Luca graduated from Bauhaus Universität Weimar, faculty Gestaltung, in multimedia communication and interactive design. Prior to this time, he was DJing in local clubs and illegal rave parties across Milan. After his degree, he received a scholarship to the Bauhaus Universität and the University of Music Franz Liszt in Weimar; furthering his musicianship and knowledge of the technical side of the production process.
Now living in L.A, Luca Draccar has released one single, one EP, and two albums. With tracks like ‘Voulez vous coucher avec moi’ amassing almost fifty-four thousand streams on Spotify alone, it’s safe to say that he has a dedicated following of loyal fans.
Our featured track, ‘Never Settle’, lasts six minutes and twelve seconds and sits at 129bpm. It is one of three new tracks dropping in Luca Draccar’s latest EP entitled: Flamboyant.
The track commences with a fourteen second introduction that utilises eclectic synth sounds to build anticipation for the proceeding percussive drop. The main beat kicks in at the 0:15 mark and is met with a rhythmic bass riff that subtly swells in the mix. A variety of ambient and atmospheric elements are systematically dropped into the mix throughout the track; creating moments of partial dissonance that are resolved by the clear-cut percussive transitions regulating the rhythmic flow.
Although the pace of the single remains at a steady intensity, a momentary percussive break occurs from around 4:54 to 5:01; allowing for an instrumental line that expresses creative flare whilst also providing dynamic diversity. From the well balanced mix to the memorable melodic flow of the instrumentation, fans of Luca Draccar, as well as those who appreciate new and creative electronic music, will definitely want to hear this single in addition to the full EP.
