'No Turning Back' and 'LOCK UP' however showcases the side to juuku that made him known to the EDM circles, with scintillating and pounding drops that create a cascading wall of synthesisers and beautiful sounds that can only be explained when listening to it. Fan of juuku and beyond will love this EP, and it speaks volumes once again from one of the most exciting electronic acts around.
"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.”
