Brighton-based High Lucia steps forward with the Wash EP, six lush electronic tracks and his debut release for Lex.
High Lucia is 20-year-old producer Leo Marcus, who first started to make waves under the name Pále thanks to his 2013 Playing Truant collaborative EP with Joshua Idehen.
Now reborn and refocused as High Lucia, Marcus offers up Wash. Although largely instrumental, Joshua Idehen – Benin City vocalist and frequent collaborator with Hyperdub duo LV – returns for final track Opal/Forever where he’s joined by Shanaz Dorsett, who describes herself as, ‘Wu-Tang meets Minnie Ripperton’. The EP couples sweeping ambient instrumentation, vocal snippets and minimalist basslines resulting in a gorgeous showcase of High Lucia’s emerging talents.
