Lucky's sound is a strong mix of funky house, grooves, sexy latin, uplifting tech house sounds, massive beats, eclectic vibes and tough African drums. His music and his DJ sets show a strong resemblance: filled with diversity, highly dynamic and always up tempo… Meet Lucky Charmes!

Born on the 16th of June 1979 as Werner Charmes and initially starting out as a hip-hop DJ, Lucky’s career as a club DJ rapidly blew up as he gradually found his way to the house/club scene by obtaining the chance to play in a string of renowned Dutch clubs. With DJ sets in well-known venues such as Now&Wow (Rotterdam), Jimmy Woo (Amsterdam), The Sand (Amsterdam) and Escape (Amsterdam), Lucky’s growing reputation was not to be stopped. As a consequence, Lucky was asked to compile and mix the compilation “Supa Fly House Music”, released in 2002, marking his first DJ mix on CD with more to follow the years after.

Within a few months, he transformed from a fanatic hobbyist into a respected club DJ, hosting his own night Zu Hause at the famous Jimmy Woo club in Amsterdam bringing culture, art and music together in a packed room. Nowadays, Lucky performs his energetic DJ sets on the biggest events and festivals such as Emporium Festival, Pleasure Island, Sexy Mother Fucker, F*ckers, Samsobeats, Sneakerz, Latin Village and many more high profile events.

As a producer, Lucky also knows how to stand his ground: “Getcha Damn Hands Up” (Sneakerz Muzik), co-produced by Tony Verdult, reached # 1 in the Dance Tunes Top 100 chart and # 8 in the Beatport charts receiving tremendous support from DJ's such as Bob Sinclar, Erick E, Fedde Le Grand and Roger Sanchez. Follow up releases “So High” and “Plain Dots”, again a collaboration with Tony Verdult and both released on Sidney Samson’s imprint Samsobeats, also skyrocketed through the charts and can count on frequent plays from the likes of Axwell, Sidney Samson and Gregor Salto.

Lucky’s fine craftsmanship in the studio didn’t pass by unnoticed in the global music scene and soon resulted into a number of high end remix jobs. Renowned artists like Robin S, John Dahlbäck, AnnaGrace, Sherry Flavour, DJ Jean, D-Rashid, Natural Born Grooves, Groovenatics and Hitmeister D amongst others all experienced a taste of Lucky’s expertise. Now exclusively signed to Selekted Music in The Netherlands, Lucky showcases his diversity on the label in an impressive résumé of tunes such as "Morninglight”, “Rastafari", "Dance With Me", “Invasion 2010” and “Elastik”. But his finest hour was yet to come….

With finding his comfort in the progressive/bigroom zone, Lucky Charmes is making serious waves in the global music industry. With a heavy recording contract for singles and albums at All Around The World / Universal Records UK in his back pocket, Lucky will be unleashing a ton of dance floor massacre over the coming months featuring some of the world’s biggest vocalists, topliners and singer/songwriters.
