Being born within a musical melting pot and learning his abc´s alongside taking music lessons, didn’t give him an opportunity to escape his natural born talent. Rotterdam based dj and producer Lucien Foort studied saxophone and orchestra for eight years. Growing into adolescence, he moved on to rock, rap and rave, playing in different bands and experimenting with different music genres. Lucien’s first claim to fame was with his well-known rave anthem Quadrophonia.
From there on Lucien takes up deejaying and develops his own signature style. His productions plus those under the moniker “Funk Function” and his “Dutch Liquid” productions find their way into the record crates of the high and mighty of the dance scene, a.o Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, Sasha, John Digweed, Tiesto and Armin van Buuren. He has released on labels such as Armada, Universal, Additive, Bedrock, Polydor, Positiva, SONY BMG, Toolroom, Hed Kandi and many more. His tracks have topped the dance charts worldwide and club anthem “Bleeep!” on Toolroom Recordings UK was on nr 1 in the Beatport Tech House charts for 7 months.
Lucien has toured all over the world and has held worldwide DJ residencies in clubs like Gatecrasher, Mint, Pacha, Sankeys and Amnesia. He has played at big festivals like Tomorrowland, Time Warp, Creamfields, Dance Valley, Roskilde, Mysteryland, Extrema Outdoor and Two Tribes Australia. Sharing the stage with the likes of Roni Size, De La Soul, Carl Cox, Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, John Digweed, Ricardo Villalobos, Monika Kruse, Mark Knight, Armin Van Buuren and Tiësto.
Last but not least Lucien Foort has hosted radioshows on Dutch radio stations 3FM, ID&T Radio/SLAM FM and Fresh FM.
All this experience translates in a trained ear which knows perfectly which frequencies work for clubs, radio and more. A huge benefit when mixing and mastering tracks.
