Since I was 6 years old , I’ve beed collecting records (45’s) and playing them on my moms sofa size turntable, and realized that music had a strong impact then, but didn’t know how far I would go with it. Many years later It became part of what runs through my veins…. Whether it be playing and instrument or DJing, there would be a huge void in my life without it…..
A Native New Yorker and long time DJ , LooweeR aka Luie Rivera has reached the opportune time in the music industry to express his musical variations to all sorts of enthusiasts. By keeping an open ear to all forms of music LooweeR enjoys the creative aspects of composing, engineering as well as mixing and editing. “Enough to keep me totally involved as well as extremely busy”. LooweeR also plays percussions of all types and has developed chords and lead keyboard programming skills along the way.
Back in the 80’s and 90’s LooweeR was a resident editer for Clivilles & Cole Enterprise , while managing thier studio facilities as well as assistant engineer, and has many edits credited to his name (Luie Rivera).

While spinning in some of the top clubs in New York, many guest spots included Bonds International Casino,Studio 54, Tribecca , (To name a few) while a resident at Underground in NYC, has decided that a more permanent residentcy was best in oerder to create a suitable following.

Continuing many guest spots in other parts of the country, he has produced and manage to get his tracks in several T.V. shows including “Baywatch , Maury Povich. ,Third Rock From The Sun and Law and Order SVU.
