Lulu Levan

As well as being a professional DJ, Lulu is also an academic and journalist. She has a PhD in Sociology at Goldsmiths, and has written for a range of publications, from Jockey Slut and The Face through to The Independent and The New Statesman. Her academic work is soon to be published through Routledge and Palgrave Macmillan. However, music has always been a central passion for Lulu, and a background in the music industry –not just writing about music but managing artists, record labels and promoting events – has helped shape Lulu’s career as a DJ.

Lulu has a playful, credible and creative ear for tunes, and has a natural flair for reading a crowd and filling a dance-floor. Lulu is resident at The NED, Electric House, The Groucho and The House of St Barnabas. She has also worked with brands such as Facebook, Netflix, Meantime, Mazda, Häagen-Dazs in association with Matthew Williamson, and Caravan, and was in-store resident DJ for H&M for three years, playing for the exclusive designer launches of Kenzo and Balmain.

Lulu also loves festivals and sunshine, having played regularly at Lovebox, Bestival and Pikes hotel in Ibiza. In addition, Lulu’s wide range of interests matched with her friendly, professional approach and organic industry contacts has also led her to performing at art events such as Ryan Gander’s after-show party in Manchester with broadcaster and journalist Miranda Sawyer, and at awards ceremonies.

Lulu’s musical repertoire is fun, varied and eclectic, boasting disco, nu-disco, classic house, 80s electro, soul, funk, reggae, old school hip hop and R&B.
