Lucy @ Electronic Explorations #193 [08.04.2012]

Lucy aka Luca Mortellaro, producer, DJ, founder of Stroboscopic Artefacts. There’s no doubt that the two are linked, but it’s certainly the hidden facets of Luca Mortellaro that are responsible for the dynamic output of Lucy.  In 2005 Lucy left his native Italy for Paris.  Lucy’s DJ sets range from the darkest techno, to the deepest industrial sounds and the most iridescent textures. Never one to shy away from ripping into the peak time and equally in his element playing the ecstatic afterhours, he manages to refuse the obvious and yet satisfies the dance floors’ appetite for the unexpected. A quick listen to his essential Resident Advisor mix, his contributions to the CLR Podcast or his wide ranging Palette for mnml ssgs will attest to one thing: he’s too angular for genres and pigeon holes. It’s this quality that’s seen him grace the decks of the world's most dynamic clubs and festivals: Berlin's Berghain, London's Fabric, Tokyo's Dommune and Freaks Village, Amsterdam's Trouw, Moscow's Arma17 and New York's Oktave party, not to mention Sonar, Melt and Tauron Festivals.  In parallel to his acclaimed DJ sets Lucy has created a stripped down project that is constantly mutating and evolving: Lucy Live. In 2011 Lucy's debut album on Stroboscopic Artefacts "Wordplay For Working Bees" was released to international critical acclaim. Releases like the "Banality of Evil" EP are indicative of the shape of things to come directly from Lucy as an artist and from the platform under his artistic direction: Stroboscopic Artefacts.
