It's been a successful but reflective year for French remixer, producer and DJ Laurent Wolf. The past 12 months have seen him release his new album 'Wash My World' in over 30 countries and it was preceded by the single 'No Stress', one of the biggest electro-house tracks of the year. Wolf also put out remixes of Kaskade and Robbie Rivera, who both returned the favour for 'Stress' and 'World'. Having toured heavily, Laurent has visited everywhere from Marrakech to Montreal, taking his good-time house music to some venues that are still off the beaten track. "I flew 20 hours forth and 20 back just to perform a set of two hours," he recalls about one such jaunt into the unknown. "There was a gig in Tunisia that I did with Behrouz and Tiësto and during my 90-minute set the power went off three times," he laughs. However, Wolf's constant touring has also caused him to think more and more about the impact that mankind is having on the planet. "I'm a workhaolic and I like good music and supporting the scene, but people need to be kinder to the world," he believes.
