As one of the most forward thinking producers blending hip-hop and dance music, Lunice has been changing the game for quite some time now. He is 1/2 of the famed production duo TNGHT alongside Hudson Mohawke, and has produced for the likes of Azealia Banks and Kanye West.
We recently had a chance to ask what's been inspiring him lately and if you're in the LA area on Halloween, grab tickets to see him with Danny Seth, Cavalier, Neo Fresco, and Eric Dingus at Camp Trill: Halloween Edition this Friday at the Echoplex.
"Here's a list of songs and artists that I've been really into recently. A lot of what you'll hear is what's influencing my perspective on using different sounds in my production which then translates to how I perform it live as well. I'm really looking forward to the Camp Trill event put on by Brownies & Lemonade. A lot of the people on the lineup I've met before and they're all amazing individuals. So this will definitely be a good one."
Inkke - 'SE'
"One of the homies at LuckyMe put me onto him. These type of sounds is what really catches my ear the moment I hear it."
Visionist - 'Victim'
"I first heard his work early last year and I've been hooked since. He makes very good use of space in his music."
Izzie B - 'iPhone Thotties'
"I came across this track playing an unofficially Chief Keef branded game called Flappy Sosa. This track would play at the end when you'd lose and I would purposely do so just to hear this track on loop for hours. I love the Chicago Bop sound."
CJ Flemings - 'That Girl'
"A young kid from my city already with wise ambitions. I've been working closely with him."
Cousin Stizz - 'Shout Out'
"He makes flow and simple subject matter come together so well."
Goldlink - 'Spectrum'
"He's one of my favorite vocalists I've heard in a while. He's got an amazing take on rhythm and when to come in and out of a song."
