Spotlight 006: In Lakech

In Lakech has recently been part of the new Hypnotica release alongside various artists, including the label owner, The Alexsander. He has joined us in a conversation about his life throughout the pandemic, his musical inspirations and more.

How have you been doing lately, it’s been a strange time for everyone in music but we are starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel?

I’ve been doing great, thank you for having me. Yeah, many artists are playing more and more at events, so light in the tunnel? Definitely!

How did you first get into electronic music, what was the moment you knew you wanted to do this?

It all started when I was a kid and my father showed me Rendez-vous Houston Live concert 1986 by Jean-Michel Jarre. The show was in the whole town of Skyline Houston with an audience of 1.3 million people. And 4 years later he did the same thing in Paris. It was Mind-blowing!

Who have been the most inspiring artists in your style of music?

That’s a difficult question, I usually find my inspiration on other types of music except electronic, from Mike Oldfield to Vangelis, Hans Zimmer, Diplo, Royksopp to Deadmau5, and so on.

How long have you known The Alexsander? You are one of several artists to appear on the very first Hypnotic Rhythm Various Artists release titled Hypnotica 001!

We have been friends since many years back. We were DJ: ing in Stockholms nightclubs. The first time we worked together was in 2011. We made a remix for Terri B, Farren Amani, and Lucas Reyes with a different alias. And now a couple of years later we are back together in the studio. He is an amazing artist, we have a lot in common in our music vision. I was honored to do 3 remixes for hypnotic rhythm before this release.

Where in the world would you like to perform, what is on your bucket list as a location and venue?

My dream is to perform at the Great Pyramids of Giza, or hold a concert-show in Machu Picchu. 

During the ‘downtime’ of the pandemic, tell us some skills you learnt, or things you did more of which you may not have?

I learned a lot more about myself, like accepting changes. That has been my great learning. I try to stay positive as much as possible, and grateful for every moment. I’ve been reading more books and focusing on the inner journey and mostly my family. 

What do you think the music industry has to do in order to continue as it is, following this period of uncertainty?

Good question! I think it depends where you are in the music industry. If you are an A&R agent or a major label, you probably have your theory. As an artist, I think the future belongs to the artists since everything is based on us, more power to the artist for a professional contribution to the scene and the industry. 

What music are you working on, can you share details of this?

One of my biggest passions is film scoring, and my concept with In Lakech is to combine that with my sound and touch, and by doing that I tell my story. I’ve finished my content recently. Now I look forward to starting my first album. I am at my best when I am learning, and providing my music to the world around me, whatever that world may be.
