A DJ/Producer and now a Label Owner, at the tender age of 22, Loui is laying the foundations for a long and fruitful career in Music.
Born into a family immersed by music, Inspirations weren’t hard to come by, his Father was the Synth/Keyboard player in the Legendary 90’s band Unique 3 and his mother was a big part of the clubbing scene in Middlesbrough’s Havana, Manchester’s Hacienda and occasional spells on the White Isle.
A combination of the two is where Loui’s roots lie, taking the creative and innovative side to produce and play music from his father, entwined with the side from his mother to be a part of the atmosphere, and really feel the energy that’s created on dance floors. These two recipes make the perfect catalyst for a DJ who can really connect with any crowd.
After his first taste of a proper rave when he ventured out to Newcastle to Shindig on his 17th Birthday to see Laurent Garnier and the following year DJ Sneak & Heidi, it became clear what he wanted to pursue.
Living in Sunderland Loui was tired of seeing people travelling out of the city and his hometown clubbing experiences being overshadowed by their neighbours Newcastle. He thought it would be huge step forward for his city if he could bring these types of nights and Artists to his doorstep and save people travelling out of the city for their fix of good music.
In 2013 he approached Carlton Johnston (CeeJ) and with help from his Brother Azz! Johnston and few close friends they ran on to create the phenomenon known as Haze today. Over 50 parties in the last 2 year which has hosted some of the world’s biggest DJ’s, and none other than Heidi who he saw in Shindig, four years on he couldn’t of imagined she would be coming to headline his own Haze.
Outside of events and DJing Loui spends his spare time in his studio, honing his sound and mastering his production skills. Having been approached by a label, Loui and Haze decided it was the right time to start their own, and thus Haze Records was born, this project will be an integral part of the Haze brand and a stern platform for his own music.
Expect big things from him this year and next……
