There's a newcomer to Flying Lotus' Brainfeeder label, and right now he's king of the hill. His name is Teebs, and his first album, 'Ardour' is about to drop. For anyone new to the burgeoning L.A. electronic scecne, (as of yet unnamed but still they try... "beat music" "bass music" "spiritual electronica" "L.A. dubstep" etc...) Teebs' record is a perfect entry point. Flying Lotus, the grandaddy of this musical community, creates very dense records which can be offputting to the casual listener. 'Ardour', however, needs no sugar to go down. It is a lush, and viscerally beautiful album which sounds like a space jungle. Teebs is a master of establishing a musical enviroment, and he restrains the impulse to fill those enviroments up. The result is a very satisfying listen for anyone interested in hip-hop, dance music, neo-soul, dubstep or more. Anyone who drives around Los Angeles at night should definitely cop this gem.
