Name: Luan Boes
The Spoken Word
The new-age artist movement has never been at its highest like it was in 2017 and with the rise of the new talent that has emerged, Refractor was gifted to us and 2018 has shown us that he is here to stay. Still finding his feet but has surely found his sound, Luan production quality has been nothing short of ruthless as of late. With enough bombs in his arsenal to come in 2018 we are keen to see what this year will bring us from this humble and down-to-earth individual. It’s only up from here!
1) Describe Yourself In Three Words
Luan: Passionate, self-disciplined and patient.

3) Your Favorite Release Of All Time & Artist To Watch Out For ?
Luan: That’s a difficult question for me to answer. Over the years there have been a few releases that have really grown on me and influenced the style that I write today. Just to name a few: Antispin – Cropped Cirlce, Disco Volante – Dare2Disco Deliriant – Miracle Cure, Squid Inc – Indelible and Rubix Qube – Konvolution EP.
Luan: Watch out for Loophole, Priest and Contrast, these guys are seriously talented and are just getting started.
4) Advice For The Dreamers, Trendsetters & Up N’ Comers Out There?
Luan: Practice, Practice and Practice! Unfortunately there is no way to get around the hours that you need to put in to get to where you want to be. Writing great music is a long process and a personal journey that requires dedication, commitment and patience. Stay passionate and remind yourself why you love writing music especially when you are frustrated when things get challenging. Most importantly, write music from the heart, remember that music is a form of expression.
5) What do you have going on currently? What can we look forward to?
Luan: 2018 is going to be a very exciting year. There are a few things on the horizon which I am extremely excited about. Expect a few releases over the next few months, more bookings around the Mother City and some more epic surprises which will be revealed later this year
