“Huge underground vibes with an uplifting beat by Lukas Valenza”
But that is not all, we wrapped up a small interview with this great artist from Italy, we wouldn’t be suprised that in 5 years time we can add an album of Luks Valenza to the Techno Album top 15! Yoda Is Playing is a wonderful uplifting underground track which will be released together with “hugs” on Twisted Shuffle (a sub-label of Housepital with release from Vital Idiot), and it is a wonderful thing that they can add a talent like Lukas Valenza to the roster Don’t forget to follow Lukas Valenza on Social Media:
What was your first EDM track you have heard which made you fall in love with this genre?
Good evening and thank you very much for your interest, it is a great pleasure for me. The first EDM record I loved was Blue da ba dee by Eiffel 65, it was a gift from my dad and I think it activated something inside of me, I still remember that moment. I think it is one of the few records and EDM groups that I followed because I nearly immediately moved to more melodic and techno sounds. That’s also why I still remember that record very well…
When did you first started with producing music?
I first started in 2010 with my friend Alex Gee in a small academy in Foligno, Umbria.
The academy is linked to the Red Zone of Perugia.
My first release and show was in no-logik of the boss Daniele Petronelli
How did you came up with your DJ name?
Well, the idea of the name it was actually not mine, a girl recommended it to me and I liked it, so here I am with it.
Which DAW do you use and why?
I got started with cubase but I now use ableton live because it is the one that assures me the most and I also love the simplicity of the software. I have always produced records with it, so I don’t wanna change ?
What are your favorite plugins for synths, mastering and effects?
The best, but I rather keep it a secret 😛
If you could do a collaboration with any artist out there, what would be your top 3 (and why)?
First of all it would be Guti, I think he is my favorite artist, then Giorgia Angiuli and Gui Boratto. I like them all for the same reason, they all have an idea of music and party that I fully embrace, it would be an honor to be able to work with them one day
What do you usually drink when you are in the studio to get inspiration?
Italian coffee, but also some good red wine during the winter evenings
If you could travel the world as a DJ what would be the three items you will always bring with you in your bag?
My music and a picture of my beloved and I think that would be enough!
2016 just started, what can we expect in the upcoming year from you?
