Grouped into the new wave of instrumental Grime producers that have been the talk of the UK music press over the last 12 plus months, Louis ‘Visionist’ Carnell has proven to have a sound that extends far beyond any kind of hackneyed revivalism. Undoubtedly Carnell, who MC’d and produced as a teenager, is hugely inspired by Grime-but its what he does with it that makes him interesting. Starting out in 2011, people first sat up and took notice of him when his single sided 10” ‘Mr.67′ started getting cained in the clubs. A sub-zero 808 roller, it was arguably one of the first harbingers of the fusion style which is so popular today. EP’s for Leisure System, Signal Life and Ramp have followed with each release adding a new element to the hollowed out Grime skeleton that forms Carnell’s template. Techno, Electronica and Ambient dreamscapes have all been woven into his music-which although experimental has never lost its club edge.
