Juuku’s debut Dim Mak EP, “Lavender Dreams & Scarlet Nightmares,” is a stunning display of genre-blending talent and innovative production. From start to finish, the EP exudes an emotive, dynamic, and hyped electronic energy.
Tracks like “Lavender,” “Without U,” and “Moonlight” offer a dreamy and smooth sonic experience, while “No Turning Back” and “Lock Up” showcase Juuku’s heavier side of production. The EP features an impressive lineup of artists, including Namelle, NEWYON, holywatr, Gianni Taylor, and a collaboration with S.S.O.S.
On the EP’s meaning, juuku shares; “Lavender Dreams and Scarlet Nightmares is my gateway to the two different sides of juuku. I have synesthesia, which means I see colors when I listen to music. Anytime I make music – it’s usually in the tone of red (scarlet) or purple (lavender). For my art, and the universe I’ve been building with it, the lavender side represents the beautiful, wondrous atmospheric side of juuku, while the scarlet side represents the darker, chaotic worlds that I create. This EP is my first foray into exploring both sides of this universe, across multiple genres, trying to find myself in different parts of these worlds, so that I could share it with you.”
