NICO LUMINOUS self-releases “Love is Waiting” on December 9th, 2015 and it’s a fresh trip hop, chillout, and bass innovation through conscious, soul ,and downtempo production fused in with stylistic intention. This is Trip hop for Lovers. Still fully embodying full West Coast Hip-Hop spirit, this full-length album composed of 13 tracks, Nico brings back a fresh feel through classic bass lines, funky whistling melodies, lyrical depth, artist collaboration, minimal drums, and romantic-felt magic. I met Nico back at Art Outside ’13, as he was “scoping out the scene” before his set. Since then, I’ve been following his music! Hand painted Art Work by Hanz Haveron. feel good songs
