KLABU - MR. LU

KLABU - MR. LU

Mr. LU is not an unfamiliar name to be featured here, but this time around, he’s back with an introvert-tailored release titled, “KLABU” which opens up with very ambient, majestic synths that combine with terse, tapping percussion and thunderous 808s for a foundation that does well to create a euphoric space for him to lay down laid-back rhymes that teeter on the edge between rapping and singing with a trance-like approach. 🎙✨ As he goes in, his words drone on and even though he might not put too much enthusiasm or energy into his delivery, his disposition is as captivating and addictive as ever. 🎶 His cadence is also not over the top or too intricate, but the way he just floats over the instrumental, kept me captivated the entire time, which allowed his story to be shared in its entirety, and it’s a story that is just as fascinating to listen to as his individualistic sound. 📝 It’s one of those offerings that through the beautiful inclusion of a combination of instruments, he manages to provide a rangy, vintage feel that is equally enjoyable from both an instrumental and vocal standpoint, and I can only imagine how much fun it’d be to see him perform the track live. 💯 But for now the track’s hazy and low-lit visualiser does well to satisfy, adding even more of a trippy, relaxed feel that the mystical track already accomplishes. 📹
