Live recording of Dizzit at Dark Knights Terrace Party on the 31st of May 2013
Louk is proving his worth as one of the bright young talents of the scene, having achieved a fair amount of success in a rather short time, and being described as someone who 'plays like a maniac'. A man who hardly ever sleeps, this is demonstrated by his productions, gigs, promotion, reviews, and an all round dedication for the sinister blend of trance and techno that he has become famed for.
Despite hailing from England, he has a very distinct European sound and loves to play a mash up of Hard Trance and Techno in his sets, basing a love of these genres on a sound he heard at an illegal rave in 2002, at the age of 16, all wide eyed and dribbling. This has resulted in bookings at for events such as Q-Base (Airport Weeze), Two visits to Defqon 1 (Almere/Biddinghuizen), Nature One Festival (Germany), HTID (Sydney Olympic Showground), Damage Control (Canberra), Tunnel (Hamburg), Lexion (Holland), Slammin Vinyl, North Technology, Rectify, Hard Definition, Uprising, Overload, Global Meltdown, Bionic, Premonition and many more. He also regularly plays for Hostile (Newcastle), Atmosphere (Seaton), and Hindsight (Exeter) and held a residency for Eyecon @ Dance Academy in his hometown of Plymouth before it was closed down in 2006.
No stranger to the studio, he has a multitude of productions and remixes on many leading labels accross Europe with the likes of Druck, Naked Lunch, Detox, German Trance, Drizzly, Tidy, Audio Surgery, Joyride, Nukleuz, Hindsight, Friction, Excessive, Dataless, Trance NRG, Digitally Infected, V-Trax and numerous others all releasing his material. He also runs the succesful Compulzion and Benefactor imprints featuring some of the finest and darkest hard trance and techno you can lay your hands upon! With all this in mind you should definitely check him out!
