    Product Details


    Eric Lau is a London-based producer who has been busy making musical waves for others. He may well be a producer you've heard, but not heard of, by way of his productions for the likes of Lupe Fiasco, Dudley Perkins, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Guilty Simpson, Wildchild, Tanya Morgan, Hil St Soul, and a family of up n'coming artists who feature on New Territories, his debut solo album. His slick and edgy productions have turned the ears of Gilles Peterson (Lau appeared on his Brownswood Bubblers release of October 2006) and Fat City Records who released Eric Lau presents Dudley & Friends in January 2007. Tastemakers and peers like Benji B (BBC Radio 1Xtra) called Lau's soulful street sounds "Heavy!", Phonte (of Little Brother) added that Lau is "One of the illest beatmakers", Dudley Perkins (Stones Throw) said "His music did something to me," and Dego (of 4Hero) asked "Who the f$%k is Eric Lau!?" New Territories has a double meaning. It's the area in Hong Kong that the au family are from and regularly visit. "People have a vision of Hong Kong being sky scrapers and high rises everywhere," says Lau. "However, the area known as New Territories is full of mountain ranges, sea, villages and farm land. It's very peaceful and pure there, and these are qualities I try toincorporate into my production." The title also refers to the album and the global musical connections it made. "There are many young artists on the record and our roots are from around the world," explains Lau. "Even though we are from different backgrounds we approached the album with the same mindset and all want to help each other get to where we want to be. This record is a new territory for us as a group of artists, and I hope that it is, in turn, a refreshing listen." UK born Lau has only relatively recently got into music production, but delved-in neck-deep. Moving to London at the age of 19 his time at University there turned him on to the possibility of music as a way of life. "Just being in London, with an open mind, that's all it took," he explains. Now 26 years old, Lau is either in the studio, or can be found teaching at RollingSound, a youth-led multimedia education company. At RollingSound under-privileged inner-city kids get to learn music production, DJ-ing, video game design, photography, film and web design. With New Territories, Lau wants to make connections in China, particularly with the growing music scene in Shanghai. Lau has already made in-roads by way of a track he gave to Lupe Fiasco. Fiasco used it to produce a tune for Hong Kong movie actor, singer and entrepreneur Edison Chen.

    Comment: I Am so Amed to finally get a chance to hear this project, and for the world to finally get a chance to hear the sounds of Eric lau... 1st I heard him was on BTS Radio and the Guilty Simpson track "motorcity" I tried to recruite him for my new project but have been unsuccesful so far, even tho I am working with his peers (samiyam, etc)..... my 2nd Solo album after my Debut classic "Junk Planet" was just released Digitally Via RAWKUS RECORDS, and has made tremendous noise (espeiallyl the lead single "Betterman" (feat Median & VonPea) -produced by Illmind.... The Cd Version will be released in the next few months and will feature 5 tracks not on the initial digital release....hopefully Eric lau will have one of the slots for new tracks -=) for now you can pick up Crush Your System on I Tunes, Zune, Amazon,,man everywhere.. even on Myspace dot com /Dutchmassive or Eric is a beast..please support and pick up this project!!!!
