With special guests Future, Pusha T, M.I.A, Novelist, Leikeli47, Rustie and Tirzah, also continuing his visual collaboration with multi-medium artist, Jonathan Zawada. LuckyMe are proud to present Baauer’s long awaited debut album, Aa. Following the smash GoGo! single (2015), The ß EP with Rae Sremmurd and Alunageorge (2014), laser-etched vinyl 12” Dum Dum (2013), and genre defining ‘Higher’ with Just Blaze and Jay Z (2012) – not to mention the Harlem Shake phenomenon. Baauer sets off again to change contemporary American dance music with a highly anticipated debut album. Aa (pronounced ‘double a’) is a record that could only be made by a kid born of New York inspired by rap and dance music culture, traveling the globe sampling and processing found sounds. This is bright, stadium, urban dance music from the 26-year-old Portuguese New Yorker (via London and Philadelphia) known as Harry Rodrigues.
Cashmere Cat - Norwegian artist Magnus August Hoiberg, who has worked with Ludacris, Ariana Grande and pop hit-maker Benny Blanco - releases his first EP for LuckyMe. It's a very accomplished work, every beat and electronic contortion bursting with character. The expressive waves of autotune and electro thump of previous single 'With Me' give way to the stuttering rhythms of 'Pearls' and the feather-light drip of 'Rice Rain'. Title track 'Wedding Bells' is the standout though, sultry voices and shiny, delicate production mixing with the thick low-end of '00s hip hop for infectious results.
LuckyMe are proud to announce Eclair Fifi’s debut record - ‘Never Let Go’ by Mickey Oliver & Shanna Jae. The first in a series of Chicago House and Latin Freestyle Drumapella, Percapella & Synthapella reissues & remixes. “I’ve had this record for years – my parents were into Chicago House and it’s been with me forever. Shanna Jae is better known as Paris Grey from Inner City… Goes without saying ‘Good Life’ is one of my favourite childhood records but a few years ago I was caught playing ‘Never Let Go Drumapella’ out at New Years Eve in London and it always changes the energy in a club. I’m a sucker for percapellas and have played them in as pivot tracks in sets since I started DJing; high energy drums, wet vocals and the space to take the set into different directions – ‘Never Let Go’ is a moment whenever it’s played. When I first approached Mickey Oliver it was through the comments section on his old website that kept crashing. I had to find his email via the site’s code. We were sent a master to work with, recently digitised from the original 1987 tape. Then I had the record remixed by a load of friends I’ve met touring, all picked for their drums. Aden’s is jacking, Strip Steve for his percussive 808 house sound and Airmax97 for a contemporary club edit. I wanted to compile a series of records and remixes that I have a long connection with since my first days DJing on Interface Radio in the early 00s, long before LuckyMe. To bring it together I tracked down phone and fax numbers, label studio addresses that had been turned into auto trade garages in Miami... It’s been a long time coming to put this series together. I’ve hand-made cover illustrations for all of the vocalists. It’s not just a ‘project’ to me – I can boldly say this is my favourite music and it’s about celebrating true dance music.” – Eclair Fifi. London. 2016 Mickey Oliver is the pioneering Chicago House producer, DJ and founding member of the Hot Mix 5 from Chicago’s 102.7 WBMX. Shanna Jae is the preeminent vocalist renowned for both her solo record produced by Mickey Oliver and as one half (as Paris Grey) of Inner City with Kevin Saunderson. The announce of Eclair Fifi’s debut series of 12” Eps comes fresh from her headline radio show on NTS that launched in January 2016. The Scottish artist and illustrator started DJing on pirate radio at Interface FM in London at 16-years-old, and has since gone to to host her own In New DJs we Trust residency on Radio 1, the LuckyMe show on Rinse FM and of course there’s her iconoclastic RA mix that closed out 2015. If you joined her European headline tour with Nina Las Vegas, or fell in love at any of the Eclair Fifi & Pals parties in Paris, or lost your mind at MoMA PS1 in New York or at Ed Banger’s 20 Years of Party in London, you already know her peerless vibe and consummate knowledge of Latin Freestyle, Italo, techno, hip hop and RnB. When not DJing Eclair Fifi is the designer and illustrator behind covers and videos for Baauer, Ryan Hemsworth, Machinedrum and many more.
LuckyMe proudly present the debut album from Jacques Greene - “Feel Infinite” Includes a fold out poster with new & exclusive artwork by Hassan Rahim “The essence of the record is to draw emotions and moments that above all, feel human within the context of dance music,” says Jacques Greene of his highly anticipated debut album, ‘Feel Infinite’. “I want it to be celebratory of all that we feel and do and experience - the beautiful, the good, and the bad.” Jacques Greene is the enigmatic, young artist who broke out of a generation of independent electronic labels Uno, 3024, Night Slugs and LuckyMe as a genre-defining producer and DJ (via 2011’s ’Another Girl’ – one of Pitchfork’s Songs of the Decade, 2013’s underground favorite ’On Your Side’ ft. How To Dress Well and 2016’s undeniable summer anthem ’You Can’t Deny’). Jacques Greene crafted a musical blueprint that inspired a generation who were raised on, and looked to bring together the intersection of contemporary music growing up in the 90s: hip hop, RnB, house and techno. At its heart, ‘Feel Infinite’ is a world of music connected to the utopian idea of club culture - music about the club, rather than specifically club music in and of itself. Written over the course of two years, this debut album is the purest, most personal expression of the Jacques Greene sound and emotion created by the born and raised Montreal artist, renowned for collaborating and remixing Tinashe, Radiohead, Sampha and Shlohmo. In 2016, Jacques Greene released the surprise single ‘You Can’t Deny’ to acclaim and adulation, a beautifully undeniable, soulful techno record, followed up with ‘Afterglow’, a euphoric club record - both of which are included on the album alongside a further nine stunning tracks.
