The electric atmospherics of Stuart Howard A.K.A. Lapalux were released this Spring on his second album Lustmore via Flying Lotus’s Brainfreeder imprint. Lapalux described his latest music and writing revolving around the term “hypnogogia” known as the “limbo between being awake and being asleep”.

Lapalux’s single “Don’t Mean a Thing” is a favorite on the album and originally premiered on Flying Lotus’s BBC Radio residency. Balanced with lush production, the structure of the song broods with a wavy mixture of a throbbing bass line against pleading grooves of hazy beats and heart wrenching vocal samples.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
