Italian producer and Rinse FM regular Lorenzo BITW is making some serious waves this year. Based in Rome, but with a deep love for UK sounds (partly fuelled by two years spent going out in Leeds), his colourful, drum-heavy club productions are grounded in funky but also touch on garage, grime and dubstep.
One of the most successful producers to have emerged from the Classical Trax crucible, he’s since released on labels such as Nervous Horizon and Enchufada, and worked with MCs including Kwam, Bryte and Nico Lindsay.
Short and sweet, Lorenzo’s Hyp Mix acts as both ultimate BBQ soundtrack and new artist primer, with a bunch of fresh cuts and unreleased fire nestling alongside his own remixes and productions. From London to Manchester, Lisbon to Johannesburg, get stuck in below.
