Coasting off the reception from their latest EP termed iOA or Invasion of America, Jonney and Oren of Lets Be Friends have impressed the crew at RO for quite some time now. As of late, we cannot seem to visit any other EDM related page without seeing an advert for iOA, or a post about the release. This can only mean one of two things. Either LBF has the most baller PR team in the history of existence, or these dudes just so happen to make some dank tunes. To us, it seems far more logical to go with the latter.
Hailing from across that puddle known as the Atlantic Ocean, Lets Be Friends has been annihilating dance floors everywhere since the release of their first EP at the beginning of 2013. But, that is not exactly where Jonney and Oren’s story originates. According to their Facebook page, the tandem has been crafting their unrelentingly dynamic bass-heavy sound since 2011. It has not been until recently, however, that LBF has caught the attention of the main steam EDM spotlight.
Their sound is nothing short of beautiful chaos, a maelstrom of modulated melodic discord. Using uptempo Electro House and Dubstep influences, Lets Be Friends smashes listeners with canty complextro grime that would cause Franklin Delano Roosevelt himself to stand up and bust a move.
Yikes, too soon?
Big things loom on the horizon for Lets Be Friends. As of yesterday, they have become the newest addition to the monstrous lineup over at Monstercat Records. Expect to be hearing more from them there.
Below we have included some of our favorite recent releases (including the brand new VIP mix of ‘Manslaughter’ and their dope remix to F.O.O.L’s massive track ‘Feelings’) from this London-based production duo. For those unfamiliar with this bass heavy dance project, we hope LBF is soon to make your acquaintance.
