Laidback Luke is ready to release his long-awaited single "Speak Up", this time teaming up with NYC vocalist Wynter Gordon who gives the track chart topping credentials.
Already well known for a multitude of collaborations with various big names including David Guetta, Diplo and A-Trak, Laidback Luke more recently hooked up with Sander van Doorn on the stellar track Whos Wearing The Cap, a mash up of trance, progressive and electro. Luke's latest collaboration with Arno Cost and Norman Doray "Trilogy" went successful on charts in no time. 2011 also saw Luke enjoying chart success on UK Top 40 hit, Natural Disaster with Example, as well as his work with Steve Aoki and the master of crunk Lil Jon on Turbulence that took over Radio 1 airwaves.
Never one to shy away from an edgier sound, Laidback Luke injects a high dose of energy to Speak Up with a stomping build-up throughout the first half of the track that leads to a softer, suspenseful melody, supported by Wynter Gordons vocals. Luke then goes full steam ahead and launches into another intense, aggressive build up to see the track through to the end. The perfect recipe for a chart crossover club anthem!
In addition to working with fellow stalwarts of the electronic music industry, Luke has also remixed stellar pop acts from Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, MSTRKRFT ft. John Legend, Dizzee Rascal, Avicii and Moby to name a few. Its not just producing music that has keeps Luke busy. With his very own Super You&Me tent at Creamfields and a residency at Cream Ibiza last summer where he hosted the Mixmag Terrace on six dates, we can only wonder when he ever has any time to be Laidback..!
The Speak Up package includes remixes from Chris Lake, Mark Knight, Oliver Twizt, Moska and Das Kapital who all put their own unique stamp on the track.
