From ArtistPR:

Luka's Ocean of Hip Hop


From the chilled and damp deck of a lobster boat to the bright lights and heat of the stage, Maine’s Luka is flexing his skills and imagination through the power of hip hop. After teaming up with his childhood friend and producer, Jboss, this fresh rap sensation began formulating diabolical rhymes coupled with infectious beats to generate a unique, intoxicating sound. Hot off the release of his debut record, Style Points, Luka is compiling material, inking verses, and spreading his music from coast to coast.

Growing up in Maine, Luka was the youngest of six kids raised by a single mother, and began working as a lobsterman at the ripe age of 12. As the hours on the ocean slowly grew into days, Luka was inspired to compose lyrics, which eventually blossomed into the silky smooth hip hop verses he pens today. Isolated by the sea, his mind is free to roam and unlock the words which fit perfectly with each thumping beat composed by his producer, Jboss. After getting his feet wet in the recording studio with fellow Maine rapper, Kid Wicked, the trio became known as The Foreside, and launched Luka headfirst into a world drenched in hip hop.

As a lobsterman by day and rap mogul by night, the burgeoning artist is beginning to perform from state to state, eventually making the trek from his home state all the way to the sunny hills of California. Luka is also working towards a number of international shows in Central America, where he retreats from Maine’s icy winter to surf and relax. With Style Points picking up momentum and more releases loaded into the chamber, this is just the tip of the iceberg for his budding music career.

Drawing influences from Rick Ross, Notorious BIG, and DJ Quik, Luka mixes the East and West coasts to create his own deep, edgy flow which radiates from Style Points. Featuring 13 tracks of searing hot verses and floor shaking beats, the record will leave his indelible footprint on the industry as he continues to soar skyward. “I’m Feelin’ You” is one of the first singles to be recognized, and will be featured in the film Clinton Road, which is currently in the production phase.

The popular Coast 2 Coast mixtapes have also recognized his potential, as he will have tracks featured on Volume 155 (hosted by Bobby Valentino) and 156 (hosted by Jeremiah). Also, keep your eyes peeled for Luka’s upcoming self-released mixtapes, which are currently underway. More information, streaming audio, photos and more are available on his official MySpace and ReverbNation pages. Style Points is available from iTunes now.
