Video Radar: Lukid

Those of you who remember my "Underground Beatsmith" feature on Lukid will remember that I didn't use the term "underground" lightly, the guy is barely on the lighter side of anonymous.

So imagine my surprise when Tom Wilson managed to score a rare on-camera interview with the man himself as a feature for Maschine (promoters in Bucharest, not the Native Instrument device).

The camera-shy producer talks about a few subjects, including his introduction into music, his next album, and.... about his dislike for being on camera and talking about music. But hey, we'll take what we can get. As a part-time music journalist, it's strange how the artists that give you the least about themselves make you the most curious to know more.

Although shying away from press, it's interesting to check out his Facebook fan page, where he shares a variety of strange photos and playfully interacts with his fans. He also seems to enjoy confusing/trolling people on Omegle (the anonymous chat website), proving that there is a acerbic sense of humor behind all the mystery.

  5. Camera shy? Really? I couldn't tell! :o

    All jokes aside though, who needs that stuff? The music speaks for you. I like that he's a bit of a mystery.

  8. Interesting to find someone who shys away from the camera. Popular media would have us believe everyone wants attention.
