Lacuna Keeps It Simple & Hard-Hitting On New EP 'Transmute'
17 November 2021
In the two years since his last long-form solo release, Chandigarh-born bass producer Mihir Raina aka Lacuna has focused on sound design which he uses to inform his latest offering 'Transmute', released via 4NC¥.
The 4-track EP keeps things simple and hard-hitting, letting the interplay of hip-hop style drums and toothy basslines be the centre of attention – counting on the impact of their timbres and melodic movements to hold the attention while peripheral intermittent elements colour the mind of the listener. While the grit lends a dark quality reminiscent of the stylistic direction he took with his 2019 EP 'Skeng', 'Transmute' nurtures Lacuna's experience of increasingly connecting with the world of hip-hop to deliver uncomplicated structures that are focused on oomph and impact.
