Welcome to Large Amount Of Soul a.k.a. L.A.O.S. offical website!
L.A.O.S. is a collaboration of three oldschool beatheadz Abraham, D-bex and JayEm. They have known each other for several years but not until 2002 they understood the obvious fact that they should join forces in music production. They share the same passion for music and their taste of music is expectionally identical. Vocalist&songwriter Alexx joined L.A.O.S. in 2010 and she is featured in most of the vocal tracks that come out from the L.A.O.S. studio. The first track that she released with L.A.O.S. was "Fire and Water", which she wrote the lyrics for, has been viewed more than 500 000 times in youtube and the lyrics have raised interesting discussions.
L.A.O.S. sound is mainly melodic, dancefloor oriented drum and bass but their wide aspect in music wont hold them in one genre. As one wise man said: “There are only two types of music: good and bad”.
