Growing up in the center of the Netherlands, dj/producer Lavardi fell in love with house music very early. At the age of 8 he got infected by his half brother who was a house dj back then. While he was jumping on the couch for a few years, he was realizing what he could do to turn house music to his own hand. He bought some turntables, played music and started producing his own tracks. From his 17th Lavardi had many gigs in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. In the year 2011 he collected all his experience and took it with him into the studio. What to do now? Create tech house music on his own label with very talented producers and make it big and well known. Now, in 2012 the label Groove Department found his heartbeat and pumps quality tech house only. With the first release, called 'Mountain Dew' he hits the Dutch charts and the track touched the number one spot for many days. 'Mountain Dew' got supported by very popular radio shows like 538 Dance Department and Slam!FM Clubbin. Lavardi collaborates with good friends like Jochem Hamerling and Daniel Gonzales. Many good things will show up, keep an eye on them.
