“I am known for working with a band of whizz kid producers, one of whom is a Grammy award winning legend. But who did we need to call when we were trying to figure out how to translate our record to the stage? That's right! A beautiful blonde slip of a girl by the name of Laura Escudé. She's hardcore, dude.” - Shirley Manson, Garbage
“Alluxe made this remix sound so different from the original: that's what I always look for. I like to be surprised and she definitely brought originality and novelty to the song.” Anthony Gonzalez, M83
When your everyday CV work reads like a who’s who in the music industry, you know you must be doing something right. International music producer, DJ, controllerist, violinist and live show designer Laura Escudé aka Alluxe has been an important figure in some of the most revered concerts around the globe, programming and designing shows for the likes of Kanye West, Jay Z, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Herbie Hancock, Cat Power, Bon Iver, Drake, The Weeknd, Silversun Pickups, Garbage, Childish Gambino and M83.
Laura's alter ego Alluxe is an electronic music producer/controllerist who uses the most futuristic, hi-tech gear. Her huge sound and fashion-forward look is complimented by her alluring stage presence complete with custom LED controllers, vocals and violin. She never fails to surprise as she mixes original compositions, improvised beats, and violin loops seamlessly.
Alluxe is fresh off her opening slot for Miguel on his Wildheart Tour. She has also opened for Garbage, alongside artists like Machinedrum and performed with Kiesza and Iggy Azalea. Having been commissioned by M83, Polica and Mr. Hudson for remixes, her signature sound is where hip hop meets bass music—banging, futuristc, growling electronic beats. The dramatic builds and gritty razor sharp percussion give a dense big-room cinematic feel, a nod to her classical training. Speaking of which, her violin playing can be heard on Watch the Throne, on Hit-Boy's mixtape, Big Grams, Kanye's Dark Fantasy Tour—the list goes on.
Her most recent track "Stay The Same" features rapper Mr. MFN eXquire and her new EP “Contrast” will be out in April 2016.
