Best glasses ever! Wally Lopez, currently ranked #62 by DJ Magazine will be in DC this Thursday to showcase the best Spain has to offer. Having worked with the likes of Madonna and David Guetta, the Spaniard with the funky glasses is guaranteed to bring a hip European flow to Lima Restaurant & Lounge.
Whether you’re a fervent supporter of electronic music, someone who’s looking for a sophisticated dance club, or the occasional patron of DC Nightlife, Lima provides a chic atmosphere while still allowing you to sweat it out on the dance floor.
Wally began his professional career at the age of 13 on Spanish radio. While most kids his age were discovering the opposite sex, Wally was broadcasting to thousands and eventually hundreds of thousands of listeners. In 2000 the 24 year-old Lopez produced “Amman,” his first international hit, followed by “Patricia Never Leaves the House,” and “Disco Night.” Supported by the likes of past Glow DJs Steve Lawler and Hernan Cattaneo, those three tracks planted Lopez on the international radar. In 2004 Wally’s remix of David Guetta’s “Just a Little More Love,” helped cement both artists’ celebrity.
Since 2001 he has been stuffing his trophy case with awards for Best Production (Deejay Mag 2001, 2004), Best International Newcomer (Ibiza Deejay Awards 2002), Deejay of the Year (Deejay Mag 2005-2008), and a slew of others.
Today Wally Lopez is a brand. With his own clothing line, a partnership with Vueling Airlines and the distinction of being the only non-athlete sponsored by Oakley, he has started to transcend music. Last year he was named an Ambassador of Dance4Life, an organization created to fight AIDS amongst youth. As a humanitarian Lopez also collaborated on the “Mixing for Haiti,” project where he released the hit track “Rhythm of the Night,” with fellow Spanish star Marta Sanchez.
Now is the time to see what the hype is about. With a compilation for the world famous Global Underground series due out this month, this Spanish master of house will without question be bringing his “A” game to Club Glow.
