If it’s been a while since you've really cut loose on a dance floor – but were just waiting for the right opportunity – you may want to get yourself to LOVE on Friday, March 21 as Laidback Luke will be spinning at the Carle Place club starting after 11:30 p.m.

Also known as Lucas Cornelis van Scheppingen, he was born in Manila and raised in The Netherlands – but his global experiences continue to expand as his work as a celebrity DJ and producer has made him a world-tripping, in-demand nightlife personality (he'll be following his LOVE appearance with stops in Toronto; Miami; Lyon, France; Arnhem, Netherlands; Portrush, Northern Ireland; and London before May arrives).

Luke is especially notable for the several moments of purposeful tension he creates during his sets, often pulling the biggest part of a beat to the far edge of a session’s audio precipice – all the while teasing those in attendance with vocals and crunchy electro elements to an extreme – then letting the beat snap seamlessly back, sending many in attendance into a fist-pumping fury.

Unfortunately, getting a taste of his efforts will require an immediate response by interested parties, as the first two rounds of early advance tickets for the upcoming Friday show are already sold out – but (as of this writing) there are still some $30 general admission spaces for sale at
