Hackney artist Careless has teamed up with Newham based DJ L-LULO to deliver deep new two-tracked EP, title “Hocus Pocus.”

The project centres on their childhoods in East London; opening with ‘Motions’ a track anchored by a nuanced and dark production that allows Careless’ bars to flow freely as he shares tales about his youth.

Transitioning into the title track ‘Hocus Pocus’, a nocturnal offering that incorporates elements of UK garage — courtesy of DJ LULO, who creates the perfect foundation for the rapper to delve deeper into more personal parts of his formative years.

Although the tracks explore somber subjects, Careless’ makes sure to wow us with his lyrical prowess; by playing with words, metaphors and rhyming schemes. Allowing listeners to grasp the full extent of his creativity, playfulness and complexity as an artist.
