Blog #352, LAIDBACK LUKE

WARDEN TRACKS:  The cut I’m featuring today was released last Summer, but over the past few months it’s really worked its way into my current run of “most listened to” songs.  It’s from a Dutch/Filipino DJ & Producer who’s been ranked among the World’s Top 100 consistently over the past decade.  He’s known for collaborating with a ton of other singers & musicians, and is constantly releasing new music.  The most recent full-length album from this monster of EDM is called “Focus,” and is available across all the platforms.  I’ve been referring to LAIDBACK LUKE, and this weekend’s track always makes me hit repeat whenever I play it.  Laidback Luke hooks up with CHOCOLATE PUMA on this groove which starts with an old-school (almost suspenseful) intro leading to a big fat steady beat with a sick synth hook throughout.  It’s pure musical bliss in a short, sweet, sonically pleasing package – so good it’ll give you whiplash – and it’s appropriately titled “SNAP THAT NECK!”
