GET023 - Lucas Keizer "Soul Child" Getaway Recordings
Lucas Keizer's DJ sets and production stay forward thinking and un predictable. Lucas is originally from Jakarta Indonesia, where he grew up on smooth jazz and his parents hippie record collection of sounds ranging from Pink Floyd to Jerry Lee Lewis to Sinatra. From day one Lucas has had a very vast array of musical influences. He began Djing in clubs and warehouse parties in Houston Texas around 1999. Originally getting into house music while looking for somewhere to lay down the card board and start break dancing, later turned into a passion that fueled many events, releases, and dj gigs. Lucas has played alongside acts such as Julius Papp, Mark Farina, and Fred Everything, to name a few. After djing many clubs and venues in Texas, he started to gear his focus towards the studio. Jazz, funk, and soul, with hard hitting techy house beats is the sound that Lucas has become known for. Lucas appears on releases with artist such as JT Donaldson, Toka Project, and Natural Rhythm. Doing original work and remixes for heavy weight labels such as Tango, Kolour, and Guesthouse, he shows no sign of slowing down. Lucas' music ranges from deep, moody, techy sounds, to funky jazzy house. All of which incorporates a certain dance floor energy. After attending school for Audio Engineering, and production at Media Tech, Lucas started his own label in 2007 "Homesick Recordings". He is also the founder of H.U.H.M. Which stands for Houston's Underground House Movement. (H.U.H.M.) has had some truly amazing events in its infant stages of existence, and has a bright future ahead. Keep your ears to the ground!
