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!



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 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!

From: Germany

Style: Gritty big room house w/ melodic texture

Famous Tracks: AGORa, Marsch Marsch, Silence (Niels van Gogh vs. Thomas Gold Remix), all the hot sh*t you hear Steve Angello play that you wish you knew the name of

Best Known For: Breakthrough DJ of the 2010 – Axwell

Named breakthrough DJ of the year by Axwell in the most recent DJ Mag Top 100 poll, Gold is one of the lucky few to be championed by Ax and his fellow Swedish House Mafia Dons. If you take a listen to Gold’s music, you’ll realize you know many of his tracks. All the big dogs spin them, and now we’ve got Gold himself in DC to drop some big room melodic bombs with grit all over Lima Lounge!



The changing pace at which Thomas Gold’s year has taken shape has been literally breathtaking for the Berlin based artist. Not surprising then that Thomas was quickly snapped up by mammoth recording imprint Toolroom Records, who invited him to join their thoroughbred team of talent; as both a recording artist and resident DJ for their infamous ‘Toolroom Knights’ events alongside the likes of Fedde le Grand and Mark Knight. This strong start hasn’t gone unnoticed on the dancefloor either. 24 months on from breaking through into the international spotlight Thomas has nestled himself into the CD wallets of such luminaries as Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Tiësto, David Guetta, Chuckie, John Dahlbäck and Sander van Doorn, whilst discovering equal support at club level by regularly chalking headlining slots at prestigious venues like Pacha, Privilege and Ministry of Sound.

His year has continued to prevail with similar successes as recent productions like his smash EP ‘Work That / Kananga’ on Toolroom led the download charts for a handful of weeks, before being followed by his collaboration with house supremo Fatboy Slim. Titled ‘Star 69’, the track rapidly ascended the Beatport progressive house chart to claim the #4 spot. His next release saw him teaming up with Italy’s Alex Kenji and resulted in ‘What’s Up’, which released through the legendary Spinnin’ records went onto pick up genre crossing support from the likes of Marco V, Bingo Players, Riley & Durrant, Tocadisco and Robbie Rivera.

Recent months have seen Thomas leading a sleepless existence through a busy production schedule and gruelling tour diary that so far has taken in Brazil, Mexico, Argentina, Japan, India, Dubai, Russia, Canada, America and a host of destinations across Europe. This purple patch in his career has seen some of Thomas’ biggest standout releases and projects come to the fore. Such has been the impression of his music of late that many of his recent productions have found themselves being snapped up by the artist labels of Swedish House Mafia’s Steve Angello (SIZE) and Axwell (Axtone). Australia’s leading house star Dirty South also signed Thomas’ new single ‘Areena’, a collaboration with David Tort and David Gausa, to his Phazing Recordings imprint. However, it is perhaps his third release on Toolroom Records that is causing the most stir among his fans. With a familiar cymbal and snare drum combination creating an hypnotic marching beat, ‘Marsch Marsch’ is an unusual yet arresting track that delivers with a killer piano melody – which explains the reason it has been one of the biggest tracks bubbling in his sets for the last few weeks.

On reflection all this recent success had to stem from somewhere and that point of origin was when Thomas was a curious 7 years old. Taught to play the electronic organ as a child, Thomas soon found interest in digital synthesizers and from here his passion soared. Aged 15 he purchased his first ever piece of studio equipment – a Yamaha DX-11 synthesizer – and has not looked back since.

In three short years Thomas Gold has built an impressive back catalogue. On top of a solo releases, his remix work has been so successful that today his credits read like the who’s who of the global dance scene with names such as David Guetta, Fergie feat. LMFAO, David Tort, Norman Doray, Erick Morillo and Paul van Dyk to his repertoire.

Soaring high with his music has led to further more successes with Beatport; who in 2009 nominated him in their ‘Best Progressive House artist’ category. He eventually went on to win the coveted award for ‘Best Progressive House Track’ for his remix of Delerium ‘Silence’.

