After nearly 10 years of composing and playing guitar and keyboards for the band Lotus, Luke Miller turns his experience and musical skills toward the DJ booth. The idea was to bring funk and disco back to the dance floor in an EDM world that sounds more and more digitized. In the Fall of 2012, Luke started working on remixing and re-editing tracks, and by the end of December, Luke the Knife was born.

Lotus is offering a free download of “Malabarista,” a b-side from the recently released album Build. The track is built around a six-bar guitar melody that evokes an expansive, bleak desert landscape. The dual guitars release into a sub-bass workout with xylophone, synths and drums forming a dense percussive foundation. Drawing influence from spaghetti western soundtracks and krautrock, “Malabarista”combines a variety of instruments and sounds to create a unique entry in the Lotus catalog.
Fayetteville, Arkansas has seen a lot of different bands in the past few years. Its electronic scene is growing, as well as its jam scene. And really, all of its music is growing. So it’s no surprise George’s Majestic Lounge chose a band like Lotus to play at their venue. The band has played at this venue several times, but never on the venue’s new, much larger stage.

Three years ago, my grandma was diagnosed with cancer, fighting through the chemo with a smile on her face and light in her heart. Through her, the story and the power of the Lotus flower began to show itself to me. Deep beneath the dark, the Lotus begins its struggle. Beckoning towards the surface of the glassy pond, Lotus does not stop until the sunshine meets her.
