The hero hunter Wynter Gordon was able to catch the one and only Superhero who had the strength to Speak Up -- Laidback Luke.
Laidback Luke's long-awaited single featuring Wynter Gordon - "Speak Up" has been smashing the Beatport charts since its release on the 12.03.2012! With Laidback Luke's sick drops and Wynter Gordons chart topping credentials this track is ready to explode and make you #speakupabout anything you have ever been afraid to say -- like the 2000 people on Twitter!
The video shows Laidback Luke as a superhero which has been caught by Wynter Gordon. She tries to kick a confession out of him so that she can take over his superpowers. Laidback Luke won't give up with his infamous drops and Wynter Gordon's threats will not make him SPEAK UP!
Already well known for a multitude of collaborations with various big names including David Guetta, Diplo and A-Trak, Laidback Luke more recently hooked up with Sander van Doorn on the stellar track Who's Wearing The Cap, a mash up of trance, progressive and electro. Luke's latest collaboration with Arno Cost and Norman Doray "Trilogy" went successful on charts in no time. 2011 also saw Luke enjoying chart success on UK Top 40 hit, Natural Disaster with Example, as well as his work with Steve Aoki and the master of crunk Lil' Jon on Turbulence that took over Radio 1 airwaves.
Never one to shy away from an edgier sound, Laidback Luke injects a high dose of energy to Speak Up with a stomping build-up throughout the first half of the track that leads to a softer, suspenseful melody, supported by Wynter Gordon's vocals. Luke then goes full steam ahead and launches into another intense, aggressive build up to see the track through to the end. The perfect recipe for a chart crossover club anthem!
In addition to working with fellow stalwarts of the electronic music industry, Luke has also remixed stellar pop acts from Black Eyed Peas, David Guetta, Calvin Harris, Tiesto, MSTRKRFT ft. John Legend, Dizzee Rascal, Avicii and Moby to name a few. Its not just producing music that has keeps Luke busy. With his very own Super You&Me tent at Creamfields and a residency at Cream Ibiza last summer where he hosted the Mixmag Terrace on six dates, we can only wonder when he ever has any time to be "Laidback"..!
The Speak Up is soon to be followed by the remixes from Chris Lake, Mark Knight, Oliver Twizt, Moska, Das Kapital and Calvertron & Will Bailey who all put their own unique stamp on the track. The remixes package is out on the 26th of March via Beatport.
