Adrian Lux @ The Hoxton | The Swedish Up-and-Comer

Adrian Lux @ The Hoxton | The Swedish Up-and-Comer

I wasn’t going to write this post originally but after a poppin’ Dec 22nd performance at the Hoxton in Toronto, I changed my mind.

Adrian Lux, the Swedish DJ who’s best known for producing tracks such as ‘Teenage Crime’ and ‘Can’t Sleep’, has been on my watch-list ever since I saw him open for Dada Life back in September at Sound Academy. To be honest, back then I thought his set was a little bland. For some reason, the sound volume was so low I couldn’t appreciate the drops and he seemed to avoid playing big bangers to get the crowd going.

Last weekend was definitely a different story. I’ve listened to some great Adrian Lux mixes online and thought I’d give him a second chance. The guy just signed a new residency at Surrender Nightclub in Vegas so I know he has some worthwhile stage presence. Not to mention his perfectly quaffed hair puts Justin Bieber to shame.

When he took the stage at Hoxton, it wasn’t long before the venue turned into a plurlife frenzy. Like many Swedish DJ’s, Lux seems to have a knack at combining pop vocals with electronic tones. He caters well to the mainstream EDM enthusiast.

Although he’s not new to the scene, Lux released his first album just this year. It’s a good listen so I recommend checking it out. If you aren’t familiar with his work, you’ll most likely find some recognizable radio tunes on it.

26 years old, up-and-coming, and touring the world – Lux is on the right track. Already added to my New Years playlist, can’t wait until his next Toronto show.
