Stroboscopic Artifacts, Token
Lucy is the nom de techno of Italian-born and Berlin-based Luca Mortellaro, one of the genre’s most exciting and ambitious DJ/producers. Since 2009, Mortellaro has focused his work through his own Stroboscopic Artefacts label, building an imprint and personal discography that has established itself as one of techno’s finest.
Studio-wise, Lucy releases his second solo album in 2014 for Stroboscopic, following his critically acclaimed 2011 debut Wordplay for Working Bees. In 2013 he released a collaborative album with Speedy J via the imprint under the name Zeitgeber. He’s also had solo releases on Chris Liebing’s CLR and Luke Slater’s Mote-Evolver – two labels that have been a home for collaborative 12-inches between him and Xhin (CLR) and Silent Servant (Mote-Evolver) in the past as well. Both Bleep and The Wire, meanwhile, have asked him to contribute tracks for compilations, tastemakers clearly eager to hear more of the sound that he has become known for: a bewitching hybrid of analogue love and digital know-how.
