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 peoples 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.
Venezias new record, We Never Sleep, was created entirely by him and his digital hardware, but hes got high hopes for possible collaborations.
In his words, I really want to work with a full orchestra and my laptop thats my ultimate dream, even since I was a kid.
