We’re back with the 89th weekly episode of The Local Selection Mix series, this week we welcome Fuinneamh Festival founder and long time DJ, Lucas.
Luke Reddy aka ‘LUCAS has been producing electronic music and DJing since 2011. Luke’s early years as an artist were not your run of the mill, first cutting his teeth performing at his own events which took place in the forest, open air events and raves, deep in the Wicklow mountains, these legendary parties became known as the ‘Keep Her Lit’ series.
Lucas disappeared somewhat off the DJ radar in 2015, when his ambitious plans for Fuinneamh Festival year one began, but with DJ sets in the summer of 2019 at EP, Body & Soul and at Fuinneamh we saw Lucas make a resurgence into the Irish DJ scene once again.
2020 has seen Lucas releases on London based Aesir Records, plus Irish label Hothous, which gained massive support from international artists such as Abstract Division and homegrown heroes Jon Hussey and Pusher, which has helped put a Lucas’s name firmly back on the circuit.
With forthcoming releases on Dublin based club brand and label, Research, plus Lucas’s own new Ogma Records imprint, we can expect to hear a lot more music from the infamous ‘Keep Her Lit’ rave organiser.
Lucas becomes the first artist to compile a mix for us of 100% original material, so stick this excellent one and a half hour mix on, which incorporate a glimpse into his back catalogue of releases, some forthcoming material as well as unreleased material dating as far back as 2012.
