High Lucia "Afar"
High Lucia is the new moniker of Leo Marcus, a 20-year-old producer who had previously turned in some impressive work under the name Pa?le. Next week, Marcus will issue the debut effort under his new handle, the Wash EP, via the Lex label. Set to appear on the record is "Afar" a dense, moody production which wraps water-logged melodies, dark chords, and layers of airy textures around a sparse, bass-heavy beat. Despite the expanse of sonic material Marcus uses here, the track is far from murky, as each element seems to have found its own specific corner in the sonic landscape, allowing for the tune's booming kicks and sharp claps to cut through the fog. High Lucia's six-track Wash EP sees its official release on August 25.
