‘Love Letter’ – Luco, Moon
Luco is a DJ/Producer who started at the age of 11. He is based in a small village in the Netherlands near Utrecht. He was born on the second of June 2000.
When he was only 11 years old it all started. This because his older nephew just got a new DJ-set. First his nephew did all the music during friends and family parties but soon after when he saw him playing he wanted to play the music. That’s when his nephew told him how to DJ and that’s how it started.
He got to high school and was already DJ-ing. In high school he met a friend who knew how famous DJs like Martin Garrix and Afrojack made their music. The program was called fl studio. He started making music in the software and every day he learned something new and got better.
‘Oh, Doctor’ – dolorifics

‘Light The Way’ – Tobe Baer
Born in 1991 to a German Mother and Canadian Father, he grew up amongst his international family, living all over the world (Canada, California, India, Germany), Tobe Baer was exposed to a variety of influences. The son of two musicians, he began singing and writing his own songs at a young age. In fact, the guitar he still carries today was a special gift from his father.
In 2010, at the age of 18, he began recording demos at his brother’s recording studio. However, it was not until nearly 7 years later, after graduating with honors and a BA in Bioengineering from UC Santa Cruz, and with 3 years of special education teaching under his belt, that he realized that his one true calling was to make music. He dropped everything and moved to the south German Alps, literally living in his brother’s studio for nearly a year singing, playing, recording, and perfecting his craft as a songwriter and producer. In 2018, Tobe Baer moved to Brooklyn, where he currently resides. Tobe Baer is currently preparing to tour for the release of Light the Way.
