Only 18 years old, rising talent Lamorn releases “Physical Layer,” via mau5trap. Sitting betwixt and between alt-rock and humming electro house, “Physical Layer” is wickedly potent.
Talking about the track’s genesis, Lamorn shares, “This was one of those songs that happened all at once one morning. I remember as soon as I had the main beat, I looped it for the rest of the morning as I did other things around the house. It’s a great memory this track holds for me.”
He came to the attention of mau5trap after submitting a track to Deadmau5, aka Joel Zimmerman, who was immediately captivated. Asking the prodigy to send stems, things happened fast as mau5trap and Seven20 decided they wanted to sign Lamorn. At the same time, Lamorn won ATTLAS and mau5trap’s remix competition for ATTLAS’ hit song, “Half Light,” featuring Alisa Xayalith.
According to Deadmau5, “I came across Lamorn on a mau5trap Monday’s stream. His song ‘Physical Layer’ was so strong I had to ask him to send his session files to make sure it was him. Since then, he’s remixed my song with Kiesza ‘Bridged By A Lightwave.’ Excited to welcome him to the mau5trap family and looking forward to much more from him in the near future.”
A native of Arizona, Lamorn is now the musical protégé of deadmau5.
Along with remixing “Bridged By A Lightwave,” Lamorn has done official remixes for Judah & The Lion’s “Spirit” and SHAED & Two Feet’s “Part Time Psycho.”
“Physical Layer” opens on a thumping rhythm full of heavy oomph, topped by percolating synths and bright, buoyant vocals. A cavernous bassline pushes the melody along with irresistible heft, followed by vibrating synth colors that rattle eardrums. Building harmonic layers infuse the tune with compelling textures.
With “Physical Layer,” Lamorn instantaneously establishes himself as a dynamic producer of potent electro house music.
