Vintage Culture, the Brazilian DJ who is enchanting the world

Brazil is a country where launching icons and successful people into the world is already becoming normal. The success of Brazilians captures niches from different sports, inventors, and people related to music and with this young DJ, it was no different. 

Lukas Ruiz known to all as Vintage Culture is a boy from the countryside of Mato Grosso Do Sul, a Brazilian state in the centre of the country. Born in Mundo Novo, a tiny town with a little over 20,000 inhabitants, it was there that he took his first steps and it was in the electronic style that Lukas found his space. 

His taste for electronic music came as a teenager, listening to artists from the 80s, and had a big influence on the creation of the Vintage Culture project in 2003. But before pursuing a music career, he even thought about pursuing a career in agribusiness, which is very strong in his region. 

The DJ stayed in his hometown until he was 19 and then moved to Paraná, a state in the south of the country. He then decided to study straight, but it didn't last long and he dropped the course to focus one hundred percent on his music. A funny fact is that the first Beats he produced were not made in professional studios, but in Lan Houses.

Their first works were released on specific platforms to promote their music. The breakthrough was with a remix of "Blue Monday", by the band New Order. Then came other hits like Hollywood, Drinkee, Wild Kidz, and remixes of Another Brick in the Wall by Pink Floyd. 

But in 2015, Vintage Culture took off for the world, drawing attention from major international festivals and renowned electronic music such as Lollapalooza, Tomorrowland, and Rock in Rio, besides touring Canada, Sri Lanka, Russia, Egypt, England, France, South Africa, Turkey, and Australia.

With these appearances and participation in various festivals in Brazil and abroad the 29-year-old Lukas Ruiz from Mato Grosso do Sul, this past weekend (14), was present for the first time at Coachella 2023. A music festival that takes place in the United States, in the city of Indio which is in the state of California. 

But one of the biggest milestones in the DJ's career, according to him, was playing in Ibiza, which for many is the capital of electronic music, he participated for two years and is in the line-up for the third consecutive year, playing at Hi Ibiza. The famous club is in Playa d'en Bossa, a space divided into two, Theatre and Club, and three outdoor zones, all of them equipped with the latest technological advances in sound, lighting, and audio-visuals. Between all the zones, the ballad has a capacity for 5 thousand people.  And it is there that the best DJs in the world perform and stand out.
