Born in a smokey bar with a martini in one hand and headphones in the other, DJ Luke Lombe epitomises the hedonistic party DJ…

Over the past decade of musical decadence, Luke has solidified his position as a quality DJ and is undoubtedly one of the darlings of the scene. Luke is consistently versatile, crossing many genres and seamlessly cutting and pasting layers of sound with innovative scratching and sampling. Luke’s musical journeys, enthusiasm, and style have seen him perform in some of the most exotic locations in the world.

From snowboard competitions in the French Alps to 6 Star Paradise in the Maldives. From the edge of the Australian Outback to the Champagne set of the Shanghai Bund. From the Full Moon Party in Thailand to the shadows of the Burj Al Arab in Dubai. From the Beijing Olympics to the beaches of Southern Taiwan. Luke has DJed there and had them dancing ‘till dawn.

He has already played in support and alongside some of the world’s finest acts including (but not limited to) The Prodigy, De La Soul, Martin Solveig, Mylo, Crazy Penis, Grandmaster Flash, Armand Van Helden, The Freemasons, BT, Hybrid, Jazzanova, Miguel ‘Migs’ and award winning Australian acts such as Sneaky Sound System, TV Rock, The Stafford Brothers, Aston Shuffle, Groove Terminator, Mobin Master, John Course, Madison Avenue, Kid Kenobi and Sgt. Slick… & the word has travelled.

Luke cites among his more memorable gigs playing for a plethora of A-list celebrities, including sets for Olympic Gold Medalists, Kylie Minogue, the cast & crew of NBC’s Today Show, Formula 1 champion Fernando Alonso, and Jamiroquai, who personally requested he play the after-show party. Other highlights include Australian summer festivals including Good Vibrations, A Day in the Park, Future Music’s ‘Two Tribes’, Shores On A New Year’s Day & the infamous ‘Dawn’ NY Eve parties.

Whether it’s a private party or a crowded festival, you will be witness to a smoothly mixed blend of funk’d up house & party breaks with smackdown loops, soulful vocals, crazy scratches, swing-ass grooves and a load of floor stompin’ action. But don’t just take our word for it…
