Luz1e – Sonic Impact EP [MTRON029]
Luz1e debuts on Mechatronica with a breakout blend of delicate electro and dystopian machinefunk, carefully reinforced by DALO’s haunting vocals and drenched in futuristic atmosphere.
Luz1e – Radical Optimism [VOI023]
LUZ1E makes her debut on Voitax, with a four track EP, “Radical Optimis”. The opener “Transition” lays down LUZ1E’s law, featuring headstrong drum work, matched with equally menacing bass arpeggios. If the theme of apocalypticism wasn’t obvious enough from the opening track’s looming pads, it will become apparent with “Electronic Warfare”. Served up on electro’s trustworthy chassis, we watch the distorted arpeggios unfold as the tension of the pads guide us to an dystopian finale. On the flip, the title track “Radical Optimism” uses shrill pad pressure to break the track’s dreamy opening sequence – as the modulating bass provides plenty of frequencies for the dance floor. The closing track, “Emotional Intelligence” provides a candid looking glass into the producer’s musical influences. LUZ1E’s knack for emotive pads furnish the track’s uplifting structure with class, as breaks and bass deliver us to a tender climax.
VA – Aid EP II [MTRONAID2]
“Should you still have any additional good fortune left, we have put together a second Aid EP, to help support the artists in our community and on our label, currently under financial pressure due to the massive amount of DJ gig and live set cancellations within our scene – and to keep the lights on in our collective, which is heavily dependent on income from event production. All sales will be split 50/50 between the artists and ourselves, after production costs have been recouped.”
