Lil Jon’s return to the booth has been a long time coming. His DJ set at Ultrabar Nightclub in Washington DC was nuts. The Don Julio and Hennessy flowed like the Nile, the girls, well… you can watch the video. DC nightlife was out in full force and loved every minute of it!

In our official interview, we talked with Jon about what The Donald is really like, his son’s future in the music industry and more! We learned that Jon has held nearly every position in the business, from DJ and Artist to A&R, manager, and more! And once you hear him talk you’ll see, he’s one of the more intelligent personalities in the rap game.

Pop Nightlife at Ultrabar happens every Friday. It’s one of the biggest events on Fridays in DC. With 4 floors, 2 mezzanines, 6 bars, VIP and guest list options, it’s no wonder why artists like Chachi, Enferno and Scene continue to return! Check out the event line ups and come out on Saturday for Ladies Night!

Some raw footage of DC nightlife going bonkers at Club Glow at Fur Nightclub as David Guetta, who voted the DC party best venue of 2010, drops Alice Deejay – Better Off Alone (Laidback Luke Remix) and mixes it into Diddy – Dirty Money featuring Skylar Grey – Coming Home (Dirty South Remix).

The infamous Alice Deejay was a Dutch EDM group who made it big with their 1999 hit ‘Better off Alone.’ It reached #3 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart and #27 on the Billboard Hot 100. Rapper Wiz Khalifa sampled it in his 2008 single ‘Say Yeah’ which goes to show that… well, we’ll let you come to your conclusions.

If anyone could re-vive a hit like that it’s Laidback Luke!

P. Diddy’s foray into dance music was inevitable, although the pairing with Dirty South has been a nice surprise. The original was co-written and co-produced by Jay-Z. Dragan’s Coming Home remix has given the track credibility amongst fans of electronic music.

With David Guetta behind the decks at Club Glow Washington DC, dropping tracks by Luke and Dirty South to the DC nightlife audience only further strengthens dance music’s grasp on the casual club goer and American mainstream crowd.

DJ Mag Rank: 39

It’s Avicii. He’s back. The last time he was in DC, let’s see… there were beach balls flying around, people crowd surfing everywhere and lots and lots of jager. What more do we say, every track the guy makes is a 10. Every time he comes to DC the party is better than the last. We might as well just fill the club with sand, put up some nets and serve pina coladas. The love affair between Tim Bergling and DC nightlife continues.

Famous Tracks: Get Dumb, Break Down the House, Hey, Blau!, Show Me Love, Leave the World Behind, Till Tonight… every bootleg he’s made is pretty much the sh*t!

Best Known For: Doing a great robot, saluting the crowd, getting the party started.

DJ Mag Rank: 17

There’s an artist album lurking somewhere, and we’re a little angry with Luke for not releasing it yet! Then again, we can’t really complain. The things Laidback Luke is doing behind the decks are just mind bending. He has been able to blend nearly every genre of dance music into a strong flowing set. His crowd interaction is among the best, the beats bang, the energy is there, what more can we say?

Laidback Luke, at #17 in the world, may be one of the most underrated DJs out there!

 

Bio

In 2010 Dutch dynamo Laidback Luke is so supercharged and all over your body that it hurts. Blasting your bassbins with blockbuster beats, making your heads spin with his hybrid house styles, even cramping up your hands as you scroll down his discography! Recently, he’s worked with David Guetta, Diplo, A-Trak, Steve Aoki and Lil Jon, and remixed everyone from Black Eyed Peas to Calvin Harris and from Christina Aquilera to Moby. There have been three nominations for Luke in the Beatport Music Awards – and an International Dance Music Award (IDMA) gong in the Best House/Garage Track category for his work on ‘Leave The World Behind’. He’s sold out his own brand Super You&Me parties at Miami WMC. Plus, he’s invited to join Cream for some Super You&Me events at Amnesia in Ibiza. All this while kick-starting a compilation series, with Laidback Luke presents Super You&Me featuring Avicii, via his own label, Mixmash Records, and still finding time to give the next generation of music makers a leg-up through his forum, at www.laidbackluke.com. He’s got over 30,000 followers on Twitter, is sent 12GB+ of promos every week, and boards more than 160 flights per year – without breaking a sweat. Sure his name is Laidback, however when the music’s jumping he’s anything but…

