Boomkat Product Review:
Considering how ubiquitous his sound is right now, it may come as a surprise that 'Forever You' is L-Vis 1990's first solo release proper in 2010. Granted, he's a had a heap of killer remixes, but solo drops are subject to more lengthy controls and these five have made the grade. His knack for finding that balance of suited sophistication and gum-soled dirt is spread in varying degrees over the five tracks. While the lead cut is packed with big room potential, largely from the vocal and gleaming production values, 'Into the Stars' is rubbed with a dirtier bag of drums synched to bustling hip-house rap samples and 'Do You Remember' gives a wink to the late night dancers with grubby acid bass and direct driving rhythms. 'Reprise' meanwhile shoots for the lazers with surging trancey techno arpeggios offset with a rugged swingjack flavour, and then there's a naked dub of the title track for the DJs. There's no halfstepping with this gear, and in the most righteous sense of the word, it's strictly for the dancers!
