LUZCID has been putting in some serious work recently, and we’ve got the first look at the fruits of his labor. The producer, who has been known for his hard-hitting bass, is teaming up with the WAKAAN’s downtempo sub-label SSKWAN to drop a chill melodic single. The tune is called “Lightstream” and we’re eager to share this exclusive premiere of it this morning..
The song starts out with an uplifting ambiance right off the bat, as light and airy chords carry the notes along. As the energy gently rises and falls, it gives the sense of an ocean’s tides ebbing and flowing. The production emboldens at the right time with deep and subtle bass, creating a powerful yet serene sound. The composition of “Lightstream” is unique with its progression, with LUZCID taking a storytelling approach:
Lightstream was very much influenced by my interest in stories. Especially those found in video games. In this song I wanted to portray the development and growth of the protagonist. It starts out playful and hopefully. Very innocent feeling. Then as the song progresses a sense of mission or grand purpose is instilled in our protagonist. This feeling of great purpose is the main theme of the song in my mind. It should make you feel powerful in a peaceful way.
In an Instagram takeover of SSKWAN’s page, he announced that he has two downtempo EPs and a heavy EP already completed and ready to release, so you can count on this just being the beginning of many fire tracks coming soon.
Take a listen below. Enjoy!
