A genre of music formed in the mid 2000s in London, England when bands strived to bridge the gap between band and DJ. With the prominence of electronic music over the last decade bands in London became more and more influenced by DJs as opposed to other bands. The name itself comes from Americans abbreviating London Town to 'Loto' mixed with the short hand 'tech' coming from the obvious new technological influences.
Man did you see that James Blake performance? It was so lototech!
