Amsterdam’s own youthful Luuk van Dijk premieres his new track New York today; an up-beat melody with strong house roots.
Landing on this earth just over 20 years ago, Luuk van Dijk is relatively new to the scene. He started producing around 5 years ago and soon gained a strong affinity with both production and mixing. In 2014 he bagged a spot at Mysteryland having won the Kunstbende DJ-contest. From this point on the young producer and DJ has caught the ear of many huge names allowing him to up the anti.
Not only has Dijk graced the likes of ADE and Straf_werk Festival here in Amsterdam, he’s also been invited to turn things up a notch at fantasy land Elrow. Being renowned for his ability to retain an extensive knowledge of musical history way beyond his years, Luuk still exudes a contemporary twist to keep things moving forward. He’s been known to support the likes of Eats Everything, gained support from acts like Sidney Charles and Joris Voorn. Not so long ago he was spotted keeping the fuel ignited at an after party with a b2b set with Huxley.
Today’s track is a great example of young talent really identifying with how house music has developed, incorporating aspects of old synth combinations with a contemporary twist. The track begins with a samba feel to it, progressing into a deeper electronic feel resulting in it being a Friday night club banger. Overall his EP ‘New York’ is the ideal balance between Chicago house and tech house showcasing catchy melodies that escalade into an 80s acidic vibe.
The ‘New York’ EP will be available on December 9th on Food Music.
