Really inspiring and very organic electronic music from Devon native and friend of the shop, Lecu.

Description

Debuting on CD for the first time is British electronic artist and musician Leo Cunningham (aka Lecu) with his album ‘In Balance’.

Recorded in his bedroom studio on the Devonshire coast during 2019, the record sees Cunningham combine synthesiser improvisations, field recordings and sampling to create rich and deep textural landscapes.

Lecu had previously released two improvised albums in 2018, and said that with this release he wanted to capture a more polished, but still spontaneous sound.

The album title ‘In Balance’ was inspired by Lecu observing a spec of dust glistening in the light of a window, how it sat suspended perfectly in the air, and the complexities felt in just a few seconds of viewing.

'In Balance’ also refers to the mix of ambient, jazz, dub and classical music with found and self-recorded samples scattered across the 11 songs.

Lecu began writing music after relocating home to rural Devon from Cardiff, and found solace from mental health problems in working on calming music away from gigs and bands, a safe haven away from the rest of the world.

Sound and motifs across ‘In Balance’ are used to recreate natural occurrences, for example the fluttering panning synth in 'An Island Blooming from the Sea’ is meant to evoke a flock of birds flying in unison, and mounting peaks, crescendos and lulls across various tracks are meant to symbolise enormity and fragility across the natural world.

The album is a record to bathe in, and contemplate the balance of everything, big and small.

Playlist

Drift Recommends


Alongside a weekly playlist of new and old tracks (tune in via the news section), all of the Drift staff also contribute to a weekly 'Drift Recommends' playlist.

Updated every Friday, it's full of new tracks that we love, absolute bangers that have popped back into our heads and all sorts of other weird avenues. It is supposed to sound a little bit like that feeling of walking through the door at Drift.

You can subscribe to it via our Spotify public profile.
