Just saying “Electronic” is not enough. The different aspects of the genre are endless, & for NYC-based producer Lee Bannon, exploring those new directions is exactly his mission. Not being tied to one genre is a trend of Bannon’s. Gaining his popularity initially in hip hop with his work with Joey Bada$$, Curren$y + others, Lee then ventured off to pursue his solo project of drum & bass + ambient production. His latest release, Alternate/Endings, catapulted Lee’s career, making him a popular staple not only to press & other musicians, but fans alike.
With positive reviews in major outlets & tastemakers, Lee Bannon became a household name for lovers of drum & bass + other sub-genres of electronic music. On the heels of Alternate/Endings’ release, Lee immediately hit the studio to begin creating his new EP, Main/Flex.
Main/Flex is not simply a drum & bass EP. It combines traditional drum & bass elements with ambient passages & hypnotizing melodies. Its inspiration comes not only from other music, but from film, art, & worldly issues.
The EP, mastered by acclaimed producer & engineer Daddy Kev, features appearances by Hak of Ratking, Charlie Benante of Anthrax & Deejay Earl of TekLife. Look for Main/Flex in stores and digitally worldwide on November 4th.
