Greenhouse Lounge is adept at merging rumbling dub bass lines with pumping electronica beats, breakbeat dynamics, bright emotional melodies met with smart and staggering sample manipulation, and some subtle guitar axe-wizardry. Their music can been described as euphoric; a hypnotic groove-based sound; tightly woven sonic soundscapes that are rich in melody and texture. Born of the new dawn of live electronica music that almost fuses jam, jazz, funk, breakbeats, as well as live dub step recently. Indeed a new frontier.
