Luna City Express’ Lunation LP
Lapsus Music is to release Lunation, the brand new second studio album from German pair Luna City Express, due for release on November 18th 2016.
It features 17 tracks of high grade house, disco, downtempo and tech as well as plenty of guest appearances. It plays out like a party in the cosmos and is hugely absorbing from start to finish.
Kicking off with ‘Man on the Moon’ the album immediately takes you to another planet with some floating and slow motion hip hop atmospheres. From there things pick up with Victims of the Funk featuring Ominous & DoMi, which is a rubbery house cut with great little guitar riffs and steamy vocals. Cuts like Do It, D.I.Y.A. featuring Aaron Palmer and Travelling feat Philomena prove how many different styles Luna City Express are experts at: they are full of character and warm grooves and range from deep house and moody to broken beat and beautifully jazz.
Tracks like Monkey City and Feel featuring Desney Bailey’s emotive vocals prove the pair can go slow and still make a big impact, whilst Smoking Bull featuring Matthias Staller and is a bouncy, playful track full of feel good chords and brilliant piano melodies. Closing on the magically atmospheric title track, the LP leaves you hanging in deepest space.
