Biography

Beat, sound, nightclubbing, this is Laurent Wolf’s universe.

Laurent Wolf soaks in this holy night-trilogy since his debuts, as for 12 years already, he forged his vinyls platinums in his Mantes La Jolie’s kid’s room. A whole life dedicated to the boom boom beat, the dance beat, electro music and 125 BPMs’s nights.

While making his first sets in a disco of the Parisian suburb, Laurent is “tracked down” by the manager of the Queen, who proposes him a weekly disco night in this mythical night club of the Champs Elysees (“a paradise for the DJs, especially at that time. We removed handcuffs and we just had fun. It was a brilliant school”).

Electro’s nights, foam’s nights… From 1992 and during 10 years, Laurent plays at the Queen till three nights a week. The Queen is for Laurent a real stepladder for a discographique career.First of all, these are the remixes which are of a redoubtable efficiency who will forge Laurent Wolf’s image as a fickle, dynamic DJ who listens and take care of his fans.

After several years to remix for the others, it is the click in his mind : Laurent wants to produce music under his name. ” The difficulty with the remix, it that we are obliged to make it from a song which already exists and it is a constraint because we cannot be creative. ” In 1995, “House Train”, number 1 of the clubs, is the first evidence of Laurent’s talent for house music production which is often tinged with an avant-gardist électro sound.

But Laurent Wolf’s Big Bang will be “Saxo”, dancefloor hit all over the world and which will be, with “Calinda”, the champagn of his first album, “Sunshine Paradise”, (double CD) which imposes Laurent Wolf’s style : a rhythmic music, with worked drums, powerful basses and nervous percussions.
