The Reason Y

Second State | Break New Soil | Octopus Recordings | Watergate Berlin / exclusive booking G / A / S

A mix of creativity, ingenuity, and intensity are the key components to create the fascinating Techno of the “The Reason Y” and although 2015 marked the beginning of this new project from Frederik Laaser, The Reason Y has, in a short time created a heavy buzz with his mind-blowing music, high energy gigs and a top notch event ’TRY Land’.

“Feeling the vibe and connecting with the audience is what keeps me going. Those magic moments created by Techno is the primary reason I am here doing this”.

Frederik was born in the northern part of Germany and grew up in the city of Schwerin where he decided to spend all his time and money buying vinyl and honing his mixing skills before finishing High School and moving to Berlin.

“Music always played a big role in my family. Between my Mom’s encouragement to push me to play a musical instrument and the big independent music collection of my Dad, music always had a profound influence in my life. “

With little effort, Frederik knew in which direction he was destined to go. With this type of musical background and a deep passion for hunting restlessly for new and outstanding music, it was only natural for him to find his way behind the controls.

Before the founding of “The Reason Y“ Frederik used to play under several other pseudonyms for more than 10 years starting with gigs in 2006 at his local Club Komplex and eventually at Fusion Festival in Germany which would groom him to find his way onto the map of the international Techno scene of today.

Over the last few years he’s refined his own style and signature to engage the audience in any environment no matter the time. His experience and knowledge behind the mixer as well as being an avid raver in the crowd has helped him to spread and unfold his creativity in the studio as well. Quickly his own productions caught the attention of massive acts such as Pan-Pot, Gregor Tresher and Sian from Los Angeles. Releases on Second State Audio, Octopus Recordings or Break New Soil Label, to name just a few, helped Frederik to spread his sound across the globe finding his name on Festivals such as HYTE or Sunwaves and renowned clubs like Labyrinth in Belgium to Loft Club in Germany.

He also can call himself a resident of the famous Watergate Club in his hometown Berlin, where he is hosting his own event called TRY Land sharing the decks with legends like Nicole Moudaber, Ilario Alicante and Technasia.

Right now Frederik spends most of his time in his studio working on new material as he continues on his path to exposing the world to the trademark sound of The Reason Y. May the music be with you and see you on the dance floor soon.
