DROP THE LIME Unveils New Single “Bandit Blues” May 22 On Ultra Music
NYC-based producer/DJ DROP THE LIME—born Luca Venezia–is branching out. For his album ENTER THE NIGHT, out July 3 on Ultra Music, he adds songwriter, guitarist and vocalist to his credits. With passion for bass and a thirst for blood, he weaves a baroque nighttime fantasy, riding the range from the ashes of rave into the dark heart of rock & roll. The first official single from the album is “Bandit Blues,” out May 22, with its accompanying video to be made available soon.
His music (like his life) is an epic adventure of mystery, heartbreak and magic, combining the gun-slinging swagger of Ennio Morricone, the techno grandeur of Underworld, and the storytelling prowess of Johnny Cash. As influenced by Ritchie Valens as Richie Hawtin, “Bandit Blues” finds Venezia marrying his blues guitar licks and unmistakably sultry croon to the sheer dance music wizardry that has become his trademark. It was New York City—where, in addition to New Orleans and London, he recorded the album–that was the draw for “Bandit Blues.”
“Being born there and having so much love for the city means I wear it on my sleeve,” says Venezia of ENTER THE NIGHT’s first single. “It’s an incredible inspiration for me, but right now, it feels like there’s a lot of struggle going on with the economy and the people. The economy being a mess, politics being a mess–everything is a mess. The only way to really enjoy it is through music.”
To support the track, DROP THE LIME will embark on a select number of DJ dates. From now until the end of June, he’ll appear in Austin, Los Angeles, Miami and New York City. Complete dates and venues are:
Thu 6/14 Austin, TX Beauty Bar
Thu 6/21 Los Angeles, CA Drai’s Hollywood
Sat 6/23 Miami, FL Grand Central
Fri 6/29 New York, NY Webster Hall
Fri 7/13 Ottawa, ON RBC Royal Bank Ottawa Bluesfest
