Meet Age of L.U.N.A — Hotly-tipped London hip hop group Age of L.U.N.A. stepped into Huck’s HQ and dropped knowledge beyond their years.

Names like Jean-Michel Basquiat and Thelonious Monk filled the air when Age of L.U.N.A stepped into Huck’s HQ to chat about influences.

With an average age of just 18, the London hip hop group have wisdom beyond their years – and a mature sound to match.

They carry themselves like veterans, but producer NK-OK is only 16 and the group have had just two releases so far.

After their first record ‘Indigo’ was picked up by Gilles Peterson and DJ Semtex, they’re already getting name-checked by some big people – to match their big name influences.
