Introducing the ‘Muse’ EP by Lurch, proudly presented by Intrigue Music. This release marks a triumphant return to Intrigue after a two-year hiatus dedicated to honing his craft. The ‘Muse’ EP symbolizes a creative renaissance following the lockdown era, where Lurch has rediscovered his musical identity as a passionate enthusiast. Drawing inspiration from a diverse spectrum of sources, including CAN, Public Service Broadcasting, Radiohead, and revered figures in the Drum & Bass scene such as Hidden Agenda, Bill Riley, and 175 Crew, Lurch skillfully weaves these influences into a unique sonic tapestry.
The ‘Muse’ EP serves as a testament to Lurch’s musical journey and evolution, guided by both iconic influences of the past and contemporary inspirations. His deep appreciation for artists like Chris Inperspective, Ill Truth, and MC Bluejay, who share his eclectic tastes, is vividly expressed through the EP’s dynamic and vibrant compositions.
What’s truly remarkable is Lurch’s creative toolkit, which includes an Argos keyboard, a trusty microphone, Reason 9 running on an average laptop, Rokit 5 monitors, and an array of guitars. Even more intriguing is the fact that he has steadfastly adhered to this set of tools for an entire decade, highlighting that genuine artistry resides in the mind, not just the equipment. This unaltered approach, refined over a decade, has yielded a distinctive sound that is unmistakably his own.
Within the ‘Muse’ EP, Lurch delivers a musical journey that fuses his artistic growth, personal rediscovery, and diverse influences. This release stands as a testament to the enduring power of dedication, the evolution of creativity, and an unquenchable thirst for musical fulfilment.
