Laidback Luke Launches Massive North American Bus Tour

Laidback Luke returns with his long awaited new single “Speak Up” featuring Wynter Gordon. Destined to be one of the most talked about tracks of Miami Music Week and the entire spring, “Speak Up!” is Luke at his finest – massive energy and stomping builds are matched with gentle melodies and a flawless vocal from Wynter Gordon. The perfect recipe for a chart crossover club anthem! “Speak Up” released March 12th on Beatport and March 27th at all other digital partners.

To celebrate the release of “Speak Up!,” Laidback Luke is set to embark on his biggest adventure yet – a bus tour across the North America. Commencing March 9 in Las Vegas, Nevada and ending April 22 in Bloomington, Indiana this seven-week tour brings Laidback Luke and his Mixmash cohorts GTA and Oliver Twizt to cities of all sizes; many of which Luke’s never visited before. (editor note. Laidback Luke plays in Old Town Scottsdale at Sound Kitchen / Wild Knight on Thursday, March 8, 2012.) “I’m so about my Speak Up! Bus Tour. It’s a first for me and so I am looking forward to a completely new experience, performing at places I’ve never been to before now. It’s set to be a big adventure and hope to see you all on board soon!,” Luke says.  

Already well known for a multitude of collaborations with various big names including David Guetta, Diplo and A-Trak, Laidback Luke more recently hooked up with Sander van Doorn on the stellar track “Who’s Wearing The Cap”, a mash up of trance, progressive and electro. Luke’s latest collaboration with Arno Cost and Norman Doray “Trilogy” went successful on charts in no time. 2011 also saw Luke enjoying chart success on UK Top 40 hit, Natural Disaster with Example, as well as his work with Steve Aoki and the master of crunk Lil’ Jon on Turbulence that took over Radio 1 airwaves.

In addition to working with fellow stalwarts of the electronic music industry, Luke has also remixed stellar pop acts from Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Tiësto, MSTRKRFT ft. John Legend, Dizzee Rascal, Avicii, Moby, and most recently, Pitbull Ft. Marc Anthony “Rain Over Me” and Madonna “Give Me All Your Love.” It’s not just producing music that has keeps Luke busy. With his very own Super You&Me tent at Creamfields and a residency at Cream Ibiza last summer where he hosted the Mixmag Terrace on six dates, we can only wonder when he ever has any time to be “Laidback”..!

The Original Mix of “Speak Up!” was released exclusively on Beatport from March 12. In April, be on the lookout for the “Speak Up!” remixes package featuring new interpretations of the track from Chris Lake, Mark Knight, Oliver Twizt, Moska and Das Kapital.
