Designer turned virtual artist, Lakaeno projects ultra-modern perspectives through the black mirror of the digital world. Escapist themes thread the stories and moments of the music, relying on familiar tones of Hip-Hop, IDM, EDM and R&B.
Created in 2014 by the South Carolina-raised designer Leighton McDonald, Lakaeno started out as an experiment to blend multiple talents of sonic and visual expression, unlocking a new space on the digital frontier of Virtual Reality. The futuristic DIY aesthetic is a result of being a one-human band, maximizing the raw expression without much filter. Writing, production, mixing, engineer, art direction and marketing are all done in house.
