Like his nomad existence (the story began in Sweden and continues between France and Japan when he’s not on a road trip across the world), Hugo’s music gathers the human and sound experiences he lived until then.
After a degree of architecture specialized in the relation between sound and space, he builds his tracks around the symbiosis between melodies and textures that reflect the places, atmospheres and main events that stained the creation process.
Through influences that are directly linked to his own life whether they come from ambient, hip hop and broken beat for his rhythmic parts, or from jazz and Brazilian/Japanese music for his melodies, Hugo LX creates a universe dedicate to travelling.
After several years of hip hop productions, prestigious collaborations and a handful Deep House releases on the best labels of the gender, Hugo LX comes back with Akegata, new LP embodying five years of travelling.
Through ambient and hip-hop beats (Doma, Flowers of Life), twinkling and cosmic samples (Dream & Realities, Ascent), or uptempo tracks that invite to dance (Hikari, November), Hugo LX carries us into a world where the unique language is the one of travelling.
