Lonely At The Top by Lukid
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Werkdiscs
On his fourth album, London's Lukid builds upon his style of sample-heavy beat music by undoing it. Where his previous records displayed an obvious debt to Dilla and Dabrye, Lonely is murkier and more amorphous, with less emphasis on rock-tumbled breaks and a deeper, more diffuse swirl of synths, voices and spiky machine rhythms. The grayscale timbres and omnipresent veil of hiss are reminiscent of Lukid's occasional collaborator Actress; so is the all-pervasive air of mystery. Stern but also sensual, it's perfect for darkened rooms and horizontal listening.
