New Erik Luebs: Cycle 1 | January

Tokyo-based electronic producer Erik Luebs kicked in the new year with a dizzying two-song set built for the dancefloor. Cycle 1 | January finds Luebs laying down something quicker paced than other recent tracks from him, which in 2017 tended to be a bit more shadowy and cerebral. Yet something like “Pressed” just zips ahead, featuring a galloping beat and flourishes that keep everything chugging along. Yet the pair of tracks here still boast a woozy edge to them, and while they are certainly more active, Luebs adds some mystery via the edges being a bit more liquid. Get it here, or listen below.
