Toronto-based Lucky Variety is an inter-genre musical project by DJ-producer TLO and singer-songwriter Estyr, mixing neo-soul and alt-RnB into a fresh sonic salad. TLO is a champion turntablist, Juno Award-winning producer, and official tour DJ for Shad. Estyr is a solo artist and co-founder of chamber pop band Tiger Balme. 'Status Anxiety' released November 2023 followed by more singles and a debut album. The project incorporates TLO’s beat-making and production skills with Estyr’s ethereal vocals and lyrics, drawing on influences such as Little Dragon, Lianne La Havas, and Esthero. The album explores themes of disconnection, loneliness, and community, emerging from two years of remote work and an another year of in-person collaboration in TLO’s Chinatown studio, fueled by Chinese BBQ and bubble tea.​​​​​​​
