In 2019, Lourens started writing his own songs for a new quartet: LOUW quartet. It soon turned out that the music is a mix of Jazz and Hip-hop, with the groove in the lead role. Inspired by what great artists like Ibrahim Maalouf, Anton Goudsmid, Robert Glasper and Louis Cole do with rhythm and groove in their music, Lourens strives for music that the audience unknowingly rocks, wobbles and taps on their seats. 'They know how to challenge themselves musically and rhythmically, without making the music more inaccessible to a large audience. That is only because there is so much soul in their game. These musicians tell a story that touches people. That is the ultimate goal and I want to achieve that with my music as well". The music Lourens recently wrote is dominated by the physical developments he has been going through for a year. Through a sport and diet program, Lourens has lost a lot of weight and has actually discovered a new physical force within himself that is adjacent to being reborn.
Lourens brings a various programme, including never performed music. His songs are energetic, intense and cheerful. In addition, he provides a few of his favorite jazz standards with a twist. From ballads to boiling hip-hop grooves and from explosive solos to whispering tones. Together with a fantastic young line-up, Lourens tries to bring contrast and continuity together.
