Luboku - Closer

Luboku - Closer
Melbourne based producer/songwriter Luboku (Luis Kennett), has, over the past year quickly risen to become one of the most unique up-and-coming talents Australia possesses. Having introduced himself with a run of stand-out singles, he today shares his debut solo EP The Surface (out via Sydney-based label etcetc), a body of work that showcases his versatile approach to songwriting, blending pop, electronic and RnB soundscapes along the way. To celebrate the release, he'll also be heading out for his first Australian tour early next year.

Luboku’s debut solo single ‘The Surface’ was released in late 2017 - the first single from a new body of work. ‘The Surface’ is an exploration of dark electronics, a creation of sounds that were harsh, brittle and organic – steamrolled by a thick, clean and synthetic surface. As a song it could just as easily soundtrack an afternoon festival slot in Melbourne as an underground club at dawn in Kreuzberg. As a sound, it sets Luboku as Australia’s answer to James Blake, only tinged with the bold energy of Jon Hopkins. Further singles from The Surface (EP) have seen support from around the world - with global media outlets giving it their tick of approval.

About this track...

When Luboku started working on this track it was it was a pretty heavy beat, but while working in some piano the melody from Ne-Yo’s classic RnB track 'Closer' came to mind; the harmony just seemed to click in a really interesting way. It’s now turned out to be one of Luboku's silent favourites on the EP.
