Lokua - Trails

Lokua – Trails

download zip file of the release

Lokua (Joshua Keckner) is a master of melody, texture and mood. Many are yet to experience this musician’s full scope of ability. Lokua’s earlier works consist largely of down-tempo instrumental hip-hop. Recent works branch out to include a large scope of electronic genres with a significant amount of dance material. Lokua’s sound is characterized by the richness and sincerity of its emotional content with even the danciest of tracks retaining a deep, cerebral sophistication.

A Chicago native, Lokua has fully embraced and embodied his environment. His sound is deeply rooted in the city’s music and social history and his countless live performances are imbued with contemporary yet authentic and raw Chicago culture. With a back catalog of tracks hovering in the thousands (including a number of conceptually-complete albums) and new ones being produced daily, we can look forward to a great variety of music releases in the near (as well as distant) future.

    Darn good nuggets of sound. Crunchy with a creamy nougat that lets you just eat it up and come back for more.

    Trails is a thick set of deep audio bombs featuring Lokua’s signature meticulous attention to detail & ambiance. Its yet another jewel in Lokua’s interdisciplinary electro kingpin crown. Highlights include the “Coupe De Ville Reprise” which clocks in at 1:05 & leaves the listener longing for more after offering only a quick glimpse of how hot the sauce can get.
    Other standouts include “A Thousand Pages”, “Burning Money”, “Grasshopper”, & “Trails”. These songs sound like something method man or one of your other favorite rappers in the mid 90′s wishes they would have had been fortunate enough to get their hands on before they all got bitten by the acting bug.
    The most interesting tracks are the ethereal head-nodder “Y.E.A.”, the uniquely catchy “Bub Sag”, & my personal favorite the uncompromising thumping heat of “Thanks Raining”. Each song on Trails holds its own & gives insight into the eloquence of Lokua’s style & range. Trails is one of the best netlabel albums of the year…definitely a must have for fans of good electronic music.

    [...] BÅ«tent šį darbÄ… lyginant su naujausiuoju, Lokua jį pavadino vasaros muzika. IÅ¡ties panaÅ¡u – neįpareigojantis ritmas, lengva melodija ir kartkartÄ—mis nusempluotas vokalas sudaro Å¡ilto skambesio įspÅ«dį, primenantį Japonijos instrumental hiphop scenos atlikÄ—jų ar prancÅ«zo Dj Cam kuriamÄ… muzikÄ….
