Share

Embracing a triumphant return to the illustrious Drumcode realm, emerging Dutch artist LAAT unveils ‘The Age of Juno,’ a sonic voyage that solidifies his growing presence in the techno landscape. With this newest release on A-Sides 12, the spotlight shines brightly on LAAT, marking a pivotal moment in his musical journey and paving the way for an exciting chapter in his sound.

Notably, Drumcode’s head honcho, Adam Beyer, has championed ‘The Age of Juno’ this season across the globe. From the iconic stages of Tomorrowland, Awakenings and Ultra, LAAT’s latest creation has resonated with ravers far and wide.

Get ready to embark on a journey into the heart of techno with LAAT at the helm, steering us through ‘The Age of Juno’ and beyond.

Today, he joins the NUDE Techno podcast, with an hour of Techno. Listen to it below on SoundCloud & Mixcloud. If you are feeling this series, then please consider supporting it on Mixcloud Select.

Tell us a bit about this mix?
It’s a 60-minute techno journey, showcasing my newest single, a lot of unreleased tracks from myself, some other killers from the A-Sides compilation and some unknown gems that I think will definitly surprise you.

What’s your personal favourite track on it?
The closing track in the mix is a remix I made of Mark Reeves’ Far Away. I’ve always loved that record when it came out a couple of years ago, so I decided to update it, to fit my sets better. I love closing with this one. The crowd always goes for it when the chords come in.

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
My special ingredient is that I’ve included quite some young guns, who are really talented and really hungry. Names such as Kos:mo, Melvin Spix and Nico Cabeza. All names you should definitely keep an eye on. It’s hard to make noise in this scene, and I think these three definitely deserve some spotlight.

Tell us about your latest release?
My newest release is called The Age of Juno and it’s out now on Drumcode. It’s part of the infamous A-Sides compilation. This compilation really showcases nicely were techno currently resides. It has some melodic things in there, some rawer things…You can all play them blindly, I love them all. The Age of Juno has been received very well and Adam Beyer has been hammering it everywhere this summer: Awakenings, Tomorrowland, Ultra…you name it. I’m really happy he picked it for this VA and super grateful for his support.

What have you got coming up?
Coming up, is a promo tour to push The Age of Juno. I’ve got some gigs in Germany and the Netherlands, so I hope to see you there. Furthermore I’m working on a couple really nice collabs and of course a lot of demos to deliver in 2024. So keep an eye out. I really look forward to sharing the collabs I’ve finished. I’ve never heard anything like this before.

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Thanks for listening to my music! I wish you all a very nice Christmas and a happy new year!
