Luke Santos, a man from the future with a mission and a purpose! A musical guru, a pioneer in technologies, and a living example in so many ways, reminding us some of the most primitive philosophies in life, “breathe, practice meditation, live for your dreams, and never give up”.  A teacher in many ways, and a humble artist with a profound message that is “beyond wheels” as he once said! He was born in Argentina, he began playing music at his mid-teens, a few years later he started working as DJ resident for different venues, and also private/corporative events such as weddings, and fashion shows. His career as a DJ took off when he was twenty-two years old and started to travel in the 90´s to play music, and lived in different places around the world, such as in the U.S., in Miami, Tampa, Chicago, Dallas, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York; later on moving to Amsterdam and touring around Frankfurt, Barcelona, Rome, and Ibiza for many summer seasons; and then Chile in Santiago, Viña del Mar, Valparaíso, and South America all thru the early 2000´s. He has participated as a DJ for many Winter Music Conference events in Miami, a few Love Parade shows for hundreds of thousands of people in Chile, Berlin, and also in Argentina working even as a co-producer for the event. He has also played for charity events such as Telethon in Chile supporting their cause for handicapped children, also played at the Olympic Stadium for 80.000 souls at the closing of this event. He has played at several Dutch summer festivals including the known Amsterdam Dance Event participating yearly with his argentine circle Sudbeat Records, also with Global Underground for their first ADE showcase. He has been a beta-tester for Native Instruments with their DJ software Traktor, since their early years when professional computer programs for DJs didn’t existed; and is actually sponsored by Assistive Tech-Giant GlassOuse, providing him with advance technology, to help him improve his abilities as the only paralysed DJ in the world. In the year 2002, Luke had a car accident that changed his life completely, to the point where he thought he was never going to be able to play music again. He was in a wheelchair without being able to move his body from the shoulders-down. After his partial recovery, and some surgery attempts, he is today still in this condition, nevertheless this all has opened up new doors of possibilities, and even new dimensions for him. Since just a year after his accident between 2003 and 2004 he was able design his own technology to start doing music with computer programs and voice recognition tools. So during this time he produced his first album with original music which he named Music Beyond Wheels, which is an extraordinary un-released music masterpiece with minimal, progressive, and house sounds in all the tracks; by this time he was once again inspired and looking forward into a new life and again a future as a music artist that even with the highs and lows of his life condition, he has still managed to live and fulfil most of his goals. Today, after the long sabbatical pandemic times, Luke starts 2022 with new management by Musique de Lune Global Bookings, working along them to create a tailor-made agenda which will include the release of a studio album on MDL Records, live shows in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. With ambitious plans to merge his brand with the know-how from Musique de Lune into the promising world of Crypto and NFTs. This marks a new starting point for him into the future with upcoming music and technological evolution! The story of Luke Santos, now in the 5th dimension, continues…
