Luci Neu House


2020 repress. Chilean/Swiss producer and DJ Luciano is a prominent figure in the global electronic club music circle. From a young age, he was exposed to music profoundly, as his father worked as a jukebox repairman and possessed a large record collection. When he was twelve, his mother gifted him a guitar, and shortly became a member of a school punk rock band. Soon after, his passion for electronic music rose. Inspired by Detroit techno and engaged by close friends like producer Dandy Jack, he started to play records in local Santiago De Chile dance clubs and became involved in the minimal techno scene around friends like Ricardo Villalobos. When Luciano moved back from Chile to Switzerland in 2000, he established a residency at Weetamix Club in Geneva, and started releasing his own productions on labels like Mental Groove and joining the Cocoon team in Ibiza to play at the famous Monday night at Club Amnesia. Since then, he's become a regular on the Balearic island with various residencies. Besides playing around the globe with the likes of Carl Craig, Richie Hawtin, or Loco Dice, he has released groundbreaking minimal techno and house on his Cadenza label since 2003. His very own music was always ambiguous. There is his club leaning creativity that can dance slightly into pop spheres while never forgetting the power of precisely sliced rhythms and subtle bass sensations. And then there is his calmer sider which displays his love for "music to listen at home, done for a spiritual travel, an inner universe and a moment paralyzed in ether," as he describes it. On his first ever Mule Musiq album release, Luci Neu House, Luciano now delivers meditative music journey full of repetitive patterns that slowly playing tricks on the listeners subconsciousness. Luci Neu House is a one-hour long composition whose esoteric deepness is reminiscent of the intensely meditative class of Luciano's older productions. An epic tune cut on vinyl into four 15-minute long pieces, the piece shifts slowly almost unperceived, whilst absorbing the mind of close observers into a micro-sliced world of moving gentleness. All new music composed by Luciano distributes a mesmerizing healing spirit, that grounds organically, even if it is totally rooted in the digital, software-driven world of composing music.
