Brooklyn, NY - In early 2006, Drop The Lime – a.k.a. Luca Venizia – put out an LP on Kid 606’s Tigerbeat6 label called “We Never Sleep,” and since has continued to live up to the declaration. September of 2006 was the launch of Trouble & Bass, a monthly party in Brooklyn that has since grown to be one of the biggest and most respected events in the national DJ community. Bringing in some of the bigger, rarer names, the collective is comprised of several personalities that are a roster of full talent. Drop The Lime, who also performs his darker vintage-tinged material under the alter-alter ego Curses!, is one of the Trouble & Bass power players, as well as a combustible personality.

That said, there’s also his DJ sets, which are the stuff of constant rotation. If MP3s could wear like cassette tapes, then our recordings of the first several Trouble & Bass mixes would have been dead and gone for months already. One of the most viral of all was the Trouble Mix #4, which solidified his presence around the time that Discobelle and other tastemakers around the world caught on.

This May, Basstown presents to you a lengthy live set from Drop The Lime. Both Die Young and Volvox are fans and familiar of his work, and this’ll be one of those memorable occassions where the music is at its fullest harmony. Don’t miss out on the 5 hours of dancefloor disorder this Saturday at Great Scott.
