A solo electronic producer based in Bristol, LTO first garnered attention and praise in 2011 as part of the Old Apparatus collective with their abstract experimental bass-driven music, submerged in swirls and fragments of otherworldly static and interference.
Now working on solo music as well as with the collective, LTO’s first release under his own name is the characteristically mysterious No Pasa Nada EP, a heady cloud of greyscale sound design, ghostly timbres and deep sonics. It is at once challenging and mesmerising, crafted in part from found sound and field recordings, treated and disguised beyond their origins. The result is a production neither fully organic nor mechanic, with a nocturnal miasma and a fierce intellect.
The No Pasa Nada name and track titles – common Spanish verbs – are informed by LTO’s backpacking travels through South America, as much a field recording excursion as a cultural tour.
