The New York City-based house music producer takes pride in his four-year industry experience from which he has learned and perfected his art to become the person he is today.

However, LUSSO was not yet a renowned name, so he Djs as a part-time activity, mostly describing it as a hobby.

This also helped him keep his dream for the industry alive while still building his business empire. Despite being a successful curator in the fast-growing NFT world, only a few recognize LUSSO for his business ventures.

Most of these projects rose to dominate the charts, including trending on Beatport.
As he continues to rise to more success in the industry, LUSSO points out the house genre as one of the toughest music sounds to break into. According to him, getting your music heard can be one of the most challenging tasks for an EDM producer, which sometimes makes many quit. You need more than talent to produce; you need a quality that will set you ahead of the competition.
LUSSO says he had to dig deep into his abilities alongside being consistent in delivering what the fans wanted. This included spending countless hours in the studio alongside emailing different people in the industry who helped him put out his music.
