VARIOUS / ALLO LOVE: VOLUME FOUR

The fourth instalment of our Allo Love series sees our queen of dark, electronic soul, Lea Lea, step up to the plate to shed some light in to her mysterious musical world. As ever with this lady, there’s nothing predictable about her selection, whether it be the rasping, bluesy vocals and moody bass of ex-Belleruche vocalist Kathrin de Boer, the deconstructed ambient offerings of Japan’s Yosi Horikawa or the up-tempo dancehall beats of DJ Vadim, Lea Lea will always keep us guessing!

Echoes On

Add to that the laidback soulful delights of French producer iZem, the melancholic electronica of (another erstwhile Belleruche member) Keenya and Brownswood recording artist Anushka’s haunting apocalyptic club anthem Atom Bombs, and you’ve got something of an insight in to what makes Lea Lea tick.

We also gave our very own east ender free choice of the full Wah Wah 45s back catalogue, and she didn’t disappoint with choice cuts from Resonators, Paper Tiger, Hackney Colliery Band (remixed by Scrimshire) and The Gene Dudley Group, all of which say something about this young lady’s eclectic and rather fine musical taste. Oh, and her very own vocal prowess is also on display, both on her recent album highlight, One In Three, and collaboration with Hospital Records rising star Other Echoes on the sublime Run & Hide.
