  • After years in the scene, searching for new beats and sounds, DJ Luar|Ojo Fatuo has presented his CD, “Elektronika 2002” as well as other astounding feats. Pushing the limits of techno beyond the variant, DJ Luar is generating a musical portrait at a world-wide level. After conquering the Venezuelan scene and most of Europe, DJ Luar began his state-side series of presentations in Colorado in December of 2000, at venues such as “The Roots on the Hill”, “Seville” and “Sanctuary”.

    In addition, DJ Luar has produced television commercials with Etheron TV Services (Cisneros Corp.), performed in concerts such as the “Pop & Rock Festival”, Athenian Art Complex and Pirelli Hall in Caracas, Venezuela. To top it off, his skills have led him to the Big Screen, creating soundtracks for films “Three Monkeys” by Carmen L’Roche, participation in “The Incredible Kidnapping of a President” and short film “The Last Frankenstein”.

    With awards coming from all over the western hemisphere, fans in all 360 and radio signals on their way to distant galaxies, DJ Luar is on his way to becoming one of the world’s top music producer/DJs to ever sweep the scene, cinema or MP3 player.

    Dear Raul (AKA – DJ Luar),

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for performing at the Mana Reventon After Party in Denver on September 29, 2002. The party was a smashing success, due largely in part to your ability to create and sustain excitement with the crowd through the great music that you spun throughout the night. Over and over again we heard compliments from the crowd on how amazing the DJ was. We are confident that our party would not have been as cool without your performance!!
