It Gets More Cloudy...

A 11 track beats & breaks album (50m 53s) — released July 6th 2015 on Donky pitch

On July 6th Lockah follows up his recent 'And Blue Brindle Too' EP (which picked up support from Fader & Noisey) with a new long player, "It Gets More Cloudy...', which furthers his stylistic progression, integrating a host of live instruments and vintage synthesizers into his set up - all recorded in a remote Sussex studio featuring guitar by Mount Bank and drums from Lockah himself.

IGMC finds Lockah reaching for pop driven melodies, delivering joyous moments of funked out basslines, ear worm synth lines and beats drawing from a rich palette of electronic music from the past and present creating original music with a unique personality.

Following a series of releases on Mad Decent, Mishka, Activia Benz & Donky Pitch as well as his own Tuff Wax imprint, Lockah released his debut album 'Yahoo Or The Highway' via Donky Pitch in 2014, gaining support from Pitchfork, XLR8R, Dummy & Resident Advisor. He has remixed Hundred Waters, Danny Brown, Jaw Jam & Slugabed, provided guest mixes for Diplo on BBC Radio 1 & Dummy Mag and played shows across the UK, Europe and Australia.
