Lakosa is a name that has been gaining prominence in ‘UK bass’ circles recently, both for his solo and collaborative projects. His ‘Live Wire’ track produced alongside iO is forthcoming on Audio Culture, and has received support from Disclosure and Mary Anne Hobbs amongst a host of others.
As both a DJ and a producer, the UK-based artist draws influences from house, garage, dnb & hip-hop. With various releases scheduled including a production on Kerri Chandler’s new label and a recent guest mix for Mary Anne Hobbs’ XFM show, 2012 is shaping up to be a breakthrough year.
His contribution to the Hyp Mix Series is a reminder of how healthy the worlds of bass-driven house and techno are at the moment. Featuring a well-crafted selection from Thefft, Hackman, Jack Dixon, South London Ordnance, WNCL and much more.
