Lunice hints at TNGHT comeback, Diplo pairing in new interviewTnght

In a recent interview with SR-MAG, Lunice answered questions about touring with Madonna, his production influences on his debut CCCLX LP, producing with Kanye and Diplo, where he thought the cultural shift in electronic music is going, and a tantalizing hint at TNGHT‘s reunion.

What’s more, Lunice also discussed work he’s been doing with Diplo, revealing a possible collaborative project with the Ma and has been working with his old counterpart Hudson Mohawke for a potential TNGHT comeback, as they’ve been hinting since the end of last year. Lunice and Hudson Mohawke haven’t worked together since 2013, since the release of one single “ACRYLICS,” and before that in 2012 they released their TNGHT EP via Warp and LuckyMe that featured the massively popular EDM trap hitter, “Higher Ground,” that rocked festivals stages in the hay-day of electronic trap. In 2013, the trap duo co-produced “Blood on the Leaves” with Kanye West from his critically acclaimed Yeezus album.

Lunice has produced with the likes of Angel Haze, Azealia Banks, Denzel Curry, Rick Ross, Le1f, and many more aside from the artists listed above. His music cuts through the contemporary dance music landscape through textured sounds, clear production, and experimental pairings that have made his production skills a highly sought-after commodity.
