Laidback Luke recently sat down with Magnetic Magazine to chat about some new things in his life and work stuff. He will be taking over 2 nights in November at Girls + Boys (11/14) and brite nites (11/15).
At Electric Zoo in New York City last month, I was particularly excited to hear what Laidback Luke would play in his set at Main Stage East. Hearing some of his recent Mixmash Radio podcasts, I noticed a shift away from full big room house mixes to an experimentation with dropping deep house and what Luke referred to as “future house” tracks, which as he practices it, is deep house music with heavier kicks, basslines and muted electro synths. The big room percussive buildups are sometimes still present, but the main drop is significantly toned down.
Laidback Luke fulfilled my expectations, playing future/funky house, like Chocolate Puma’s remix of GotSome’s “Bassline,” for nearly the first half of his set, before launching back into the progressive and electro tracks that most fans know him for, including Luke’s remix of Wynter Gordon’s “Dirty Talk.”
