Lukas Lyrestam channels 90s rave on ‘The Churn’ via Skint

Share

Newly signed to iconic Brighton label Skint Records, Swedish DJ / producer Lukas Lyrestam delivers a heady dose of 90s rave culture on the new track ‘The Churn’ out now.

Lukas says: “It’s a record of two-halves – The Churn a bastard love-child of 90s rave and jangly guitars, while Fire That Burns tackles the concept of raw electronic-pop. Recorded between Berlin, Los Angeles and Stockholm it’s contemporary dance music that I created while falling in & out of love last year.”

Merging the worlds of 80s pop and contemporary deep house, Lukas Lyrestam bridges the emotional worlds of electronic music with straight retro-rollers. With releases on legendary labels like Skylax Records, Common Labour and many more plus props from legends of the scene like Gerd Janson, Todd Edwards, Mano Le Tough, Soul Clap and more keep an eye on this one as he rolls out a swashbuckling live show filled with guitars and vocal acrobatics.

Born in Sweden but raised in London this grafter of deep-house has run a vinyl-only record label for the last five years as well as events in bookings at legendary institutions like Ministry of Sound and EGG. Having DJ’d internationally for the last 5 years as well as thrown his own fair share of illegal underground parties on the continent this young man’s dance-floor instincts are very well-honed.

This unique collage of house, electronica and retro vibes was supported across the board by a huge variety of DJs and publications like HERCULES and Love Affair, Surgeon, DJ Deep, Luke Slater, Red Axes, Jennifer Cardini, Sandrien, Ivan Smagghe, Dublab, Redlight Radio, NTS, Mixmag and Pitchfork. The future’s looking bright for Lukas as the vanguard of electronic music stamps their seal of approval.

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
