Fast-rising Swiss producer and musician, and 2019 Music Producer Convention (MPC) ‘Beat Battle’ winner Luvanga is excited to unveil his sophomore solo EP titled LUV, the follow up project of his self-produced Mood For Life compilation album in collaboration with eight of the best new artists emerging from Switzerland, including Scor Novy and Beatrix Kiddo.
Premiering exclusively on We Plug Good Music, the 4-track LUV EP from Luvanga is a pre-taste to Luvanga’s highly-anticipated debut album, in which we see the Geneva-based producer, musician and composer, singing and rapping on his own music for the first time, in addition to producing all four songs on the project, which is mastered by Grammy and BRIT Award winner Mike Marsha (Calvin Harris, Jungle Brothers, Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers).
The LUV EP is flowing and fusing between genres such as jazz, hip-hop, funk, afrobeat, dance, rock and electronic music, while highlighting his multi-lingual (English, French, Lingala) range.
On this brand new project, Luvanga is bringing strong themes of revolt, love, equality, racism as well as celebration to the forefront, throughout the project, which Luvanga describes as “an unclassifiable, elusive work, sparing itself from all barriers in order to cross all borders”.
Luvanga is described as a musical architect and designer, his compositions are led by rigorous and precise orchestration, while showing strong diversity and personality.
A Swiss native to Congolese parents, he is a producer-artist and self-taught musician and composer whose sound can best be described as soul-filled mixed with funk, electronic and jazz sensibilities, coupled with drums that have been bathed in his African roots.
Speaking further about the LUV EP, the introduction project for his album rumoured to be coming out in the autumn, Luvanga adds that, “The songs on the EP were born out of my feelings, that’s how I compose.
My feelings are a central element, but the second step is where I find a philosophy for my creation. By listening to the records several times, the meaning of my work appears to me, a theme takes hold of the song”.
Listen to Luvanga’s LUV EP exclusively below before it is out anywhere else tomorrow.
