Laidback Luke (born Luke van Scheppingen, 22 October 1976 in Manila, Philippines) is a Dutch DJ and producer.
Laidback Luke grew up in The Netherlands and made his name as a graffiti artist before turning to making music. He has worked with artists such as David Guetta, Steve Angello, Sebastian Ingrosso and Junior Sanchez and played throughout Europe and North America as well as shows in Japan and Ibiza. He has released two studio albums: Psyched Up (1998) and Electronic Satisfaction (2002) as well as a successful mix album, Windmill Skill (2003). In 2003, van Scheppingen did a remix of the Daft Punk song "Crescendolls" for the duo's poorly-received remix album Daft Club. Luke has also released his own mix album, titled Ibiza Closing Party, as a free covermount CD in the October 2008 issue of Mixmag.
Lee Mortimer is fast becoming the hottest DJ of the moment with his unique take on bass-fuelled house music.
Some call it fidget house, a label which accurately describes this heavy sound but as Lee is keen to point out ‘anything sleazy, electronic and above all else, BIG(!) will make it into my sets!’ These sets are getting bigger too with jaunts around the world playing clubs as far a field as Singapore (Club Zirca) and Australia (HQ/Revolver) where he will soon be an underground superstar. He also played most of the UK festivals last year with a storming turn at Bestival which had the crowd going mental in the middle of the day!
As well as his sterling efforts on the wheels of steel he has also made a name for himself as a producer par excellence with tracks signed to Fool’s Gold, Dubsided, CR2 and Made to Play. He’s also provided remixes for bands such as Franz Ferdinand, The Futureheads and Bombay Bicycle Club to name but a few. He has also re-jigged tunes by Foamo, DJ Zinc, Dave Spoon & Pete Tong to spine tingling effect. Many of these mixes have also appeared on compilations by Claude Von Stroke, Plump DJs and Kissy Sell Out.
