I feel like I’ve finally found my music mix “flavor” the past days as I’ve been combining a whole lot of early 90s disco music with some of the electro/synth/technopop songs that are staples in my iPod.
The whole process of beat- and key-matching is actually very therapeutic. I get to be both creative and calculative at the same time which, I feel, is a perfect balance of my personality. It’s a great avenue to destress/detoxify from my day job and night class. Minsan kailangan rin magpahinga ni Curacha, noh. HAHA.
Anyway, here’s the tracklist:
- My Love: Route 94 feat. Jess Glynne
- Picture Picture: Sharam Jay & Sirius Hood
- Liquid Spirit (Claptone Remix): Gregory Porter
- Drumatic: Purple Disco Machine
- Show Me Love: Robin S
Living like a king, but I ain’t got no crown.
Baby this right here is a world of fun.
And every time you smile it makes it hard to breathe.
I’ve been waiting for this release since I first heard one of his singles “Fever” (which, btw, I reviewed here last year). And I must say, this 15-minute long EP is worth putting on loop all day. Lenno has this knack of using classic nu-wave/discotheque beats, bass lines, and synths you’d normally hear from classic 80s and 90s tracks. For someone who’s only in his early 20s, he’s making songs that our parents can tolerate listening to.
All tracks are standouts, it’s so hard to choose just one. The whole vibe of his album is everything I’m looking for in an electropop/synthpop song. You’d find yourself including his songs in your springtime/summertime beachparty playlists.
For more of Lenno, check out his Soundcloud, like his Facebook page, and follow him on Songkick to get updates on where he’ll be playing live next.
