There are few artists I’ve witten about as much over the past 18-20 months than the frenetically prolific French electronic music producer, artist and JOVM mainstay LutchamaK. And during that same period, LutchamaK has released an increasingly eclectic array of material — through EPs, albums and standalone singles — that see him bouncing around endlessly between different electronic music styles, genres and sub-genres.
2021 may the the most productive and prolific year to date for the JOVM mainstay: he started this year with Pi, a full-length album written and recorded in a three month burst that may be among the darkest and heaviest he has released. He quickly followed that up with Quest EP, an effort that featured experimental but melodic material.
The JOVM mainstay continues on an insanely prolific period with yet another four-song EP, Rapscallion. Clocking in at a radio friendly 3:36, the EP’s first single “James Blitz 007” is a slickly produced synthesis of Radioactivity-era Kraftwerk, 90s house and techno and drum ‘n’ bass featuring tweeter and woofer rattling beats, chopped up vocal samples and euphoric hook that invites the listener to get up and dance.
