Over the past couple of years, I’ve managed to spill quite a bit of virtual ink covering the prolific French electronic music producer and JOVM mainstay LutchamaK.
Continuing upon his long-held reputation for being prolific, LutchamaK began the year with the Bitrate Scale_rmx EP, which featured remixes of Threshold album single “Bitrate Scale” by three artists, who liked his work and wanted to create their own takes.
- DNMK‘s deep house-leaning take on “Bitrate Scale” that features a brooding, murkier air than the original
- Haalleyck‘s trippy and cosmic take on “Bitrate Scale” centered around thumping kick and glistening and oscillating synths that feels more like a complete rework of the original
- Darbinyan‘s uptempo, deep house take on “Bitrate Scale” centered around oscillating synths, skittering, tweeter and woofer rattling beats, glistening synth arpeggios, robotic vocodered vocals D euphoria-inducing hooks
- LutchamaK also contributed his own murky and brooding remix of “Bitrale Scale” that retained the thumping kick of the original but while pairing it with oscillation synths and vocodored vocals
Since the release of those two EPs, LutchamaK has released the 12-song album way up the path, which features some of the most eclectic material of his growing catalog to date — with the album’s song featuring elements of electro pop, techno, synth wave, breakbeats and more.
way up the path‘s latest single “Flashing Lights” is a yet another, swaggering deep house banger featuring glistening synth arpeggios, skittering beats and twitter and woofer rattling thump within an hook-driven yet expansive song structure. Sonically, “Flashing Lights” sees the JOVM subtly refining and honing his sound and approach with a lean efficiency.
