dr lektroluv is the elusive dj behind the greatest series of electro compilations ever assembled by human hand and ear.
physically dr lektroluv is a cartoonish vision that is part-Kryton, part-Incredible Hulk (more of this later). he has evolved from blank-faced robot to planet-saving, universe-conquering spaceman over the six collections, demonstrating his superhero strength-sized dj dexterity.
in Spring 2002 the seminal LEKTROLUV compilation was released, showcasing a spot-on mix of I-F, Miss Kittin & the Hacker, Hell, Felix the Housecat and more. it was the soundtrack to a blissful summer, and i still play these songs now. i danced to them on carefree monday nights at trash, in the sun at sonar, in my bedroom...
dr luv's talent is to mix n match tunes from electro's infancy alongside tracks that are hot off the programmer to make them sound exactly as they should do. it's not just putting songs in order. i mean, any old ipod can shuffle tracks, but making them into something new is another (luv) story.
