Stimulated by his father’s musical influence LoPoll grew up listening to rock and playing the guitar. He enjoyed his youth this way, but he always felt there was something more to life than sitting under the trees near his house, chewing strands of hay..
Since his first gig, more than ten years ago, LoPoll felt that for him, the most important aspect of mixing is the transfer of energy from the vinyl, through the speakers, to the crowd. To accomplish this transfer, LoPoll doesn’t simply fuse the separate grooves in the tracks he plays into one continuously kicking set. He interrupts the flow with carefully crafted breaks to keep the crowd on the edge of their dancing shoes with expectation.
Last summer, celebrating his 10 year anniversary as a DJ, LoPoll made the next step in his musical career and started producing his own tracks. While he is still a novice in this field, his first tracks show he has the same approach to producing as he has to mixing; finding a harmony between the pumping kicks of techno and the funk of house.
