Italian DJ and producer Luky aka Luca Grasselli has seen his work on many top labels over the years including Spaceland Records, Infinity Label, Antura Records and Recovery Tech.

Throwback intros with a superb big beat themed drum arrangement that provides a cool shuffling groove before a fantastic chunky kick comes in and takes the groove firmly into the realms of house music. The bassline pulsates right through the track and gets the groove moving as a myriad of percussions let the rhythms loose. On the break a haunting, swirling synth builds creating a colourful texture to the sound as cool spoken vocals hit out. A seriously energising masterclass in drum arrangement that will definitely have floors shakin.
Cigarettes & Joint sets off with a cool snappy snare and rising bass tone to the backdrop of hushed voices. A nice big punchy kick comes in and is joined by a throbbing, deep bass that dominates the sound. Various drum layers are added and a shuffling rhythmic groove is born that will have the hips gyrating in time. Cool spoken vocals litter the sound alongside short, one shot guitars and synth stabs that add character to the groove. A proper deep and driving slice of tech that will not disappoint.
