Luca Lozano – Life in Black and White05/10/13
Luca Lozano is an illustrious musical figure capable of shining light into the night and casting shadows on bright spaces. Also a renowned graphic and graffiti artist, his debut solo album takes a broader, multifaceted approach; moving from slow to fast; textured to simple; from dark to light; ‘My Life In Black & White’ covers new terrain for the young producer that maps his evolution and declassification. Instrumentally adept, Lozano contributes piano, drums and guitar to his debut and effortlessly juxtaposes an array of musical approaches throughout. Commencing with a samplebased, cut and scratch delivery akin to DJ Shadow, ‘Life In…’ swirls with the natural rhythms of jazz (perhaps practised through his frequent collaborations with Portico Quartet), the slender grooves of a soul train and the late night flow of the dancefloor, such as in earlier released singles ‘Sail On’, featuring the vocals of Crosstown Rebels star Amirali and ‘Need Nothing’, resulting in an audio enigma that continually unravels.
