ERIC LAU“..There’s beauty everywhere, from the smallest things, to the largest things in the universe. I feel, when I make music, it just comes through me. I’m just trying to be a part of everything else.” ERIC LAU ON MAKING MUSIC (Excerpt taken from The making of QUADRIVIUM2011)

Who is ERIC LAU?

London beat-maker ERIC LAU needs no introduction amongst producers worldwide. With a number of international artists under his belt on collaborative projects from Georgia Anne Muldrow, Guilty Simpson, Lupe Fiasco, Oddisee, Tanya Morgan, Muhsinah, Chris “Daddy” Dave, Dudley Perkins and a host of others, it’s not that often relatively unknown beat producers get to collaborate with a stunning array of artists early on in their careers.

Furthermore to his production work, Eric Lau is also a well sought after DJ contributing mixtapes on various distinguished music platforms which include legendary Gilles Peterson WorldWide, Red Bull Music Academy, BTS Radio, and Put Me On It to name a few. His DJ career has provided him the opportunity to support high profile artists such as Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper, and Questlove – all within a few short years.

Released through UBIQUITY RECORDS in 2008, Eric Lau’s debut album “New Territories” generated worldwide recognition landing him a spot in Gilles Peterson’s Top Albums of 2008 and additional support from music lovers, grounding his position in the music industry as a talented producer. With a string of instrumental albums that followed suit released through KILAWATT MUSIC, 2012 will see Eric Lau release a full length album entitled ‘One of Many’ amongst a host of other collaborative and instrumental production albums in the works.
