Luka – Not A Word

Talented musician Luka offers for free his new track, Not A Word.

I wrote this track end of 2014. I spent a few days London for a gig at Village Underground as well as a live set on NTS radio,” LUKA said in an email to The FADER. “I recorded the samples for the track at home but it wasn’t until this trip that I started jaming with them. The vocal on the track is by Christine Denamur, she recorded it in Belgium. However I wasn’t thinking of releasing it until I recently started playing it live. It works really well in the club and the people were asking about the track so I decided to put it out… It’s hard for me to say what a track is actually about. It’s rather a feeling that inspires me. There’s no story behind it. It’s a certain feeling I try to capture in order to be able to share it rather than putting it into words.”

“Not A Word” is available for free download here. Listen below.

The Acid – Ra (Luka Remix)

ACID

Minimalist electronic trio, The Acid’s new single RA (released this June via. Infectious) has been given the LUKA rework.

The Acid are back with RA, the next release from the bands debut album Liminal, released earlier this year via Infectious Music/Mute Records in North America, to widespread critical acclaim.

With his take on RA, artist/producer LUKA injects layers of atmospheric percussion into the acoustically driven original for a dreamy down tempo edit, looping in the soft vocals that coo “come on, come on”. 23-year-old Luka’s remix pushes boundaries of genre fusing elements of haunting, synth-pop and hazy R&B.

The Acid came together as a partnership between Brit Adam Freeland, L.A and producer Steve Nalepa. First appearing in 2013 with their debut self-titled EP, the group quickly followed up with the release of Liminal, a sonically drenched body of work with clear nods to artists such as Portishead, Aphex Twin and Thom Yorke, that crosses over a range of genres, which include everything from techno and R&B to deep house and beyond.

Luka’s re-work of RA is the first in a series of remixes, with more to come from Alex Banks, David August, Weval and Olaf Stuut ahead of their summer gigs and festival dates including Appletree Garden Festival, DE and Secret Garden Party, UK.
