This is the work of an extremely talented composer and producer, with an ear for both electronic and organic musicality, and a general passion for music in all of its forms – this translates beautifully as you let this music work its magic for you. Absolutely worth losing yourself within for a while.
Ltronnika takes listeners down a decidedly retro, multi-layered pathway of electronic sound design with this latest release. Effectively encapsulating the very essence of exploration, the track is distinctly varied and sees numerous different sections and samples emerge as it moves through its three and a half minute journey.
There’s a poetic undertone to the whole thing, metaphors and imagery pour through, and the quieter moments lead entrancingly towards those with notable rhythm and vibrancy.
His songs showcase an enormous attention to detail that is rarely seen in the hip-hop world. More than that, he’s a selfless musician often letting his featured artists take the spotlight on his tracks. Through all of his songs, nowhere is this truer than on Let You Be.
Villasante’s organically deep yet emotionally loaded voice, combined with this creatively free approach to music, helps make this a mesmerising and deeply calming listening experience. Well worth exploring at volume.

There’s a subtle sense of rising energy – the lyrics, the very concept and title of the song, and the consistent movement musically throughout, all helps this calmness evolve into an incredibly uplifting mood.
The artistic threads run deep, and still there are enough moments of melody and rhythm, along with intriguing, bizarre and memorable ideas, to keep it entertaining and holding tight to your attention right through to the end.
You get a sense that Lux Thugs follows his own rules entirely, but does so with skill and consideration. These bars are thoughtful, clever, honest and reflective – the music meets the needs of this conceptual depth brilliantly.
Liana&Moods thinks deeply on the world and her role within it, and this shows in her music – it connects with those thoughtful parts of us that like to escape into isolated consideration for a while.
This beat gives the composition a pulse, a notable level of humanity that drives things along. You feel as if the soundscape is slowly enveloping you, and that somehow your heart-rate is rising in the process – perhaps perfectly well encapsulating whatever it is that the word Dive conjures up for the listener.
Fusing an electronic, somewhat industrial beat with fragments of orchestral strings, topped off with a pair of sleepy vocals and distant hints of intensity and angst, the track is as bizarrely unpredictable as it is cinematically captivating.
