Smooth Dazzles with "Drone" and "Kronos"
Solidifying himself among the upper-echelon of drum & bass talent during this past year, Luka “Smooth” Per has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that his thrilling style has a certain knack for resonating with DnB enthusiasts worldwide. With his Virgo Cluster and The Sky’s Gonna Break EPs now in the rear-view mirror, Smooth sets his sights on the future.
“Drone” is the piping hot new single off of Smooth’s highly anticipated debut LP, Leap of Faith, due out later in 2014. On the other end of the spectrum, we’re given “Kronos,” an uber-chaotic DnB howitzer that won’t hesitate to carve up your ear canals. Rooted in robust bass pulsations and detailed synth work, each of these earthquake-inducing tracks will have your entire neighborhood shaking! The other incredibly interesting aspect of this producer’s music is his noteworthy percussion. Smooth’s drums and hi-hats not only set up a sturdy foundation, but they also assertively take control of the driver’s wheel and throw the pedal to the metal! If you’re not paying close attention, you’ll be left in the dust.
This flourishing musician is clearly at the forefront of the new era of drum & bass, and for those of you who have yet to succumb to Smooth’s surreal sounds, this is the start of something beautiful.
