Having been involved in electronic music since 2011, and a self-taught DJ/producer since 2001, Lao’s job is not only important in terms of purpose and experimentation; his labor seeks to open a space, create community and support talent. Since the mid 2000s, his work has focused on (propositive?) and experimental electronic music production for alternative dance tracks. Lao works with classical frequencies that intertwine with more local sounds to create danceable pieces of avant-garde which help shape its identity. He is a member of the Sello/NAAFI Collective, and the head of Sello Extasis Records. He formed part of the 2014 generation of Red Bull Music Academy, Japan. In 2015 Lao took his first European tour with 11 dates across 6 countries, which culminated with his performance at Barcelona’s 2015 Sonar Festival.
