I’ve had the pleasure of seeing LondonBridge behind the decks for packed audiences at Exchange and Sound alike, but the Space Yacht mastermind’s set on Tuesday night was quite possibly his best yet. Spinning at 11pm as the club began to fill up, he brought the collective energy of the crowd from eager to outright ecstatic as he delivered a range of house gems on the fly (seriously, some of the tracks he dropped arrived in his inbox mere hours before Sound opened its doors). Amidst all of the quality music pumping through the clubs speakers, though, his original tunes were the ones that continued to catch my attention.
Grounded in deep, wonky grooves that are a perfect complement to the sweaty, lustful aura of beautiful people that he routinely performs for, his newest takes that sound to a new level. Called “Treat Me Right”, it has all the trappings of a club hit from the playful percussion to its down-pitched vocals narrating a wild night out. The song’s album artwork makes it readily obvious that it’s a release through Dim Mak which is a fact that I’m stoked on – beyond his keen ear for ace house tunes, LondonBridge’s passion for electronic music couldn’t be more apparent, so it’s a well-deserved platform for an essential voice in the Los Angeles scene and beyond.
