Jack Lu started his musical career at a young age, with a varied musical and instrumental foundation ranging from violin, to guitar and drums.
At 22 years of age, Jack decided to further his career as a DJ and picked up industry standard turntables, CDJ’s and mixer. With the help of Sketchism and the Strike3 crew, Jack soon began his career as a DJ playing at the MAXX nightclub. Within his fifth gig, Sketchism brought him on board to play back to back in the peak hour slot at the Silent Disco Tent in the 2009 FUTURE MUSIC FESTIVAL. Jack now holds residency at some of Perth’s hottest nights, including Filthy Gorgeous and Chemistry Sessions, along with support slots at festivals and for touring DJ’s.
His style is best described as electro house with a touch of hip hop to keep things interesting. Only recently, Jackness has ventured into the world of production and is learning rapidly, aspiring to one day hear his track being played by other DJ’s around the world.
Significant influences in Jackness’ style are Wolfgang Gartner, R.I.O., D.O.N.S., Vandalism, Laidback Luke, Deadmau5 and the local boys Sketchism, Richie G and KennyL. Jackness is now signed to Strike3, and is looking forward to a bright future in music. Making a name for himself in a such a short space of time, it obvious we can expect to see more of Jackness in the future. Watch this space.
