DJ / producer LOCA, the alias and alter ego for Dutch international football star Jürgen Locadia and a current striker with Premiership club Brighton & Hove, is poised to announce a brand new release with the arrival of R&B / house tinged club stomper ‘5 AM’ due this summer.
LOCA says: “The record reflects a new time in my life, it’s a fresh start and a new sound that I’m creating. It’s the perfect beginning from the new Era, the new LOCA.” The young prodigy made his mark with Eredivisie club PSV Eindhoven, scoring a total of 45 goals in 127 appearances before making a club record fee move to England. An avid producer and musician, LOCA draws inspiration from a myriad of influences from house, techno, hip-hop, soul and funk – drawing comparisons with artists like Diplo, A-Trak, Rich The Kid, Tyga etc. His debut EP ‘Purple Art’ in 2018, is a testament to that, picking up support from various tastemaker blogs and BBC 1Xtra.
LOCA is now pushing towards his passion of music, ready to bring a fresh perspective to the DJ/Artist sound, showing there is no box he’s trying to fit in, he is creating it.
