Following the announcement about his forthcoming debut album CCCLX,Â Canadian producerÂ Lunice dropped the first single f CCCLXÂ titledÂ Distrust and it's an absolute weapon!
To top it f, he's joined forces with Florida rapperÂ Denzel CurryÂ plus two members hisÂ C9Â crew:Â JK The ReaperÂ &Â NellÂ and not only has it given us a taste what to expect from Lunice's album but it tells us that hisÂ CCCLXÂ project is going to be E P I C.
Distrust isn't just your average Hip-Hop & Rap choon.Â DistrustÂ is an extremely well-crafted, experimental yet club-ready track that exhibits not onlyÂ Lunice's amazing production skills and ideas butÂ Denzel Curry,Â JK The ReaperÂ &Â Nell's rhythmic and lyrical verses based onÂ political spiritualism standing up to oppressive relationships and institutions (which they absolutely slay by the way).
Distrust is almost broken up into two parts. In the first half the raw drum samples and aÂ finger-walking, slightly Reggae influenced bass-line brings an upbeat and uplifting tone to back Denzel Curry's vocals.
The second half switches into an ominous breakdown with big tribal Toms echoing, swirling pads, obscure percussion samples and horns creating a more dark and cinematic atmosphere.Â Lunice concludesÂ Distrust with a short belting and lively drum loop withÂ rapid-firing laserÂ sounding synths, finishingÂ Distrust on a high-energy note.
Lunice's debut album drops onÂ September 8 which you can now pre-order
