DJ Luca | Melbourne DJ
“Purveyor of deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere.”
That’s how Luca describes himself as a DJ. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Having grown up on on funk music (George Clinton, Morris Day), European electronica (Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, Gary Numan)… all which became infused with his own love for both hip-hop and video game music, Luca ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding basslines, and occasional vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling house beat.
Luca loves playing in nightclubs, bars and special events playing strictly vinyl, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. Since 2002 Luca has played in some of Australia’s biggest venues including residencies in Melbourne at the Lounge, The Laundry, Two Floors up, Room, CMoog (Byron Bay), Platinum (Gold Coast). Supported touring DJs including Aphrodite, Nick Warren.
“For me, it’s all about mood and a deep, hypnotic groove… playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date. “
