Essentials: “Burnt” – Lunice

Four formerly shelved Lunice tracks comprise LuckyMe’s newest release, 180, a compilation of the producer’s “lost tapes from 2011-2012”. Preceding his collaborative TNGHT project with Hudson Mohawke, Lunice’s EP is eerily predictive of what was to follow in the next four years in terms of trap music. “Burnt” is indicative of Lunice’s psychic ability; its darkly bravado bass and imposing blasts of synths play off the skeletal rhythmic structure of the track, an unexpected blueprint for the style that would be in vogue years later. As he gears up to go on the road with Madonna for her European leg of the Rebel Heart tour, one can only wonder what standard-setting sounds Lunice is conjuring up next.

Grab Lunice’s 180 EP on Bleep, and listen to more of his music on Soundcloud.
