Getting Familiar with Local Favorite DJ: Eric D-Lux
The Strip staples shares his nightly favorites and an LOL-worthy story
Eric Delatorre goes by Eric D-Lux on the stages of the biggest and best clubs in Las Vegas. Hailing from Carson, California, the DJ began playing Vegas in 2006 and worked his way up to become a local favorite among the nightlife scene. He currently brings his open-format vibes all over the Strip at clubs like Tao, XS, Light, Omnia, and Marquee. We had the Vegas regular DJ fill out a Q&A for us to find out his faves and tips, but you can also follow him on IG at @ericdlux for updates:
Drink of choice: vodka with soda
Favorite late-night food: 24-hour Buffalo Wild Wings’
Favorite performer on the Strip: I enjoy watching DJ Vice play!
Favorite pregame spot: Clique at Cosmo
How do you wind down after shows?
I usually end up meeting up with fellow DJs for food.
What’s your craziest Vegas story (that you’re willing to put on the Internet)?
I once fell asleep during a shoulder rub at the strip club and she said I owed her over $400!
Any hobbies outside of music?
I like to draw and paint. I love art.
What else are you up to career-wise?
I have some new music in the works now with DJ Five. Together we perform as Faed (Five and Eric D-Lux). Very excited about the music—and we’re going a U.S. tour this year as well!
