After his huge i-DJ mix for us last year, Lokane has been hard at work in the studio. After remixes for the likes of Addison Groove and Scratcha DVA, the London-based producer returns to his Nervous Horizons home with the huge Visions EP. Taken from the EP, i-D is pleased to share the monstrous "In The Trap." There aren't many tracks that would sample Nicki Minaj and get away with it but Lokane has pulled it off in spectacular style. His sound crosses the worlds of grime, techno and UK bass music all broken up into the Lokane signature style and the Visions EP is a perfect example of the burgeoning producer's ability to craft a deconstructed sound pallet into a club-ready work of art.

Out today, grab a copy of the Visions EP here.
