After receiving immense positive feedback on her recent single ‘Till The Day I Die‘, freeform bass mainstay Lucii returns to the release radar with her sophomore EP, Wicked. The 4-track project arrives just in time for Halloween, the DJ/producer’s favorite holiday, and highlights her knack for creating relentless bass cuts. Marking her debut EP release on WAKAAN, Wicked is out now across all streaming platforms.
The EP kicks off with ‘Spell’, a lively tune that immediately begins with a softly resonant vocal and deep, brooding tone. It quickly picks up its pace and introduces several hard-hitting, glitchy bass drops that round out the rest of the nearly three-and-a-half-minute sonic offering. ‘Till The Day I Die’ follows, and features Lucii utilizing the piano, her flowing hazy vocals, and otherworldly instrumentation to create an atmospherically heady dance music gem. The EP’s penultimate headbanging-inducing track, ‘Wonky’, is a bass-laden club-ready weapon that serves as quintessential Lucii at her absolute best. The EP’s final song, ‘Vibe’, is characterized by a harmonious vocal accompanied by a hefty, propelling beat that carries throughout its entirety.
Eager fans that have been awaiting Lucii’s next release can now rejoice, and right in time for spooky season. With four original productions featuring Lucii’s hardcore bass music sensibilities, her new EP is sure to entice listeners the world over.
Lucii is a DJ/producer hailing from Orlando, Florida who began producing her own unique, signature brand of bass music just two short years ago. Her debut 4-track Abducted EP was released in October of 2018 to much critical acclaim. She would eventually sign to Liquid Stranger’s revered WAKAAN in March of the following year as the first woman on the label, with her first release on the imprint being her highly-regarded single ‘Neptune’. Since her foray into the electronic dance music scene, she’s collaborated with rising Australian dance music talent Tek Genesis, U.K. dubstep titan DirtySnatcha, Montreal-based bass DJ/producer Sam Lamar, and esteemed WAKAAN staple Champagne Drip. At 96,000 combined streams across platforms, Lucii set a high precedent with the release of her last track ‘Till The Day I Die’, a precedent rife with lofty expectations that she effectively exceeds with ease in all the best ways audibly possible. Wicked marks the rising talent’s second EP, fourth original production of the new decade, first WAKAAN-released EP, and eighth overall release on the label.
