Biografie

Being born within a musical melting pot and learning his abc´s alongside taking music lessons, didn’t give him an opportunity to escape his natural born talent. Rotterdam based dj and producer Lucien Foort studied saxophone and orchestra for eight years. Growing into adolescence, he moved on to rock, rap and rave, playing in different bands and experimenting with different music genres. Lucien’s first claim to fame was with his well known rave anthem Quadrophonia.

From there on Lucien takes up deejaying and develops his own signature style. His more progressive productions under the moniker “Funk Function” (the Empress series) and his “Dutch Liquid” 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.

Lucien’s career speeds up with worldwide DJ residencies in clubs like Gatecrasher UK, Mint and Pacha in Buenos Aires. He is a frequently booked at big festivals like Dance Valley (NL), Gatecrasher Summer Sound System, Homelands, Creamfields, Roskilde and Two Tribes Australia. Meanwhile he compiles and releases his first mix compilation called ‘Singularity’ which puts him on stage with the likes of Roni Size, De La Soul, Carl Cox, Ferry Costen, Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Buren, Tiësto and many more. In 2001 Lucien is asked to do a prestigious “BBC Radio One Essential Mix” for which he get’s nominated by british Muzik Magazine. His crowded schedule still allows him to get in the studio to produce remixes for labels such as Additive, Bedrock, Polydor, Positiva and SONY BMG.
