In this Emerging Headliner interview powered by JBL, electronic producer and DJ Tita Lau talks to Headliner about her ‘70s rock influences, some of her big remix projects, and why she recently decided to make the transition from vocalist to producer...
Despite being a vocalist at her core, London-based artist Tita Lau’s recent transition to fully fledged electronic producer has already started bearing fruit. She’s just survived a “crazy” summer of relentless touring, and is eager to discuss more exciting plans on the horizon.
Inspired by ‘70s rock icons like Debbie Harry and Pat Benatar, Lau says she’s always been drawn to the energy that they bring to the stage: “I'm not one to just kind of stand and groove; sometimes I can be in that mood, but the majority of the time the music just completely takes over my body. I want to inject a bit of rock and roll energy into house and techno.”
Lau’s list of credits as a vocalist on some of the biggest house tracks in recent years, including Patrick Topping’s Turbo Time and Anton Powers’ Thinking About You, speak for themselves. However, it was during the lockdown in the UK when she really started experimenting and making her own music.
