Within the UK club scene, few occupy the space that London-based artist LUXE has carved out for herself in recent years.
LUXE studied classical music from a young age, with focus on flute, piano and voice. Following a move to Manchester for university, her focus shifted toward the city's rich club scene. Since moving to London, her various disciplines have begun to converge – the open-ended possibilities of electronic music, the invaluable underpinning of music theory and the understated confidence afforded from years of classical practice.
Her ever-evolving sound has found home on labels such as HAAi's Radical New Theory, Borne Fruits, Dansu Discs and Accidental Meetings, as well as a forthcoming release on D. Tiffany's esteemed Planet Euphorique.
These creative perspectives extend to LUXE's DJ sets, weaving cohesively through styles while tossing tired categorisation to the wayside, while most importantly, consistently invigorating the dance. This hybrid mentality is one reason why LUXE is booked across a multitude of high-quality yet varied lineups, having graced the stages of London's mammoth Waterworks Festival, returned to Manchester to play Pride weekend alongside Or:la at The White Hotel, and most notably, recording several guest mixes for Mary Anne Hobbs' iconic BBC Radio 6 Music show, as well as opening the station's stage as Field Day 2022.
