J LLOYD - KOSMOS
Format: TRANSPARENT BLUE 140G VINYL
Catalogue No.: JLL001V
Release Date: 27th November 2020
J Lloyd, one half of the duo behind British group Jungle, shares his new mixtape Kosmos, produced and recorded over a 72-hour period in early April 2020.
The project is an exercise on a continuous, unfiltered flow of recording, where each track flows and develops naturally into the next idea.<p>
The mixtape was written and recorded in order, meaning the atmosphere and tempo of one track influences the next.
