Luboku Joins Niche Talent Agency

Niche talent Agency is excited to welcome producer/songwriter Luboku to the roster!

Having announced himself as a talent on the rise with his previous release ‘Without You’, today he shows his versatility with ‘None of You’ that uncovers a more vulnerable side to his work and again showcases the recent Triple J Unearthed Artist of the Week’s penchant for delicate soundscapes, he pairs it with a surprising vocal delivery which grips the listener by the heartstrings and doesn’t let go.

His debut release was a three-track EP At Dawn with NZ-based collaborator Hosaia in 2014. Luboku took charge of production, crafting a sweeping, delicate bed of music with Hosaia laying down vocals. Led by the single ‘Set to Go’ the ​At Dawn ​EP reached in excess of 50,000 streams in its first week, with Indie Shuffle noting it as containing “a​ strength and confidence well beyond most acts debuting their work together”. The release of the EP ignited something ​within 20-year-old Luboku, something he needed to pursue.

Luboku’s debut solo single ‘The Surface’ was released in late 2017 – the first single from a new body of work. ‘The Surface’ is an exploration of dark electronics, a creation of sounds that were harsh, brittle and organic – steamrolled by a thick, clean and synthetic surface.

His euphoric recent single ‘Without You’ saw support from around the world – with the likes of XLR8R, Indie Shuffle and This Song Is Sick giving it their tick of approval. The track also put him in the sights of Triple J Unearthed, who selected him as their Feature Artist a few weeks back.
