A1. Civic Society A2. Home Grown B1. Lucid B2. Saunton
Hailing from London, London Modular Alliance are a trio of modular enthusiasts, often performing live, completely on the fly using modular synths and live improvisation. Members include Koova , Yes Effect and Pip Williams , but on this new EP for Hypercolour , Pip Williams AKA Phil Venture strikes alone with four
devastating cuts. With previous releases on UK techno label Brokntoys and the Kirk Degiorgio’s Applied Rhythmic Technology (ART) label , LMA continue a fine run of releases with the “Home Grown” EP . The production aesthetics across the four cuts are second to none; “Civic Society” pairs up dark
atmospherics and driving electro beats that furl into rolling breaks, whilst “Home Grown” is a pacey and bustling burner. More forward motion electro vibes are in evidence on “Lucid” , and EP closer, “Saunton” combines dense ambience, broken beats and acidic bass, all with a gloss and shimmer that makes the music
of London Modular Alliance so engaging.
