Blu Hustle creates music that oscillates between the genres of Trip-Hop, Synthpop and EDM.
The lyrics do not intend to convey a coherent narrative. More so the music aims at painting atmospheric, sonic images that reverberate in the imagination of the listeners.
By utilizing electronic music equipment such as synthesizers and digital drum pads and blending them with old-school hip-hop beats a unique aesthetic is being created. The sound can be compared vaguely to urban artists such as Massive Attack, Apparat or Rhi.
All music is recorded and produced by Gunther Schumann.
The music deals with experiences of alienation in modern life and urban spaces. In the future, an audio-visual performance will be realized that fuses video and audio content. The goal is, to create an immersive experience for the audience that transcends the definitions of visual arts and entertainment.
Since this future project is very complex I am currently looking for artistic project partners with the focus on camera, dance/performance and production design. If you feel compelled to work with me on this project please do not hesitate to contact me.
The debut album Changing Tides“ was first published in November 2020 and deals with subjects of emotional intensity in romantic relationships.
The latest album is titled “Rain City“ and will be released in the middle of 2021. It addresses the conflict: individual vs. urban space.
Right now, a music video for "Rain City“ is in production.
Currently, there is an artistic music video in production for the track “When uuuuuuuu Sleep“. This experimental music video tells the story of urban ghosts which awaken at night in forgotten urban spaces – so called non-places.
By the use of a video projector, short animated video sequences are projected into urban space which are then being filmed and edited.
The video will be published in the middle of 2021 and it is funded by the Art Foundation of Saxony-Anhalt and the Klosterbergische Stiftung.
