Lukid to play Sonar 2009

Lukid plus Barca sunshine. A match made in heaven.

What Sonar say....

Back in 2007, he released an LP and an EP on Werk Discs, full of emotive abstract electronic beats, as well as contributing to the 'We Are...' monthly podcasts, sniffing out dusty nuggets like a well-trained platter-hound. Stussy snapped up another of his tracks for a compilation, which also featured Flying Lotus and Gaslamp Killer, while the start of this year saw his second LP 'Foma' for Werk Discs receive critical acclaim from the likes of Resident Advisor, Boomkat, and Fact magazine, for his bass-heavy, tripped out grooves.

Lone signs to Werk

Joy Reel / Sunset Teens



Fresh from last summers brilliant wake up album “Lemurian” – Lone, Werks latest whizz proudly presents “Joy Reel / Sunset Teens”, a subliminal assault of defocused synths, with a hypnotic glow guaranteed to put even the hardest club head into a stereo induced trance.

Only this time however the Greenhills Zone b-boy breaks out the 808, swivels his cap, and steps out into the summer haze, with a boombox full of 80’s R&B inspired computer talk.

Without doubt a more thuggish update on the Lone sound, this 12” gives a taste of the eagerly anticipated debut album on Werk Discs slated for a Summer 2009 release.
