Bio

Based on the Gold Coast, Australia. At age 15 Latour took interest in dance music and quickly saved up money from his after-school job to purchase a set of 2nd hand decks. After playing house parties for 2 years, Latour became half of dj duo “Snobs”. Snobs were given the opportunity to play in a club in their home town where they soon became the go-to resident DJs. (As the legal age to enter a club in Australia is 18 Latour had to lie and sneak in back doors as he was only 17). Snobs went on to rack up millions on YouTube views for their hit sounding mashups. A year later Latour was given the chance to become a resident at elsewhere in Surfers Paradise, one of the most respected and renowned dance music clubs in Australia. He has shared the bill with some of the biggest national and international DJs. Amongst 8 years of nightlife Latour has defined a sharp and comprehensive skillset behind the decks playing an array of house, tech house, techno & deep house with quirky twists leaving the listener never knowing what may be around the corner. As a DJ his skills are as visual as they are audible. This expertise has seen him booked for shows at very reputable festivals & venues around the country such as, Splendour In The Grass, Falls Festival, Babylon Festival, Circus Paradise Festival, Full Moon Down Under, onesixone, Nautic Giants, Pawn & Co, Nevermind Smallclub, MVMNT, elsewhere, Day Spa, Rattlesnake & many more. 2013 marked the first record signing Codie produced “Snobs – Star in A Cage” on German label Tiefblau Records. Since then Latour has seen music signed to the iconic Nervous Records (NYC), House of Hustle (BEL), Futurism (UK), CTM Recordings (UK), Trash Society (BRA) plus a remix for international touring DJ Chad Tyson on Billions. Productions that's seen the support from the likes of Vanilla Ace, Amine Edge & Dance, Tkay Maidza, Kito (ed banger), Chad Tyson, 105.7 Radio Metro & more. In 2014 Latour’s “Girls Like You Make History” record reached a Beatport #1 Indie Dance/Nu Disco chart compilation with House Of Hustle. 2017 saw a similar story with “Missing You” reaching #20 chart compilation Top 100 with House of Hustle again. 2018 saw Latour turn out his biggest record signing with Nervous Records “Cant Let Her Go”. While his songs are turning over hundreds of thousands of streams across platforms. Following suit 2019 is looking stronger than ever with upcoming releases already scheduled, his profile is only rising within the Australian scene.
