Belgian superstar export Lost Frequencies, real name Félix De Laet, has soared to success in the international music industry over the past half-decade. First on the scene in 2014 with his global smash ‘Are You With Me’ which saw him flip an Easton Corbin, Country-style classic into a pop-meets-dance dose of originality, firmly cementing his name on the global stage. ‘Are You With Me’ would secure the #1 spot in 18 countries and see Lost Frequencies become the first Belgian artist to hit #1 in the U.K. Fast forward to 2023, where Lost Frequencies earned his first Brit Award nomination for his first ‘Best International Song’ Brit Award for the global hit with Callum Scott ‘Where Are You Now’. As well as hitting #1 on The Official Big Top 40 U.K. and The Official Ireland Top 50 charts after becoming the most-played song in the U.K., the single would also achieve Platinum status across 14 territories worldwide. ‘Where Are You Now’ also secured a Top 30 U.S. chart position and, to date, has received over 1.5 billion combined streams.
Evidence of Lost Frequencies’ calibre as a hit-maker is evident by his expansive music discography, which includes numerous early hits such as ‘Reality’, ‘Beautiful Life’, What Is Love’, ‘All or Nothing’, and ‘Here With You’, which all struck platinum status and swiftly secured top-end chart positions all across Europe with ease. Many of these singles became a part of his debut artist album ‘Less Is More’, a standalone body of work offering a timestamp of his musical mindset – think self-proclaimed “indie-dance”, with dynamic vocals, soaring melodies and stunning instrumentation.
Remixing top-tier names that include Miley Cyrus, Major Lazer, Ed Sheeran and Kanye & Estelle on the now-classic ‘American Boy’, this signature flair enabled Lost Frequencies to showcase that his unique electronic style can lend itself to multi-dimensional pop music, whilst still delivering an inimitable sound. Across his epic career, Lost Frequencies has also gone on to collaborate with James Arthur, Elley Duhé, X Ambassadors, Netsky and many more, showcasing the kaleidoscopic scope and Midas touch his sound can adapt to.
After receiving over 1 billion total music streams in 2018 (a feat he eclipsed in 2021 when he received over 4 billion streams), Lost Frequencies used 2019 to release his hotly anticipated sophomore album ‘Alive & Feeling Fine’. The album featured guest collaborators, including Aloe Blacc and James Blunt, and spawned numerous platinum-awarded singles, securing the #1 Dance Chart position in Belgium, France, Cambodia, and Hong Kong.
The ‘Alive & Feeling Fine’ album preceded the announcement of his first full-live tour, Lost Frequencies Live, which saw Lost Frequencies joined by a band of live musicians and vocalists, bringing his whole body of music to life in a live environment. Continuing up to the tail-end of 2022, Lost Frequencies Live toured extensively to sold-out dates throughout North America and Europe with 20 shows over three months, accumulating in a dazzling shows at Brussels Forest National stadium.
Lost Frequencies Live also treated fans at Tomorrowland to a unique showcase performance, in a festival-first for the concept. As a festival regular, Lost Frequencies takes over the mainstage with his DJ sets and hosts his arena, Lost Frequencies & Friends, yearly. With Lost Frequencies & Friends, he has previously hand-picked artists to perform alongside him, including Robin Schulz, Duke Dumont, Oliver Heldens, Nora En Pure, Duck Sauce, Acraze, Dom Dolla, Tchami and many more.
As a touring DJ, Lost Frequencies continues to rack up countless air miles. Pre-pandemic, he was the most-booked festival artist of any genre, making 49 appearances over the summer season that year, numerically beating names including The 1975, Lizzo and FOALS. Fast-forward to today, Lost Frequencies continues to dominate festival mainstages and tents worldwide, appearing at every major event, from Coachella to Lollapalooza, and EDC to Creamfields, plus, an honorable set at Rock in Rio to close out the main stage after Justin Bieber.
With a plethora of new music, plus a run of international DJ shows, 2023 looks set to continue illuminating Lost Frequencies’ presence worldwide.
