Hey, this is your round-up for #LT1KF, Unknown But Essentials! or UBS, and this time I have for you these six acts that you should check out right away!
Lewca’s “Boombap for Boomers” Released on September 15th
Lewca’s new opus “Boombap for Boomers”, is the second album to come from the basement sessions with S.O.A.P. is as laid back as “Friday Night Rockstar”, the previous album, was angst ridden. A sunny mellow vibe inhabits the tracklist with notable guests, underground legend Mick Swagger & Dancehall King Elephant Man, joining the fray.
This is an artist that you need to follow immediately, it’s all at once, is fun, is noisy, is irreverent,( if you’re conservative it might be unpleasant so you’re warned) but most of all it’s a great musician. In his own words:
“The album is about time passing I guess, personal doubts and demons, abuse and dreamsLewca
that will never come true. It’s mixed into 80’s-90’s sonic references that influenced Me &
S.O.A.P growing up”.

Voyager “green fields” Released on August 18th
In his own words: “Along with the upcoming album, is a complete spur of expression, from the composition of this track to the theft of my laptop, it all feels “right” it all feels like those things that just happen out of your control but they´re there for a reason, furthermore this track has a warm nostalgic feeling that most people relate to, that strong feeling that where you feel as if you´ve encountered this before yet it still looks new to your eyes, with playful melodies and catchy drums this track is easily one of my favorites ever.”
