by March 13, 2017

We are happy to share with you this exclusive podcast by LOR.
‘LOR will be DJing at Corsica Studios in London on Saturday 25th March’ so if you’re around be sure not to miss this one!

LOR brings together elements of techno, electronica and house to create his individual sound. The Belfast producer announced his arrival at the start of 2016 with remixes of classics by Arthur Russell and Kraftwerk, which were supported by the likes of Âme, Gerd Janson, Bicep, John Talabot and many more. Roman Flügel featured LOR in his last Boiler Room set and LOR tracks were featured in BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes from both Roman Flugel and Dixon & Âme, raising yet more interest in an artist Data Transmission named ‘one of 2016’s ones to watch’.

LOR turned heads with his original productions, releasing on respected labels, NVH, Cin Cin (Fort Romeau and Ali Tillett’s influential imprint) and Berlin’s, Exit Strategy. Key support for his new material came from Dixon, Âme, Mano Le Tough, Roman Flügel, Eagles & Butterflies and Helena Hauff to name a few. His first official remix, of Sau Poler’s ‘Esperits’ was released on leading Dutch label, Atomnation and was Joris Voorn’s opening track at ADE.

2017 has continued where 2016 left off, with LOR’s ‘Versions II’ release, his reworks of two classic Larry Heard tracks, winning heavy support from Âme, Roman Flügel, Ian Pooley, Marcus Worgull, Sandrino, Eagles & Butterflies, Fort Romeau and more. His rework of ‘Guidance’ was also included by Adriatique in their BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix.

As a DJ, LOR is rapidly on the rise, moving from Belfast Underground Radio, to various festivals last summer including AVA in Belfast, Celtronic in Derry and Tramlines in Sheffield, supporting Skream. 2017 has seen demand rise again, with international dates confirmed as well as London’s respoected venue, Corsica Studios. His exclusive DJ mixes have been featured in such influential outlets as Data Transmission, When We Dip, Muting The Noise and DJ Mag.

With more new tracks signed and remixes underway for 2017, LOR continues to gain serious momentum as a new artist to watch.
