Luis "2-Live" Lopez was born and raised on the North side of Chicago. It started really young for Lopez, early it was evident that this kid would be involved in the entertainment business in some way, shape or form. At five years old he was performing skits in the basement, for everyone in the neighborhood, listening to radio stations trying to imitate the disc jockeys, he was fascinated with the thought of being a performer. As he got older, Luis was introduced to a whole new level of entertainment. The meaning of performer would take a twist. We are talking about the DJ. This combined the 2 things he loves most, performing and music. At the age of 13, Luis bought some cheap turntables and started working on beat mixing and scratching. From that point on he started buying records and finally got 1200s at the age of 15. Luis primarily played old school House up until the late 80's. When techno came around, he started mixing Hip Hop, which eventually landed him a spot doing weekly mixes on a local college radio station. Eventually he ended up attending the college, which opened the doors for Luis to actually get involved in the radio aspect of things. He started doing on-air shifts and finally moved up to music director and handling the weekly dance mix show every Friday night on WCRX 88.1FM. then later he was hired at 92 Kiss FM, and went on to DJ and Host on Chicago's Premiere 24-7 Dance Station "Energy 927 & 5" Currently he hosts weekends on Chicago's Dance Factory Radio 927 and 999.
