Raised in the coastal, industrial Australian town of Newcastle (better known as the Steel City), Loods aka Elliot Struck is an understated character with a big, raw and uncomplicated take on house music.
Having relocated to London and released a sold-out debut record on good friend Mall Grab’s Steel City Dance Discs label, Loods can now be found playing energetic and heartfelt sets all over the UK and Europe. Not one to take things too seriously, his DJ performances are built on pure hands-in-the-air house feelings. A slightly more refined sample of his palate can be heard on the monthly Steel City show on Netil Radio, which he co-hosts with label mate Salary Boy.
A collaborative follow-up release with Mall Grab, QUAALUDES001, featuring two anthemic house epics, sold out immediately after its mid April release and continues to make waves. With bigger things on the horizon, Loods is already one to watch in 2018 and beyond.
