_____ Hi,

Løyd is a Brussels based producer known for his raw, conceptual and divergent electronic music. Through his art and music he presents an inconvenient reflection on today's society.

In his early teens, Løyd would spend all day listening to rock music. He quickly became interested in learning the guitar and formed a band with his friends. At 16, he discovered electronic music by attending parties at the legendary Fuse nightclub, where he would eventually DJ at dubstep and drum & bass events.

The underground and alternative culture, coupled with his growing interest for synthesizers and sound design pushed him to experiment, Ableton Live being the perfect outlet to develop new ideas.

In this new world of musical experimentation and first successes (back then, his music featured in America’s Got Talent), sound engineering studies (finalised with a master’s in mixing and mastering) became a clear path for the artist, before launching his solo career in 2018 with the release of Broken.

Between 2018 and 2019, as the producer unveiled more tracks, the media started noticing his music. Lifetime became song of the week on Belgian radio station Tipik, Revolution (feat. OD Temper) and Cyborg (feat. Annie Sama) took the project to a next level.

Simultaneously, Løyd started touring in late 2018, further developing his setlist as time went on.

A Post-Apocalyptic Modern Art Gallery, his first album, was released on October 25th, 2019, and was critically acclaimed by the press and by indie blogs, with a live performance on television for the Decibels show, shot in March 2020.

Amidst the pandemic, Løyd started to focus on his sophomore album. The record was made in isolation and inspired by the movies he would watch during the day, before heading to his studio at night.

In 2020, the producer released Post-Apocalyptic Remixes, thus showcasing his songs reworked by other artists. He also released a remix of Wash Off by British band Foals, as well as an instrumental club-oriented experimental trilogy, Bunker.

End of 2021, Løyd released Save It and Rollercoaster (feat. Nito-Onna). Boys In Blue (with OD Temper) was released on January 28th along with an NFT collection of the same name.

Following the pandemic, most of the scheduled tour dates were pushed back to April 2022 - except for a show in the iconic Brussels venue Ancienne Belgique on the 26th of November 2021. Facing a packed room, the artist revealed a brand new version of Løyd LIVE, a show where his reworked discography is highlighted by a drummer and a complex light show that flashes on the beat, punctuated by electric guitar passages front stage that were greeted by the public.

Løyd released his sophomore album Joypark on March 11th, 2022. To celebrate, he did an exclusive performance on March 3rd in the Decentraland metaverse, invited by the Rocking Uniquehorns in their virtual nightclub.

In July, Løyd won the Rave Pigs remix competition by Boys Noize. The goal was to produce a new piece of music with audio stems coming from Rave Pigs NFTs. His track, a journey through electro, PC Music-like beats and techno, was uploaded to Youtube & Bandcamp and is expected to reach the download and streaming platforms later this year.

He was then invited by On-Chain Records to play an exclusive DJ set at the Rave Pigs party in the Voxels metaverse.

Løyd ended the year with a bang, playing a special live show at the Fly Away Festival in Italy before going back home to play at Cirque Royal Club in Brussels on the 21st of October 2022. He's currently working on new music.
