Biography

Lumix (born July 23, 2002 in Rohrbach, real name Luca Michlmayr), also written as LUM!X, is an Austrian DJ and music producer. 

Michlmayr aka Lumix started producing music himself at the age of 11. By uploading bootlegs and original songs to SoundCloud and YouTube, the Swedish independent label and network Bounce United found him and signed him. In May 2018, Michlmayr released his debut single “Underground” there, which he produced in collaboration with Spanish musician Moha. On the occasion of reaching 700.000 subscribers on the official Bounce United YouTube channel, he produced the song “Bounce United”. The song “Chiraq 2018” by the Swedish musician Alfons, a first official remix which he created together with Myhr, was released in the same year.

At the beginning of 2019, the singles “Jägermeister” and “Waiting for Me” were released. After his bootleg of Meg & Dia’s song “Monster” went viral on YouTube, he remixed it with Italian musician Gabry Ponte and released the new version as a single through Spinnin’ Records. With this he achieved his international breakthrough. He hit the charts in several European countries. More than 400,000 copies of this single were sold in Germany. Michlmayr received a platinum record. With more than 70 weeks in the German single charts, Monster is also one of the songs that stayed in the German single charts the longest.

In January 2020, he released the single “The Passenger (LaLaLa)”, again together with Ponte, Mokaby and D.T.E. A third collaboration with Ponte, titled “Scare Me”, followed in September 2020. The US producer KSHMR and Karra also took part.

On January 8, 2021, a cover version of the English language version of the song “Major Tom” by Peter Schilling from 1983 was released. In the same month he released the single “Annie Are You Ok”, which was created in collaboration with Mio. In April 2021 the song “Secrets” followed. He produced this one together with Sølo. “Thunder”, the fourth official collaboration with Gabry Ponte, was released in May 2021, who also supported Michlmayr in the studio with the previous songs.
“Thunder” was able to build on the success of “Monster” and “Passenger (LaLaLa)” and reached the single charts in several countries. The song received numerous awards. The single “Champion”, which served as the official anthem of the Summer 2021 LEC Playoffs, was released in august. The song was created in collaboration with Orange Inc and Séb Mont.The follow up “Trick or Treat”, was produced together with the Swiss DJ and music producer duo Molow.

Lumix took part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin together with the singer Pia Maria with the song “Halo”.
