A collection of self-produced songs, Getting in Touch sees LLUCID’s best work to date both sonically and lyrically. Uniquely himself throughout, he finds a way in this 6-track project to display another side to this exciting and genre-bending artist. While hip-hop-leaning singles "Fooled" and "Habits" showcase his lyrical prowess in his signature higher-pitched rap delivery, "Levitate" and "Nostalgia" display LLUCID’s ability to craft infectious vocal hooks over spacey indie-RnB backdrops. 

This project leaves you only to question two things. Firstly, “Why haven't I heard of him before? and secondly “Is there anything he can’t do?" Artistically limitless, this EP sets the record straight. We are witnessing an all-round artist. One that produces intricately detailed instrumentals that tow the line between old school hip-hop samples and modern sound design while delivering vocal performances in either his signature rap vocal tone (reminiscent of Kendrick Lamar) or more pop-influenced singing style. And don’t forget the visuals. 

LLUCID sees the relationship between music and accompanying visuals as an important opportunity. The music video for "Feel Good," the stand-out single on the EP, sees him confidently being himself dressed in vibrant colors across various settings around his hometown in Berlin.
