Drop The Lime

Everyone comes from somewhere, but some people wear the cities they’re from like badges of honor. Drop the Lime is Luca Venezia, one of those people whose identity is intrinsically connected to his hometown – New York City. While many have only just heard of the magic of Drop The Lime, Luca has been honing his craft for years. From his humble beginnings as a choirboy to a childhood obsession with ’50s rock ‘n’ roll, the 27-year-old has been experimenting with his sound for years in the underground electronic scene, recording for label’s including Kid 606’s TigerBeat6, Diplo’s Mad Decent, and French label Institubes (under his alter ego “Curses!”). Drop The Lime’s influences range from Brian Eno to rockabilly (he’s well known for his doo-wop and soul sets) to Sonic Youth to Wu-Tang but things don’t stop there. Since 2006, he has also run Trouble & Bass, an influential New York club night and record label that is defining the new sound of New York, one heavy bassline at a time.
