Oh, it’s like parkour! Suddenly, it clicks – organic ambient textures quickly juxtaposed with broken beats and forward propulsion of drum’n’bass. Leap from surface to surface with the just-released sounds of young, rising Sierra Nevada-born talent Guy LaBorde. Guy actually comes to us from legendary producer King Britt, who’s now teaching at University of California […]
