Lukas Plöchl

Lukas Plöchl was born to a Chinese father and an Austrian mother in northern Austria. As a child, he played table tennis and football before turning to music. He began making rap music under the alias G-Neila in 2007.

In 2010, Lukas formed Trackshittaz with Manuel Hoffelner. The same year, he took part in the Austrian talent show Helden von Morgen, where he finished in second place and introduced Trackshittaz to a national audience. Trackshittaz then finished second in the Austrian national final for Eurovision 2011 with “Oida taunz!”. Although it did not win, “Oida taunz!” went to number 1 on the Austrian Singles Chart, the first song by an Austrian hip hop group to do so.

In 2012, Trackshittaz represented Austria in the Eurovision Song Contest in Baku with “Woki mit dem popo”. In 2013, Lukas released his self-titled debut solo album. Trackshittaz later split up in 2015.

In 2016, Lukas released some singles under the new name Wendja, before releasing his second solo album “Poet & Prolet” in 2017.
