LUKE DZIERZEK BIOGRAPHY
Luke Dzierzek is a name that has made a massive impact on electronic music
in the past twelve months. With huge basslines, heavy electro stabs and
admirers including the likes of Sasha and Zabiela it's no wonder why. The
release of his forward thinking productions have gained many fans the world
over and resulted in Dzierzek being recognised as one of the planet's finest
Luke grew up in Kent and it was here that his interest in music started.
Aged just 6 Luke started playing the keyboard and by the time he was 12 he
was fluent in playing the electric guitar. Before long he had taught himself
how to utilise a keyboard and drums as well as multi tracking his own work.
But it was after listening to the likes of Sasha, Oakenfold and Digweed Luke
was instantly hooked on electronic music and quickly purchased himself a set
Many hour spent locked away in his bedroom gave Luke the technique and
ability to rock a dancefloor which he repeated in several local pubs and
bars. It was here where Dzirezek gained invaluable experience in how to read
a crowd. But it wasn't long before he got bored of playing other people's
music and decided to try his hand at creating his own. He quickly acquired
himself a copy of Fruity Loops, a basic music production programme that gave
Luke an insight into how to make music electronically. Dzierzek soon
upgraded to Reason and Pro-Tools but it wasn't until he got his hands on
Ableton that he really managed to got his teeth stuck in. "The simplicity of
the program was what first attracted me to Ableton" says Dzierzek. "Its
capabilities to manipulate audio quickly and easily then arrange it
effortlessly is awesome." After originally trying out a demo version Luke
soon became hooked on the software and has never looked back.
But it was at Maidstone based club night ClubClass where Luke got his first
taste of life in a proper club. By listening to the likes of Digweed, Deep
Dish and resident Nic Fanciulli, Luke was able to find his feet musically
and before long he was living, eating and sleeping underground house music.
Dzierzek's first productions 'One Day' and 'Echo', tunes made on his home
laptop, were immediately signed as an EP by Silver Planet and it wasn't long
before a mental buzz was built up around these two records. Sasha, James
Zabiela, King Unique, Dave Seaman, Jonathan Lisle, Nic Fanciulli, Hernan
Cattaneo and Fergie were soon hammering it, whilst the EP stayed in the Buzz
chart for three weeks after Pete Tong aired it three times on his Radio 1
Essential Selection Show. Eventually the EP would go onto be Silver Planets
biggest record of 2005.
His second release on Silver Planet in October 2005 was called 'Timeless', a
digital download release that was at number 1 on DJ downloads Top 10 chart
for four weeks and went on to be the websites 2nd most downloaded track of
2005. The success of these releases has resulted in an abundance of remix
work from the likes of Global Underground, Bedrock, Junior and Cr2, whilst
the 'Wrongens & Randoms EP' co-produced with Nick Liousias has already
received major DJ support and along with 'Echo' features on Dave Seaman's
2006 Renaissance Masters compilation series.
Luke is now looking to spread his wings by causing as much devastation
behind the decks as in the studio. Gigs have come in thick and fast with
Dzierzek showcasing his awesome sound at ClubClass alongside Nic Fanciulli
and James Zabiela, for Bedrock and Silver Planet at Turnmills in London,
Empathy in Bristol, at the Amsterdam Dance Music Event and with Eric Prydz
at the Ambassada club in Ljubljana, Slovenia.
