Lit City Trax, the label headed by DJ Rashad, DJ Spinn, and J-Cush, has just announced its third release. And guess what? It’s not by one of the TEK boys, and it’s not even footwork. In fact, the artist isn’t even from the US. His name is Visionist (a.k.a. Louis Carnell), and he’s a London-born producer, DJ, remixer, and label owner (Lost Codes) who, according to my charts and graphs, has been steadily rising the past couple years.
The I’m Fine EP features six tracks of dark, expansive club music — one of which was written with Fatima Al Qadiri — that explores the stages of grief through the leftover haze of grime, dubstep, funky house, and footwork. The EP closely follows the release of two other EPs from this year, Crying Angels and Snakes (on Berlin label Leisure System), and is the first installment of two on Lit City Trax, with the other expected early next year. This particular bad boy’s due September 3, so look for it when it drops.

01. I’m Fine
