Luca Cataldo (Ka:lu)
I met vinyls at age 15 and I’ve been involved in VJing since the end of the year 2000. This activities allows me to move from a music deck to a visuals consolle. I’ve been official Vj for the Subculture Parties from 2007 to 2010. In these years I have been involved in many parties, events and festivals as Dj/Vj, having the opportunities to performe in Italy,Holland, Germany, Spain, Uk, Latvia and play with most of interanational DnB aritists such as Fouward, Apex, Chook, Nocturnal, Prolix, Nymfo, Cause4Concern, Vicious Circle, Future Signal, Goldie, Storm, Calyx, N.Phect, Pendulum, Chris Su, MC Rage, Chris Renegate, Soul Jah and Tenor Fly, Erb’n'Dub, Dj Radic, Aeph, Dabs.
In my Djset I mostly play Drum and Bass (neurofunked oriented); but I always try to be connected with the dancefloor to catch feedbacks that can suggest me the next tune people need!
I also use to present dj set that includes different genders such as Dubstep, Breaks, Minimal Dub/Techno, Latin Groove and Electro Swing.
In my Vjset I love to project real images recorded from life. Locations, peoples, and cities are mixed together with abstract videos
I am forming part of different collectives in which I am active on various projects :
Subculture Music: Roma based collective since 2004. Electronic music Label and party organizer. I’m co-owner and manager of the music label together with Maztek. I’m official VJ, video Maker and Dj , since 2007.
