Born in the Philippines but raised in the Netherlands, Lucas Cornelis van Scheppingen found his love of music early on, after finding his love of graffiti art. His stage name is drawn from the song “Gin and Juice” by Snoop Dogg, a tribute to his love of the hip-hop genre. Known for his work ethic and innovative style, Laidback Luke has remixed Wynter Gordon’s “Dirty Talk” and is constantly working at promoting his Super You and Me parties all over the world.
Super You and Me
The Super You and Me concept involves superhero themed parties and has become extremely popular. Laidback Luke says that the parties began in Amsterdam on nights that he was DJing. He envisioned these parties as allowing everyone attending to feel like a hero. Luke has made an indelible mark on Ibiza, and has a residency at Amnesia, where he continues to promote his Super You and Me sound.
Luke will be hosting a Super You and Me event at the Spring Awakening Music Festival in Chicago on June 16th.
