New Audio: JOVM Mainstay LutchamaK returns with a Sleek, Deep House Banger

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

He followed that up with the five-song TERMusik, which featured the slickly produced Tour de France and Computerworld-era Kraftwerk-like deep house banger “100 Miles.

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.

New Audio: JOVM Mainstay LutchamaK Remixes His Own “Bitrate Scale”

Over the past couple of years, I’ve spilled quite a bit of virtual ink covering French JOVM mainstay LutchamaK.  Now, if you’ve been frequenting this site over the past year or so, you’d recall that LutchamaK started off the year with a remix effort that 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 and euphoria-inducing hooks

The JOVM mainstay contributes his own remix of “Bitrate Scale.” The LutchamaK remix is a subtle one that clocks in a little over a minute shorter than the original while retaining thumping kick but while pairing it with oscillating synths paired with vocodered vocals. Much like the original, it still nods at Kraftwerk but it feels murkier and brooding.

New Audio: JOVM Mainstay LutchamaK Shares Darbinyan’s Remix of “Bitrate Scale”

Last year, may have been among the most prolific and productive of LutchamaK‘s career to date. The French JOVM mainstay released an insane array of full-length albums and EPs that saw him experimenting with different sub-genres and styles within electronic music.

In that series of releases, you might remember Threshold, which  featured “Irie Vibrations,” a track that seemed to mesh elements of Lee “Scratch” Perry-like dub with club friendly trance and house and “Bitrate Scale,” a brooding yet hypnotic club banger that brought Tour de France era Kraftwerk to mind. 

LutchamaK starts off 2022 with a remix effort that features remixes of Threshold album single “Bitrate Scale” by three artists, who liked his work and wanted to create their own takes. So far I’ve written about two of these remakes on Bitrate Scale_rmx:  

  • DNMK‘s deep house-leaning take on “Bitrate Scale” that features a brooding, murkier air than the original
  • Haalleycks 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 contributes an uptempo, deep house take on “Bitrate Scale” centered around oscillating synths, skittering, tweeter and woofer rattling beats, glistening synth arpeggios, robotic vocodered vocals and euphoria-inducing hooks. Much like Haallecks’ remix, the Darbinyan remix feels like a complete rework for the original.

New Audio: JOVM Mainstay LutchamaK Shares Haalleycks Remix of “Bitrate Scale”

Last year, may have been among the most prolific and productive of LutchamaK‘s career to date. The French JOVM mainstay started the year with Pi, a full-length album written and recorded in at three-month inspired burst that resulted in some of the darkest and heaviest material, he has written and released to date. 

Then he released the Quest EP, an effort, which featured experimental yet very melodic material. A few months after that, he released Rapscallion, which featured the Radioactivity-era Kraftwerk meets 90s techno-like “James Blitz 007.” 

Then there was Seven Hybrids, which featured the hypnotic club banger “Moonbright,” and the Larry Levan house music-like “Davai.” He also released Threshold, which featured “Irie Vibrations,” a track that seemed to mesh elements of Lee “Scratch” Perry-like dub with club friendly trance and house and “Bitrate Scale,” a brooding yet hypnotic club banger that brought Tour de France era Kraftwerk to mind. 

The French JOVM mainstay closed out a busy 2021 with the Utopia EP, which featured the hypnotic and contemplative “You See” and the euphoric, Octo Octa-like “s.T. bahn.” 

LutchamaK starts off 2022 with a remix effort that features remixes of Threshold album single “Bitrate Scale” by three artists, who liked his work and wanted to create their own takes. Earlier this month, you might recall that I wrote about DNMK‘s deep house-leaning take on “Bitrate Scale” that features a brooding, murkier air than the original. Haalleycks contributes a trippy cosmic take on “Bitrate Scale” centered around thumping kick and glistening and oscillating synths that feels more like a complete rework of the original.

New Audio: JOVM Mainstay LutchamaK Returns with a Slickly Produced, Trance-Inducing Banger

There are few artists I’ve written about as much over the past 20+ months than the frenetically prolific French electronic music producer and JOVM mainstay LutchamaK. During that period, LutchamaK has managed to release an increasingly eclectic array of material — through EPs, albums and standalone singles — that have seen him bouncing around effortlessly between a number of different electronic music styles, genres and sub-genres. 

2021 may be among the most prolific and productive of the JOVM mainstay’s career. He started the year with Pi, a full-length album written and recorded in at three-month inspired burst that resulted in some of the darkest and heaviest material, he has written and released to date. Then he released the Quest EP, an effort, which featured experimental yet very melodic material. A few months after that, he released Rapscallion, which featured the Radioactivity-era Kraftwerk meets 90s techno-like “James Blitz 007.” Then there was Seven Hybrids, which featured the hypnotic club banger “Moonbright,” and the  Larry Levan house music-like “Davai.” 

After a mere month hiatus, the prolific, French JOVM mainstay released his latest full-length album ThresholdThreshold, as LutchamaK explains ” . . . an invitation to a post-techno trip with strong electro dub accents.” Last week, I wrote about “Irie Vibrations,” a track featuring tweeter and woofer rattling beats, shimmering, reverb-drenched synths and spacey vocal samples to create a song that meshes elements of Lee “Scratch” Perry-like dub with club friendly trance and house.

Threshold‘s latest single “Bitrate Scale” is a brooding yet hypnotic club banger centered around glistening synths, skittering, tweeter and woofer rattling beats, a vocal sample featuring Antonin Artaud and a relentless motorik-like groove, reminiscent of Tour de France era Kraftwerk. Much like its predecessor, “Bitrate Scale” continues a run of slickly produced yet crafted bangers.

During that period, LutchamaK has managed to release an increasingly eclectic array of material — through EPs, albums and standalone singles — that have seen him bouncing around effortlessly between a number of different electronic music styles, genres and sub-genres.

After a mere month hiatus, the prolific, French JOVM mainstay released his latest full-length album Threshold. Threshold, as LutchamaK explains ” . . . an invitation to a post-techno trip with strong electro dub accents.” Album single “Irie Vibrations” may be the best example of what to expect of the album: Tweeter and woofer rattling beats are paired with shimmering, reverb-drenched synths and spacey vocal samples. The end result is a track that meshes elements of Lee “Scratch” Perry-like dub with club friendly trance and house.
