Drop the Lime, aka Luca Venezi, head of New York’s Trouble & Bass label, is the epitome of cool, releasing mutant bass music and looking like an extra from a hip Amy Winehouse video. So, following this year’s Fabric mix, the joint release of single ‘Hot As Hell’ with Ministry of Sound’s Data records signals a step up into the big dick swingers league.
Featuring him playing the lady-lovin’ lead in a rockabilly band the video is filmed, where else, but London’s tattoo dense East End, and remixes from Canblaster, Para One, Will Bailey, Nouveau Yorican (aka Laidback Luke & Gina Turner), VANDALISM, Yolanda Be Cool and Lil Silva ensure it’ll be an inescapable anthem when it’s released on 30th January ahead of his album ‘Enter the Night’.
