Andy Smith records under the name Lxury and released his new EP Playground on house revivalists par excellence Disclosure’s Method Records. Like the Howard brothers, Lxury throws in some massive hooks, rollicking 4/4 drumbeats and lacerating synth stabs into his more psychedelic take on garage. 

The titular single off the EP opens up with a delicate Flying Lotus indebted piano loop that is then overcome by an infectious vocal sample that chants “la la la la” in exultant, childlike yelps. This builds up to an absolutely delirious and gooey chorus – combining a medley of vocals, bubbling synths and clicking drums – that is hedonistic in its kaleidoscopic exuberance. Just like a careening roundabout in Lxury’s playground the experience is a sweet whirlwind, which, despite the impending sense of vertigo, won’t stop you from going for another exhilarating ride.
