Australian producer and multi-instrumentalist LUCIANBLOMKAMP this week reveals Still No (feat Trim), the second cut to be shared from his new album Sick of What I Don’t Understand, after first single Nothing. Sick of What I Don’t Understand will be released in three parts over the coming year, beginning with Part 1 on October 13 via Different Recordings.
Still No features vocals from veteran East London Grime MC Trim, who has previously collaborated with the likes of James Blake, Skream and Mark Prichard. Lucian says of the collaboration, “To me, Trim is the type of artist I strive to be. Not because of his influence over any particular style, but exactly because of that. He has a gift for disobeying the norms and never following up on expectations. He’s a complete wildcard and that’s what makes him. No matter the instrumental, no matter the genre, no matter what era during his long-lasting career, if Trim’s on the track, it’s a Trim track. So as you can tell I feel it’s an honour to have him be a part of my new release, and I hope to do his name justice.”
LUCIANBLOMKAMP’s third album Sick of What I Don’t Understand is themed around difficult transformations and self-realisation. Almost a commentary on itself, it’s a documenting of the processes Lucian went through to break out of his previous accomplished but limited incarnation to new levels of ambition and confidence he now shows as a musician.
