Currently residing in Barcelona, the DJ, producer and co- label head makes swift business of spreading his signature twists and musical turns through myriad productions and remixes released on Ovum Recordings, Crosstown Rebels, Wagon Repair, Be As One, Defected, Supernature, Sci+Tec, Tenax, Safari Electronique and of course his label, Hideout.
Additionally, he’s accrued a host of accolades including a nod for Beatport’s best artist in 2008 that confirms Luca’s status as an industry leader. As a DJ, Bacchetti’s style is incomparable, showcasing his unique ear for selection and rare ‘voice’ to which he adds a sexiness uncommon amongst his peers. Equally versed at moving a dark basement club to fits of revelry as he is to casting a deep shadow across a sunny beach party, the breadth and depth of sources from which Luca culls his sets astounds constantly. It is this duality of emotion that interests the DJ and inspires the work on many releases.
The contrasting shades of Luca’s sound have not been lost on the world’s clubbing masses. Worldwide venues like Womb, Fabric, Circoloco DC10, Cielo, Watergate, Arma 17 have hosted the DJ to untempered excitement and have been converted to the light of the darker and brighter sides of his sound....
