Artist Interview: Laidback Luke Talks Techno, Playing at Audio

Our team here at Audio had the pleasure of hosting one of the most influential producers in the electronic music scene – none other than Laidback Luke – earlier this month for a Strictly Techno set. It was a stunning night of pure, sweet techno beats and a unique opportunity to see the internationally renowned artist explore the genre. We chatted with Luke after his sold-out show on his techno roots, time behind the decks and what’s to come from him in the future.

Audio Artist Spotlight: Cristoph and Hannah Wants

We’re back again with two house music heavy-hitters taking over Audio this weekend. Up-and-coming progressive house producer Cristoph hits the club tomorrow night and Hannah Wants returns to the decks on Saturday, April 14th.

These two artists never fail to impress – listen to their sounds below!

Friday, April 13: Cristoph

Cristoph may be a newer name to the game, but that hasn’t stopped him from making a massive name for himself. The Newcastle-hailing artist grew up with a musical background as both his dad and brother were deeply immersed in the industry and has since become backed by none other than Eric Prydz. He has releases on major imprints like Hot Since 82, Bedrock and Last Night on Earth, and has had the massive honor of being the first artist to join Prydz’s new imprint, Pryda Presents.

Grab tickets and details for tomorrow night here.

Saturday, April 14: Hannah Wants

Hannah Wants is an Audio mainstay and an amazing presence that brings fresh energy to our booth every time she performs. With roots in UK garage and no fear in exploring across genres, her bass-laden, house-heavy sound is perhaps one of the most fun-inducing, stunningly mesmerizing sets to watch live.

You can find more details and tickets right here.

“Eighty Six” is a part of Toolroom Records’ “Toolroom 15” compilation, featuring an array of tracks that celebrate the imprint’s fifteenth anniversary as “one of Dance Music’s most recognisable and truly international independent labels.” The bundle will feature an entirely exclusive list of 70 tracks of house, tech house and techno showcasing what Toolroom has become so well-known for.
