One of tech house’s most beloved rising stars at the moment, Lubelski has had a watershed year for his production career, and he shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Although a trained multi-instrumentalist, Lubelski’s natural ear for teasing out psychedelia, acid, and disco within his own tracks and DJ mixes has earned him recognition throughout the underground dance world. Lubelski’s journey into music initially saw the analog-junkie release tracks with a variety of esteemed labels in the earlier part of the decade, but eventually found a home with San Diego party professionals and dance label Desert Hearts. In July, the release of “Favela Funk,” a collaboration with fellow Desert Hearts regular RYBO that hears the duo channeling a classic warehouse rave vibe driven around Brazilian-influenced beats and vocals., immediately becoming a staple for the crew. Last week, he released his sophomore EP with Desert Hearts, I Want Acid, and the title track indicates a strong dose of golden age rave-influences, complete with groovy basslines and energetic rhythms.
