REVIEW: Lunice’s “CCCLX”

CCCLX is as a solid starting point for this beatsmith’s next chapter.

After taking the trap world by storm just over half a decade ago through his work alongside Hudson Mohawke as TNGHT, Montreal’s own Lunice at long last blesses the world with a solo record. The project is a trip down memory lane for anyone fond of the peak era in SoundCloud discovery, a dramatic blend of electronic- and hip hop-infused tracks that are sure to satisfy ragas as eloquently as study sessions. It’s far from perfect, with features particularly feeling out of place, but CCCLX serves as a solid starting point for the beatsmith’s next chapter.
