Laidback Luke has returned to his techno roots for another offering under his new alias. The second EP from his Dark Chanell project, ‘New York Five-O’ is out now. Following on from the ‘No.1’ EP – Luke’s latest collection aims to showcase his techno talent.
First single ‘Hutch’ is a brooding five-minute production, with layered drums and percussive elements that build momentum and drive the track forward. The second and final track ‘Foxy Town’ embodies its name, as Luke brings back the funkier side of the genre for an electro infused, upbeat soundtrack.
With the unveiling of his Dark Chanell alias earlier this year, his techno past was apparently a revelation to some, and a welcome return for others. With support from industry peers, the sophomore Dark Chanell EP sees Luke set his intentions for the project, playing with soundscapes from across the techno spectrum to offer a taste of the diverse range of tracks that is still to come from the Dutch artist.
