Desire For Infinity

A 9 track dubstep ep (34m 3s) — released September 16th 2013 on Original Cultures

"I can't fake being alive" - Dolor, Midnight.

Lewis James returns to Original Cultures with Desire for Infinity, his second EP for the label following from Krakatoa earlier this year which received support from dance music luminaries including DJ Shadow, Sinistarr, Dawn Day Night, Om Unit and Kidkanevil.

The creative road to Desire for Infinity has not been easy, with the EP undergoing multiple rewrites and changes yet after all was said and done it became clear that this new collection of songs is arguably Lewis James' best work so far. The seven tracks that make up Desire for Infinity may seem disparate at first but there is an underlying unity that soon becomes apparent, a clear desire from the producer to break on through to the other side.

Opener Space Banquet is a gentle offering, a slow jam for digital lovers that leads us into Her Jewels, a track that delicately unfolds towards an epic crescendo, a sonic tale of reaching for the stars. On Midnight, Lewis rekindles the magic that made Powerchild a highlight of his previous EP by once more inviting Dolor on vocal duties. This time around the young American prodigy takes the guise of a dark and mysterious crooner, turning an inspired ode to late night romance and soul searching over a production that is as sensuous as the lyrics. Whole marks the half-way point of the EP and a sharp turn from an introspective quality to the music towards a no-holds-barred dancefloor mindset. Lewis shows his talent for crafting catchy productions that lie somewhere between rave and hip hop. Worse for its part packs more weight and attitude than the entire current trap trend ever could while the EP's closer, All or Nothing, takes Bollywood for a ride in South London, gun cocked and all.

The release is rounded off by two remixes from young Irish talent SertOne and London's LV, two artists currently involved with Original Cultures. Available in digital format with artwork from Paper Resistance.
