Midas Touch is the third single from J Luchiano; an up and coming Hip Hop artist who has one of the freshest approaches to Trap I’ve heard in, well, I can’t quite remember. His unique blend of Trap and harmony takes away all of the harsh tonality from the kicks and snares of the 808’s by pouring a seamlessly entrancing amount of reverb over the multi-layer beat. Whilst the momentum and the hype behind the sound is palpable, you’re also treated to the fluidity of the rhythm which rests perfectly against J Luchiano’s lyrical style.
With no use for excessive vocal reverb the Atlanta-based artists authentically resounding vocal capacity blows 90% of other Trap artists out of the water. Combined with his experimentally pioneering approach to Hip Hop, it’s hard not to get excited by the potential of J Luchiano. If you were waiting for the prodigal son of Trap, he may very well have arrived.
