LF SYSTEM recently released new single, ‘Big Sax’, on Ministry Of Sound. The Scottish DJ/production duo’s new track features a locked in 4/4 groove, piano stabs, and freestyling jazz-tinged saxophone solo.
After a packed summer season, including shows at Glastonbury, TRNSMT, Radio 1 Big Weekend, Creamfields, Hideout, Exit, Tomorrowland, multiple Ibiza dates, Reading & Leeds and their Brazilian debut at Green Valley, the duo have continued their 2023 live plot with a world tour including shows at Manchester, Warehouse Project; Barcelona, Razzmatazz; Berlin, Ritter Butzke; New York, Kings Hall; LA, Sound Nightclub; Sydney, Lost Paradise and Melbourne, Revolver.
They have an upcoming headline show at Village Underground, London on 17 November, before embarking on their Australia/New Zealand leg at the end of the year.
LF SYSTEM is West Lothian natives Conor Larkman and Sean Finnigan, who first met up playing football against each other as teenagers on rival teams. However it was only later when they reconnected whilst out in nightclubs that they truly bonded over their love of the music.
This soon led to them playing B2B sets at the Edinburgh club night FLY and eventually they began working together in the studio creating their own productions. Initially they shared their disco edits on SoundCloud, but soon started dropping their own tracks on the platform. One of those was their first single ‘Dancing Cliche’, which picked up early club support from Ewan McVicar, Elliott Adamson, Danny Howard and TSHA.
The big moments kept on coming, with a sold-out show at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh and being named as The Blessed Madonna’s One To Watch for 2022. The duo went on to have a big 2022 when their track 'Afraid To Feel' exploded. The track, spent eight weeks at #1, and is the longest running Number 1 dance record (equaling fellow Scot, Calvin Harris’s hit ‘One Kiss’). It has already exceeded 270 million streams and has been certified 2 x Platinum in the UK, as well as Platinum across Europe and Gold in Australia. It went on to win ‘Dance Track Of The Year’ at the BBC Radio 1 Dance Awards, and was nominated for ‘Song Of The Year’ at the 2023 BRIT Awards.
They followed up with more disco house cuts in 2023 with 'Hungry (For Love)', and 'Dancing Shoes (Take Me Higher)'.
