Orb Podcast 054: Luke Hess

Born in 1980 in Metro Detroit and subject to the city’s mid-90s warehouse parties, Luke Hess has harnessed a deep appreciation for electronic music and the expression of the underground movement. His background in mathematics and engineering has given him a scientific approach to the dancefloor, using frequencies, tones, and soundscapes to transform surroundings and moods.

With over 15 years of DJ experience and many notable live sets across the world, Luke Hess is regarded as a perfectionist on stage. For the latest Orb Podcast, he offers a detailed, hypnotic and soulful mix that is inspired by the DeepLabs parties in Detroit this year. “The mix highlights some of the tracks that were played at the parties and captures a bit of the vibe during those nights,” adds the artist.
