When it comes to refreshing new takes on house music, Life on Planets is positioning himself at the forefront of this innovative wave. The Baltimore native takes his roots steeped in jazz, funk, RnB, and hip-hop, and fuses them into dance floor fare with a modern twist. His most recent works—a single with David Marston dubbed “Take Flight” and his lauded Soul Clap Records EP, Only You—have been particularly meaningful, pairing lyricism on deep topics like political activism, perseverance, and self-discovery with irresistibly catchy electronic grooves.
The latest in this string of forward-thinking releases is “Glowstick”, the first single off a forthcoming EP of the same name on Kitsuné Musique. In it, Life on Planets joins with fellow East Coast talent, Taylor Bense, for a tribute to the rave scene, and the life-changing effects it holds beneath its glittering surface. A thick, funk-heavy bassline anchors the tune, while verses from Life on Planets and Bense are its anchor piece. It’s a laid back, yet danceable tune suited for sunsets on the rooftop or dancing at home in the living room.
