Lucas Buchta and Gary Pilz have been profound producers for a good chunk of the last decade. Throughout the years, their individual forces intertwined into a germafrican vision. Combining Luc’s love for a detailed arrangement and Gary’s exceptional sound design, their project “LADS” was born. The German & South African duo has seen their first releases dropped in 2017, including a debut remix on Nie Wieder Schlafen that climbed up various Spotify playlists and marked the start of continuous collaboration between the label and artists. Three years later, the team returns for an ambitious original release, pressed on black gold.
The 5-tracker EP “Bamboo” explores a broad array of sounds, from the orientalic “Cedar”, including Gary’s own beautiful vocals to the textured “Tin Pan Alley”, including a special piano recording from Luc. Ambient atmospheres and funky house vibes with “EDL” and main title track “Bamboo” deliver the front and backend of the release, offering a diverse vinyl with various energy levels. The EP underlines the duo’s incredible talent and showcases the potential of their capabilities. A next step for their project, worthy of an analogue pressing.
“Bamboo” also marks our second Vinyl pressing and we are incredibly excited to be able to deliver another physical release. An enthusiastic release, that further strengthens the bond between the artists and the label. We couldn’t be happier to finally deliver you guys the results, the team has worked on.”
