Lai Power (AKA DJ Superstar DJ, AKA DJ Hung Parliament, AKA DJ SoulSeek, AKA DJ Cash in Hand) 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 Disco to ambient soundscapes and the latest esoteric pop from around the world. They also play with the DJ collectives Selextorhood and Energy Flow. They call their unique sound Psychedelic Brutalism.
- The film project I've been working on just made the news. It's been so incredible. I made all the music which features so prominently in the film. On the weekend we've got a series of three sold out screenings with live score. Feel so lucky to be a part of this amazing experience. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-birmingham-62982805
