Lugovskiy – Natural Decay [Lugovskiy, L003]
Ukrainian artist Lugovskiy unveils four breakbeat-fuelled, blissful daydreams titled ‘Natural Decay’.
‘Natural Decay’ surfaces in a vortex of melodies surrounded by bubbling, floating synths. Serving as the perfect demonstration of how Lugovskiy masterfully unearths deep emotion from his workstation, ‘Peak’ follows up with bouncing basslines and pitched-up vocals, squelchy acid lines emerging in the second half as jungle breakbeats keep pace. ‘The Mountains of Freedom’ features nostalgic dubbed-out synths and scattered vocal gates while subtle piano stabs anchor the composition. Closing the delicate listening experience of ‘Natural Decay’, ‘Blur’ slowly builds up to resonant dotted synths with rimshot-heavy drums drowning in vibrant, melodic soundscapes.
Kyiv-based artist Lugovskiy released club-ready music on labels such as Monstercat, Artist Intelligence Agency and Black Hole Recordings under previous moniker Marsbeing. Now, he makes emotional, breakbeat-heavy house music characterised by soft and organic sounds.
