Boomkat Product Review:
Lunice ain't the most prolific producer out there, but in his corner of the field, he's one of the finest. Following last year's solo debut 'Stacker Upper' EP, he returns to LuckyMe with the bolder, more substantial 'One Hunned' EP, backed with remixes from The Blessings and Girl Unit to work a slicker, leaner, and better rendered sound. Like Hud Mo and Rustie, he's well enamoured with the debonaire style of late '80s/early '90s R&B and New Jack Swing, but has his ears firmly on a 2011 sound. Those influences are most overt in the Hollywood chords of 'Glow' and 'Juice' or the soul blown chops of 'And She Said', but it's the centripetal drum diffusions and dance-enhancing edit slickness of each cut that lets you know what time it really is. Best of all is the wily sparsity of 'I See U', making excellent source material for the slo-mo funk crush of The Blessings remix, and Girl Unit's lazer-reachin' revision - a future club anthem if we've heard one. Highly recommended.
