DJ/producer/songwriter Leon Lour is back with his first track since his ‘All Our Dreams’ EP last year- the attention-grabbing “Faster” (out today through Big Beat Records) starts off with a synthwave-leaning sound before Lour’s signature EDM/pop sound kicks in, making the song perfect for late-night club dance floors around the world – LISTEN HERE!
On “Faster” Leon says, After almost a year since my last release (“All Our Dreams” EP) I’m so excited to finally release my next single “Faster”. The first type of electronic music I heard was Trance back on Dave Pearce’s Euphoria CDs from the early 00’s and I’ve loved it since. Incorporating Trance into my style is something I’ve always wanted to try. The soundscapes and energy have always been electric and I’m so happy with the result in this slower, more breaks, vibe. I loved making this track and hope people feel it too!
