Astro Raw – aka Lucas Goodman and one half of New York-based duo LION BABE, alongside singer/songwriter and performance artist Jillian Hervey – has teased his just-announced, forthcoming mixtape ‘rawmix vol 1’ with the release of ‘U R My High’.
Premiered on The 405 today, the track is the first to be taken from the new mixtape ahead of its full release this Thursday. The 14-track project showcases Astro Raw’s stellar, one of a kind production credentials and his infectious, genre defying sounds which seamlessly mix R&B, hip-hop, soul, funk and dance to sultry effect. Featuring exclusive mixes – including reworked versions of tracks from the likes of Wiz Khalifa, Busta Rhymes and Alicia Keys – and rounded off with brand new remixes of the popular LION BABE tracks ‘Treat Me Like Fire’ and ‘Jungle Lady’, ‘rawmix vol 1’ is set to be the soundtrack to your summer.
Performing across the world as a part of LION BABE, Astro Raw has also delivered show-stopping DJ sets at prestigious events such as ELLE Style Awards, Whitney Museum’s Art Party, Bestival’s Party on the Moon and PAPER magazine x Ketel One Vodka, whilst as an in-demand DJ across the New York night scene he regularly performs popular sets at the cool, hot-spot Miss Lily’s.
Earlier this year, LION BABE released their latest single ‘Rockets’ ft Moe Moks. Receiving first looks on Noisey and Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show the song is set to appear on their forthcoming new EP which will be their first commercial release since their critically celebrated debut studio album ‘Begin’, which was released last year and featured collaborations with the likes of Pharrell Williams and Childish Gambino and career-defining tracks such as ‘Treat Me Like Fire’ and ‘Jump Hi’. Last year they released the electrifying mixtape ‘Sun Joint’ which coincided with their first headline US tour and a string of international festival performances, including Glastonbury, Reading & Leeds and more.