The magic you hear in his productions is just as evident in his DJ sets. With a sound that is just at home in the big room environment of a festival or dance arena, as it is in the more personal surroundings of club lands grittier underground settings. It is little wonder then that Thomas’ diary is one that has already taken in many of the world’s best venues such from Mansion and Cameo Miami to Space and current World #1 club Sankeys in Manchester, whilst touring has seen him circumnavigated the planet with rousing appearances throughout Asia, Australia, Europe, Middle East and North and South America.

Thomas Gold is definitely THE name to look out for in 2011!

Famous Tracks: This could take a while… A&B – Alone Tonight, Can’t Sleep, Lonely Girl, On A Good Day, No One On Earth, Miracle, Satellite, Home, Air for Life, Sirens of the Sea, we could do this all night | Jaytech – Pyramid, Milano, Solero, Pepes Garden

Best Known For: Above & Beyond – Being one of the most celebrated trance acts of the last decade. Their radio show, Trance Around the World | Jaytech – Leading the progressive sounds of A&B’s Anjunadeep label.

DJ Mag Rank: A&B – 5

We don’t need to sell Above & Beyond to you. You should already know their legacy. Their self-proclaimed ‘trance in your pants’ style is full of melodic, uplifting, euphoric trance with vocals that fans across the world belt out each and every day. Every track they make becomes a top club hit. Their Anjuna label family is a leader in dance music.

Under the Anjunabeats label exists Anjunadeep, whose focus is on the progressive side of dance music. At the top of the Anjunadeep roster sits Jaytech, whose tracks have been played by everyone across all genres of EDM, from Armin van Buuren to Sasha and even Desyn Masiello! There’s nothing we love more than when the top DJs in the world bring more top DJs with them!



Above & Beyond


In a world awash with carbon copy producers, 25-year-old James Cayzer aka Jaytech is a bright exception. Classically trained as a pianist and a perfectionist when it comes to programming, his unique blends of deep melodies and sunny electronic grooves are equally at home in the DJ sets of Sasha or Desyn Masiello as they are in the stadium headlining appearances of Above & Beyond.

Despite his relative youth, Jaytech’s prodigious creativity and prolific work rate (he started producing at just 14 and released his first track at 16) have seen him rise up as the most consistent artist on the popular Anjunadeep imprint — even releasing the label’s first full artist album through 2008’s ‘Everything Is Ok’ (“Lush, melodic and soaked in electronic groove – a crossover gem” **** -DJ Magazine), and hitting number one in the iTunes dance chart with his Anjunadeep 02 mix compilation in 2010. (“Compilation of the month **** -Mixmag.)

Cementing his position as one of the leading lights within deep, uplifting electronic music, Jaytech’s monthly mix show ‘Jaytech Music’ now airs on radio stations across the globe and is downloaded by thousands as a monthly podcast. A window into his sound, it’s also the best place to hear Jaytech’s upcoming personal productions before anyone else.

Long chosen as the warm-up DJ of choice for Above & Beyond, Jaytech is now taking off as a headline DJ in his own right. Chosen to headline the Anjunadeep room for the label’s flagship party at the Miami WMC, he remains the number one headline DJ within the core Anjunadeep family.

February 2011 sees the release of Jaytech’s most promising mix work to date. Anjunadeep 03 is the latest annual label collection and features 29 largely unreleased tracks that range from deep, dark and hypnotic techno sounds to upbeat, uplifting electronic house grooves.

Proof of his rising stock behind the turntables, a packed DJ diary has recently taken in dates at Ibiza’s Amnesia, London’s Brixton Academy and Japan’s world-famous Womb. In the past year he has also traveled the vast corners of his Australian homeland with the Future Music Festival and taken his uplifting and perfectly paced sound on tour in America — more recently with Above & Beyond for their TATW350 event in Los Angeles, where his set was broadcast live across the globe to a listen-in audience of 30 million.

Often uplifting but never obvious, Jaytech is a force on an unstoppable rise right now. And his journey is only just beginning.
