Lovesick – LUVSIC002 – Review

Introducing Love Sick Recordings.
A brand new sound is emerging out of Brighton & Hove.
Artists Marchmellow, Riskotheque & Southbound Hangers (Max Mudie & Screen Age) joined forces in late 2011 to come up with a new angle on the world acclaimed Dubstep scene.  A very individual and stylistic label, preferring the use of creative & beautiful melodies layered over dark techy 2-step type beats.

However, we at Soapbox felt the need to review todays release:
LUVSIC002 – Truth – Dont Explain (Riskotheque & Marchmellow Remix)/ Riskotheque & Marchmellow – 1-800 Love

A – Truth – Dont Explain (Riskotheque & Marchmellow Remix)
This one is a definite banger! Combining essences of dubstep & garage layered with soothing vocals, great synth work & sweet melodies flying here there and everywhere. This remix definitely does the original production proud & incorporates a combination of sub driven rhythms & powerful drums. A summer anthem for sure!

AA – 1-800 Love – Riskotheque & Marchmellow
With similar influences to the A side, this tune rounds of this release brilliantly. Again a combination of bass driven beats, beautiful melodies, powerful atmospherics & a terrific use of vocal sampling just to top it off. Riskotheque & Marchmellow have excelled themselves yet again on this one!

Be sure to head over the and grab a T-shirt and a Lovesock for good measure!
