Amsterdam-based DJ and producer, Lauhaus
(Laurens Lanting), is one of the twosome inspirations
of ’POLDER’, together with David Labeij. Active in the
Dutch electronic music scene for over ten years now,
he is also part of six-sided crazy communal laptop
collective ’Amsterdam 611’ and most recently, the
label manager of the brand new imprint ’SOWESO’
with Kabale Und Liebe. Simply: a very busy bee.
It was 2004 that marked the emancipation of
’POLDER’. Their first release and debut album
’Poldermodel’ (Intacto Records 2008), received
immediate acclaim and support resulting in
international exposure and gigs worldwide.
The solo Lauhaus act has also coined him as one of
the important and respected players in the influential
Amsterdam scene with releases on ’Remote Area’
and ’Intacto Records’. His sound is broad: productions
made with a blend of house and techno, always
striving for the clash between the genres to produce
an exhilarating sound with an analogous feel.
2008 was the ground breaking year for Lauhaus with
head turning productions. ’Casamance’ released on
’Remote Area/Area Remote’ is an ultimate housing
Detroit tune. Jazzy chords, synths and rohdes
solo’s all over the place with pounding groove and
the hypnotic repetitive vocal hook. ”Downunder” on
’Intacto Records’ is a big time new school Techno
rollers ace with big beats and big breaks.
Lauhaus’s DJ style and sound is not to go unnoted.
An all encompassing journey from deep, housy, tribal
grooves to techy climaxes… always in tune with the
crowd and the vibe!
Never shy for some fun, Lauhaus’s strong
collaborations with Boris Werner, Kabale und Liebe,
Julien Chaptal, to name a few are yielding some
musical knacks not to miss!
