From San Jose to Macau: Eugene Luu’s Journey as a Prominent Force in The EDM World
Electronic dance music (EDM) is a subgenre of the constantly developing music business that has gained popularity year after year (EDM). Unique electronic dance music performers with innovative sounds and production methods have emerged in recent years. The San Francisco Bay Area’s own Eugene Luu is one of the most promising new EDM performers.
During the height of the electronic dance music (EDM) era in 2012, Eugene Luu said in a recent interview, “I was inspired to become a music producer.” During that time, he learned to play the piano on his own and took guitar lessons as a youngster. As a result of being impressed by Avicii’s early work, he started heavily consuming progressive house. He has since subsequently released other songs that have become hits on streaming services like Spotify, such as “Contra” (co-written with Grammy nominee Feenixpawl) and “Serenus” (with the band The Mercenaries).
Eugene Luu’s work with Grammy-nominated Australian producer Feenixpawl on the track “Contra” stands out. Eclypse Records (a sub-label of Armada Music) released the track with support from Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Martin Garrix.
Eugene Luu said when questioned about his creative process that he usually starts with a simple melody and builds on it. He thinks that when he doesn’t give it too much thought, melodies and lyrics come to him easily. If a catchy riff or melody pops into his head, he’ll hum it out and record it so he may use it later as inspiration.
Eugene Luu, an independent musician and producer, thinks there’s always opportunity to improve and that progress shouldn’t be slowed down. Although he has accomplished much, he has encountered obstacles such as the time it takes him to complete a project because he isn’t satisfied with it or the emergence of a new subgenre that necessitates him to change his approach.
Armin Van Buuren played Eugene Luu’s “The Mercenaries” on his show A State of Trance, and he’s produced multiple albums on the revered electronic music label Armada Music. In 2015, he performed for the first time outside of the country when he was the featured act at Cuvee, the most prestigious nightclub in Penang. Since then, he has played in a wide variety of illustrious venues all around Asia and the United States, such as the LEX Nightclub at the Grand Sierra Hotel & Casino in Reno, Nevada, and the Avalon Nightclub in Hollywood, California.
While Eugene Luu has had much success as a musician, he is of the opinion that anyone may benefit from learning to play an instrument. As a means of getting their names out there and trying something different to stand out, he recommends that up-and-coming musicians approach smaller labels before expanding their professional networks.
Ultimately, the success of alternative EDM acts like Eugene Luu demonstrates that the music business is always developing, and that there is a place for everyone who is willing to work hard enough to make it. Eugene Luu’s perseverance in making groundbreaking music and appearing at high-profile events around the world is proof that passion, perseverance, and dedication can lead to success.
