H IS FOR LOL HAMMOND

Lol Hammond has appeared before as a member of the influential Drum Club and Girl Eats Boy; will again for Slab and Spiral Tribe. But here he is on his own, doing sounds more akin to ambient than anything else.

 

From his MySpace: Born in North London in 1965, multi-instrumentalist, Lol began making electronic music with legendary renegade sound system ‘Spiral Tribe’ in 1991. Around the same time, he formed the ‘Drum Club’ with London DJ Charlie Hall. They also started the acclaimed club of the same name. Releasing three critically-acclaimed albums and touring the world extensively with the likes of Orbital and Prodigy, The early singles (on renowned label, Guerilla Records) ‘U Make Me Feel So Good’ and ‘Alchemy’ (complete with Orbital mix) became instant club anthems.
 

 

Lol has also had music featured in many movies including ‘The World is Not Enough’, ‘Southwest 9’ (which also features a cameo appearance by the man himself, as messianic DJ whipping the Brixton crowds into a frenzy), ‘Halloween’, ‘Football Factory’, ‘It’s All Gone Pete Tong’. Obsessed with film from an early age, he has worked as a music supervisor for exciting British production company, Vertigo Films for the past five years. He has been music supervisor on four feature films to date: “Southwest 9”, critically acclaimed Brit flick, “Football Factory”, Danish movie “Pusher 2” & “It’s All Gone Pete Tong”. Lol also scored the trailer for the bond movie “The World is Not Enough” where a speed boat chase down the River Thames ends with them crashing through the MI5 building at Vauxhall.
