Lusine: Lines Between Techno & Electro-Pop Blur

The lines between techno and electro-pop continue to blur on the fourth studio album from Jeff McIlwain, aka Lusine. “The concept behind Sensorimotor pulls from a special kind of double meaning of the word,” McIlwain recently noted. Beginning with “Canopy”, an opener seethed in wind chimes and harmonic distortion, the album moves on to more synth heavy, progressive dance tracks like “Slow Motion”, “The Level”, and “Flyway.” This is the stuff that Lusine has made a name for himself producing, and he should stick to it. As a whole, Sensorimotor’s mix of vocals with intelligent dance music keeps the listener in limbo, doing many things well but nothing really great.

Release Date: 3/3/2017 on Ghostly International
