The Indie Beats section is a point of pride and originality for LessThan3.

As more producers fall off the [...]

Better known to the world as Four Tet, the producer has a knack for creating slow-winding head trips laden with off-timed percussion and deep emotion, leaving his listeners stunned and amazed. His remix for Ultraísta’s Smalltalk, for which he just released a video (below), is no different; [...]

Indietronica and glitch hop are two loosely defined genres that can be hard to find, but they are very easy to get into if you know where to look. In 2011, the scene witnessed an abundance of new talent as well as the return of older acts to new levels of prominence. Since there is a lot of cross-over between the two genres, we combined [...]

Pretty Lights - I Know the Truth
It’s one thing for house producers to remix house tunes, or even trance and dubstep tracks, but what happens when you take two incredibly distinct styles from say… Objekt, one of the year’s most intriguing young artists, and that of Radiohead the group that is… you know… Radiohead. The short answer is: a post here on LT3. Objekt’s rework [...]
