Shares new video for ‘Fire That Burns’
Taken from new EP ‘The Churn’ out now via Skint Records
Swedish musician / composer / producer Lukas Lyrestam is poised to announce a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Fire That Burns’, lifted from ‘The Churn’ EP released through Brighton based label Skint Records on 5th March 2021.
Drawing on a myriad of influences from house, pop and soul, ‘Fire That Burns’ is an addictive slice of pop-leaning electronica, offering us the perfect respite we all need right now.
Lukas says: “It’s a record of two-halves – The Churn a bastard love-child of 90s rave and jangly guitars, while Fire That Burns tackles the concept of raw electronic-pop. Recorded between Berlin, Los Angeles and Stockholm its contemporary dance music that I created while falling in & out of love last year.”
Merging the worlds of 80s pop and contemporary deep house, Lukas Lyrestam bridges the emotional worlds of electronic music with straight retro-rollers. With releases on legendary labels like Skylax Records, Common Labour and many more plus props from legends of the scene like Gerd Janson, Todd Edwards, Mano Le Tough, Soul Clap and more keep an eye on this one as he rolls out a swashbuckling live show filled with guitars and vocal acrobatics.
Born in Sweden but raised in London this grafter of deep-house has run a vinyl-only record label for the last five years as well as events in bookings at legendary institutions like Ministry of Sound and EGG. Having DJ’d internationally for the last 5 years as well as thrown his own fair share of illegal underground parties on the continent this young man’s dance-floor instincts are very well honed.
Having recently spent time in Paris and relocated to Berlin, house-legend Hardrock Striker (collaborator of DJ Sprinkles, LARRY HEARD etc.) oversaw Lukas’ recent and most complete piece of work – When 2 Bodies Become One, which came out in 2020.
This unique collage of house, electronica and retro vibes was supported across the board by a huge variety of DJs and publications like HERCULES and Love Affair, Surgeon, DJ Deep, Luke Slater, Red Axes, Jennifer Cardini, Sandrien, Ivan Smagghe, Dublab, Redlight Radio, NTS, Mixmag and Pitchfork. The future’s looking bright for Lukas as the vanguard of electronic music stamp their seal of approval.
‘The Churn’ EP is released on 5th March through Skint Records.
