Louis Kutarba is a 26-year-old DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist, a true music lover. His musical influences are diverse and varied: rocked by jazz, blues and funk, he discovered electronic music at an early age. After a childhood in the Caribbean (Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Guadeloupe), a residency in a French club and a few raves, he then settled in Montreal and has since developed a multi-faceted musical identity. First, his experience as a DJ with a three-year residency three evenings a week allowed him to develop a fluid and professional mixing technique.
His reading of the audience has also built his reputation for adaptation and eclecticism. This opened the doors of places such as Le Marusan in Montreal, a quality establishment located in the Old Port district, with eclectic mixes ranging from Lounge, Nu Jazz and Austrian Dub, in the manner of Kruder & Dorfmeister or Mark Farina. At the same time, his two monikers Wa5p (Hard Techno) and Luminescu (Minimal, Micro House, Romanian Techno) have earned him a solid reputation in the Montreal and international electronic nightlife scene.
After having proven himself through more than 50 bookings in Montreal (Stereo Bar, Le Salon Daomé, OriGn, Velvet, etc.), he was able to express himself musically in Paris (Batofar, 4 Éléments), and also opened for renowned DJs such as Manu le Malin (SXM), Adrian Hour (Circus Afterhours, Grand Prix de Montréal) or Praslea, Romanian electronic music icon. He also performed at the Illusion Festival (QC, Canada) and at Écho à Venir (Bordeaux, FR) last September. His assiduity in production gave him the opportunity to sign his first creation on the Magician on Duty label based in Miami. Further releases are expected in the coming months, including on True Balance Records (Panama), Cosmic Relay (Montreal), and the internationally renowned labels Archipel and Binaural Arts.
