Trap City Thursday at Kyo KL on 4 April 2019 features the Malaysian debut of Lunice.
Born and raised in the city of Montreal, Canadian producer / DJ LUNICE has always been a disciple of hip hop. Coming up on breakbeats and having taken a stab at nearly all elements, from graffiti to beatboxing, he cut his teeth as a breakdancer and perfected his sense of rhythm and ear for music before hitting the decks and making his own beats.
Now, Lunice is an international sensation- overthrowing dance floors everywhere he goes with his unique style: a perfect fusion of traditional and new outlook trap production. With a handful of other peers, he is crafting a powerful new lane in music with bigger and bolder visions for hip hop production.
Crafting his early education listening to masters like Dilla, Madlib, and 9th Wonder, his outlook completely changed when he got his first break DJing legendary parties in the then-budding Montreal Bass scene, circa 2007-2008. Experimenting with electro synth sounds layered over pounding bass and drums, he soon developed a sonic aesthetic that kept the spirit of rap music while remaining as potent on the dancefloor as anything else. Crowds gravitated towards Lunice right away for his unique energy and charisma on the decks. Since his very first DJ gigs, he stood out as the guy with the most energy and dopest moves.
Since then, he’s been leaving a trail of smoke everywhere he goes. Producing "Runnin'" for
Azelia Banks and appearing in the 212 video, a critically-acclaimed EP on Warp as TNGHT- a collabo project with close friend and fellow visionary Hudson Mohawke.
Trap City residents Nahsyk, Naufal, Kidd Santhe & Dr X also feature for the night.
