Lee Bannon's one of the most exciting young producers out there - who else can you think of who got his start as Joey Bada$$'s go-to producer before gaining a foothold releasing everything from classic hip hop-influenced beats to ambient drone sketches? Rightfully, he's just been signed to the London label Ninja Tune, who are releasing this new EP, Place/Crusher, and will drop his Alternate / Endings full length December 9. You can stream Place/Crusher now, and it's highly recommended - put on headphones, crank it up, and listen to 23 minutes of Lee's masterful, out-of-this-world integration of ambient pieces, clubby bangers, and arty, skittering apocalyptic R&B. Check it out.
UPDATE: download Place/Crusher for free here.
