'Apocalypse/If I Fall Under'

J Lloyd is the hidden architect behind some of your favourite tracks.

Having produced Jungle's two superlative albums - alongside sundry other projects - he's underlined his studio approach as one of British music's most potent instruments.

So when lockdown arrived, J Lloyd simply sealed off the door to his studio, and did what he does best - create.

New mixtape 'Kosmos' lands on Friday (July 10th) and it's a stunning display of intense creativity, 25 tracks that span the full spectrum of pop culture.

Produced and recorded over a 72 hour period at the beginning of April, each track flows into the next, the over-arching structure guiding his studio urges.

A project with a sustained sense of atmosphere, we're able to preview something special from 'Kosmos'.

'Apocalypse/If I Fall Under' are two tracks that flow into one another, opaque alt-pop riddles with fresh innovation and a stellar sense of melody.

The visuals pilfer VHS footage of 90s rave culture, and this neat retro-futurist aesthetic is the perfect counterpoint to J Lloyd's music.
