We would like to present to you the first instalment of our exclusive mixes. Each month we will have an artist/dj present him or herself with a few words followed by an exclusive mix he/she will have prepared for your listening pleasure. Mix #1 is brought to you by the talented Danish dj Lou Van.

Who is Lou Van?

Born and raised in Copenhagen, Denmark, I have always been interested in music. Since sitting on my father’s lap, playing piano at the age of two, I have evolved my musical skills and interest towards dj'ing and producing my own tunes.

Since 2008, I have been playing in every club in Copenhagen and playing alongside acts such as: Trentemøller, 2MANYDJS, The Prodigy (dj-set), Feadz, Riva Starr, etc. In April, I won the category for "best new act of the year" in front of thousands of people at the annual 'Club Awards' show.

Lately, I own several residencies, playing at: Vega (Ideal Bar), Jazzhouse and the newly started Simons.
Go to Copenhagen and you'll probably run into me, and you will probably dance the night away!

What can you tell the readers about your mix?

Lately, I have been experimenting with disco and acid disco. In this mix you will find the regular disco, with the running bass riffs, but also electronic disco (nu-disco) and a bit of acid disco. The thing I love about playing disco is that you think more about the melodies in the tracks, and how they fit together, instead of just focusing on the beat mixing. I Hope you will enjoy it. :)
