For over a decade now Dr. Lektroluv has been tending to the health of Belgium's electronic music scene, the mysterious green masked DJ's own label introducing the likes of Mumbai Science and The Subs to the world whilst his early '00s compilations were pivotal in the global revival and continued evolution of the Electro sound.
Whilst he may be first and foremost a DJ, driven by a passion for unearthing new music and introducing it to tens of thousands around the world the good doctor also has the deft touch of a surgeon in the studio. Now following on from last year's hit 'Discotheque' he returns with 'Through The Night', a throbbing mix of Electroclash attitude, Italo Disco style and Techno muscle that supercharges the sound of artists like ADULT. and Legowelt.
Like a fevered neon lit dream 'Through The Night' perfectly captures the rush and ultra-vivid un-reality of a peak time dance-floor, and the accompanying video created by acclaimed Dutch projection art studio Mr. Beam brings the track to life in spectacular fashion.
Remixes come from Cologne's Sharam Jey, who injects the track with a silky Disco sheen and an irresistible bass line, and Hamburg producer Etnik who goes all in with a relentlessly pummeling mix, perfect for smoke filled, strobe lit warehouses.
Completing the EP we have another original track, 'Belgiant', a stripped back Techno affair that pays homage to Belgium's just celebrated hardcore past with it's tortured synths, hypnotic riffs and pile-driving beats. The Dr. is back and will be making House calls at a club near you soon...
