Pioneering the nu-disco sound, years long before that kind of sound started to invade the worldwide indie charts (we used to call it house music) Laurent ASH aka LIFELIKE’s early productions (« Black Chess » EP on the legendary “20000ST” record label) soon pricked the ears of the likes of DJ Falcon and Thomas Bangalter(from Daft Punk), and playlisted his record during their "Together 2002 tour", which if you’re a young Producer, is basically the equivalent of getting all six numbers in the lottery, finally introducing him very quickly into the very small but highly talented "French Touch" family.
A french family of parisian artists that includes Daft Punk, Justice, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke, Air, Cassius, etc..
Almost every records he released since then gained instant support from BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Annie Mac as well as the DJ bibles such as DJ Mag, MixMag and Future Music Magazine, calling his productions“a sure-fire hit on dance floors” ,“walking that smooth and sexy line between nu-disco,new wave and funk” and "a master of crafting credible dance floor beast."
Those records includes "Discopolis", released on Alan Braxe's seminal label "Vulture", a massive inernational club hit, selling a total of more than 100000copies, topping the UK Top 40 chart at #18, Belgium Dance Chart #1, Germany/France Dance Chart #5, followed by "So Electric" released on Wall Of Sound, "Sequencer" (vulture), "Love Emulator" released on his own label "ComputerScience", or "Dont Stop featuring A-Trak" that was recently released on Kitsuné.
As a remixer, records companies quickly noticed LIFELIKE’s ability to turn any track into a dance floor hit and it wasnt long until other artists like Daft Punk, Giorgio Moroder, Superfunk, La Roux, Chromeo, Sia, Empire Of The Sun, Vitalic, Moby, Classixx, The Presets, Cerrone (more than 40 remixes released) to name a few of them, came to knock on his door trying to secure a remix from him.
As a touring entity, LIFELIKE has touched down all over the globe. From Europe and Australiaand Asia to America, and club to festival he’s been DJing alongside everyone from Fred Falke, DJ Falcon, Bloody beetroots, Vitalic, Russ Chimes, Oliver, GrandMaster Flash, Madeon, Alan Braxe, Ritchie Hawtin, Steve Angello, DJ Medhi, and many others. .
“Miami Nice” and 'Pacific Palisades' are Lifelike’s latest singles , 2 refreshing disco club sunburners, which got that classy french touch that could remind you somewhat of Daft Punk « Discovery »
One thing is sure : Lifelike’s music will make you feel good !!
