“Instead Of Number Five” is the new single release from the second Golden Rules compilation sampler and it presents two very talented musicians from Spain: Joe Sturges and Lucas De Mulder. The warm sounding guitars on the various and effective style of drums from Joe Sturges make this track an easy listening pleasure of late summer vibes.
United by the jazz, funk and hip-hop scene of Madrid, drummer composer Joe Sturges and guitarist Lucas De Mulder started creating and exploring together in early 2020, creating some minimalist and groove driven tracks after working together in a variety of projects and realizing that their individual influences could bring something exciting and fresh to the table as a power duo project. With clear funk, ambient and contemporary jazz influences, and hints of hip-hop, classical music and neo-soul, Joe Sturges & Lucas De Mulder create atmospheric landscapes full of backbeat grooves, drone guitars and constantly shifting melodic effects.
