Renowned for his uncanny ability to read an audience and anticipate its needs, DJ Lukijo is one of the most sought after Afropop DJ in Ottawa.
Lukijo discovered his passion for turntables in high school producing mixtapes for his classmates and spinning at school dances. In 1999 he moved to Montreal where he and like-minded friends founded Nitty-Grittz Productions and began promoting exclusive events at Lava Lounge, Orchid Nightclub & Bubbles. In Montreal he refined his turntable finesse and cultivated his unique party-rocking sound which incorporates House, Breaks, Dancehall, Reggaeton, Salsa, Kompa, R&B, Congolese Rumba, and Afropop, just to mention a few.
After returning to Ottawa in 2004 DJ Lukijo has since graced the desks at just about every hotspot in the nation’s capital region such as The Drink, Pier 21, Helsinki, Ritual, Live Lounge, Discoteka, M Lounge and more. In 2006 he took up residence at the Brig and Armada Lounge, and upon registering his mobile business in 2008 he took a 3-year hiatus from the nightclub scene.
Forever the purist DJ Lukijo prefers mixing and scratching on Technics 1200 turntables with Serato Scratch Live digital software or vinyl.
