For those that may not know Luke began his career far away from the main stage. A leading house/techno producer, Laidback Luke earned his techno credentials playing alongside contemporaries Adam Beyer, Marco Carola, and UMEK, regularly gracing the same lineups. Support from Marco Bailey and Joachim Garraud saw him join the billing for I Love Techno and Techno Parade (respectively), with the esteemed producer also gracing the roster for Billy Nasty’s Theremin Agency as well as being made an Awakenings resident. The last couple of years has seen Luke revisit his roots, playing a number of ‘Strictly Techno’ gigs and releasing a selection of music that garnered the support of Ryan Elliot, Gerd Jansen, Ricard Villalobos and Zip. Now, with the unveiling of his new Dark Chanell moniker, Luke is making a much-anticipated return to the techno realm.
