“My livelihood is making music that I can perform, whether I’m doing orchestral production or modular strangeness or generating club music. I don’t restrict myself. I defined myself by being who I am. The ultimate self respect is when you say you’re going to do something and you go and do it to the best of your ability.” [CARL CRAIG]
[REMOTE AREA / SOWESO]
Amsterdam-based DJ and producer, Lauhaus (Laurens Lanting), is one of the twosome inspirations of ’POLDER’, together with David Labeij. Active in the Dutch electronic music scene for over ten years now, he is also part of six-sided crazy communal laptop collective ’Amsterdam 611’ and most recently, the label manager of the brand new imprint ’SOWESO’ with Kabale Und Liebe.His sound is broad: productions made with a blend of house and techno, always striving for the clash between the genres to produce an exhilarating sound with an analogous feel. His DJ style and sound is not to go unnoted.
An all encompassing journey from deep, housy, tribal grooves to techy climaxes... always in tune with the crowd and the vibe!
