His first passion was with Hip Hop and as soon as he graduated from High School he dove right into the business of throwing parties. He worked with classic artists of the true school era like Digable Planets, Digital Underground, Gang Starr, Kool Keith, and many more. During that time several house music pioneers like Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Dj Sneak, Heather, Colette, etc were making waves at that same venues he was throwing hip hop parties. From that exposure he made a quick transition into producing house music events like his Night Moves party at Monarch SF. In the process he became obsessed with finding exciting new artists and emerging sounds to book at his parties. After completely immersing himself in dance music it was only natural for Papa Lu to start his career as a DJ opening and closing for cutting edge and legendary artists and gaining new fans at every gig. In 2013, Papa Lu joined up with a group of close friends to create The Kazbah, a popular sound camp at Burning Man. Their pyramid is known as a beacon of light with their state of the art laser piercing into the sky and their parties are known to be some of the best on the playa to date. Papa Lu is one of the leaders of the camp helping with event production on and off the playa. They've hosted with numerous artist. Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Dub Fire, Lee Burridge, just to name a few. In 2015, Papa Lu put out his first e.p. as one half of the duo, "Set in Stone" on petFood records. Their release, "Bad One" charted on beatport's top 100 deep house releases hitting #30 at one point.
