  • London-based producer Lukid will release his third album this month, entitled Chord. Despite having just three records under his belt so far, Lukid has carved out a distinctive sound for himself that lies somewhere between experimental hip-hop acts like Flying Lotus and UK-based artists such as Actress––the latter of whom will release Chord via his Werk Discs imprint. Writing about his 2008 album Foment, Oli Marlow described Lukid's style as having a "low-slung, late night pace" and "punchy post-Dilla drum programming." The new album will feature three tracks from that CD-only release (hence making their vinyl debut), plus eight brand new tunes. It will be available exclusively as a triple-LP, with a limited pressing of 500 copies.
