Lucas also known as Lux 18 is part of the Chanoirs, a young and wild Brussels crew that dabble in all forms of art. This multidisciplinary artists’ collective that runs a clothing brand and throws dark rave parties attract big crowds and are quite raw in their way of representing different forms of art. No filters and no borders. Lux 18 is their young 23 year old resident Dj who’s currently making a name for himself throughout the Belgian and French new school techno scene. I would describe his sets as a mix of trance and hard techno, 90’s rave with a fair amount of vocals.
As a DJ, Lux 18s core principle is to be fully immersed in the event and to have a constant connection with his crowd. His mentality is aligned with the Chanoirs way of thinking to not simply organise events but to be active members of the festive gathering. Over the past 2 years he has received the acknowledgement of several respected organisations such as C12, Kiosk Radio where he acts as resident and fellow DJ’s such as AZF who has acted as a mentor to the young DJ by promoting him for events such as Dour Festival and RINSE FR.
Inspirations: Artists – Iron sight, Sister Iodine, Techno thriller, Surgeon, Kettama, Henning Baer, J-zbel.
Organisation – Herensauna, Ostgut. Lux 18 also takes a lot of musical inspiration from the trance scene in the 90s.
