As Luciano needs little introduction we will just say this, you can guarantee he always comes through with a signature tune once a year.
And so 2015 throws up “7 Directions” featuring JAW on the vocal, a mesmerizing and low-slung track that’s already getting pole position in Luciano’s sets, ending his momentous off-Sonar show at El Poble Espanyol with it, as well as becoming a staple at his weekly Vagabundos residency at Space in Ibiza this season.
“7 Directions” is perhaps one of Luciano’s more understated productions; it’s a sprawling and sultry journey, with deft melodic touches and intricate production techniques, taking care not to become cluttered, rather using the space is enunciate the sheer hypnotism stored within and for JAWs vocals to glide over the listener without fanfare or dramatic clichés.
Today, we are very proud to exlusvely premiere the original mix of EP’s eponymous title track. On this mix, brooding pads and spikey synths linger over a spacious drum pattern, live drum fills and claps bouncing off the bass pulses, as wandering keys usher in the unmistakable tones of JAW AKA Jonathan Illel, the musician and vocalist extraordinaire who ply’s his trade with the French electronic group DOP and as a guest on recordings from artists like Mirko Loko and Guillaume & The Coutu Dumounts amongst many others.
“7direction(s)” is available 7 December on Cadenza Records
