Throughout the past year, I’ve spilled copious amounts of virtual ink covering French electronic music artist and producer LutchamaK. The French JOVM mainstay’s work is deeply influenced by — and generally draws rom — techno but while reflecting a lifelong devotion to and love of eclecticism, with his work often possessing elements of deep house and EDM among other electronic music genres, styles and subgenres.
During that same period, LutchamaK has been frenetically prolific, releasing new material through an increasing number of EPs, standalone singles and albums, including his latest EP, the six track effort Omen. Omen EP finds the French producer and JOVM mainstay crafting material that’s decidedly deep house. Centered around stuttering hi-hats and wobbling synth arpeggios, “Hope/Peace” is mesmerizing yet meant to be soothing — all while bringing Octo Octa’s Between Two Selves to mind.
