George Bashington Productions are to thank for putting this show together (FB event), with Live For The Funk sponsoring. Lunice brings fresh energy and effortless style to the hip hop world. Now 23, he’s done remixes for prominent labels such as Mad Decent, XL Recordings and Young Turks. A part of the LuckyMe collective (Machinedrum, Jacques Greene, Rustie), he released the One Hundred EP and the Stacker Upper EP in 2011. I’ve been especially taken by “Runnin”; the smooth beat he did for Azealia Banks, as well as TNGHT; his collaboration with Hudson Mohawke. Tomorrow marks Lunice’s first Seattle appearance. All hip-hop enthusiasts, and those drawn to future dance sounds should give him a warm welcome and come to Neumos.

 

 

Kastle from San Francisco joins Lunice. Be sure to catch the whole lineup, with sets from RL Grime and my buddy Cedaa happening early on.

All I can say about this release is..DAMN. Enjoy a more in-depth analysis of the TNGHT EP via Live For The Funk, and head over to Pitchfork for an interview with Hudson Mohawke and Lunice; the duo behind these glorious hip-hop experiments. I’ve included TNGHT’s recent mix for BBC Radio 1Xtra’s “Diplo and Friends”. Warning, this set is not for the timid. It’s drugged up hood shit with more reverse bleep outs than you can shake a stick at.
