HABITS & ADDICTIONS
MESH1009 | 28.10.2022 | CD + DIGITAL
New colours of modern Electro-Pop.
With his first two albums „Dimension Shift“ (MESH1005/2019) and „CTRL+S“ (MESH1007/2021) and the unique mix of trap, wave, ambient electro and synth-pop, LMX set exclamation marks. At that time, the musician from Münster was just 16 or 18 years old.
On his new album „Habits & Addictions“ LMX has matured and has further developed his atmospheric sound. 10 varied Electro-Pop songs are deliberately based on the 80s. Electronic beats, pulsating sequencer lines, catchy melodies and warm analogue synthesizer sounds are reminiscent of early OMD, Depeche Mode or Yazoo. With a very own character, polished sound design and modern production, LMX transports these atmospheric retro vibes into the present day.
It is powerful and disturbing when LMX – torn by anger and remorse, reproaches against yourself and others – reflects on the consequences of one ́s own actions. On the other hand, thoughtful lyrics and the unique voice of LMX unfold a fragile emotional world full of longing and melancholy. This polarity is also symbolized by the cover artwork, which LMX – in the truest sense of the word – created with his own hand. Amid blurred, distorted colors and a colorful euphoric environment, a hand seems to reach for something, hoping for rescue, like a drowning man. „Please don’t let me drown in this mess I’ve made“ it sounds appropriate in the “Changes”-Remix.
„Habits & Addictions“ is a dense, touching and moving musical work that once again underpins LMX’s creative claim and makes it clear, that still a lot can be expected from the young artist in the future.

new wave nostalgia, which feels both fresh for 2022 and steeped in historical authenticity.
Habits & Addictions is emotion filled, raw and yet, in the end, looking for the light, LMX might become your addiction.
Am Ende steht ein Album zu Buche, das zukunftsweisend ist, sowohl für die elektronsche Musik, als auch für das Projekt selbst.
