Smoking Chicago Downbeats | Joshua Keckner aka Lokua produces downbeats with crackling beats sprinkled with jazzy melodies and a laid-back mood. The Chicago native enjoys creating moody atmospheres from smiling tracks like "A Thousand Pages" to darker vibes like in "Crystal Ball" where haunting voices make you shiver a little bit.
Joshuas productions are best when he slows down the beats, so we can nod empathic. "Trails" comes along with jazz-influenced melodies and a diversity of styles ranging from instrumental Hip Hop to slighty Elektro-influenced tracks like "Trails".
Strong tracks like "A Thousand Pages", "Tai Chi" or "Crystal Ball" could be used as a colourful film score. These tracks are magnificent and carry their own mood. A release which makes me want to visit Chicago and its musiciansmakes me curious to see this city...
