LO – Know You Better
German producer, LO, has released his new single, ‘Know You Better’ on the 11th October via 2DEX. His latest release shows a different side to the already varied producer, with mellow production, sensual vocals, carefully placed guitars and ambient synth coming together to create a calming RnB hit.
LO started his career as a producer in the late 2000’s. His style is best described as wild mixture of UK Bass, House, RnB and Pop. Over the last few years, he collaborated with artists like Adrian Daniel, Rainy Milo and Novaa. This then lead to releases with prestigious labels “Tommy Boy Records” and “Majestic Casual Records”. These releases helped LO solidify his name within the electronic music scene, with LO gaining support from some of the scenes biggest names like Hardewell, Martin Garrix, Satin Jackets as well as tastemakers TSYN and dynmk. His Debut Album Lights (with YOSIE) received broad attention within the blogosphere, which accumulated in over 7 Million streams. With his fresh approach on Pop music, LO is definitely someone to keep an eye on.
The hook for ‘Know You Better’ is introduced instantly, played on bright and vibrant guitar that really encapsulate how gentle and pleasant this song is. Next comes the classic sounding percussive clicks, quickly joined by the rest of the production, buckling the listener in for a smooth and easy ride. For me, what makes this an RnB hit, is the production on the chorus. The way that the calming vocals are controlled, ‘riding’ the rhythm of the drums is what really stands out. There are more instrumental layers during this chorus, however the control on the production makes sure that the steady, relaxing and sedative tone is maintained, allowing the listener to fully explore the sonics without getting lost.
Make sure you get a chance to listen to LO and ‘Know You Better’, the versatile producer is extremely talented and i’m sure you’ll love his entire back catalogue!
