λουκίντ


ο lukid συστήνεται γράφοντας εν συντομία τα εξής:
"After completing a thoroughly uninspiring music technology course in Leeds, a despondent Lukid returned to North London with some big decisions to make. Would he defy his tutor’s doubts and pursue a career in the cut-throat music industry? Would he surrender to the inevitable and begin the dreaded job-hunt? Or would he follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and live his life in the Socialist underworld, eating his lunch from a tin box and referring to his friends as comrades?
Lukid decided that these decisions could wait, and instead immersed himself in a world of daytime TV, late-night beat making, and 24-hour existential dread. Inspired by obsessions with artists such as Can, Madlib, Theo Parrish and Autechre, Lukid spent many a lonely night hunched over his midi keyboard, layering up wonky beats and squeezing out woozy chords".

και το forcedexposure τον παρουσιάζει σαν σωτήρα της epileptronica [που είναι ωραίος όρος αλλά μόνο αυτός που τον έγραψε ξέρει τι ακριβώς είναι]:
"It's time to get your teenage kickdrums right through the night with the Little Lord Fauntleroy of electronica, Lukid. Weighing in with a debut album of epileptronica and hiccup-hop this prodigious talent from south London is so youthful, we've had to hastily cobble together a child protection policy just to release it. Sounding like the awkward teenage son of a civil partnership between Dabrye, Theo Parrish and Dougie Howser MD, Onandon is an unforgettable greatest hits collection of a misshapen teenage: replete with dusty loops, off-kilter riddims and unidentified clicky-clacky noises. While most teenagers struggle with cracking voices, strange bodily changes and the ever-present lure of guiltily beating themselves off to the lingerie section of the Argos catalogue, Lukid was stuck to his computer screen pleasuring himself in an entirely different manner. In fact, during sleepovers with his schoolmates, Lukid would arrive with a sampler discreetly tucked between the pages of his regulation copy of Escort, and would secretly sneak off to the toilets to edit together drum loops from obscure folk records while his friends played endless bouts of Extreme Soggy Biscuit. And while you might expect most young producers these days to be either knocking out tomytronic drill and bass or inane bop-a-long indie in regional accents, Lukid's voice is a far cry from the norm. There's a shocking maturity to the tracks which bely his youthfulness: like seeing a baby reciting Baudrillard or a chinchilla juggling swords. This is no freak sideshow for pimple-popping. Onandon is chock full of timeless instrumental slow-chug classics which might even have your Dad tapping his foot along to and remarking 'ooh, that's got a good beat.'"
ο lukid είναι ένας πιτσιρικάς που στη δεύτερη φωτο από αριστερά, δεύτερη σειρά, μοιάζει σαν γιος του θέμου αναστασιάδη [πρόσεχε χωρίστρα...]. φτιάχνει instrumental hip hop. και μην σε παραπλανεί το μαλλί, είναι καλός. το ντεμπούτο άλμπουμ του λέγεται onandon και είναι εδώ.
