This is a star in the ascendant. Luca has been quietlyemerging as one of the hottest new talents in house and techno. It’s been a gradual and relentless rise up the ranks witha number of critically acclaimed projects and an impressive list of achievements to hisname. In the past year he has had three songs named Essential New Tune by Pete Tong, joined upwith 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 toyingwith the idea of making and playing house and techno. Luca's creative outlook saw him team upwith various members of the electronic music fraternity, becoming part of several keyworking 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, featuringAli Love on vocals. Later he worked with house legend Robert Owens on Tomorrow Can Wait followed byRoisin Murphy, of Moloko fame, on Flash Of Light – each track becoming a success inits own right and helping to further cement Luca's reputation as a formidable producer.
And late last year, Luca's Midas touch was recognised byJamie Jones and Lee Foss who invited him to join forces with them as the DJ and production duo prepared to take onthe 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 HotNatured quartet Luca has been responsible for songwriting along with Ali Love, Lee Foss andJamie Jones, working towards a highly anticipated album and live show, which hits the roadin 2013. Luca's experience with bands making him an essential part of the group, who will playgigs at the world-famous Brixton Academy, among many other venues in 2013.
Such an extensive list of achievements would lead many to become complacent andrest on their laurels, but Luca's vision goes beyond his collaborative projects withhis heart set on a solo album in 2013. Plans areafoot to redirect his creative juices into his very own project, for whichhe will provide the majority of the vocals himself.
Humble and hardworking, Luca C's talents invigorate every project helends his hand to and his ever-growing list of achievements is a testament to that.
