LUKE BONDS – FRAME

Since we were first introduced to Luke Bonds back when he went by Italilc(f), we’ve really heard the Barbadian producer hone his craft, as he cements his niche in the world of instrumental Hip Hop.  His latest drop, ‘Frame’, is a re-release on Australian label Future Sound.  The album begins with  the abstract, crackling Jazz cut ‘Cereal’, shortly followed…

LUKE BONDS – TRYNAWALK / III (DOUBT)

LUKE BONDS – YELLOW WATER

Having dropped ‘Ok‘ last week, Barbadian producer Luke Bonds drops the EP that the track calls home, ‘Yellow Water’.  Conceptually original as always, the EP “blend boom bap with psychedelic melodies and wobbly tones“.  Standout track ‘Blue Room’ features Nick Wavy, who contributes an assured verse.  Stream the whole of ‘Yellow Water’ below via BandCamp.
