Moving to London in 2011 from his Italy, Pierfranco Demita, better known as Lock Eyes, didn’t waste any time in cementing himself as a key player in the capital’s underground club scene.
With close affiliations to parties such as ‘Find Me In The Dark’ of Corsica Studios, Rituals and Kode_1 Club, Lock Eyes’ own music has landed via labels like Clone Records, Lobster theremin, Blind Jack’s Journey and Lost Palms, as he’s built up a catalogue of dreamy club interpretations that navigate their way through the worlds of acid house, melancholic electro, dub techno and beyond.
The latest producer to be recruited to Rhythm Section’s sister imprint International Black, Lock Eyes’ twisted four-tracker 12″ counts as the label’s 7th vinyl release and truly works to their “head down” club music focus, as Lock Eyes’ fusion of breaks, basslines, and starry pads come designed to untangle any dancefloor.
Welcoming him to our mix series, the Italian producer works up black magic from J Wiltshire, Jupiter 4, Piezo, Kamikaze Space Programme and more.
