From the SoundOf Mix Series



This week we've got an exclusive mix from LA producer, DJ and champion of black & brown house music, Brandon Lucas.

Purple Label Sound, Lucas's label, was founded to promote a new generation of house and techno musicians of colour. The debut release on Purple Label Sound is an infectious and empowering collaboration between Lucas and iconic Black activist, Dr. Cornel West.

"Got That Hope" is a slice of funky house in which Lucas showcases his versatile and powerful voice over a groove-driven cut. "Got That Hope" features lyrics from a 19th-century hymn, which Dr. West intones throughout. Lucas and Dr. West recorded the track this summer, a track that speaks to their belief in the need, and hope for, change in America. As the song states it’s a "narrative of catastrophe lyrically expressed, that does not allow catastrophe to have the last word."
