Laidback Luke returns to The Arches on Friday 8th November.
It’s that time of year again… Time to raise those Double L’s high at The Arches for the return of the one & only LAIDBACK LUKE! We are very pleased to be bringing Luke back for his annual Arches show for what promises to be another sell out show. Since his last event at The Arches, Luke has hosted the MAIN ARENA at COLOURSFEST 2013 with his Super You&Me brand and quite simply brought the house down. We know he picked up more than a few extra fans at that show, so if you’ve yet to experience the amazing skills of Laidback Luke at The Arches, then this is one show you need to be involved in! Support for this show has still to be announced, but if it’s anything like the last few shows (artists such as La Fuente & Oliver Twizt) then you know it’ll be someone worth getting in early for.
There is no denying that Dutch turbine Laidback Luke has truly established a name for himself. His dynamic fusion of hyper-drive-house-step & ghetto-jack-trance-bass is the sound of now and has been for the past decade – and there is no sign of it slowing down!
Born in the Philippines and raised in Holland, Luke van Scheppingen, aka Laidback Luke, without a doubt is the reference point of the dance scene for thousands of clubbers these days. Blasting your speakers with blockbuster beats, stirring things up with his hybrid house styles and his unlimited energy, brightly results in both stunning live sets and ongoing anticipated studio hits. The Dutch heavy weight house master is loved all over the globe: his Super You&Me events sell out wherever it goes to and he keeps being ranked in the Top echelon s of the (in)famousand by-all-means-wanted TOP 100 DJ lists.
His name is Laidback, however when the music’s blasted through speakers he is anything but relaxed!So what more can the new decade bring for our revolutionary rebel? Well, with the crazy energy that he conveys and the martial arts that he practices, rest assured it will be out of this world. Yes, our fresh-faced superhero has good ‘kung fu’, always keeping an ear to the ground while his creativity rockets skyward. Luke, we salute you!
See you all down the front!
