Ever since the birth of artist collective Daruma last spring, the brand has constantly been delivering specially curated material with artists such as Luca Lush, MYRNE, AIRWAV, Encschway affiliated. The innovation found in the collective is the ambiguity present in the artist's genre-bending nature. Proving themselves as more than Soundcloud phenomenon, the artists associated have been recognized by industry head honchos including Diplo as they continue to push boundaries in the scene.
At only 18 years old, Andrew Luce has amassed a large fan following and already made his way to the stage of substantial festivals including SnowGlobe Festival and Coachella. The producer creates a range of material from a twist on hip hop works such as Kid Cudi's "Day and Night" and Akon and Snoop Dogg's "I Want to F*ck You". His originals are sophisticated works with a clear skill for clean edits and have the flexibility of being hard trap bangers to sweet future bass tunes. Hawaiian producer graves is also taking over the experimental trap scene, with notable collaborations with upcoming names including MYRNE, Debroka, Havok Roth and more. The producer shows no mercy in the intensity of his works, with each release surpassing expectations in grit and fervency. Together the break-out artists collaborate in killer debut Daruma release "Up to You", shedding light a polished pop side you would not expect from the two.
The track kicks off with airy and youthful vocals from Chelsea Cutler followed by a fiery percussion build up. The vocal chops are tactfully weaved into infectious melodies that seep warmth throughout the track. Andrew Luce & graves electronic meets indie pop are reminiscent of blue skies and chilled out vibes perfectly fitting for the upcoming summer season. In this collaboration, the duo prove to be more than a niche Soundcloud sub-genre and develop a classic sound showcasing both talents.
