Luke Rowell is best known for the high-energy synthesised pop and luxurious vaporwave music he has created under his Disasteradio and Eyeliner aliases. Disasteradio’s ‘Gravy Rainbow’ was a synth-pop hit, and the Eyeliner releases are regarded as seminal examples of vaporwave.

Rowell has had a lifelong fascination with “high-tech sounds made on cheap tech”. He has spent the last two decades recording and releasing increasingly sophisticated computer music and performing it to audiences across the globe.
