Biography – LVDS

Ushering in the new but flavored with the old, Netherlands-based Electro Swing producer LVDS charters a ‘no-boundaries’ approach to his productions. He has subsequently built up a name for himself as one of the genre’s rising stars to watch in 2021 and beyond.

Based in the South of the Netherlands, his childhood was packed with a rich pool of musical influences, all of which have helped form his sound that acts as a time warp back to the Roaring Twenties. Combining exquisite vintage samples with crisp drums and modern musical twists, LVDS is placing the final touches on his debut album.
