Laura van Dam

Being labeled ‘The Future of Dance’ by rising star Laura van Dam, based in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is making one move after the other.

Signing her music to renowned progressive house labels like Anjunabeats, Armada, Epic247, and AFTR:HRS, Laura has graced the biggest festivals and venues across the globe. Her performances at Tomorrowland, Solar, Printworks, Ultra (both Europe and Miami), Sunburn, A State of Trance Festival, Parookaville, and Ushuaïa Ibiza have captivated audiences worldwide. Laura's unique music style, which combines deep progressive sounds with dark energetic beats, positions her as a rising star in the electronic music scene.

Laura's journey into electronic music began at the tender age of 12, and her passion quickly evolved into a promising career. Her first major breakthrough came at 17 when she won a prestigious DJ contest at the Blue Marlin in Ibiza. Inspired to pursue her passion professionally, Laura honed her skills by graduating in "Electronic Music Production" and studying "Audio Engineering" at the SAE Institute in Amsterdam. This educational foundation allowed her to elevate her music and performances, leading to her first releases on influential progressive house labels like DOORN Records, Protocol Records, and Smash Deep.

Laura's talent caught the attention of Deezer, who requested her to remix Beethoven's classical piece 'Moonlight' in celebration of his 250th birthday. The remix was released through DOORN Records, helmed by Sander van Doorn, where Laura also served as label A&R.

In 2022, Laura expanded her creative vision by signing with Epic247 for worldwide management and exploring vocal melodic releases through Epic247 Recordings. Tracks like 'Into the Light' and 'Better Than This' paved the way for her debut on the 'Anjunabeats Rising EP' with 'Set Me Free,' followed by singles 'This Love' and 'Take Me Away.' Her success in the trance and progressive charts led to opportunities such as mixing the Anjunabeats Rising Residency Mixes.

Laura's talent did not go unnoticed by Armin van Buuren, who signed her tracks 'The Journey,' 'Needing You,' and 'True Colors' with Chris Howard to his Armind imprint. This collaboration led to Laura frequently supporting Armin van Buuren and Above & Beyond worldwide, with notable performances at Printworks in London, Wondersala Riga, and Ushuaïa Ibiza.

In late 2023, Laura made her debut on Tiësto's AFTR:HRS imprint with the bass-driven techno release 'Dawn,' and closed the year with 'Blow the Speakers' via Epic247 Recordings, one of the most anticipated IDs from the previous festival season.

Laura van Dam continues to receive support from major tastemakers in progressive house, techno, and trance, including Armin van Buuren, Eelke Kleijn, Dom Dolla, Above & Beyond, Tiësto, Maddix, Farius, Sander van Doorn, Andrew Rayel, MORTEN, Marcus Schulz, Nicky Romero, and Oliver Heldens / HI-LO. As one of the most promising female electronic artists today, Laura van Dam is definitely an artist to watch.
