With each new L-Vis 1990 track we are a bit more astonished by dude's versatility: a brief gander into our iTunes has him dabbling in a vast assortment of kwaito (dub), hyperbass (and its death) and "dubblestep" (his own invention) whilst nipping at the fringe of various other genres and reinventing his own united groove (that was wordplay). With his remix of Gucci Vump's glitchy dance version of Yiddish staple "Sha! Shtil!" (available now from the impeccable Sound Pellegrino), he does something completely new again, stretching it out into a warm pulse of house with a flipped-out melody, channeling these chicks singing in Yiddish into total dancefloor divas. So what's next, microfunky? Happy doomcore? Dalston Touch? GO IN DUDE.
