My name is Lai, I’m a chaotic mess of cables, synths and old records. I’m a DJ/producer/composer/mixer. I do a lot of DJing but I also make my own music and compose for films. Welcome to my site!
DJ Superstar DJ Lai Power hails from the motor city of Birmingham, UK. Uploading echoes of interstellar dancefloors into your cyberbrain. Future sounds from the ninth dimension to deep cosmic dance music from the misty past. All musical powers to the people. Proletariat dance music. Guaranteed to make you dance.
Lai Power (AKA DJ Superstar DJ, AKA kawaiipunk) is an musician, producer and DJ from Birmingham UK. They first found notoriety as a guitarist in the teenage garage band The Last Bullets. Later they played and produced with a scrappy indie group called Tie Dye Terrorism and keyboards with maverick avant garde electronic band Heath Pleasure.
However, they are perhaps the legendary electronic pop group Boy With Wings who broke up on the cusp of success due to interpersonal difficulties. Like Ziggy, they had to break up the band. During this time, Lai discovered clubbing whilst on pills in a big tent listening to sets by Four Tet and James Holden and their world was forever changed.
Now producing electronic music and DJing, they have built up a cult following in Birmingham and elsewhere for their high energy sets. Their sets are a whirlwind trip through visions of dancefloors through time. They play everything from Chicago and Detroit legends to David Mancuso deep disco to ambient soundscapes and the latest esoteric pop from around the world. They also play with the DJ collectives Selextorhood and Energy Flow and are a member of Saffron.
I would like to pay my deepest respects to the musician’s, artists, writers, creatives and DJs of colour who are a constant inspiration to me through my life.
I play a lot of music of black origin and I would like to give my to those who have struggled for freedom through the horrors of the past and those that continue the struggle for a better and more equal world today. Reparations now!
