MOAI Platform Europe welcomes Rafa Lucas

 

Rafa Lucas, born in Alberique in 1978 (Valencia), this young Valencian started his musical career at the end of the 90’s where he frequented one of the best clubs in Valencia: Puzzle. There, influenced by the Dance, Trance & Progressive styles that were on the rise, he took an inordinate interest in working as a dj.
In this club he met Juanjo Benaches and Javi Presi who greatly influenced his style and his way of DJing and structuring his sets and where he started to get to know the musical styles that were appearing in Valencia such as House, House Progressive & Techno.
Over the years he got a small residency in a small club in his hometown and soon after, he was in the booth of the fashionable after party in Valencia: Sunday (After de Puzzle). This allowed him to do several sets on the main dancefloor of Puzzle, sharing the booth with one of his mentors and friends: Juanjo Benaches.
Over time he adapted the new musical trends that were emerging to his sets such as Electro-House, Minimal and Minimal-Techno. In a very short time he toured and worked in many of the best clubs and parties in Valencia: Apache Xativa, Apache Valencia, Spook Club, Hotel 82, Hotel 82 Summer (Ribarroja), Tremenda Xativa, Seven, K-ramelo…etc sharing the bill with great international and national DJs like Carlo Lio, Adam Beyer, Cristian Varela, Jon Rundell, Mar Maya, Aitor Ronda…
Motivated by the continuous changes and evolution of electronic music, he decided to embark on music production with Jose María aboga, partner in Puzzle Valencia and owner of Redhomestudios (Valencia).
His main project with which he is currently working is music production, and where in a very short time he has managed to release his productions on several international labels such as: Stick Recordings, Playoff Records, U.F.O. Records, Psykometrik Recordings, Sound Dissonace, Back in Black Records, Big Punch Records, Romtom Records, Glick Records….
His vision of electronic music is underground and with a lot of energy, this vision is what he tries to capture in all his productions and his sets, his main influences as international djs are Dubfire, Richie Hawtin, Adam Beyer, Bart Skils, Timmo, Pig & Dan, Alberto Ruiz, Paco Osuna… and as national djs Juanjo Benaches, Javi Presi, Luis Bonias, Dani Fiddo, David Verdeguer, Kike Jaen, Jorge Cardona…
