Nestled somewhere between R&B, lo-fi hip-hop and ambient, their lush atmospheres and soulful rhythms are quickly becoming well known in the world of electronic music. It’s how they weave these elements together in their stage show that sets them apart, though. LUMAE’s presence as performers is now opening more doors than ever as they deliver their debut EP, Thoughts, on the fast-rising Swiss label, Quartz Records.
LUMAE is comprised of David Stadelmann and Alexander Graf, both of whom grew up outside of Luzern, Switzerland. David launched the project in 2012, deriving influence from Flume and other acts on the Future Classic roster. He and Alexander met during their music studies in Lucerne three years later, and by the end of 2017 they began working together.
