Born on 14th August 1973, Italy. At the age of 15 he was already very keen on black music, especially on the worldwide hip hop scene. Then at the age of 18 he started broadcasting on the radio producing radio shows that were based on the club culture. He quickly evolved and found his new inspiration in the electronic scene and he soon gained a good reputation as a keen and versatile one in club culture and new sounds. He was ranked amongst those djs who can’t be classified with regard to the genre and style. He has got a very extensive and well constructed musical knowledge including hip hop, breakbeat, drum’n’bass and house music. He quickly began to travel world- wide getting in touch with the international music scene and in particular the Drum’n’bass British scene. During the last ten years, besides giving his full attention to the electronic scene in the European underground he also started performing at the top important clubs.
Luca embodies a restless spirit and is constantly searching for that cutting edge sound… his strong identity always has chosen originality rather than easy work, taking risks with each of his dj sets as his productions. Luca Bacchetti has produced with Antonio Pocai several enormously successful releases and remixes on Tenax Recordings, the label run by Alex Neri and Marco Baroni, Safari Electronique, Glueckskind Shallplatten, and also on Mathew Jonson’s and Konrad Black’s label Wagon Repair. His productions, regularly played by dj ’s such as Richie Hawtin, Mathew Jonson, Konrad Black, Mathew Dear, Wighnomy Brothers, Sven Vaeth, Alex Neri, BBC Radio 1, definitely kept the minimal techno world on its toes over the past years: anyone who has just the slightest interest in minimal techno will know his famous track, a remix of “stop” by Bini & Martini, which became the 1 beatport download for two consecutive weeks last August. Luca Bacchetti mixes a lot of dark and somber minimal techno sounds, many of those obviously among his own productions but without ever losing sight of the brighter side on the other end of the tunnel. Through his focus on music quality, as well as his performance on international level, Luca Bacchetti has become one of the biggest names in the minimal house scene, His djing talent are also in demand, with gigs, at the top worldwide clubs in London, Berlin, New York, Ibiza, Mexico, Barcelona, Zurich… Since 2004 he is one of the artists of Samurai Fm.
