Melbourne’s Luboku, aka producer/songwriter Luis Kennett, is no average-sounding affair. He creates deep, shadowy production – a swirling haze of harmonies, marked with dark and brooding melodies – crafted into tracks that are at the same time uplifting and melancholic.
His debut release was a three-track EP At Dawn with NZ-based collaborator Hosaia in 2014. Luboku took charge of production, crafting a sweeping, delicate bed of music with Hosaia laying down vocals. Led by the single ‘Set to Go’ the At Dawn EP reached in excess of 50,000 streams in its first week, with Indie Shuffle noting it as containing“a strength and confidence well beyond most acts debuting their work together”. The release of the EP ignited something within 20-year-old Luboku, something he needed to pursue.
Luboku’s debut solo single ‘The Surface’ was released in late 2017 - the first from a new body of work. ‘The Surface’ is an exploration of dark electronics, a creation of sounds that were harsh, brittle and organic – steamrolled by a thick, clean and synthetic surface. As a song it could just as easily soundtrack an afternoon festival slot in Melbourne as an underground club at dawn in Kreuzberg. As a sound, it sets Luboku as Australia’s answer to James Blake, only tinged with the bold energy of Jon Hopkins.
What Luboku strives to create are moments which encapsulate the realities of modern life; through lyrics, pace and style.<br>
