    [By The Wavs Exclusive] 8 Questions With LCAW


    Guest

    LCAW

    Currently enjoying the successes of his most recent track “Staring At The Sun” featuring Sophie Hintze, we challenged LCAW to answer our 8 Questions this week…

    1) Who are three of your all-time favourite artists, past or present?

    Eminem, A Tribe Called Quest, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

    2) Is there a particular tune that you have never got sick of?

    A Tribe Called Quest – “Buggin’ Out”

    3) Describe your perfect day…

    A perfect day would need amazing food, great music and a warm summer night. I always wanted to rent out a house in the South of France for a couple of weeks to work on music, I’d imagine every day would be perfect then!

    4) What would people who know you well say about you in three words?

    Music, Food, Wine.

    5) Ideal studio layout…

    A lot of natural light, windows, grand piano and a bunch of gear. Doesn’t have to be a spaceship as long as I can jam on a piano.

    6) What is your most valued material possession?

    It isn’t really my possession but I still have to say my mom’s grand piano, I learnt to play music on that instrument and I still play on it as much as I can.

    7) Is there something musically you would like to do more of next year?

    I would love to make more music for the clubs and live performances next year.

    8) Where do you want to be in 10 years?

    I’d like to continue with my own artist project but also run my own label where I can help young talented artists to develop. I could also imagine doing film and theatre projects at some point in the future.

      Sydney’s global dance export, Go Freek, have just produced their catchiest tune to date. ‘Love Is The Weapon’, steps in an exciting new direction for the electronic heavyweights as they blend their signature offensive bass lines and tech-house percussion with a truly addictive topline. After spending quite some time in the U.S. smashing stages at the likes of EDC and Nocturnal Wonderland and playing European boat parties with artists such Detlef and Latmun, they’ve finally managed to find some time between drinks to get in the studio and deliver this sure hit, out today on Sweat It Out.
       
      "When you work on something long enough you become emotionally attached and your art becomes a part of you. In the case of ‘Love Is The Weapon’, it was in the works for over 8 months. It grew from an idea that was almost thrown away, and has now become our most unique and exciting record to date. I remember having a moment of hysterical laughter and tears when we wrapped up the final mixdown. My mum complained that after first listen she had an earworm for days to follow. We are so proud of this record." Go Freek.
       
      And proud as punch they should be after the career successes these boys have achieved over the years. With multiple ARIA Club Chart Top 10s, including their record breaking #1 collaboration with Dom Dolla on ‘Define’ and #2 on ‘Call Out’ and ‘Put It Down’ in 2016 and 2017 respectively. It comes as no surprise then that Go Freek have been given the nod of approval from some of the biggest names in dance, including Claude VonStroke, Camelphat, A-Trak, Don Diablo, Anna Lunoe, Claptone and most recently support from arguably the most popular DJ of 2018, FISHER, on their previous single, ‘Time’.
       
      With a 12 date national tour around the corner, there is no doubt ‘Love Is The Weapon’ will earworm it’s way into every aspect of your life. Be sure to send this one to your mum.
       
      ‘Love Is The Weapon’ is out now via Sweat It Out.

      Symbiotic is excited to announce that Australian & International favourite MaRLo as well as fellow Aussie Marcus Santoro, will be joining Showtek at their Melbourne show this November.

      MaRLo:

      Leaving a mark on charts, dance floors and music enthusiasts the world over, Dutch born / Aussie MaRLo backs up the #1 Best Trance DJ and #2 overall DJ in Australia with no justification required.  From Beatport #1’s, escaping the studio, to headlining some of the most sought after dance events in the world, MaRLo is influencing trance, tech trance and progressive house music like no other.  With a solid European beginning, now Australian residing MaRLo took inspiration from pioneers Mauro Picotto, Aphex Twin, Ferry Corsten and The Prodigy where the studio came before the shows and a live act was how he ignited.  Driving an incredible talent in the studio, he has risen to striking heights claiming top chart spots.  Signed to Armin van Buuren’s ‘Armada Music A State of Trance Recordings’ proudly boast releases that have taken the world by storm, with Armin personally noting that MaRLo knows how to program the best lead sounds.

