While Weber’s remixes have generated more than 200 million plays on Soundcloud and Youtube, his original tracks have reached the top three on HypeMachine on eight different occasions.
LCAW’s presence is not limited to online; he has also made an impact on the live scene: his performances drawing crowds of fans from around the world from LA to Melbourne. He’s already sold out his own headline tour, and regularly shares a stage with the biggest names in electronic music.
Staring at the Sun demonstrates LCAW’s playful, yet deathly addictive electronic production he is capable of. The song, which was released Aug 25th of this year, features an enchanting vocal from NYC based singer/songwriter, Sophie Hintze.
”Staring At The Sun’ has a clear message – If you feel trapped in a place or a situation you need to break free, pack up your things and just go. The Sun is quite symbolic in this picture, on the one hand it stands for hope, a better future, adventure; and on the other hand it is a burden. Staring directly at the sun for too long blinds you, leaving you on a path without navigation. The lyrics embrace a loss of direction. Hypnotised by yellow lines, moving faster than the speed of light, renegades without a plan. In the end it’ll be worth it.’
