LARSE (DJ SET)
Starting his career spinning records in the nineties, Larse very quickly made a name for himself in Germany. Bagging a residency with his first DJ gig at the Tanzcafe in his hometown of Dortmund, his skills on the decks caught the attention of 1LIVE Radio (Europe’s biggest youth radio station and Germany’s equivalent to BBC Radio One) who gave him his own show. Larse hosted 1LIVE „Klubbing“ alongside Mike Litt for over 15 years, earning him a nom ination for the German Dance Award, many loyal followers well as national and international bookings along the way.
But it was Larse’s move into producing that really kicked things off. His 2011 release ‚The More I Want‘ was picked by big names such as Jamie Jones and Tale of Us became a huge hit with Ibiza clubbers. His first EP ‚Nightshift‘ on Noir Music followed shortly awards and within a few months Larse reached the coveted number one spot of the all important Beatport Top 100 for the first time with ‚So Long‘, also released on Noir Music.
His timeless remix for legendary Soul & Gospel singer Candi Staton, released on Defected Records reached the Beatport number one spot again and brought him his first Gold Record in Belgium. Intensive touring ensued with gigs at the world’s top clubs including Fabric/ London, Sankeys/ Manchester, Polar Lounge/ NYC and Booom/ Ibiza to name only a few.
Now Larse is by no means resting on his laurels. He has already followed up with some high profile remixes on Exploited, Peppermint Jam, Glitterbox, Eskimo Recordings, Capitol Records and many more. With over 15 Mio plays in total, 130k monthly listeners he also has reached a solid base on Spotify.
In 2020 Larse started the year with the Italo-like „We Were Young“ on Musumeci’s Multinotes imprint, his new EP featuring Charlie Sputnik on Peppermint Jam and Remixes for Tender Games, Orbital Drum System and a special Remix Treatment for Jazzanova coming in November.
