Truancy Volume 198: Lukid

Melodically serene, structurally simple and yet powerfully evocative, the music of Lukid sits on its own plane of electronic exploration.

Truancy Volume 193: Joe

Joe well and truly had the wind in his sails just a few years back, quietly building up an impressive discography on the likes of Hemlock Recordings and Hessle Audio – pretty much UK royalty.
