Deep breaths... Counting to 10... A couple swings at the punching bag... Everyone has an anger management ritual.
Oddinhuman Music is proud to present Lumin's ritual; an engaging and insightful journal from the Miami-based rapper, producer and dj.
From the sample collage intro track "2208" establishing a lit fuse, to the fading tranquil chord conclusion of "Delta Blues", Hothead is an emotional excursion infused with golden era hip hop, jazz, and experimental synthesizer music. An incredibly musical ear coupled with the technical dexterity in the studio results in Lumin's unique blend of sounds: familiar yet progressive, ancestral yet other-worldly.
At its root, the desire of Hothead is to musically soothe.
Cooler heads prevail, and this is their meditation music.
