Lucky Paul's Far East Mixtape
Although Lucky Paul (a New Zealander currently residing in Berlin) is a new name for most, he’s been carefully honing his craft all over the world for years. He spent one year in Brazil studying it’s traditional percussion, and followed it up with a trip to India where he spent time living with and learning from Indian music legend Pandit Vikash Maharaj and his musical family. Lucky Paul’s musical vision quest then led him to Korea where he spent 7 months studying with Bae il Dong - a Pansori singer who learned his art by living near a waterfall for 5 years, singing into the water for fifteen hours a day.
Now Lucky Paul is preparing to release his debut release with our lovely somethinksounds label. The Slow Ground EP sits somewhere comfortably between the bassy, futuristic hip hop of Flying Lotus and Tokimosta, the progressive sounds of Animal Collective and Panda Bear and the melancholy productions of Mount Kimbie, James Blake and The xx, “Slow Ground” is sure to attract fans from across the mutual spectrum
Peep the mixtape - you heard it hear first.