Born in the Philippines, raised in the Netherlands, as a kid Luke loved guitars, graffiti, house and hip-hop, taking the ‘laid back’ tag from Snoop Dogg’s ‘Gin & Juice’. He had a mentor in Dobre (Chocolate Puma) and by 1996 was releasing tracks, remixing for established artists and DJing professionally. He even beat a Dutch DMC champ in battle. His first album came in 1999, and when Virgin locked down ‘Rocking With The Best’, then released his 2002 album, Electronic Satisfaction, his profile really soared. Following this he remixed the likes of Daft Punk, Murk, Oliver Lieb and Tom Stephan, introduced his own label, Mixmash, and went on to hook up with Steve Angello to remix ‘Sexy F**k’ and co-produce ‘Otherwize Then’. He also joined forces with the Swedish House Mafia on ‘Get Dumb’ and signed tracks to Angello’s Size, while ‘Rocking With The Best 2007′ blew up on Mixmash. Around this time his superhero-themed residency – Super You&Me – took off at Amsterdam club Paradiso. It was followed by another epic 12 months that saw Luke release five tracks and 18 remixes, ignite the Stealth Live! CD series with a near perfect club mix, host a weekly show on Radio FG, and perform almost 200 international DJ sets – including a BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix. It was also the year that witnessed him making a massive mark on Ibiza. After performing at all the top clubs, he produced/remixed every track on his Ibiza Closing Party mix for Mixmag and ended 2008 on another high: with ‘Show Me Love’ (by Luke and Steve Angello featuring Robin S), which entered both the Buzz and Cool Cuts Charts, and even reached # 11 in the UK’s official singles chart. Moving into 2009, his collaboration with the Swedish House Mafia on ‘Leave The World Behind’ became an Essential New Tune on Pete Tong’s Miami show and one of Beatport’s best-selling tracks. His Super You&Me party during WMC was also a huge hit, starring Diplo and A-Trak. Consequently Luke and Diplo produced ‘Hey’, which was supported by DJs like Kissy Sell Out on Radio 1. Of course, Luke’s remix skills continued to be in hot demand too, by, among others, David Guetta, Tiësto, Black Eyed Peas, Dizzee Rascal, Depeche Mode and MSTRKRFT. In fact, mash-ups like his remix of the Black Eyed Peas’ ‘I Got A Feeling’ with La Roux’s ‘In For The Kill’, his very own ‘My G*O*D* (My Guns On Demo)’ and Luke and Lee Mortimer’s ‘Blau!’ blitzed the globe from Australia to Ibiza, where he was nominated for best House DJ at the DJ Awards. As a result, he landed a #27 slot in DJ magazine’s Top 100 DJs Poll of 2009.

Performing and producing relentlessly and innovating musically as an artist like nobody else has propelled Luke and his superhuman fusion of hyperdrivehousestep&ghettojacktrancebass to stratospheric new heights over the last couple of years. In 2010, he’s already remixed Wynter Gordon’s ‘Dirty Talk’, as well as Ferry Corsten, Calvin Harris and Moby, and his own projects, like ‘Till Tonight’ feat. Jonathan Mendelsohn, and ‘Turbulence’ by Luke and Steve Aoki feat. Lil Jon, have gone global. So what more can the new decade bring for our r-evolutionary rebel? Well, with the crazy energy that he conveys and the martial arts that he practises, rest assured it will be out of this world. Yes, our fresh-faced superhero has good ‘kung fu’, always keeping an ear to the ground while his creativity rockets skyward. Luke, we salute you!
