Every week we ask a creative, artisan, or musician to share what music gets them going from dawn to dusk. This week, Belgian DJ maestro and record producer Lost Frequencies arranges the beats that invigorate his senses.
Felix De Laet believes in uncovering music gems from the past. Hence, he dusts off nearly-forgotten records from the past and remixes them with an updated sound. This project eventually gave birth to his stage name and moniker, Lost Frequencies. The 25-year-old producer, whose massive hit 'Are You With Me' appears in almost every EDM-lovers' music playlist, has spun at major festivals such as Tomorrowland and Coachella despite only making his debut in 2014.
Previously headlined at ZoukOut Singapore in 2016, Lost Frequencies is back on our shores for this year's AIA Glow Festival. Unlike music-specific festivals that offer only aural experiences, AIA Glow Festival incorporates health and philanthropical elements while immersing yourself in Lost Frequencies' mesmerising live set. Also joining him at the festival are award-winning UK band Rudimental, Scottish singer-songwriter Nina Nesbitt and homegrown pop quartet The Sam Willows.
Besides the music element, festival goers can take part in a 5km charity fun run. AIA will donate S$10 to the AIA Centennial Fund that'll benefit more than a hundred families from Children's Wishing Well upon completion by every participant. All it takes is a little effort to do some good and you get to burn off some calories. Win-win for all.
After the run, cool down and stretch with one of 22 different Yoga styles and more than 30 Yoga classes specially curated by Pure Yoga.
AIA Glow Festival 2019 will illuminate on 25 May at Sentosa from 7am to 11pm. For more information, pop by the AIA Glow Festival website.
“When I wake up, I have a lot of energy and I’m often pumped up for the day I’m about to have, so of course, the music I’m listening to will either calm me down or excite me more for the rest of the day!”
"Let’s start with one of my favourite group of the moment. LSD (Labrinth, Sia & Diplo) just released an amazing album, I love the whole vibe they managed to create around it and when I listen to those tracks, I hear a good production, a well-designed world towards the music and of course amazing singers! I picked 'Genius', their first single because it’s a track that gives me a lot of energy!"
"Good vibes, great lyrics and good musical textures, I just can not sing with this track and vibe along with it! Saw MØ a little bit over a year ago live in Brussels, loved every second of the show."
3. 'Bury a friend'—Billie Eilish
"Funny enough, I discovered Billie Eilish quite some time ago with “when the party’s over”, but unfortunately it took me some time to discover the rest of her music, which is so good. Her new album is dark and moody, with funny production ideas/arrangements. Listening to “Bury a friend” in the morning is definitely something that wakes me up and opens my mind towards new musical discoveries!"
“After all the things I did during the day (travelling, producing, interviews, meetings), I need something to relax my mind. So here we’ll be listening to more relaxing music, that I absolutely love and often give me a lot of inspiration for myself!”
1. 'Enter One'—Sol Seppy
"Close your eyes and let your mind travel with this music. Chill and emotional, but yet powerful around the end of the track, this track gives me the chills and will stay in my private playlist for quite some time, that's for sure!"
2. 'Gallows'—Shelby Merry
"Again, really relaxing vibe, acoustic guitar and soulful voice, that kind of tracks make me want to grab my piano and just play. Pure music, no electronic production, indie-rock helps me to ease my mind and opens up my creativity. Love it!"
"I have to include a track of Lomepal, a French rapper/singer. He has amazing texts and great productions. I love the fact that he sings and has a fully grown world in which he is developing his project. “Evidemment” will be my favourite of his last album. His last album also definitely is in my top 5 of favourites albums of all times, be sure to check it out!"
“I can’t go around sharing tracks without including my favourite dance tracks of the moments of course! So here we go in a deeper/melodic/techy kind of dance vibe. It’s also the music I play in my sets and that I love to listen to in parties to wake everybody up!"
1. 'Body Funk (Dom Dolla Remix)'—Purple Disco Machine
“I saw Dom Dolla play at a pool party in Miami, he got me 'shazaming' over 3 tracks on his set (which I not usually do) and made me a big fan of his work. His latest remix for Purple Disco Machine also got me in his mood. Amazing production and sound design, just love this.”
2. 'Let It Go (Terrace Dub)'—Gorgon City & Naations
“Summer vibes? Check. Melody? Check. Good Production? Check. Amazing vocal? Check. Heard this track in a set of Gorgon City and has been playing it in my sets since. The vocal in the second part is just amazing and makes me want to go into the studio to produce music.”
3. 'My Mind (Woodpoz)'—Two Pauz
“Two Pauz is a duo from Brussels, and released this track on my label “Found Frequencies”. Be sure to keep an eye on those guys as they have a lot of music coming up that I hear and is awesome. This track gives you a hint of what they’re up to, melodic electronic music, but with a powerful outro. Love this one and love to listen to it after a party, eyes closed in my bed, enjoying the cosiness of my bed! ”
