For 16 years now, Luke has been mixing dance music live and producing music and events with a large variety of dance floors around the world. With Luke’s innovative and dynamic DJ/Live sets, depending on the crowd you may encounter an eclectic mix of sounds from around the world with elements of soulful underground techno/tech house, tribal/world music, slower tempo bass music and dancy downtempo, dub, funk, etc. Catering to each particular crowd, Luke’s sets are geared toward an empathic and warmly affectionate journey to a place of body movement, inspiration, unification, and play.

Luke has had numerous releases in the top 100 of Beatport’s tech house, breaks, electronica, and chill out charts, as well as #1 at Addictech.com. Luke’s remix of Booka Shade’s “Regenerate” was released on Booka Shade Records and was featured on Anthony Pappa’s cover mount CD of DJ Magazine.
