Stuart Braybrooke (artist name LYP) was playing as part of Fatboy Slim’s Palookaville tour. In the green room Norm was looking through the list of artists playing that evening and asked “who is Stuart Braybrooke? That’s a rubbish name, nobody will remember that”. He had a point. In a long search for an original name with meaning he chose to use Lemon Yellow Pea which came from a friend’s child who would sing Lemon Yellow Pea instead of LMNOP when singing her ABC alphabet song. Lemon Yellow Pea has evolved into a record label while LYP is one artist’s name used by Stuart.
As a producer he has progressed his style into a sound which best reflects his life journey and intentions. Moving away from the typical club sound and into the realm of the deeper and emotive side of house music. The music is reflective and submerssive for the listener, with each track heavily based in emotion and thought, rather than logic and cliché. Allow your mind to go deep with the music. Bridge the gap between logic and emotion.
Don’t get me wrong the dancefloor is still a home to LYP, but the artist is creating music as art, which means something different to each person, rather than focussing on how to move the masses.
