Single Of The Week: Luka feat. Sio Blackwidow – Yum Yum (N’Dinga Gaba Global Diplomacy Soul Remix) (We Go Deep)
‘Yum Yum’ or yummie yummie, should I rather say about this definitive jewel. With N’Dinga Gaba bringin’ us to soothing territories. What a sweet and peaceful impression he delivers over a delicate African House-influenced rhythm pattern. With South African songstress Sio Blackwidow somehow reminding of Erin Leah at times (remember ‘Radio Billie’ which N’Dinga remixed as well!).
‘Yum Yum’… Just what it says from the very first note…

Then he would get back to producing after a 5 year hiatus teamin’ up with Ivica Lazarevic on the ‘MidEvil Disko’ EP in a minimal mood.
Speaking of his music, Luka describes it as a blend of various influences. From Lounge, Nu Jazz, soulful Hip-Hop and deep Dub. To Techno, Tribal and Electro-acoustic to name a few. Quoting Pezzner, Shur-I-Kan, and Andre Lodemann among his favorite artists…
