Producers are interesting beings. Like singers and rappers, they have feelings, grooves, sounds and all of that jazz but they always seem to be a little more eclectic than other artists most of the time, right?
David Luke is the epitome of the eclectic producer. The time has come for those that are aware and unaware of the young producer’s talent to experience a new collection of work, and unlike his collaborative project with Steve Cantrell, Thoughts After Second Thoughts, this one is solo.
On August 29, Luke released his first full-length project, The Preface. If you’re already a fan and follower of the Albany, GA born-soundsmith then you’ll know that he released an EP, For You, Ms. Love, in March but this project will give an opportunity to hear a story crafted from personal experience and experimentation from Luke that sounds like nothing out on the popular airwaves.
The Preface is full of funk, electronica, hip-hop and soul sounds fused in to one work full of love, lust, confusion and self-discovery. Luke said that he “created this project in a time of experimentation and learning’. He noted that he was learning his own sound at the time and how create songs and this turned out to be the result. He also noted that the true result will be his next project but it probably won’t be released until next year.
This project is a 19-track collection of story telling and emotions but don’t fret the length, the songs vary in length as Luke chronicles what it’s like to meet someone and battle through a relationship that ultimately wasn’t meant to be. Luke produced all of the music on this project and teamed up with a few close people to add the needed influence to make this project a well-rounded story. Although the story is told from a male’s perspective, Luke intends for his music to empathetically relatable on both ends of the male/female spectrum. The Preface features A’Lex, Briley, Jo3 H3nson, Anthony Brown and Stef Rae.
