First appearing on Wallwork’s Astral Plane mix in October of last year, Lloyd SB and Wallwork‘s “The Portal” has been one of the most desired dubs around for our team so were overjoyed when the Nervous Horizon folks sent over the promo for Lloyd’s forthcoming Boida Flare EP and it included the track. With a track on the most recent Boxed compilation and support from a huge range of radio shows and DJs, the release of Boida Flare feels perfectly timed and it’s hard not to imagine the EP taking over the clubs and airwaves further over the coming weeks and months. With our longtime obsession in mind, we’ve got “The Portal” on premiere today and if this hyper speed trapped out monstrosity didn’t catch your attention back in October it certainly will now. Based on a single, insatiable lead groove, the track is both a full frontal assault and an exercise in restraint, utilizing as few elements as possible for maximum jump up energy, seeming to exist more in the jungle/drum and bass sphere despite its familiar sound palette. Boida Flare is out June 3 and can pre-ordered here.
