For those in the know, Lars Vegas is the alias for Lars Dales who has cemented a massive reputation for quality House grooves as one half of the dynamic duo Detroit Swindle. It was by a stroke of good fortune that Large Music landed his highly coveted debut EP just a few days into the new year of 2013. That is a story for the history books and will be told at length someday in the future. In the present, we focus on what Lars Vegas is all about..
1) We noticed from your bio that you have a long history in Amsterdam as a DJ. Can you tell us how and when it all began? Was House Music always your first love or did it take some time to gravitate to House? What are some of your first influential House records that really had an impact and you?
I actually started out playing Hiphop records. Hiphop is really my first love. After a while I started getting into House, and soon my love for House overruled pretty much everything. After a while of losing myself into Hardhouse and Techno, I really felt that the older styles had a more profound effect on me. But still, records like 'The Bells' or 'Manipulated' have earned their rightful place in my collection.
