Australian electronic producer LUUDE has quickly risen to the forefront of the scene with his bass heavy dance music, and now Sweat It Out welcome Christian Benson aka LUUDE to the fam. Continuing his upward trajectory, LUUDE releases a dynamic double A-side, ‘Luudooskins’, fusing his forward-thinking electronic production with tasteful drum and bass elements. The first single ‘Arms’ showcases energetic breakbeats, contrasted against soaring synths, while ‘Butters’ is a festival-ready dance single, with a hooky vocal, juxtaposed against the heavy bass drops.
Also recognised as one half of the well-respected Australian duo, Choomba, who have been endorsed by tastemakers such as The Magician, Claude Von Stroke, Richie Hawtin, Claptone, Riva Starr, and Erick Morillo. Most recently the production powerhouse released ‘Say It feat. LP Giobbi & Blush’ko’, which had the heavy support of triple j and dance music icons, Martin Jensen and Benny Benassi!
LUUDE talks about refining his sound, “I always want to be making stuff that feels exciting – and I’ve been working on this next phase for LUUDE for a while, just trying to find all the right elements, so while Choomba was doing it’s thing last year I’ve been really refining the LUUDE project and I couldn’t be happier to launch into it with Sweat It Out a label who’s always on the cutting edge of Australian dance music.”
With only a handful of releases under his belt, LUUDE has scored over 30 million streams across his catalogue. Moreover, his singles have also caught the attention of tastemaker outlets Stoney Roads, Pilerats, DJ Times and This Song Is Sick. On the touring side, The Tasmanian born, Perth Raised, Gold-Coast based artist quickly took hold of the local club circuit, becoming an in-demand name across Australia. From there, the local talent sold-out shows around Australia and New Zealand as well as festival appearances at Listen Out, Field Day, This/That and the forthcoming Wildlands festival!
