L-Vis 1990 is an electro-bass producer based in London, England, whose style draws from U.K. styles such as drum'n'bass and grime as well as U.S.
styles such as Chicago house and Baltimore club. Born James Connolly and originally hailing from Brighton, England, he began DJing as a teenager and later began making beats of his own. He made his commercial recording debut in 2008 with an eponymous four-track EP on the label Très Cool. The following year he released several more EPs, including United Groove on Mad Decent, Compass/Zahonda on Sound Pellegrino, and the Bok Bok split release Night Slugs on Dress 2 Sweat. In addition, he made a name for himself as a first-rate remixer. Some of his best-known remixes from this period include Gucci Vump's "Sha! Shtil!," Passion Pit's "Little Secrets," Crystal Fighters' "Xtatic Truth," Frankmusik's "3 Little Words," and Filthy Dukes' "Tupacrobotclubrock." His productions appeared on several mix albums, most notably Freq Nasty's FabricLive 42 (2008) and Buraka Som Sistema's FabricLive 49 (2009). His own Neon Dreams album appeared in late 2011, as his label Night Slugs hosted releases from Jam City, Kingdom, and Egyptrixx. Through 2012 and 2013, he continued to release EPs for Island, Night Slugs, and Clone's Jack for Daze series. ~ Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
