Lukas Frei, better known as ½ of https://soundcloud.com/dubapes, has been producing music for over 4 years now. With releases on Bad Taste, Bacon Dubs & Mindstep music, this guy is not a newcomer in the music business.
He started working on a new side project last year called ‘Black Lotus Experiment’. Together with a fellow friend, Moritz Scharf, they pursue electronic & trip hop influences but when it comes to describing the genre, it’s rather a grey zone so we’ll let the music do the talking.
Some words from Lukas about BLE:
“We’ve met in Salzburg and I showed Moritz Scharf new stuff that I was doing apart from 140 and more as a solo project rather than Dubapes. He then showed me his solo thing called ‘Aramboa’ & we really enjoyed each other’s tracks. Since he is a guitarist I asked him if he could play something on top of one of my tracks, long story short. We enjoyed working together so much that we made up to 13 tracks (!) in 2 month and we just keep on going since then.”
Pavlos is another sublime production from this Austrian duo with more jazzy, electronic influences that really gives me the chills every time it gets a rinse.
If you want to hear more of this, don’t forget to catch them every other Sunday 6-8 pm GMT on yours truly.
