Rotterdam based dj and producer Lucien Foort got enrolled in music preschool at the age of 4 where he developed the early beginnings of playing the flute whilst reading, writing and composing music. When he enrolled in music school at age 10, he started playing the saxophone and studied classical music and jazz. But being inspired by the art of turntablism and beat mixing he ventured behind the decks a few years later. And at the age of 19 Lucien Foort took the world by storm, when he released rave anthem “Quadrophonia” in ‘89.
His productions find their way into the record crates of the high and mighty of the dance scene, a.o Carl Cox, Roger Sanchez, Sasha and John Digweed. He has released on international record labels such as Bedrock, SONY BMG, Universal Music, Armada Music and Toolroom. His tracks have topped the dance charts worldwide and club anthem “Bleeep!” on Toolroom was a nr 1 in the Beatport Tech House charts for 7 months. Touring all over the world he has played at big festivals and venues like Tomorrowland, Time Warp, Creamfields, Dance Valley, Mysteryland, I Love Techno, Roskilde, Extrema, Sankeys, Pacha and Amnesia. Sharing the stage with the likes of Carl Cox, Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, John Digweed, Ricardo Villalobos and Monika Kruse.
The last few years Lucien focused on studio work and the Dutch underground scene by playing at respected venues such as Maassilo, Factory 010, Toffler, Westerunie, PIP The Hague, Club Poema, Bahn and festivals like Milkshake Festival, Boothstock Festival, Indian Summer Festival and Outdoor Stereo Festival. Which led to Lucien & Friends events and stages at Maassilo Rotterdam, Outdoor Stereo Festival and several clubs. During that period he has reinvented himself again from scratch and went back to his underground house and techno roots. His recent house and techno releases are being supported by names such as Paco Osuna, Marco Carola, Loco Dice, Sam Paganini and more.
Last but not least Lucien Foort has hosted radioshows on Dutch radio stations 3FM, ID&T Radio/SLAM FM and Fresh FM.
