FRESH: ‘Wicked Game’ – Luk feat. Ellie May

Swiss DJ and producer Luk reworks “Wicked Game”.

by Christopher Smith

Swiss DJ and producer Luk has teamed up with Swedish vocalist Ellie May for a new version of Chris Isaak’s 1990’s smash hit “Wicked Game”, losing none of the mystery that surrounds the haunting tune and giving it a big kick from behind for the 21st century. The track follows his previous releases in 2019, “Don’t Cha” and “Don’t Fall For Me”.

Lukas aka Luk, discovered his love for electronical music back in 1997, when his older, DJ, brother handed him down his DJ-equipment and taught him to spin LPs. At the start Luk was obsessed with Trance, Techno, Acid and Progressive, but then his deep passion for LPs grew more and more and the whole system was relocated from the family living room to a studio.

Luk was allowed able to show off what his brother had taught him and his self taught skills with electro and housebeats in some favourite Clubs in Switzerland. His cheerful presence behind the mixer causes the crowd to be enthusiastic and attentive. Since the beginning of 2006 Luk was able to add several famous locations in his reference list. Clubs like Loft, Säulenhalle, Pravda, Prestige, Eleven, Säulenhalle, De Club, Moods, Nordstern Lifestyle, Fonda and many others just to mention a few. His next goal is to make and play records all over the world.

Ellie is a singer and songwriter who made her debut last year with the track “Roads” and followed that with “Winter” earlier this year. Luk, from Zurich, says his favourite artists include Kygo, David Guetta and Calvin Harris. He released his first commercial single “Now Or Never” last year, with LA based singer BAER on guest vocals. The pair also worked together on “Don’t Fall For Me” before Luk recruited singer Kimberley Krump to perform vocals on “Don’t Cha”.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
