Having emerged via his versatile and dynamic DJ sets for the likes of Circoloco, with releases via labels such as Keinemusik, Innervisions, and Anjunadeep, Swiss DJ/producer Laolu has stamped his mark while racking up support from Dixon and Black Coffee. Arriving in fine form, he closes out November with a classy label debut on Damian Lazarus' renowned Crosstown Rebels as he serves up his latest two-track release "Now I See" - a vibrant and personal release shaped and finalized after a decade following the birth of his daughter.

Now I See is the last iteration of a demo I left untouched for over a decade. The birth of my daughter gave me the vision and clarity of mind to bring it to completion. For "Monday to Sunday," I wanted to do something different and collaborate with Kamohelo Khoaripe, the frontman of Of The Meds. I loved their song "Belter." It's a bit of a curveball combining techno influences, afro vocals, and a heavily distorted oriental flute.

Spirited and resonant, combining soulful female vocals with organic percussion and sweeping melodies throughout, "Now I See" is a warm and sonorous production set for heartfelt dancefloor moments, while "Monday To Sunday" featuring the impactful vocals of Kamohelo takes a darker path as swirling bass patterns, menacing synths, and warped tones merge around the commanding flute for a powerful late night cut.
