London-based EDM producer and guitarist, Lekna’s latest single, ‘Want It’, may unravel as a definitive tropical house mix, but pay close attention to the shimmering melodies, and you will find that the notes pull themselves up from the roots of blues.
Liel Bar-Z’s mesmerising vocals don’t dominate the mix, instead, the harmonic effect-laden vocal notes seem to seamlessly breathe around the ardent and arrestive beats that will make sure that your rhythmic pulses are interconnected with the bassline far before the drops start to open up aural rabbit holes beneath you.
With plenty more mixes locked and loaded, and plans to release an EP in 2022, Lekna deserves a spot on your radar.
Want It will be available to stream from June 4th. You’ll be able to check it out for yourselves by heading over to Soundcloud.
