Biography

Language: English

DJ Lucca began performing as a DJ in 1999, but the dance scene has interested her since she was 16, when she visited London. She began her career working for a promotions agency in the Boby Center, Brno, where the first Czech dance parties with Paul Van Dyk and Nick Warren took place in the mid 1990s.

The Czech Mersey agency took her under their wing in the year 2000; they booked her to play at their legendary parties such as Supersonic Garage or the festivals Metronome and Hradhouse. Theanks to her visit to the Red Bull Music Academy in Dublin, 2000, and numerous opportunities to play, boosted Luccas career, and soon became known as one of the Czech Republic’s most successful DJs. In 2002, she was acclaimed „Newcomer of the Year“ by the Czech magazíne Bassline and one year later, in 2003, she became the most popular DJ in the Czech Republic according to the Czech Dance Music Awards, which is regularly presented by the prestigous Czech magazine, XMAG. The same year, German magazine Groove, placed her 9th in the category of „Newcomer of the Year“.

This success didn´t come just like that. Lucca has a great talent of creating a story during her set, and is very experienced thanks to the fact that in 2002 she spun with a lot of great DJs during her time touring Spain, such as Marco Carola or Gaetano Parisio to name a few. It was at that time that her deflection from tech house to the harder Ital-Tech sound, which Lucca has admired to this day, had begun.

She is influenced by the melodic groovy techno of Italian producers. She cooperates with Davide Squillace in the studio, is interested in the productions of Danilo Vigorito, Markantonio, Rino Cerrone, Gaetano Parisio, Marco Carola, and among her favourites also belong Slovenian‘s Valentino Kanzyani and Umek, Scotsman Chris Cowie and Brazilian Renato Cohen.

In 2002, Lucca started building her own studio and one year later she released her successful debut Mirage 01 on Aquatrax. Harder tracks, Moon and Fastlife followed soon after for the German label, Definition. Mirage 01 became a massive hit by the end of 2003 and in January 2004 Umek did an excellent remix. The remix is among Carl Cox€˜s favourite tracks, who opened with it in several of his sets during spring 2004.

In September 2004, Lucca established her own label, Acapulco, where her subtly psychedelic track, Freedom, was released as a debut with Mirage 01 on the B-side.

From 2003, Lucca became part of Chris Liebing´s CLR booking. In 2003 and 2004, she toured South America (Columbia, Brazil and Argentina) twice.

She is now resident in Frankfurt’s U60311 club, Fabric (Ostrava, CZ) and often spins in the famous Spanish clubs La Real and Octopus (represented by the Spanish Hybernia booking agency).
