Lucien L. Wall, born in Brooklyn, New York was exposed to music at an early age. Exposed to different types of music being raised within the West-Indian culture (Jazz, Blues, Calypso, Reggae, Latin) he took those musical tastes with his passion of the Hip-Hop Culture to pursue his dream of achieving success as an Entrepreneur in the Music Business environment.
After relocating to Miami with his Mother and Sister in his Teenage years, Lucien used music as an outlet of expression to cope with many personal trials and tribulations growing up in Brooklyn & Miami. He found a Niche in DJ’ing while he attended high school in the mid 90’s; the business opportunities that where created based on his love of music was all the confirmation that he needed to pursue his goal and manifest his visions in the Entertainment Industry. He was under the wing of DJ EFN and DJ N.V (NVS Styles) in Miami, and played an instrumental part of the Hip-Hop Radio Show “Sewer Series” that was syndicated throughout the Armed Forces Radio Network from 1996-1999, originally conceived as a mixtape series focusing on exposing independent artists and hip-hop music to a world wide audience throughout the network. Throughout this tenure, he attended Florida International University after graduating High School to obtain a Business Management Degree while working full-time to pay for his tuition in the retail industry.
His ambition at such an early age of 23 paid off as he was offered a corporate management position in New York City for CVS Pharmacy in the year 2001. After accepting the position, he used the opportunity to find a break in the Music Industry by DJ’ing at various events in New York City contributing to the Hip-Hop Community, which lead to his first opportunity gaining access inside the entertainment industry as an Promotions Intern for Fatbeats Records; arguably on of the most celebrated independent outlets of hip hop music throughout the world!
After years of exposure in ‘Corporate-America’ gaining the tools needed to manifest his vision in the industry, he decided to resign and attend school Full-time again, this time at one of the most prestigious Multimedia Schools in the country, Full Sail University, in Orlando Florida in 2006. Throughout his time at Full Sail, he acted as the Vice-President for the MEISA Chapter at Full Sail as well as an acting member of the Audio Engineering Society (AES) contributing to many events in the Music Scene in Orlando most notably, the Florida Music Festival through his time in Orlando.
After obtaining an Associates of Science Degree in Recording Arts and Bachelors Of Science Degree in Music & Entertainment Business with Honors, he decided to relocate to Atlanta, GA, to strengthen his ties and gain more exposure in the Music Scene in Atlanta in 2008. His first opportunity was an internship with 360 Music Group as an Audio Engineer Intern. After an abrupt ending with this company, he decided to freelance and offer his services to multiple studios around town. As a result, he gained experience of working with acts such as CHILI, ROCK CITY, ALGEBRA, DRUMMA BOY, and many other independent artists in Atlanta. In the winter of 2008, he was introduced to Nina K.
