The story of LUI HILL is a fascinating one: discovered, as if by chance, on a trip to South Africa. He asks an important question, put plainly:
“Are we just too bad inside
to do the good things right?
Made of dust belonging to
the ancient time..”— LUI HILL
It's the ever-present falsetto, the eighth-notes on the piano for the chorus, that gives hints of a classic Motown-type soul. But the production is modern, opinionated, and rife with combo organ sounds. LUI HILL, with his new single Ancient Dust, breathes life into electronic soul, joining a throwback sense of groove with a powerful synth-pop vibe.
Lui Hill is an electronic soul artist signed to Filter Music Group. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
