Eric Lau is a London-based producer, known for his work with an array of international artists such as Lupe Fiasco, Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Guilty Simpson, Oddisee, Muhsinah, Kaidi Tatham, Wildchild, Olivier Daysoul, Tanya Morgan, and a family of artists from London including Floating Points, Finn Peters, Tawiah, Rahel, Fatima, Szjerdene, and several others.
Lau’s debut album ‘New Territories’, released through Ubiquity Records (LA) to great critical acclaim was nominated as one of Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Top Albums of the Year 2008, and established Eric as a key name at the forefront of progressive British production talent. 2010 saw the release of the V2 E.P through Kilawatt featuring Washington DC’s finest Muhsinah and Oddisee fused with musicianship from Bugz in the Attic maestro Kaidi Tatham. His most recent full length release, Makin’ Sound, an instrumental album on Kilawatt, required a second vinyl pressing after selling out in two weeks, and one of his proudest recent achievements, the single Eric Lau & Friends “See and Under Standing”, raised a substantial sum for Save The Children and saw his success continue throughout 2010.
In addition to Lau’s production’s work he is also a promoter and DJ, holding down residencies (Pause at Market Place, Tomorroww at the C.A.M.P.), featured guest slots around the world, and mixes (BTS Radio). Eric also feels very strongly about supporting young people and emerging talent, and regularly mentors and lead music workshops across London.
2011 looks extremely busy for Lau, who is set to release a follow up to the much loved instrumental LP Makin’ Sound with a new offering called Quadrivium. He will also start work on his second full album entitled One of Many. You can also expect many collaborations, production work and remixes for several other artists.
