Born in Istanbul and living in New York since age 12, Lorant spent the summer before college working for idol and friend Danny Tenaglia. After some time at the Fashion Institute of Technology, he got a job at the legendary Twisted Records where he acquired a firsthand look into the business side of dance music. At the label he helped promote Yoko Ono’s Walking On Thin Ice and Oscar G. & Ralph Falcon’s Dark Beat to a Billboard No. 1 spot. During this period, his remix of The Hook by Geoff Gains would exhibit his passion for music production.
In 2006 Lorant released his first single Hot Flash on Twisted, earning him recognition from URB magazine, followed by a remix of the house classic Divas to the Dancefloor for Junior Vasquez’s JVM label. Adding to the same year was his mix of the club hit Shadows of Your Love by Krystal Cruz. He has recently reworked acid house master DJ Duke’s Blow Your Whistle for SoundGroove Records and Def Jam poet Emanuel Xavier’s Legendary for Hades Music. Lorant’s last three releases, The History of Love EP and the singles The Saint and Icekeleton (feat. Black Cracker), are available on Royal Advisor Records, label he launched in 2010 to introduce fresh NYC talent to the world in all spectrum of dance and electronic music. Track he produced for RAR artist SAMN titled "In My House" gained attention from Fader magazine in 2012 along with many indie music and nightlife blogs.
