What's so good?

Sydney-based/Canadian-born beat-maker Guerre (Lavurn Lee) has been slowly building a reputation as one of Australia's best up-and-coming producers. This reputation has seen him give support slots for the likes of Toro Y Moi, Bonobo and WU LYF. He also collaborated on Collarbone's recent single "Hypothermia", which we brought you last month.

Already sporting a significant back catalogue of unreleased tracks, his latest offering is "Rashad (Loose Pace)", which can be downloaded for free from his Bandcamp. Lee possesses one of the most haunting voices I've ever heard, a valuable tool when you make gorgeous downtempo music. His production talent is undeniable, and there's a beautiful floating vibe to this track, another fantastic addition to his collection. His combined use of keys, beats and his voice draw significant James Blake comparisons.

"Rashad (Loose Pace)" will be part of a two-track release on November 14 (via Yes Please), with more substantial work scheduled for the new year.
