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.
