Stream & Download Lunice's 11-Track Debut Album 'CCCLX'

Lunice CCCLX Album

Between his numerous high-quality EP's over the years and his legendary work as TNGHT with Hudson Mohawke, Lunice has made quite the name for himself. 10 years after coming into the scene, the Montreal beatmaker is finally releasing his debut album, CCCLX (pronounced 360). 

The new 11-track album features vocals from some lesser-known artists like CJ Flemings and Denzel Curry, but Lunice's beats remain the focus. His heavily hip-hop influenced trap music is as clean as ever, the intricate beats begging to be heard through headphones. His unique style of syncopated beats with high synth notes in rapid succession remain immediately recognizable, but it's clear how much he has progressed as a producer. The concise 40-minute album never outstays its welcome and plays excellently from start to finish as a whole product.

Back in June, Lunice announced that he is working on HudMo on new TNGHT material, and we'll have this solo album on repeat until we hear what else the two have in store for us. Enjoy!

Lunice Announces Debut Album ‘CCCLX’ And Shares New Track "Distrust" Ft. Denzel Curry, JK the Reaper & Nell

Lunice Denzel Curry

Yesterday (June 26), Lunice shared a cryptic video which we hoped was teasing a potential new TNGHT project. Today, Lunice announced (in an interview with NPR) that CCCLX (360) is in fact not a hint at new TNGHT, but is actually the title of his upcoming debut album, dropping September 8. With the announcement the Montreal-based producer has also shared a brand new track "Distrust" off of the upcoming project - a collaboration with Denzel Curry and C9 rappers: JK The Reaper & Nell.

While his previously released single “Mazerati” will also be included on the album, Lunice takes things in a bit of a different direction on this new one. The track starts off with an soft horn melody and a quick verse from Nell before JK comes in on top of some eerie vocal chops, completely switching up the vibe. As the song progresses, JK, Nell and Denzel lay down some back-to-back fast paced verses before the beat does a full backflip into an extended outro section filled with wonky electronic blips, skittering percussion and a booming kick drum. 

The production on this latest offering perfectly exemplifies the unexpected and hard-hitting sound Lunice is all about. Check out the full tracklist for his upcoming debut album here and listen to “Distrust” below. Enjoy!

Lunice Drops Remix Of Dillon Francis' "Say Less" Ft. G-Eazy & Cryptic Video Teasing Potential New TNGHT Project

Lunice TNGHT

It seems like Lunice is constantly teasing us with new music. He's just dropped new remix of Dillon Francis’ “Say Less" and made some cryptic announcements. The Montreal-based producer stopped in at Red Bull Music Academy a few days ago to reveal that he’s currently working on new TNGHT music with Hudson Mohawke. Today, only increasing the hype, he’s shared a cryptic video simply titled “A special announcement…”.

While the video comes with little context, it seems that there are only two possibilities of what it may mean: either Lunice is releasing new music himself or TNGHT has something on the way. Throughout the Steve Jobs keynote-inspired video, Lunice talks about the five senses, the meaning of “passion” and a “ multi-sensory experience” he calls 360 (also referred to in roman numerals - CCCLX). We’ve seen his 360 logo before on the artwork for his most recent single, “Mazerati” and following the video, new artwork for 360 has popped up with a dead-end link on Lucky Me’s website. A TNGHT logo even pops up when he says the word tonight....

Infomercial-style subtitles continuously show up at the bottom of the screen, one of which, 1-808-CCCLX-LM045LP, caught our eye at the 50-second mark. Obviously the number 808 is a reference to the Roland drum machine/frequently used bass drum and CCCLX is another reference to 360, but LM045LP eludes us. It seems to be the catalog number for Sevendeaths’ ‎most recent release, Remote Sympathy on Lucky Me, but could possibly hold another meaning.
