With passion for bass and a thirst for blood, Drop the Lime (DTL) weaves a baroque nighttime fantasy, riding the range from the ashes of rave into the dark heart of rock & roll for his new album due out this July on Ultra Music, Enter The Night. Combining the gun-slinging swagger of Ennio Morricone, the techno grandeur of Underworld, and the storytelling prowess of Johnny Cash, his music (like his life) is an epic adventure of mystery, heartbreak and magic.
The world knows Luca Venezia as a globetrotting DJ/producer and the founder of Brooklyn, New York’s Trouble & Bass label. As Drop the Lime, he’s been fearlessly casting spells over clubs and festivals around the world for years, as well as remixing the likes of Major Lazer, Robyn and Moby and producing for artists like, T. Mills, Spankrock and Bosco Del Rey. Venezia’s name is synonymous with dance music in New York – born and bred in Manhattan, the glittering, grimy pulse of the city is the main inspiration behind DTL’s now-infamous heavy bass sound.
