Direct Drive Presents....

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

This month at The Direct Drive Loft we continue our tradition of bringing out the best in the North American Drum and Bass scene. We are very pleased to present the NYC return of San Francisco’s own LUKEINO. One of the busiest in the Bay Area, Lukeino is a DJ/Producer/Record Label owner with quality output. Gracing the state with Lukeino this evening will be well known Philly/NYC Dj/Producer CLAY NYCE as well as Direct Drive residents DJ SEOUL and DAVE SHICHMAN. See you on the floor!

Lukeino has been a staple the San Francisco Drum & Bass scene for many years, holding down residencies with crews such as Compression, Sublife, Reflex, Hit n Run and BADNB. His energetic and soulful style has won over crowds up and down the West Coast and as far east as Miami and NYC. Whether rocking with the massive or smooth rolling in the club, Lukeino brings the funk. Known for keeping his DJ sets laced with exclusive tracks & original productions, Lukeino has created memorable music that has seen airplay every where from BBC Radio 1 to Fuel TV. The rest of the world is starting to take notice and his tunes have received DJ support from Atlantic Connection, Crissy Criss, Mutt, Mix Master Doc, Mary Ann Hobbs, Calculon, Method One & Stunna, amongst many others. In 2008 Lukeino launched Sublife Recordings. While focusing mainly on Drum & Bass music, SubLife refuses to be limited by genres. The up and coming label is quickly gaining momentum and has a number of exciting releases forthcoming. Keep an eye out for big things from Lukeino and SubLife in 2010 and beyond!
