about

The diversity of the beats and bass scene is reflected in the Rotterdam based label Lowriders Recordings. The new release by Know V.A. is a perfect example of the ever shifting and developing scene. Know V.A. and their mixture of styles is an obvious concurrence.
The first release on LOW by Know V.A. is called "O horizon" and is filled with blunt drum-programming like it was 1994 completed with threatening tone contrasted with field recordings and all this together into a gritty dancefloor set.

The name "O horizon", is also known as the forest floor, which is the lowest layer of a rainforest. The "O" stands for organic matter and is a place of spontaneous growth and continuous decay. The constant struggle for sunlight resembles the dynamics of the EP.

Know V.A. are listed by Djbroadcast as Dutch producers to watch for 2014. Their recent 'Slowjamz' release (and remix ep) got favored by artists like Plastician, Darkhouse Family and DJ Shadow. They are resident dj's for HOAX in Amsterdam and shared stage with big names in the scene.
The choices for the remixes really add power to the release. Dj Earl & Dj Taye takes the drum sounds and the melody to another consciousness. American grime producer Rabit takes the floor filler Donkey Kong apart and creates a spooky masculine abstraction.

about

Lowriders Recordings Rotterdam, Holland

With Lowriders Recordings we're on the looking for freshness.The music we like is between styles not your plain stuff. So we wanna hear the space between the genres like dubstep, funky, abstract beats, hip hop, skweee, electronics, 8bit, house, etc.
Main idea is to get some amazing edgy stuff from all over the world.
It should be skewed, crooked, mad and freaky as hell!
