LUCIANBLOMKAMP is amongst Australia's elite with Sick Of What I Don't Understand Pt 2

Including collaborations with Eliott, Jace XL and more, the second segment of the Melbourne producer's three-part album is his most spectacular yet.

Across 2018, Melbourne producer LUCIANBLOMKAMP is taking on a huge task. Releasing his debut album in three separate parts, the forward-thinking musician is aiming to push his production versatility and dexterity to the limits, each album third building on the last to form a cohesive yet remarkably varied full record that is sure to cement the musician amongst the Australian production elite. Following on from the spiralling, four-track first portion that arrived earlier this year, the second taste of Sick Of What I Don't Understand has now been released and its a complex and intricate display of LUCIANBLOMKAMP's expertise, enlisting collaborators in Jace XL, Rosebud Leach and Eliott for the four-track exploration of his many sounds.

The album's second volume is LUCIAMBLOMKAMP at his most dynamic and potent to date, twisting and turning between warped sub-genres and sounds that all fall in line with his thick electronic intricacy and attention to detail. Endless, the lush and climactic opener, is an R&B-shaded journey that is built around twinkling samples and deep synth, something the producer warps into a charging beast for the single's club-centric final minute. The buckling, drum-and-bass-infused closer Doing This For You twists and bends in a similar fashion, contrasting Eliott's airy vocal line with a rushing production saturated in percussion. However, the album segment also dives into a more subdued flavour. Black Dove, for example, is a jazzy display of rich R&B that unites oozing vocals with a brass-focused instrumental, a fair leap away from the quick-paced nature of the many of the other tracks thus far.

"Part 2 is the emotional and tonal turning point in the Sick Of What I Don't Understand series - the initial transition from dark to light," says LUCIAN on the album segment, which you can dive into below before the final third arrives later this year.
