Stuart Howard is the face behind ambient break beat act Lapalux. Tracks that blend a large variety of pads, hip hop based beats, and samples from a slew of sources (anything from commercials/P.S.A.’s to Nicki Minaj). Definitely a guy to check out, his constant output of tracks shows a wide range of techniques in production. The IDM & Glitch Influenced beats glide between moods. His song Ballast is supreme, depicting the beauty and art in samples and abstraction musically. The worldwide electronic shift in the past couple of years is really starting to churn out some great acts. Where many artists fail to be able to nail down this avant garde beat art, Lapalux shows the ability to perpetually pump the tracks out.
