Lewis James – ‘Searchtower’/’Templar III’ [none60 Records]

Lewis James – ‘Searchtower’/’Templar III’ [none60 Records]

Producers looking to video games and film for inspiration is nothing new – see Burial’s Metal Gear Solid obsession – but Lewis James has a background in making those sounds in the first place, and he brings that unique sound set to bear on his new tracks for none60.

none60 brought him on board after the sci-fi atmospherics and depth-charge bassline of ‘Searchtower’ were played out by Jon1st, with label bosses Silent Dust moving fast to snap him up. ‘Templar III’ followed, a grandiose slab of half-time ambiance which gives way to a sloping bassline halfway through, and brought the video game elements to the fore – Assassin’s Creed anyone?
