MIKE LUCK – CITYSCAPE
|That he cut his teeth at French label Kitsuné and Belgium’s Eskimo Recordings should come as no surprise to anyone with even a passing knowledge of these labels. Both have a reputation for nurturing quirky, cutting-edge electronica.|
Cityscape is a boundless mini-album, packed with dreamy, spacious electronica that simultaneously relaxes and energises. It synthesises perfectly, from the subtle dub grooves of Mind Traveller to the polytempic Phase Change. It’s satisfyingly cohesive, using warm bass and synth drones to ground each track to a central concept.
The title track includes a spectacular animated music video made by Maxmana, member of Amsterdam based interactive art collective Zesbaans. You can watch the video on YouTube and Vimeo.
Future plans for Mike Luck include a foray into the world of music production for games and movies and the production of a compelling live show. If Cityscape is your introduction into Mike Luck’s musical landscape, expect to be travelling alongside this fresh talent on an exciting trajectory this year.
Mike Luck – Cityscape is out from today on Be Yourself Music and available via Beatport, iTunes, Traxsource, Deezer and all other online music retailers.
