DESCRIPTION

House of Black Lanterns is the brand new project from Dylan Richards, formerly known as King Cannibal (Ninja Tune) and Zilla (Warp).

Retaining the earlier influence of DJ Krust s sprawling drum & bass soundscapes, House of Black Lanterns sees Richards develop his sound to incorporate the dub-inflected techno textures of Rhythm & Sound whilst nodding to the catchy, yet occasionally bleak floorfillers of Trax, all inspired by the modern noir visual style of Michael Mann.

Title track  Truth & Loss  repositions Chicago s footwork sound somewhere between Bristol and Berlin, and is complimented by a D&B-meets-juke remix from Fracture.  Like A Warrior  is a half-stepping collaboration with Trinidadian emcee, Juakali, whilst the EP closes with Richards  techno take on Ghettozoid s domination anthem  Boy Toy .
