[香港 Hong Kong ] – 18 JAN 2014
Eric Lau is a London-based producer, known for his work with an array of international artists including Lupe Fiasco, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Chris “Daddy” Dave, Dudley Perkins, Guilty Simpson, Oddisee, Muhsinah, Tanya Morgan, and several others.
In addition to production work he is also a well respected DJ having toured the world and supported acts such as Erykah Badu, Questlove and Robert Glasper to name a few. He has also provided mixes for renowned music platforms such as BTS Radio, RBMA Radio, Put Me On It, Gilles Peterson Worldwide and several others.
Ubiquity Records released his debut album ʻNew Territoriesʼ in 2008 to great critical acclaim and was nominated as one of Gilles Petersonʼs Worldwide Top Albums of the Year 2008, establishing him as a key name at the forefront of progressive production talent. A two-year absence then saw the release of the ʻKilawatt: V2ʼ, ʻMakinʼ Soundʼ and ʻEric Lau & Friends - See and Under Standingʼ projects with Kilawatt Music, which generated a new wave of interest in the producers work. A new 20-track album called ʻQuadrivium' soon emerged in 2011 to rave reviews, alongside the completion of ʻThe Mission EPʼ with Detroit native Guilty Simpson.
Lau's latest offering for 2013 'One of Many' is perfect as summertime neo-soul, and full of mellow yet urgent head-nodders - the thick beats that encompass this solid new full-length are so delectable you'd feel like spitting verses over them...
The Eric Lau sound already spans a variety of different genres and his collaborations with an eclectic collective of soul singers, musicians, dj's, rappers and producers with the same mind set will help push the envelope further.
