The most interesting piece to me was musical ability of Laidback Luke’s family. He considers his father to be great guitarist and his brother an incredible drummer. You can tell that this household was filled with music during his childhood, and there’s a snapshot of the world-renowned DJ sitting on a computer in his teenage years with a high-end synthesizer next to him. Keep in mind that neither of these were standards in a household in the mid-’90s. He had the tools for success at his fingertips, and his frustration with not feeling he was as talented as his father and brother pushed him to use these tools to start producing his own music.
