Lorde Sanctus didn’t share all too much information about himself, but according to his SoundCloud profile he’s based in L.A. His music doesn’t immediately give him away as a West Coast artist, though he does shout out HBK at one point. His production is a driving fusion of sounds, including a hypnotic horn loop, and a bassline that sounds like it could have come out of a Massive Attack song. It’s a refreshing sound that’s instantly appealing, and Sanctus keeps it all together with some precise and stylish rhymes.
