London-based trio LV present a mix of grime, international bass music and South African productions, filtered through fast-paced soca drums, heavy bass and intense vocals. The energetic mix begins with their 2010 hit featuring South African vocalist Okmalumkoolkat, Boomslang, before swinging between kwaito beats from Umlazi-native trio Big Nuz and Cape Town's Big Space, and the more familar sounds of Brenmar & DJ Sliink's Bait and Want You Back from Kansas City's Norrit.

LV's second album, Sebenza builds on the success of Routes, their 2011 album narrated by beat-poet Joshua Idehen. Featuring familiar vocals from Johannesburg's Okmalumkoolkat, Sebenza marks their first full-length release on Hyperdub Records, also the home of Laurel Halo, Cooly G, Burial, Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland.
