From esoteric club night to a figurehead of the LA underground, the Low End Theory collective and residency has undergone a meteoric rise since it began nearly 10 years ago.
In light of this, we're extremely #blessed to bring you an exclusive Low End Theory x Serato collaboration - not to mention the first Low End Theory vinyl in history, available now on the Serato Online Store.
Featuring original joints from residents The Gaslamp Killer, Daddy Kev, D-Styles and Nobody, it's a collection of jazz-inspired hip hop instrumentals, heavy extra-terrestrial beats, acappellas, and scratch sentences. Comprising music on the A and C sides and Serato Control Tone on the B and D sides, this is both a showcase of signature L.E.T sounds and an imaginative tool for DJs.
The vinyl is a unique black and white splatter, with original jacket and label artwork by surreal collagist Albane Simon.
We caught up with the Low End Theory crew during the second annual L.E.T Festival last year to discuss the pressing in depth. Check out the interview and watch some mesmerising scenes from this visually stunning showcase below.
