This is a star in the ascendant. Luca has been quietly emerging as one of the hottest new talents
in house and techno. It’s been a gradual and relentless rise up the ranks with a number of
critically acclaimed projects and an impressive list of achievements to his name. In the past
year he has had three songs named Essential New Tune by Pete Tong, joined up with Hot
Natured, picked up a residency at DC10 in Ibiza and even cracked the UK top 40.
A few years ago, after his former band Cazals split up, he began toying with the idea of
making and playing house and techno. Luca's creative outlook saw him team up with various
members of the electronic music fraternity, becoming part of several key working relationships
all of which have made their mark on the underground house scene.
As one half of Luca C & Brigante he produced the timeless Morals, featuring Ali Love on vocals.
Later he worked with house legend Robert Owens on Tomorrow Can Wait followed by Roisin
Murphy, of Moloko fame, on Flash Of Light – each track becoming a success in its own right
and helping to further cement Luca's reputation as a formidable producer.
In tandem with this, he was involved in initiating the intriguing multi-artist project Invisible
Cities, a collective comprised several musicians and vocalists who recorded a forthcoming
album together on the magical white island, Ibiza.
Further achievements came with Infinity Ink, another two-man project – this time formed with
singer Ali Love. Their debut single was Games, an emotional yet dancefloor ready smash that
made a mark in 2011 later followed by one of 2012's biggest anthems, the ridiculously
infectious Infinity. Both the original and the Claude Vonstroke remix were named Essential
New Tune on Pete Tong's seminal Radio 1 show, while their live show saw them booked to play
all over the globe from tours of the US to gigs across Europe and South America.
He has also secured down a residency at the hallowed grounds of DC10 in Ibiza, a dream come
true for someone who has spent many a day and night partying at the world-renowned
underground club. As part of the Hot Creations Paradise event he has played several times
over the summer, playing a grooving techno set before DJ Harvey among his personal
highlights. He also played at the legendary Robot Heart sound system at Burning Man, another
standout moment in 2012.
And late last year, Luca's Midas touch was recognised by Jamie Jones and Lee Foss who invited
him to join forces with them as the DJ and production duo prepared to take on the world by
transforming their Hot Natured setup into a full-blown artist project.
Their first official single Benediction has already made quite an impact, hitting the UK top 40 in
its first week of release and picking up plenty of daytime play on Radio 1 – virtually unheard of
for a track released via an independent label. As a key member of the Hot Natured quartet
Luca has been responsible for songwriting along with Ali Love, Lee Foss and Jamie Jones,
working towards a highly anticipated album and live show, which hits the road in 2013. Luca's
experience with bands making him an essential part of the group, who will play gigs at the
world-famous Brixton Academy, among many other venues in 2013.
Such an extensive list of achievements would lead many to become complacent and rest on
their laurels, but Luca's vision goes beyond his collaborative projects with his heart set on a
solo album in 2013. Plans are afoot to redirect his creative juices into his very
own project, for which he will provide the majority of the
Humble and hardworking, Luca C's talents invigorate every project he lends his hand to and
his ever-growing list of achievements is a testament to that.
