Coming on 2 July 2021, “Green light” is a new song featuring Neil Francis. This song will be premiered on Synth City with Rob Harvey on 8 June 2021 between 8 and 10pm BST over at www.phoenixfm.com.
Shortly after broadcast, the LorD and Master BandCamp page will be accepting pre-orders for the maxi-single, which contains remixes by LorD and Master, dEk101, Nature of Wires, Eden, SoftWave, Scyia and Rob Bradley of Shelter along with a bonus track, “Taken for granted”.
Imagine a video game, epic and sweeping in its story, an open-world role-playing game with blistering battles between good and evil, hordes of flying terrors and a strange, alien landscape to explore. Now imagine that game’s soundtrack, but it’s by LorD and Master.
That was the challenge set me by my partner, one Dr Peter Nugent. He told me to write a score for a game that, well, doesn’t exist. I was to imagine the game and its soundtrack, based on twenty titles he provided me. Titles like “Flight of the sirens” and “An ode to bread” might conjure some strange imagery and certainly lent themselves to interesting compositions. So, on 2 April 2021, you get to hear Ten80, the soundtrack to a non-existent game.
Ten80 is an album unlike all other LorD and Master offerings in that it is totally instrumental. The eighteen tracks (two of which comprise two of the provided titles each) are separate compositions with some linking themes. With pixel-artwork by the aforementioned Dr Nugent, Ten80 promises to be an interesting listen for you, but if you’re expecting a bunch of four-minute pop songs, please note the above description!

So, as you can see, things have changed around here. As time goes on, I’ll be adding music and videos from the past and present, but in the meantime, if you’re looking for all the information, please check out the Knowledge wiki, which is a pretty exhaustive database of LorD and Master comings and going, works since 2009 and everything you could need to get to know the artist and their works, including lyrics, album art, release dates, insights into individual songs and lovely stuff like that.
