Beautiful Music Part 2 is the sequel to Luck-one and Dekk’s first album: Beautiful Music, which was released over three years ago. Together Luck-one and Dekk form a solid team with Luck-one providing deep lyrics and rap vocals while Dekk takes account for the production and beats which are characterized by thick drums, piano and electronic sounds.
Beautiful Music part 2 holds more songs and has a better buildup than part one. It also has more aggressive tracks on it wherein Luck-one shows his diversity and energy. I personally prefer the calmer tracks over the hyped up ones because they give the lyrics from Luck-one a chance to flower better. This doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy the more up tempo tracks; they’re solid and it seems Luck-one has no difficulty with adapting to the beats served by Dekk.
Luck-one’s flow and lyrics together with Dekk’s beats made it into a pretty neat album. You shouldn’t hesitate to check this one out if you’re into Hip-Hop.
You can stream and download Beautiful Music Part 2 at any price here.
I also find Luck-one’s Myspace bio worth sharing:
”Our lives consist of an intrinsically broken string of interactions through which we share of ourselves, principally through the imperfect form of communication known as speech. Clearly, our thoughts and ideas are capable of being directly communicated in this fashion, but if this is the stuff upon which our lives and existences are formed shouldn’t we want to express more than that? What about our dreams and emotions? In comes art.When you come across a piece of art; true art, it conveys an emotion. Wether it be a painting by Gomez, a solo by Coltrane…..a sixteen by Juice or a sonnet by Bach, what we get when experience and interact with another being’s artistic expression is a feeling, an emotion. When I listen to Tupac it makes me want to do something. It makes me want to pick up a book or hit the block and act crazy but it makes me want to DO, to act. Our art should serve as an impetus to activity because words in and of themselves can only do so much to effect change. Without art, TRUE art our lives are incomplete and the experiences within which they are framed are meaningless. Just a bunch of words” – Luck-one
