Just Like Me

Just Like Me

The Boatpeople tend to stand out from what’s considered trending these days.His latest track, Just Like Me is definitely a track everyone can feel and relate to. The Boatpeople mixes his sharp sensible lyrics alongside the melodies to create the perfect track to vibe. The Boatpeople was born in France.As fate would have it, at age 15, Ludo met a local DJ on a football field. Impressed by Ludo’s passion and thirst for becoming a successful DJ, he taught him how to mix at the MANISA Hôtel in the coastal village of Flic-en-Flac. One day, he told Ludo that he was going to buy some equipment and come back later. He never came back, and Ludo was left in charge at the club. The rest is history. From then on, the stars aligned for Ludo, aka The Boatpeople. He met DJ Panic, a famous Manchester DJ who taught him the ropes and exposed him to broader international music culture, opening his mind and musical horizons.The Boatpeople continued mixing for years on the island, slowly improving his craft.Now, the term boat people refers to refugees fleeing their country for better horizons, onboard small makeshift boats. A term representing Ludo’s dreams and hopes at the time; leaving his island to rise, grow, develop, and explore new opportunities.So, in 1999, the young DJ decided to take a leap of faith and go to France, hoping to carve a reputation for himself on the French music scene.He began as a resident DJ in a bar in Lille but quickly became a guest DJ for big clubs in Belgium and exclusive Parisian parties. He started to partner up with talented musicians and singers, developing his unique and original style. The idea was to incorporate live artists into his sets when performing in clubs and festivals.Fast forward to 2010, the young artist launched a new concept; Electro Jazz nights (referred to as Electro Chic), in trendy places such as the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Lille.Driven by his passion and creativity, he also started to create and release remixes, including “Anyway” by Armand Van Helden. And his talent didn’t go unnoticed. The famous DJ heard the track and invited The Boatpeople to open his concert in Frankfurt. This was the beginning of a long list of successful collaborations with big artists such as Claptone, Mr. Oizo, or Amine Edge & Dance.During that time, Ludo also decided to create The Boatpeople Music Agency (BPM agency), a music production company for artists.‘’I wanted to create a crew with like-minded DJs and musicians that would take over the EDM music scene at events, festivals, and shows’’, says Ludo.
