This week, Spinnup proudly introduces 21-year-old music producer Luciid following the release of his sparkling debut EP ‘IDENTITY’.
The Cornwall based electronic artist has been posting music for just over a year now, harnessing and maturing his production skills which are developed and showcased in this latest project.
The five track EP ‘IDENTITY’, featured on GAWP radio, stands out as a bold electronic exploration of synth and funk pop, carried by four collaborations packed with stunning vocalists and artists including Lily Lyons, Florence Bird, Meg Wassell and AÏDA. As the EP progresses from the Tove Lo sounding ‘NEW’ to the house inspired ‘STILL with U’, Luciid certainly lives up to his promise of ‘serving tech beatz & funky jams’.
Luciid also isn’t shy of also serving a look or two, exploring not only his sound, but his gender expression by using make up and drag personas to experiment with his own ‘IDENTITY’, something that can be seen in his attention-grabbing EP art work. Citing his main influence as M.I.A, other references include Yaeji, Kaytranada, Massive Attack, Four Tet, FKA Twigs, Banks, Goldlink and Groove Armada which can no doubt be heard in this project filled with techy dance bangers.
We cannot wait to hear more from Luciid! Head over to our Spinnup Playlist now to listen to our favourite track from the EP ‘NEW’.
