Although his early days were marked by experimentation in the world of dubstep, growing up in the UK inherently gave Biscits heavy exposure to the world of house music. Coming up as a DJ in the UK means loads of opportunities, but also a fair amount of competition. Not only do you need to be skilled in order to stand out amongst your peers, but you have to impress a knowledgeable fan base.
“Some of the crowds can be quite critical,” Luke said during his Gray Area Spotlight interview. “You have to know what you’re doing, know whose songs are whose. Play the right song or the crowd will know you don't know what you're doing. It’s nerve wracking in that sense, but if you do well, people have a ton of respect for you and it can help get your name out early.”
Biscits is now one of the hottest names in tech house, releasing with major labels like Solotoko, Black Book, and Higher Ground. He recently signed a publishing deal with the legendary Ultra Records, a true sign that his future is bright. We’ve surveyed his career through the lens of his releases, exploring how the sound has changed from one year to the next.
1. M Night (2017)
Released in 2017, “M Night” was an early yet successful offering from Biscits. Given he began his career in the world of bass music, this style of track comes as no surprise. A smooth bass house banger, “M Night” benefits from strong vocal snippets and a heavy bassline to showcase the early works of Biscits.
2. Do It Like This (2018)
“Do It Like This” marked Biscits’ jump into proper dance music. The track was his inaugural release on Sonny Fodera’s Solotoko label, and it showcased his ability to produce masterful tech house. Although his profile was still small at the time, the track received support from many big acts and signaled Biscits’ first step into the spotlight.
3. Insane (2019)
If there’s one track by Biscits one should know, it’s “Insane.” The collab with Sonny Fodera dropped in 2019 and was arguably one of the biggest tracks of the year. Infectious vocals pair with a unique drum pattern to make this the perfect track for any time of night. It truly put Biscits on the map and allowed him the creative freedom to progress in whatever direction he wanted going forward.
4. Sundown (2020)
Biscits did not sit idly by during the pandemic. 2020 was a landmark year for the British DJ as he worked tirelessly to stay relevant and on the mind of his peers. “Sundown” is a perfect example of his range expanding. The song is pure, joyful house, with uplifting vocals accompanying a catchy bassline to make it a fantastic summer banger.
5. Locco (2022)
The evolution of Biscits continues into the present with “Locco.” The track features a heavy dose of Latin flair, with Spanish vocals punctuating a build that has put crowds into a frenzy all over the world.
