"Lucine" is the first taste of Douglas' forthcoming sophomore LP, which will follow his 2014 debut, Moon Observations, early next year. The latest single continues where his debut left off, it's a subtle piece of sun-kissed disco and organic, psychedelic pop. Now, Douglas has recruited Scottish producer Alex Smoke to remix "Lucine"; and in true Smoke fashion, the single is twisted and warped into a pensive piece of electronic bliss. The remix also allowed Smoke to step away from his usual fodder, as he explains:
"Was a nice one to work on as I could approach it more like a pop record with lots of melody and putting the vocals centre-stage. The percussion parts had a lot of space to them which meant I could use more of them than I usually would. As usual I layered a lot of parts after processing in various ways, added strings for a wee dose of sadness and a bassline to move the feet.”
