Lewis Aung - False Dilemma
Situated in the overlaps of breakbeat, garage, and drum and bass, “False Dilemma” is a sparse and powerful statement from emerging, Bristol-based artist Lewis Aung — and while Aung might be emerging, he doesn’t do so lightly. Filled with gritty, snarling basslines, crunchy breaks, and effective chops, “False Dilemma” feels like the rebirth of a rave classic. Fragmented vocal stabs and scream-like synths fall effortlessly between each hit of the stark beat, and satisfyingly accent, ride, and bring home every break and drop. There’s a familiarity in this production style, but it’s one that pays homage without feeling like a duplicate of something that already exists. With several upcoming projects in the works from this talented producer, “False Dilemma” is one effective way to say "Hello."
