Producer and purveyor of quality leftfield house music, UK artist Laurence Guy has amassed a collection of loyal listeners and tastemakers, all of whom are united in an appreciation for his outstanding abilities.
Emerging, like many young UK artists, from the grassroots of genres such as D’n’B and Dubstep, he has always been keen to explore his own personal artistic vision. Delving into different musical routes and testing new sonic directions has kept Laurence at the forefront of a scene where trends can change quickly and leave others behind.
The first, complete culmination of his artistry came in the form of his critically acclaimed debut album on Church Records in 2017. “Saw You For The First Time” followed a string of admired EPs and projected his name to new heights. The release was lauded by many beloved selectors and figure heads, most notably by esteemed producer and DJ, Move D, whose enduring support of Laurence’s releases provides an assured stamp of approval. Never one to stand still, Laurence followed this success with an EP on renowned Japanese label Mule Musiq “All I See Is Her” and most recently a standout debut mini-album for Sweden’s finest Studio Barnhus, which was every part the mature and seasoned follow up all had been hoping for.
A restless digger, Laurence can be found rummaging through the dusty crates of his local charity shops looking for samples to expand his sound palate, some of which have made their way onto his edits label Accidental Pieces. With such an active pursuit of music both old and new, Laurence has established himself as a selector, playing globally at some of the best venues and festivals around, as well as holding down a residency on London’s storied Rinse FM station. Guy is also developing himself as a live artist, both solo and as part of the Circle Of Live family, and has already been selected alongside some of the most notorious live acts in the world.
Laurence’s willingness to probe new styles and inspect unfamiliar spaces is part of what has led to him becoming one of the UK’s finest exports. He has surely become one of the most promising talents in our scene.
