Luiz Zen (also known as Cheap Konduktor), Brazilian from Curitiba / PR, has been involved with music since his very early ages, even before, at 9 years old, learn the art of the guitar and, four years later, discover the world of classical music in keyboard lessons. Oportunities to play different types of rhythms in some of his friends’ bands emerged naturally.
The extreme ease of assimilating sounds, rhythms, chords, melodies, play music “by ear" and distinguish between the various nuances and details of each song makes Luiz Zen stands among the rest. And it was in electronic music where he found a very favorable environment for stimulating even more his musical skills.
By 2003, Luiz Zen began his deep journey through the world of electronic music, participating in many electronic parties and festivals, within and outside of his country of origin. Since then, Luiz Zen has shown such a huge curiosity as to what other DJs do and play, their techniques and malice, that he decided to go further, learning the art of deejaying.

He also was one of the finalists in a duel of DJs, which took place at Liqüe Club, on 2010, and also was indicated as a breakthrough DJ at that same year and also on 2011.
Influenced by famous names like Stephan Bodzin, Len Faki, Gary Beck, Adam Beyer, Oliver Huntemann, Joseph Capriati, Perfect Stranger, Dubfire, Mauro Picotto, Richie Hawtin, Alex Di Stefano, Fergie, Anthony Rother, Marc Romboy, just to name a few, and thanks to many years of devotion to the electronic music world, the DJ has collected a diverse musical background enough to feel comfortable walking through styles like Techno, Minimal Techno, Tech House, Progressive House, Deep House, among other electronic mixtures.
With sets full of energy, Luiz Zen makes use of a blend of performatic style, toghether with a refined technique in effects, in contrast with quieter moments, always focused on ensuring a great experience to the public.