      Marcus Santoro:

      Having already picked up more than a dozen plays and invited as a guest mixer on Above & Beyond’s ‘Group Therapy’ radio show including the coveted ‘Push The Button’ feature, Melbourne’s Marcus Santoro proves why he is becoming known as one of the fastest rising artists in today’s Australian dance music scene.  Full of delicate, building chords, soothing atmospherics and an undeniable groove, he has truly laid the down the law on musical enthusiasts and their playlists globally.

      Unstoppable, the Santoro profile has been tapped by Swedish House Mafia maestro's Axwell /\ Ingrosso with releases on: Axtone, Armada, Revealed, Sony Music, Enhanced and most recently, gaining the attention of Armin van Buuren on his highly respected ‘A State Of Trance’ radio show, where his studio aptitude is imprinting itself on airwaves globally.

      Showtek:

      Dutch duo, Showtek, in conjunction with Symbiotic, have announced an exclusive Australian show for one night only, in which they will be showcasing a musical spectrum from their early years until today.

       Flirting with the Hardstyle sound with performances at Defqon.1 and Knockout Circuz, fans will be treated with two special sets from Showtek exhibiting their current sound, as well their hardstyle sound, with classic hits such as ‘FTS’ and ‘Expansion.’

      "We are so excited for this show.  We love our Australian Fans, who have been supporting us from the beginning.  So, to all the Showtek fans around Australia, come check us out and experience a night for the books.  We will be playing the full spectrum of the Showtek sound, from FTS to BOOYAH, to our newest upcoming singles.  We can’t wait" - SHOWTEK

      With more than 15 years under their belts, Showtek continue to develop their musical evolution and transform their diverse styles.  With crowd favourites such as: ‘Cannonball’ and ‘Booyah’ creating international attention and ‘Bad’ having dominated international charts and going platinum in Australia, it resulted in countless new fans across the globe.

      Today, Showtek is recognized as undisputed leaders within the electronic dance music genre.  This night will complement the entire spectrum of the Showtek sound.

      Artist Name: Lifestream 
      Label: Nil
       
      Tell us about yourself
      Solar-powered house enthusiast passionate about bringing underground and emotive sounds to scene. 

      What genre/styles do you play?
      House/Tech House/Techno 
       
      Your specific genre of music?
      Tech House 
       
      Where are you from?
      Toowoomba 
       
      Where are you now?
      Brisbane 
       

      What got you into the scene/dj’ing/producing?
      I really fell in love with the house/deep house sound when I first started hearing it out in clubs around 2012 and just began clubbing regularly since that time. I remember purchasing a dj controller online and playing around with it in my bedroom several years ago now. Ever sicne that time my interest in DJing began. I eventually downloaded Ableton and did a little bit of producing at home but nothing too serious. Things really began to take form when I entered the YOURSHOT international DJ competition in 2017 and placed as runner up on my stage. Shortly after the competition I had my first club set at one of the biggest clubs in Brisbane “The Met” and supported Bag Raiders amongst other international artists. 

      Who has influenced you musically? 
      After attending the infamous nightclub Revolver in Melbourne it really influenced and changed the direction of my sound. I have had a massive influence from many Melbourne DJ’s including Brian Fantana, Boogs, Spacey Space and Jordan Brando to name a few. 

      What are you currently working on?
      Was very happy to put out my debut single “I Gotta Know” last month which had a fantastic response. I am currently working on several projects which will be seeing the light of day very soon. 

      What can we expect in the future from Lifestream?
      Strive to provide listeners with the best experience possible by creating memorable sets, tunes and moments. 
       
      Who have you enjoyed working with/hated the most?
      I have had the pleasure with working with the guys at Frisson Records/Eden. They put on absolutely fantastic events and I have been able to play at their last 2 label parties in Brisbane which have both blown away my expectations. 
       

       
      What’s your day job?
      I work on the clinical team at headspace (National Youth Mental Health Foundation), primarily doing assessments, screening and case management. I’m also doing some Postgraduate studies which keeps me busy. 

      What do you listen to in your downtime? 
      I listen to such a variety of music in my spare time; a lot of metal, house, triple J amongst others. 

