Luminous Ace’s most famous song, “Nine’n” has officially reached over 1,000,000 streams on Spotify. Of course, any artist’s first million is always enormous. This track samples dialogue from the late XXXTENTACION. The beat itself is boom-bap-inspired and familiar to XXXTENTACION: “i spoke to the devil in miami, he said everything would be fine.” Luminous Ace brings his heartfelt bars to the table and speaks on how he wants to ease his pain, how his mother had to work day and night shifts to bring in money, and how he can settle with the essential tools to make music. Listen to it below!
His most recent release is “Not Today,” with Lo-Key. Once again, boom-bap-inspired drums and also a lo-fi-hip-hop-Esque loup. Another reoccurrence is heartfelt lyrics. If you can’t tell, Luminous Ace is all about speaking from the heart. Not many artists like to talk about their feelings, but Ace is the opposite. He embraces his emotional transparency in his music so that his listeners can relate and maybe benefit from his words. Listen to it below!
