Luuk van Dijk launches Dark Side Of The Sun
Amsterdam-based DJ and producer Luuk van Dijk starts a brand new imprint of his own called “Dark Side Of The Sun”. yes, there seems to be a dark side. The very first EP on the record label, “Suavo” is ready to set the tone with two of Van Dijk’s own high impact tracks and a remix from house tastemaker Sidney Charles, while collaborations with events and potentially a club night will follow.
Exploring musical boundaries & making progress
Van Dijk has started the brand to give himself more freedom in releasing his own music, whatever he likes and whenever he wants. “Dark Side Of The Sun” will allow him to explore his own musical boundaries and make him progress as an artist while tapping up talented friends for remixes. As such, it will become a platform for the wide spectrum of house and techno. In his own words: “It will be happy, housey, dark, badass basslines, dry beats, tight, swing; you name it.”

Suavo & Flangosh
The main track “Suavo” is a hard-hitting house tune with rock-solid kicks and spaced out pads that bring warmth and atmosphere. The track is designed to get the dance floor sweating and never lets up. Remixing is Sidney Charles, the German house connoisseur who runs his own Heavy House Society. He strips things back to a more tripped out and garage tinged groove with infectious drums and turbo-bass that makes you want to move.
Up next, Luuk Van Dijk offers the dark and paranoid “Flangosh”, again with rolling, well-programmed drums and slick hi-hats. This time with some industrial, warehouse styled sounds that make it feel raw and naughty.
This massive first EP will lead the way for “Dark Side Of The Sun” to evolve into a known name in the scene. The Suavo EP will drop right before Christmas on Spotify and 27/12/2019 on all other stores. Stay tuned.
