Boomkat Product Review:
Great to see the mighty Lusine on the brilliant Ghostly imprint – giving up 4 tracks of his finest blend of electronic aesthetic and unique production to perfection once again. Opening track “Push” is a neon blue dream of a track : that signature reverberated arrangement of melody and bassline re-tweaked here into something altogether more accomplished. The pace is fast, the feel is reflective – a conceit that has always marked Lusine out as one of the most consistantly rewarding and innovative electronic music producers out there today. “Haze” revolves around a steady beat in 4/4, playing to the floor with the shuffle while those remarkably deep resonances of bass and melody copy themselves into the mix with a sublime emphasis on reflection and emotive response. “Slapback” on the flip, meanwhile, constructs itself around tricky beats and micro processes in line with the Akufen school of thought, a stripped spasmodic percussion-heavy arrangement for the dancefloor, intricate and brilliantly produced in finest lusine style. “Excess” is deeper and more effervescent, the low-end sets the scene although the floating layers of synth and chorus, together with a beautifully placed arrangement of shimmering keys, lifts the track away from the fog and into the emotional catharsis melodies of this kind inspire so well. Excellent.