      What do you think of the Brisbane scene?
      I think the Brisbane House and Techno music scene has gone from strength to strength over the past 2 years. Venues like Capulet and events like Syndrome, Eden, Dragonfruit have all blown up in popularity over the past several months which has really shown the appetite for more underground house and techno sounds in the Brisbane music scene and how popular it is becoming. Very excited for the future of the Brisbane house and techno music scene.

      About Andrew Rayel:
       He's the modern-day Mozart -- today's leading talent in the ever-growing electronic dance music scene.  He's the pride of Moldova, known for his unique and very own sound.  He is Andrei Rata, better known as Andrew Rayel.
      Born on July 21st, 1992, his young age never stopped him from taking the lead amongst the next generation of EDM producers.  Developing strong musical skills, he studied orchestral music and kicked off his producing career at only 13 years of age.  It didn't take long for the passionate music lover to translate his ideas into sounds.  He created a truly unique sonic signature - one of piano power, harmonic balance, and euphoric tales.  And so, years later, his originals and remixes are praised by many and loved by more.  But, rest assured, the Andrew Rayel story has only just begun.
      "Trance was the perfect solution, as it is a combination of melody, harmony and energy, elements that I prefer the most," says Andrew Rayel.  Having Armin van Buuren supporting his tracks on the world famous ‘A State of Trance’ radio show had always been a dream of Andrew’s.  Sometimes, dreams come true.  His tracks: '550 Senta,' 'How Do I Know' ft. Jano, 'Aeon of Revenge,' 'Once in a Lifetime Love,' ' My Reflections,' 'Horizon,' 'I’ll Be There,' ‘Dark Warrior,’ ‘One in a Million’ and much more all made it to the show, often voted ‘Tune of the Week’ and ‘Future Favourite.’ The trance scene embraced Andrew's refreshing sound, giving him a very warm welcome.
      Andrew’s tracks found a solid home on the ‘A State of Trance’ and ‘Armind’ labels, both part of the Armada Music family.  With such impressive originals, it didn't take long until the Rayel sound became hot property for remixes.  Andrew was lucky enough to take on remix duties for tracks by: Armin van Buuren, Tiësto, W&W, Dash Berlin and many more. Earning the support of the DJ elite, the Rayel sound has spread all across the globe, from underground clubs to mainstream festivals.
      Although Andrew’s career is still in its early stages, Andrew has already DJ’d at the world's most legendary clubs and massive festivals. From Kazantip, Global Gathering, Creamfields, A State of Trance, Trancefusion, Transmission, Tomorrowland, Ultra Music Festival, Electric Daisy Carnivals, Ball En Blanc and much more.  Not to forget performing and selling out world-wide venues such as: New City Gas, Exchange LA, Marquee New York, Ruby Sky San Francisco, Zouk Kuala Lumpur & Singapore, Colosseum in Jakarta, not to forget the magical Island ‘Ibiza’ in which he has performed at clubs such as: Ushuaïa, Amnesia, & Privilege and more, as well as earning a Las Vegas Residency at the age of 21 at Marquee Las Vegas.
      As a result of his hard work and dedication, fans voted him to become one of the Top 100 DJs in the world, as well as breakout DJ & Producer and highest climber in the poll voting, alongside many world-wide nominations such as the IDMA (International Dance Music Awards) which is hosted yearly in Miami during Winter Music Conference week.
      2014 was the year that saw the first ever artist album from Andrew Rayel entitled: ‘Find Your Harmony’ which has taken the world by storm, alongside his sensational hit collaboration with Armin van Buuren: ‘EIFORYA.’ Andrew Rayel is now an artist that has released 2 artists albums on his home label ‘Armada Music.’ In 2014 ‘Find Your Harmony’ was released as the first ever artist album, followed up by ‘MOMENTS’ in 2017 and establishing his own record label under the Armada umbrella in 2018 with ‘inHarmony Music.’
      The road to success has just begun and Andrew Rayel is ready to take on the world in the years ahead. "I believe music is a universal language that unites people with nothing but love.  I intend to make sure that my tracks are all about emotions and happiness.  That's what's driving music, making the world a better place," says Andrew Rayel.
