drop the lime Sky City Rising (12", £7.50)label: brooklyn beats
Luca Venezia a.k.a. Drop the Lime has been one of America’s most prolific young electronic artists. Since his first EP on Ambush back in 2003 he’s released multiple singles and 2 LPs as Drop the Lime, as well as a handful of vinyls as half of Trouble & Bass. Now Brooklyn Beats is happy to introduce fans to a new direction in his sound. Here we have culled the three dancefloor tracks from his 5-track CD EP released in spring 2007. “Sky City Rising” is a conceptual vision based around Luca’s love for dub and the new dubstep sounds. Dub is the word as Luca flows on the dubstep dread of “Try Harder” with its plaintive strings and sharp percussion. “Fever Gasp” follows with a sound closer to Drop the Lime’s previous work, incorporating rumbling bass with snappy snares and definite breakcore and grime elements. “Glock Box” is also straight heavy American dubstep with its echo chamber keys and rolling sub-bass. Taken as a whole, Venezia has delivered a strong conceptual EP which sits nicely alongside his more uptempo material as Drop the Lime.
