3LAU has become a billboard act in the dance music world, playing some of the biggest EDM festivals in the world. At just 24 years old, the young star focuses on progressive house and electro house. He’s received a ton of support from fellow DJs and the press alike, and we know he cherishes his fans with complete appreciation for their love of music.

The finance major-turned-DJ shines a new light on the new generation of DJ hopefuls, and he took time to chat with us prior to his show in Los Angeles. 3LAU takes us on a journey from his beginning, his family, and his current tour.

His track “How You Love Me” [Island/Casablanca] shot to the top of nearly every dance chart and became SiriusXM BPM’s most-played record of 2014. The artist is on tour right now with Zedd for his True Colors tour, but they won’t be in the country long. Don’t miss a chance to see the two, and check out the interview below!

Also, don’t forget to listen to his latest track, with Bright Lights, “Runaway”, out now on Dim Mak.
