garage and UK Funky. Those are the spices that have seduced Martin “Blackdown” Clark, the man who, via his Keysound Recordings, will release LV’s debut album, to be called “Router”, on 4th April.
