Lu Lia is an underground artist whose roots originate from the Leeds house party scene. Focused on low swung percussive records with a dubby driven low end, he recently made his solo debut on Inwave with “Milanes EP” while other productions are currently in the making, so stay sharp!
“I loved every aspect of creating Tropica and couldn’t be more happier that it has been brought to you by Real Gang. This track lays out the vibe and sound I love, enjoy.”Lu Lia
The track delivers a groovy vibe designed with steady-paced drumming patterns, spacious breakdowns and twisted effects that smoothly blend with heavily modulated vocal cuts, creating an eerie atmosphere. This mood is elegantly complemented by the other compositions on this VA which explore various shades of minimal, microhouse, breaks and beyond. Listen to the snippets below:
5 Years of Real Gang Album Compilation will soon be available via Real Gang.
