Lewca’s latest musical offering, “Boombap for Boomers,” marks his second basement session collaboration with S.O.A.P. It’s a refreshing departure from his previous album, “Friday Night Rockstar,” which was characterized by angst and intensity. This time, Lewca invites listeners to bask in a sunny, mellow vibe that pervades the tracklist.
Notably, Lewca’s musical journey began in a Brixton squat and led him to a similar abode in Paris by age nineteen. He’s a true artist at heart, having explored fine art and film before diving headfirst into music, just in the nick of time.Lewca’s eclectic influences range from the edgy world of class A drugs to the melodic brilliance of Bob Dylan and the urban sounds of ASAP Rocky. He draws inspiration from an array of artists, including The Clash, The Streets, and LCD Soundsystem. Despite his solo career, Lewca frequently collaborates with various musicians, often former bandmates. His main partner in crime, however, is S.O.A.P., a Parisian drum & bass DJ and Beatmaker. Their creative synergy dates back to 2013 when they shared a billing at a gig.Over the past few years, they’ve churned out three EPs and poured their hearts into two albums. “Friday Night Rockstar” dropped in December 2022, while “Boombap for Boomers” is set to grace our ears on September 15, 2023.
As for their aspirations? World domination and unimaginable wealth, of course! In the midst of this musical journey, Lewca resides in Normandy, where he balances the responsibilities of fatherhood, a mortgage, and the care of a semi-domesticated hedgehog named “Sonic.” With “Boombap for Boomers,” Lewca continues to carve out his unique musical path, promising listeners a melodic adventure worth embarking upon.

In a musical landscape often dominated by familiar sounds, Lorsay emerges as a fresh and captivating force in the world of trip-hop and electro-pop. Formed in 2020 and based between Paris and the south of France, this dynamic ensemble is led by Alex Gomez (guitar, machines), featuring the ethereal vocals of Orey, the bass-driven grooves of Rémy Peyrot des Gachons, and the keyboard wizardry of Fred Chauvin. Lorsay’s musical concoction is a blend of electro post-rock and melancholic pop, seamlessly weaving together acoustic instruments and electronic machines. In February 2020, they introduced themselves to the world with a self-produced EP titled “dead melodies for the nobodies,” a collection of seven entirely instrumental tracks that showcased their sonic prowess.
However, Lorsay didn’t stop there. They embarked on a journey to expand their musical horizons, collaborating with voices from diverse backgrounds. This includes Israeli jazz singer Avigail Danino, Texan rapper Sam Jacob, and English metal vocalist Dan Picknell. The result was their second self-produced EP, “back and fourth from winterland,” released in August 2021, accompanied by a visual universe crafted by the talented portrait photographer Samuel Kirszenbaum. In 2022, Lorsay graced the stage at the prestigious Printemps de Bourges, solidifying their presence in the music scene. And now, in March 2023, they’re back with their third EP, “spring fever,” promising to continue pushing the boundaries of their genre-blurring sound.
With Lorsay, trip-hop is not dead; it’s evolving and thriving in the hands of these innovative musicians. Keep an eye (and an ear) out for their mesmerizing melodies and ever-expanding sonic universe.
