It's a new year and what better way to celebrate it than with a new release and a new artist. As Liluzu, Lachlan McGeehan debuts on Kalahari Oyster Cult with What's Your Star Sign. Part of Australia's growing pool of musical talent, McGeehan combines a wide spread of influences and styles to arrive at his own unique sonic personality.
'I Think That...' opens the 12'. Classic breakbeat percussion is countered by chanting samples and silken chords as western grooves collide with the exoticism of the east. Tribal toms are cut by a rasping drum for the Bubble Mix of 'Arreca.' Delicate notes flutter next to squelchy basslines and aquatic flows in this dreamy and imaginative work. BPMs rise as 'Scale Libra' makes itself known on the flip. Shapeshifting melodies glow from the outset, bright notes dawn and shine in this track of new age optimism and old-school class. The I Love You Mix of 'Scale Libra' muscles up rhythm patterns, sourcing extra pound through thick kicks while adding height to the ascending lines of the Liluzu's version. A provocative dust-mask remake by Sentiments that captures all the enthusiasm and grace of the original as it nods to the verve of the 1990s dance scene.
