With a dedication to music, two turntables, vinyl records and a radio, Eric DLux cultivated the means necessary to captivate any event or nightclub. This Grammy nominated songwriter and producer commenced his course at the young age of 17 in his home town Los Angeles, California. He began his career at the #1 Rhythmic CHR Radio Station in Los Angeles, Power106 FM. After being discovered by fellow Angelino and Power 106 DJ, Vice & Echo, Eric Dlux soon entered the local Hollywood club circuit that would eventually lead him to multiple club residencies in nearby Las Vegas.
“That first time I landed in Vegas and walked off the plane, I couldn’t believe I was about to play at the Mandalay Bay. Vegas is the major league for DJ’s, just to be able to reach that level, was insane to me.” Within two years of working in Promotions at Power 106, Eric’s talent and potential would take him to Host and DJ overnight radio. Just six months in to his overnight show, radio executives would notice his talent and quickly offer him the opportunity to host prime time radio, weekdays from 3p-7p.
“It didn’t hit me at first, it happened so quick. It wasn’t until I got text messages and comments on my social media pages that I realized the entire city of Los Angeles was listening. I was so humbled and inspired, knowing what I said or played live on the radio would have an impact on someone’s life.” Now, with a daily routine of afternoons on Power 106 and nights at the hottest clubs in Hollywood, Eric would soon discover a new emerging talent that would be destined for the music and nightclub community. “You meet new people all the time, you build great relationships and memories that go with them. I remember meeting Redfoo at Banana Split Sundays, a club DJ-AM used to do. It was so much fun, we were just drinking buddies having the time of our lives to music we loved. So naturally, I got this idea that was perfect for describing the nights and fun we had in LA and Vegas.”
“I spoke about this concept for a record with Redfoo, “Shots”, and right away he was on board, he loved the idea. Then I called Lil Jon and immediately he jumped on the record. It was crazy how it all came together.” Since 2004 Eric Dlux has hosted a radio show on-air at Power 106 FM.
Tao, Marquee, Light, Hakkasan, Drai’s, Intrigue and Omnia are where Eric can be seen live behind the DJ booth pursuing his passions and living out his dreams on two turntables. “Knowing that everyone can have a bad day, including myself, but when we’re all in that moment, together on the radio or in the club and listening to our favorite songs. We’re dancing, singing our hearts out to every lyric… that energy that’s created, I love it. It’s humbling knowing that the music I play can help someone have that moment to live their lives and escape.”
