Luuk van Dijk debuts on Sidney Charles’s Heavy House Society label.


Sidney Charles’ Heavy House Society label continues in its rich vein of form with the new release from Amsterdam based artist, Luuk Van Dijk.

Having played sets at Paradise, Awakenings, elrow, and DGTL plus he has held a residency at Straf_Werk, whilst releasing on labels like Hot Creations, Solid Grooves, Do Not Sleep and his own Dark Side of The Sun. Van Dijk now drops his debut slick 3 track EP released on Charles’s Heavy House Society label. Amsterdam based DJ and producer Luuk van Dijk (’96) has started producing electronic music in 2011. Raised by an opera singer and a music teacher, it was inevitable that he would become a musician himself. Known for his groovy sound and prominent basslines, Luuk remains ever-evolving.

The title track of the EP, ‘Serious Danger’, kicks off the proceedings with its stripped and minimal groove. ‘Everything I Want’, is the second track on the EP. This is a smooth tech-house number. With its bouncing bassline, telephone call incidentals, and slick production this is a classy production.

The third and last track on the package is our premiere today, ‘What You Like’. It’s a solid house groover, old school vocal cuts, and an almost Todd Terry esq jacking beat give this track its identity.

You can grab the whole EP from here.

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.
