Whether it be tracks or songs, garage to tech house, he manages to keep the dance floor aesthetic in tact. A peek into his discography reveals some the hottest underground cuts of the last 2 years.

Other titles such as his 2003 Grammy nominated remix of Jill Scott's "He Loves Me", are destined to be played for the next decade. In an age of hype, trend and purchased celebrity, Lum prides himself on being an artist with the ability to remain true to his roots while demonstrating commercial viability. Listen to his works and you will hear the influences that fuel his creativity. Funk based rhythms, Afro-Latin percussion, R&B melodies and New Wave sounds give his work a unique place in an industry mired in mediocrity. In addition to his abilities as a producer, Lum is also a songwriter. As a producer, he understands what a good and honest song can do to people's souls. It is the marriage of these two components that will ensure Lum a consistent place in the minds of an ever-restless market.
