“That’s what DJs originally would do and why people would go to nights, just to discover new music with a mixture of different genres.” – Luke Hippolyte

VANCOUVER – Based in London, UK, Stööki Sound is just one element of the Stööki creative group lead by DJ Lukey and Jelacee, known by their friends as Luke Hippolyte and Jamal Alleyne respectively. Organically coming up through the London UK bass, grime and hip hop scenes, Stööki Sound has performed all around the world from the smallest sweaty underground clubs to one of the largest EDM festivals in the world: EDC in Las Vegas.

Growing up as DJs in London’s nightlife scene, the duo has become well known for their nuanced trap sets that educate audiences on their collective backgrounds in music. “I definitely feel like [our sets are] more of an old school approach to DJing,” shares Hippolyte while in LA. “That’s what DJs originally would do and why people would go to nights, just to discover new music with a mixture of different genres. It’s more enjoyable for us as well performing because it gets a bit zany if you were just going to play, like I don’t know, the latest sort of bangers that every DJ is gonna play.”

Stööki’s latest incarnation of their set, however, has come to include a live band with Hippolyte on the decks and Alleyne on the mic rapping live. “I definitely think it was natural the way we approached our Stööki Sound sets. The aspect of us being producers as well means that we can play our own edits and some things that people haven’t heard [outside of what we] play at our shows.”

With a history of working with other likeminded producers like Muramasa, Troyboi and Hucci, the duo is ready to open themselves up to collaborate with more artists outside of their usual producer circle. “We’re definitely open to working with any artists from different spheres as long as it makes sense,” says Hippolyte. “As long as we both bring our [unique] styles to it. The Troyboi track is a good example where we were able to do that and just kind of get in the studio together and vibe off each other. Yeah we’re always open to working with artists that people might not expect us to. Just depends if it works.”

Stööki Sound performs at Fortune Sound Club May 5th.
