Biography

“It’s been a crazy ride,” she says, “but this is only the

beginning.”

Electro-house goddess DJ Lea Luna has been on the up-and-up since

1999, rocking many a crowd from underground to commercial, across the US and abroad. Her white-hot enthusiasm on stage and in the studio reflects

her 9 year career, which has been gaining

exponential momentum since she first stepped up to the decks as a tiny

teen. “I’m taking my music further this year than I ever thought I would

have when I first started spinning records. Its unreal how many

different avenues there are inside electronic music: how many

subcultures, how many diversely beautiful artists, fans and enthusiasts

there are. After having the privilege of exploring this world and the

music in it, I’ve become a pioneer. I’m writing, collecting, and

spinning styles that don’t even have names to them yet. This is truly a

divine epiphany, and it’s redirecting my course in life as a

professional musician.”

What do white-collared europeans at the Playboy TV International

event in Lisbon, Portugal have in common with 4,000 blinking pink

furry-collared raving teens at Kandifest in San Bernardino, California?

Absolutely nothing, you might think, but last year Lea Luna stood staged

in front of both crowds and illuminated them with a powerful house set,

and from each culture she provoked the same ecstatic positive energy.

Everywhere she goes, they dance. You may have seen her catching the warm

breeze on a island sound stage built right on the Caribbean Ocean at her

set in Cozumel, Mexico, or caught sight of her on television spinning

atop the cold snowy slopes in Breckenridge, CO at the North American

Open ski tournament. Maybe you met her after her set backstage at a

corporate sponsored breast cancer benefit in San Diego, or behind flimsy

caution tape at an underground party inside a closed skate park in Reno.

Whether you see her rocking it on the playa at Burning Man or pool-side

at Wetgrooves WMC, sonic chameleon Lea Luna “fits in the mix”

everywhere. She’s played underground tracks alongside artists like

Frankie Bones and Heather Heart. She’s dropped commercial rock/reggae

remixes opening for legends Steven Tyler and Chuck Berry. The list goes

on and on. From concert stage, to super-club, to upscale lounge, to

amphitheater, to festival, to warehouse… Lea Luna has sewn together

the seams of a multifarious global vibe with her own inner resonance,

keen track selection, and artistic personality.

“This is what music as the universal language was intended to

imbue. I’m into not only meshing cultures of people, but musical

styles, and forms of art. I especially love the fashion element. Whether

the event calls for a cocktail dress, pink wig, swimsuit, parka, or

spacesuit… I’m there, in my own representation of it. The same goes

for music. When you ask the average guy what kind of music he listens

to, he’ll tell you he likes a bit of everything. Doesn’t everyone? I’m

becoming the kind of artist who flirts with pop while married to

electro… yes, all of a sudden I feel myself leaning toward

pop-stardom! I’ve been writing and recording pop hooks, I’m practicing

choreography with 6 professionals that are now my dance team, I’m

collaborating with all kinds of talented recording artists, and I’m

STILL constantly bumping old school underground vinyl in my basement.

You’ll hear the underground in the framework of my new music. To those less traveled, this could look like an identity crisis, but I’m piecing

together a hybrid. Its hard to picture how all this branching out would

actually refine me, but let’s put it this way: the idea of putting

peanut butter and jelly together may have seemed unconventional at

first, but it was actually a stroke of deLicious genius. Right now I’m

in the studio making pop/rock/electro/downtempo sandwiches, and its

exhilarating. Soon my new original style will be coined and polished,

you’ll hear me on the radio and know that its unmistakably me.”

Lea Luna has very impressive international press. She is featured in a major ad campaign for Tascam, seen in magazines such as EQ, Electronic Musician, and Guitar Center.

She has had numerous solely-featured event ads, interviews, and blurbs hailing her appearance in dozens of US cities, as well as magazine, billboard, tour guide, and television representation overseas.

Her broadcasts include: internet radio Teklab.fm racking up

millions of listeners worldwide, Clearchannel’s Denver-based 93.3 FM,

KGNU Boulder, and a past history of college radio at UCLA and Metro

State University in Denver. Her CD is frequent to the speakers in many

high-fashion storefronts, California fashion shows, and even 24 Hour

Fitness spin classes.

Watch out this year for Lea Luna’s new release,

including radio edits and electronic remixes co-produced by Mike

Hiratzka (as heard in the sounds of DJ D:Fuse, DJ Rap, and Kristy

Thirsk) and J. Scott G. (formerly of Deepsky, currently Soul in the

Machine, remix artist for Madonna, Frank Sinatra and more). Many

other collaborative efforts are to be announced.

Describing Lea’s upcoming new release – LUNANIMOUS is one voice, one

massive. The massive is speaking one universal language; at every rock

show, night club, house party, through every radio station, in every

ipod. Lea Luna’s LUNANIMOUS is

a new dialect of the rock-tronica tongue that both the underground and

overground massives can fluently express.

“Love and music are the only universal languages, and I speak them both

so fluently and intermittently." -Lea Luna

Rave reviews for Lea Luna:

“filthy hotness…” “…electro house seductress Lea Luna”

-Express Milwaukee

“…She draws energy from the dance floor, skewers it on the mood of the

moment and jettisons the amplified results back to the masses. Luna’s

impulsive tendencies — sticking a wad of ‘80s pop onto a wall of

electro breaks, for example — allow her to eclipse the crowd’s

expectations…” -Westword magazine

LEA LUNA!!! STOLE THE SHOW!! Everyone was talking about her, great set,

great track selection, she even dressed up… She’s definitely a

keeper…” -Austin nightclub promoter after her set at Skye lounge

“We keep talking about your set. It was like a Ferrari humming

down the highway. You were totally in nsync. I loved what you did.

You were the top of the charts. I would have loved to have had you

on TV with Mickey Nightrain.

Back to ART now!” -Laurence Gartel, Internationally renowned digital

media pop artist, photographer, producer, director, promoter, and

publisher.

“I cant speak highly enough of her. If she were a golfer, shed be on the

PGA Tour. Shed be a contender. Out of all the people I

saw not only at MASSIVE but all around, LEA stands out. Easy smile, nice

girl, respectful, but also “Bowled a perfect game” with

her music. I couldnt get over her. Some people think the “louder” you

play the better someone is. She took the stage like Leonard Bernstein

would conduct an orchestra. (Am I using enough metaphors?) Personally, I

think this girl has what it takes." -Laurence Gartel (to East Music

group)

“Lea is perfect on the art of mixing, better than many DJ guys.

Good looking girl behind the decks. When she meets the right people at

the club, she can shake the dance floor combining her art in mixing the

right electro tracks. Beautiful tunes and vibes with her progressive

side of being a true artist.

Her music is very on front, for open minded people, and when she finds

the right public, the party never stops… " -John Canada, Portuguese

promoter and radio show host
