LCAW reveals his new track, the rousing ‘Desires’ (via Columbia Germany / Ultra) featuring legendary Danish electronic trioWhoMadeWho.
Beginning his journey in classical music, LCAW (aka Leon Weber) has since developed into a renowned electronic producer – his unique blend of pop and dance music gaining him support from the likes of ODESZA, Martin Garrix, Robin Schulz, and Felix Jaehn. The 22 year old Munich native has also turned in acclaimed remixes for the likes of London Grammar, All Colors, Fritz Kalkbrenner, Marlon Roudette, ZHU and many others.
After his remixes generated more than 60 million plays on Soundcloud and YouTube, LCAW released his debut single ‘Painted Sky’ in 2016 and achieved a top 50 placement in the German airplay charts. Follow up singles ‘Man in the Moon’, ‘Staring at the Sun (ft. Sophie Hintze)’ and ‘Nobody Else But You’ have subsequently seen him attain more than 10 million total plays worldwide, with an army of followers and fans.
‘Desires’ takes listeners on a journey out of the winter chill, with a dreamy and sun drenched sound. LCAW has enlisted the help of WhoMadeWho to provide vocals. The Danish band are legendary for bringing the disco sound back to underground dance music – and have released 4 albums since 2005 on labels including Gomma Records, Kompakt and Get Physical. The band are currently recording a new album which is planned for release in 2018, and recently released a new single, ‘Dynasty’.
LCAW said: “Working with WhoMadeWho was something I wanted to do for quite a while, their self-titled album on Gomma is one of my favourites! ‘Desires’ came together very naturally, my instrumental production was already in a similar musical world – so when I showed them one of the early versions they quickly agreed to provide the vocals for the track. This is a collaboration not many were expecting but that just makes it so much more special.”
LCAW is currently working on new music and will release his debut EP early in 2018. Further details to be announced in due course.
