Drop The Lime Experiments With Sinatra And Laptop Dance Music

BRISTOL, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – When you play electronic “experimental dance” music made mostly on a laptop, singing like Sinatra may not seem like a natural fit.

But Luca Venezia, aka Drop the Lime, is a rising star on the electronic DJ circuit who can step up to a mic and deliver smooth, sexy vocals while performing onstage – something that sets him apart from more famous electronica acts like Crystal Method, the Chemical Brothers and DJ Paul Oakenfold.

According to Venezia, most people’s ideas about electronic dance music are based on “bad Euro-trash techno, like the Sprockets sketch on Saturday Night Live – or the guys from A Night At The Roxbury.

But, he adds: “Bands like Radiohead are making it cool for rock fans to get into the possibilities of laptop music, thank God.”

Venezia’s new record, We Never Sleep, was created entirely by him and his digital hardware, but he’s got high hopes for possible collaborations.

In his words, “I really want to work with a full orchestra and my laptop – that’s my ultimate dream, even since I was a kid.”
