NAIROBI LOST TAPES VOL 1 (EP) - MR. LU

NAIROBI LOST TAPES VOL 1 (EP) - MR. LU

Exploring hypnotic and decadent instrumentation, Mr. LU is well known to have carved out a lane all by himself, his sound seemingly untouched in its characteristic authenticity. 💎 Even before hitting play on his newest project, the title, cover art & overall aura of it had me eager to check it out once he sent it over. 🍜 And while I was confident it would have the kind of groovy & unique type of vibes he is well known for, it ended up coming with so much more than i anticipated. 👏🏾✨ This latest compilation tape is basically like a smorgasbord of different unique beats that were pieced & arranged together perfectly to make for a great listen through. 🎧 It features a wide variety of local sounds from what’s an already cultural hotbed, bringing out an incomparably organic and wholesome feeling to what makes up Kenyan music and in the tracks provided you can just hear the chemistry that they all had together, well led and orchestrated by the producer himself. 🌟 From the synth runs, which burst up with color, to the groove of the basslines, there’s so much to dissect, but what’s easily audible is how each element adds to the sincerity in his storytelling, with every track seamlessly blending obscure samples and melodies, all guided by his own creativity and innovation. 🧠 It’s a wicked selection of different sounds that he somehow manages to produce into a great body of work from front to back, with moments of hazy, disorienting brilliance giving us some invigorating & class sounding records. 🎲 And while i’ve only listened to it a few times over today, i’m still thoroughly enjoying it on my fifth listen so far. 💯 So don’t waste any more time and do yourself a favor by checking it out. Moreover, make sure to peep he and Selo’s newest visuals for one of the tracks on the tape, Corporate! Looking forward to more in Volume 2! ✌🏾
