LAIDBACK LUKE RELEASES FIRST STUDIO ALBUM IN 13 YEARS: FOCUS
Available November 6th on Mixmash Records!
“If you focus, you can hear the true love in there. It’s that freedom, that variation that keeps me falling in love with producing every single day”. – Laidback Luke
From releasing massive hits like “Turbulence”, “Natural Disaster”, “Leave the World Behind”, and ”Show Me Love”, contributing to the breakthrough of many current A-list DJs, and managing his own label – Mixmash Records – the legendary Filipino-Dutch veteran, Lucas van Scheppingen has rightfully earned his highly-acclaimed stage name of Laidback Luke. In fact, he has been a favorable name in the dance music circuit since the late ‘90s. To add to this list of accomplishments, Luke has now released his third studio album, FOCUS, on Mixmash Records. It’s been 13 years since he has released an album…his last being Electronic Satisfaction in 2002.
And it was worth the wait. FOCUS stands for everything that Luke represents: diversity, quality, and craftsmanship. It reflects the different generations of Luke’s music from his signature techno and house sounds in the 1990s, his Dutch house sound in the 2000s, and his more recent high-energy EDM sound. The album is composed of 16 tracks and features collaborations with the likes of Benny Benassi, Yellow Claw, Trevor Guthrie, GTA, and D.O.D. Luke’s collaboration with Trevor Guthrie entitled “Let It Go” was released on October 12th and premiered via Shazam. It has already amassed close to 850,000 plays. You can expect the full album to be just as successful. FOCUS will fulfill every emotion so be prepared to listen to it in any setting!
