“You shouldn’t let anybody tell you what you can or can’t become” ~ Deborah de Luca
Introduced by Pete Tong as ‘The Techno Queen of Naples’ when she made her BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix debut in 2019, Italy’s Deborah de Luca has legions of them, who can be seen profusing their everlasting praise under anything she posts on social media.
Though she’s plenty more than a social media darling: Deborah’s eye-watering schedule took her from Lebanon to London to Valencia to Paris to Bucharest to Croatia to Resistance Miami to Ostend Beach to Brunch in the Park to Verknipt ADE and to Eden Ibiza, where she held a residency in 2019 alongside Tronic boss Christian Smith.
It’s behind the turntables where Deborah still feels most at home, traveling from continent to continent each week playing at some of the world’s most prestigious events. Delivering high-energy performances at huge international festivals and intimate nightclubs to performing breath-taking live shows broadcast to millions worldwide, there really aren’t many situations to which she can’t turn her left hand. Passionate and industrious, charismatic yet introverted, Deborah De Luca has already left an indelible mark on the music industry and she’s only just getting started.
Deborah de Luca was born and raised in Scampia, the housing estate made famous through the Italian crime film and TV series Gomorrah.
