LUUDE Interview - Bigger and Better

Meet LUUDE, one of Australia’s leading bass and trap producers. Over the years, LUUDE has become renown for his soaring soundscapes, and boisterous beats. We had a chat to LUUDE about his relationship with music, upcoming appearance at This That Festival, and more!

Futuremag Music: Hey LUUDE, how’s life treating you?

LUUDE: Yeah life is pretty good, been on a hectic touring schedule lately but I’m heading into a week break now which is nice.

Futuremag Music: Jumping straight into it, you’ve been smashing the trap and bass scene! How’d you move into production? Where do you see the scene developing in the next few years?

LUUDE: got into producing a few years ago after I saw an AVICII production video on youtube, I thought it looked fun so I downloaded an illegal copy of FL studio.

It’s hard to say how the scene will develop because things seem to change so quickly in music at the moment - I’m only really thinking about the things I’m doing and trying to build the project bigger and better.

Futuremag Music: You’re performing at this year’s This That Festival. What can fans expect from your performance? Is there anything in particular you’d like the crowd to look out for when you’re shredding the stage?

LUUDE: I’ve got a whole new production set up that I used for the first time this weekend at The Metro Theatre in Sydney - So people will be able to see that show in a bit of a different layout, should be sick.


Futuremag Music: Who are you keen to see on the This That line up, and why?

LUUDE: Goldlink kills it and I haven’t seen him before so that should be sick and RL Grime’s show is always really on point, I heard he’s bringing out some crazy production too.

Futuremag Music: A sort of funny one to wrap it up. If ‘LUUDE’ was a cocktail what would be in it to best describe yourself and your music?

LUUDE: Just heaps of VB
