Drop The Lime - FABRICLIVE 53

Regular price £10.00

Luca Venezia, aka Drop The Lime, is a difficult character to pin down. He runs one of the most influential labels in the emerging heavy bass party music circuit in the US (Brooklyn-based Trouble & Bass), and is as comfortable DJing the occasional all-rockabilly set at an underground bar as he is serving bass-heavy club throttlers to hundreds of hungry, obsessive fans, lost in a sea of T&B t-shirts and pumping fists. Similar to their creator, Drop The Lime's productions have an innate ability to disorient all traditional restrictions. Artfully fusing sounds and styles, his music manages to destroy the delicate politics of genres completely.

"I'm surprised I got away with putting rockabilly on a FABRICLIVE CD! I wanted to make the mix timeless; it's tempting to pick all of the cool hype tracks, or all of the newest tracks, but I wanted to make something that you could listen to a few years down the line and still love it. And it's something you can listen to, it's a mix, not necessarily something you want to pump your fist in the air to. That's what the club is for; I feel like a mix is for listening to and really appreciating the music. I start on the deeper side of things, a little bit of techy house and then I go into the new future garage sound that's coming out of London, like Untold, and then I go more into my signature heavy bass 4/4 sound into a little bit of Dutch-influenced stuff, into some tribal, percussive house tracks... it's all over the place, but I really tried to build a rollercoaster of a ride. It goes huge, then gets taken back down, and built back up, and really ends beautifully with some ambient stuff." Drop The Lime

Pigeonholes are gracefully obliterated, and Drop The Lime's signature all-in-the-box DJing style encompassed, on the thrilling, adventurous FABRICLIVE 53. As with all DTL mixes, the most unlikely beats and artists suddenly make perfect sense alongside one another: the raw 303s of Maurice introduce acid to Untold's future bump, Drop The Lime's own housey summer hit 'Sex Sax' steps and twirls to the swing of Bill Haley & His Comets, and the glittery synth pop of Little Jinder fades into the melodic grace of Reso's dubbed-out ambience. Filled with teasings of Drop The Lime's newest work, and of course his unmistakable vocals, overall the mix is every bit as rare and passionate - and unpredictable - as the charismatic artist himself.
