With positive reviews in major outlets like Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Stereogum, SPIN and other tastemakers, Lee Bannon became a household name for lovers of drum & bass and other sub-genres of electronic music. On the heels of Alternate/Endings' release, Lee immediately hit the studio to begin creating his new EP, Main/Flex.
Main/Flex is not simply a drum & bass EP. It combines traditional drum & bass elements with ambient passages and hypnotizing melodies. Its inspiration comes not only from other music, but from film, art, and worldly issues. Its a distillation of his ability to "call wherever he rests his head home, be it D&B, hip-hop, or elsewhere," as Pitchfork noted, but finds him borrowing aspects from all of these genres, rather than settling on a singular sound.
The EP, mastered by acclaimed producer and engineer Daddy Kev, features appearances by Hak of Ratking, Charlie Benante of Anthrax and Deejay Earl of TekLife. Look for Main/Flex in stores and digitally worldwide on November 4th, 2014.
