Lucas Benjamin (NL)
In 2011 Lucas started an online mixtape-series called 'Music is what Feelings sound like', where he played all kinds of songs that he had stories and experiences with. He aimed to touch people in a different way than he could do when he would play somewhere. He wanted to help people grow emotionally and spiritually which made him receive many stories of people who were touched by his mixtapes. For the ones that became curious: they are still online. Besides dance events Lucas started playing at various parties, festivals and theatre shows. Which made him travel to places like Hawaï, Sydney, Sao Paulo, New York, Los Angeles, Berlin and London. In 2014 he lived in Japan for 3 months to discover the musical scene and culture of Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto and Kobe. After this inspirational journey he decided it was time to change his DJ name from 'Lu-Chi'sz' to his real name 'Lucas Benjamin'. In 2014 he was asked by the renowned Wicked Jazz Sounds-movement in Amsterdam to join them. You can frequently see/hear him play at their weekly club-night at the Sugarfactory in Amsterdam or on Red Light Radio. Also, in 2015 he became a curator for 22tracks.com. Through the years he gained a lot of knowledge and experience. Not only about music but also how to connect with the audience and how to take them on an uplifting journey.
