For next Tuesday’s Tales of the Interstitial on PsyMusic Radio, I’ll be joined in the studio by rising psybreaks superstar LuQas.
LuQas is Luke Trott from Brighton England. Born and raised in Bristol, he’s been into dance music since around 2000, where friends and family supplied him a constant feed of prog-house mix tapes. By chance he purchased an early Y3K album after spotting a Sasha track and has been into breaks ever since. Not satisfied with being a punter, he bought his first decks in 2001, promoted a successful Brighton breaks night in 2004 and now is rapidly finding his niche as a producer of deep techy noises.
He draws influences from many different genres, particularly psy-trance and techno, and his varied DJ sets reflect this. Now a resident at the awesome night Slackers Convention, he plays regularly to a loyal crazy crowd of Brighton revellers. You can also catch him on NSB Radio every Saturday night where he fronts the Slackers show alongside Pav and Toxic Shock. With tracks signed to Dead Famous, Yellowfinger Communications, Hardplace Records and Future Perfect, LuQas is starting to gain recognition internationally, with forthcoming gigs in Croatia and Prague.
Luke will be bringing along a sackload of full-on psybreaks, and yours truly will be keeping it interstitial with the finest fizzling 4/4s on the flip. Whatever that means.
In the words of my guest: “Rah!!!!!!” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
