DT820 – LUCATI
Music over everything. That is the motto that has propelled LUCATI’s music to the world’s largest stages.
Garnering support from House music legends such as John Summit, Dom Dolla, Dombresky, Harry Romero, Dennis Ferrer, Green Velvet, Chris Lake, Lee Foss and countless others has brought this House music producer straight from the underground, to the big show.
No stranger to festivals either, LUCATI has smashed EDC Las Vegas, EDC Mexico, HARD Summer, Audiotistic, Countdown NYE, and more. Despite his immense skill at DJing (ask him he’ll tell you), LUCATI doesn’t take music production lightly.
Having released on Off The Grid, Techne, Sola, Repopulate Mars, Kolme, Dirtybird, Ultra, and more… the future is bright for the handsome lad with a funny laugh. Mixing deep, unrelenting grooves with sensual minimal vibrations, LUCATI’s one-of-a-kind sound emerges to the forefront of the new wave.
Over ten years of experience have taught this now-veteran producer to keep it simple, keep it passionate, and keep it real. One listens to any of LUCATI’s impressive catalogue of music and you will know these mantras carry forth into his work. Recently coming off tour with Chris Lorenzo, LUCATI is amping up in 2023 with more music, more festival appearances (Skyline LA, more to be announced), and even more dad joke tweets.
Today, he joins us on the podcast for the first time. Listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here.
Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
A groovy, energetic hour of music that illustrates my creativity.
What’s your personal favourite track on it?
I stand by all of them, but if I had to live with the one I’d probably pick my record Inside. a beautiful, deeply moving roller that lifts you up and slams you down with caring hands.
What’s the special ingredient in this mix?
I created a lot of edits exclusive to this mix and made sure to blend records as I do in my live shows. Nothing like mixing two records together and coming up with something new.
Tell us about your next EP?
My next big release entitled Overnight will be on LOVEJUICE coming in March. Love what that label has been doing, and am excited to be a part of the catalog.
What have you got coming up?
I’ll be playing in Brooklyn, New York February 10th with Eskuche and soon after that you can find me at Skyline LA on February 26th. In terms of music, my plan for the year is to self-release the music I’ve been sitting on, either on my new solo imprint LOCOLUCA or my record label Kolme Records. And in between, I’ll sprinkle the big label releases.
Be sure to follow me on social media for upcoming tour dates and music releases, but whatever you do.. DO NOT follow me on Twitter 😛
And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Thank you to all my fans, new and old. You give me the fuel and motivation to be daring and true to my artistic self. I hope you all enjoy the mix and when you have the opportunity to do so, come see me live! If you’re a DJ yourself, I wish for you to dig deeper, and find new exciting records from unlikely sources. Take risks, and make unconventional decisions, while always being true to yourself. We need your unique voice for the scene to flourish.
