Release Date: 6th December 2019
DRS & LSB, two of the most exciting artists in drum & bass today, introduce 'The Blue Hour' on LSB's Footnotes label. A unique, full length LP collaboration that draws together their shared musical influences of jazz, hip hop, indie, classical, 80's and of course D&B.
"We've been writing music on and off for the last 5 years and following on from the Space Age mixes we did online we felt it was a good time to do a full release together. Initially we just considered doing an EP but then went on tour in America twice in 2 months in early 2019. During this time we had 5 days off in an apartment in Dallas. So we borrowed a sound card and using Del's tour mic began writing together. We got 6 tracks written and took them back to the UK to be developed into final versions.
It was then that we thought we may have an album on our hands and as we both wanted to really grow as artists, push beyond what we've both done before...so The Blue Hour was born.
You'll hear DRS pushing his voice a lot more, personal lyrical content, experimental arrangements and live instrumentation that all combine inside and out of the D&B sphere to make an album we're immensely proud of and hope people enjoy listening to." - LSB 2019

Following the success of A New Day, the first release on footnotes, LSB is back with a second 4 tracker that’s receiving support throughout the scene including Calibre Lenzman, Marky amongst many others.
The EP provides a continuation of Lukes now familiar style of blending musical elements and melancholy with a dancefloor energy. Potshot is highly anticipated having features heavily in a number of DJ’s sets this year.
The release introduces us to Kinross, a collective consisting of producers, musicians, vocalists and DJ’s, create soulful drum and bass through live instruments, eastern influences, and positivity immanent in their sound and lyrics. Luke and Kinross collaborate on the title track Roots.
The release also features freehand artwork from Bradley James, the artwork is inspired by Luke’s musical roots, intertwined by Ivy, the name of luke’s daughter.
