Ahh, London, what is it about you that makes you eternally rife with spectacular new talent, and rich in sensational new music? The moment I first heard Le Son’s Without A Sound, I had a feeling these forward thinking, artfully dexterous musicians might hail from that city. Sure enough, Emily Ady and Liam Fergus are from South London, and their bass heaving, soulful quivering electro is thoroughly enchanting. Without A Sound reminds me of Little Dragon’s downtempo minimalist pieces, but with the ravishing opulence of London Grammar’s trip hop and a touch of Lapsley’s haunting depths. I’m fixated in place, “lost in this empty room” alongside Le Son, except this spacious box is full of sound. It resonates from the rafters, echoes against the walls, and buries itself deep inside me. Without A Sound can be purchased, here, on super cool limited edition 7″ square record via squareglass.

South London has always been a place where creative juices seem to flow freely, resulting in groundbreaking music that eventually trickles out to the rest of the world to make great impact. Le Son is a brand new duo from exactly that place, and their second song, Without A Sound, is a spellbinding track that seems to blend the minimalist post-dubstep history of the region (ie. James Blake) with the crisp trip hop elegance of London Grammar. Add in a touch of Little Dragon’s enchanting Twice and Le Son has me fully entrapped and excited for their music. If they continue turning out music like this, then they’re certainly an act to keep a watch on.
