Listening Post

Even if your day’s been… like… totally chill, you should listen to ‘Calm FM’ from London dub trio Lifestyle

Mellow hype

In the current edition of Loud And Quiet (June 2017) David Zammitt met with South London dub trio Lifestyle.

Things are moving fast for Lewis Rainsbury, Luke Brennan and new, third member Adrian.

They told David about their mellow debut mixtape, noting that it’s already out of date. At that point, ‘Calm FM’ wasn’t even out, and the guys were already keen to move on. The group have posted it online today though, so for those that read the feature, you can now hear what we heard in it, and last month’s £45 single ‘DLR’.

“I’m actually over nostalgia now,” says Rainsbury. “You can’t dabble for too long. You need to move on as a human.”
