When The 405 spoke with 23-year-old producer Luka back in July, he gifted us a veritably eclectic mix (as part of out "Plastic Platform" series) while he traveled across Europe, curating sounds inspired by the varying elements he personally experienced. And for his newest work, he again tabs his surroundings, creating the lush and smooth 'Shimmer' featuring singer Laura Darlington.

"'Shimmer' is very L.A. influenced," he mentions in an email with The FADER. "I tried to catch the vibe that makes the city so special. As in all my songs there’s no story, it’s just a feeling, a certain vibe. I had this instrumental finished quite some time ago and I’ve always loved Laura’s voice, especially on the tunes she did with Flying Lotus. I got in contact with her and we did this track [by] sending back and forth and finished it the end of last year."
