Hi Luca, please tell us a little about you?
Hi, I’m Luca Schreiner, a 24 years old DJ & producer hailing from Stuttgart/Germany who already had the chance to work with some of the greatest artists of our time.
Describe yourself in 3 words?
Passionate, Determined, Humble
Who has made the biggest impact on your life so far, and why?
Definitely my dad, since he’s the one who’s giving me so many helpful tips and advices for me personally but also for my career. He’s also very experienced in the music business and just helps me where he can.
How did you get started in the business?
I actually saw videos of Tiesto performing in front of thousands of people and was totally blown away by the fact that a DJ can fascinate so many people and literally sell out stadiums. After I saw that I wanted to become a DJ on my own and learned producing music by watching tutorials on YouTube.
Did you go to music school?
No, not at all. I’m not even musically trained. Neither do I play any instruments. I literally learned everything I do from scratch and by trial and error.
Describe your sound in 3 words?
Dance, Pop, Happy
Who influenced you and why did you choose to make music?
Tiesto really influenced me to become a DJ myself. On the music production side of things, I was and still am massively influenced by The Chainsmokers.
Do you ever get nervous before a show or a release?
Always! 🙂 No matter how many shows I’ve played or releases I’ve had, I still get nervous and excited about it every time. I think that’s normal in a way, since you’re emotionally linked to the music you play or release and of course you want to see people liking it too.
How would you describe your sound?
I would describe my sound as Dance-Pop cross-over which is heavily vocal based and more about the melody than the instrumentation.
What is your next goal as a musician?
I want to release way more original music than I did the last couple of years. I became well know for my remix productions but now it’s time to show people my „own“ kind of music too.
Now tell us about your remixes of Alessia Cara, Backstreet Boys, Nina Nesbitt to name a few?
I feel super blessed to have had the chance to work for so many artists already and contribute my version to their amazing songs. Seeing people enjoy my remixes is such a great feeling and the remixes definitely helped me in gaining attention for my originals too.
What is the feeling of having more than 100M streams on Spotify. That’s amazing!
It feels super unreal to see this many streams appear on my Spotify profile. Seeing my remixes and originals getting this much traction and attention is incredibly motivating and gets me excited for all future songs that I’m working on.
And about your solo release “Tomorrow?”
Tomorrow was super special for me, since this song was a bit different in terms of its style than the other songs I’ve released. It was way more “Pop” which was great! I’m a big fan of experimenting with different styles and genres and I feel like being open minded about every musical style is what makes a good producer.

What we can expect of Luca Schreiner in 2019/2020?
You expect a lot of new original songs! I’ve never had this many songs ready at the same time and me and my team are just trying to find the best release-schedule for all these tracks.
Name one your strengths?
Determined. I think that’s one of the German characters that suit me to a 100%.
What is your own definition of happiness?
Being healthy and doing what you love defines happiness for me. I feel truly blessed to have a family and friends that support me with whatever I do.
Any loves other than music?
My girlfriend 😉 And I love cooking! Huge fan of trying out new dishes and experimenting with new spices or ingredients – just like in music.
What is your favorite healthy food?
I’d probably go for sushi here. Nothing better than great sushi with quality fish and a decent sushi rice.
And your favorite cheat food?
For cheat food I go for Pizza. Huge fan of it and could eat it day in day out.
You have a very distinctive look and brand – who is your biggest fashion inspiration?
One of my best friends is a fashion designer himself and he always helps me with my look and clothing before shows.
If you could meet someone living or dead, who would it be and why?
I would love to meet Martin Garrix and just hang out with him for a whole day. He’s one of my biggest inspirations, not only in terms of how he handles his career but also how humble and approachable he is to his fans.
How do you see yourself in 5 years?
I hopefully still see myself working on new music and playing all around the globe. I don’t have any distinctive goals for my career, I just want to see people enjoying my music and having a great time to it.
How would you describe your fashion style?
I would describe my fashion style as casual-loose
What do you think of Social Media?
Obviously social media has become the best tool to stay in touch with your fans all over the world. It allows us artists to share our vision and musical idea even with people that are not yet connect to us, which is a blessing.
