How did you get into Djing?
It all started in 2016. I‘ve always had a taste for electronic music. But in 2016, I was inspired by a local festival DJ which hung up at a party organized by me.
When I saw how he could influence the mood of people with his music, I knew that I wanted it too.
What did you do to advance your skills/knowledge?
I sat in front of my equipment almost every day & tried to get better.
I also tried to get a better feeling for building a song. In the end, it helped a lot to know when and where I can best make a transition.
What did your first setup look like?
I had a Pioneer DDJ RB controller and intially a standard windows laptop. After two weeks, however, I bought a Mac Book from a friendly DJ, because this had much more power.
What does your current setup look like?
Currently I have a DDJ RX controller and still my Mac from back then. As headphones, I use the „DT-80 pro audio“ from Beyer Dynamics. I also started producing music, so I count the „FL Studio“ program as my piece of equipment. In FL Studio I mostly work with the plugins „Sylenth 1“ and „Nexus“.
How did you get your DJ/Artist name?
My artist name is made up of my first name and surname. My name is Lukas Kaemnick. The „Lu“ from „Lukem“ comes from thr first two letters of my first name and the letters „kem“ are a mixture of the letters of my last name.

In case of setbacks, you should never give up! Do not let anything stop you. Learn new and meet other DJs!
