Luigi Emanuele Rocca
Profile:
The Italian electronic scene has been bubbling ferociously lately with some incredible talent and none more so than Turin based Luigi Rocca. The self-made producer and global travelling DJ also runs three of the most exciting record labels to emerge from Italy in the past 10 years - Hotfingers, Tuamotu and 303Lovers – alongside Manuel De La Mare and Alex Kenji. An international DJ in his own right Luigi has managed to forge a successful career circumnavigating the world performing at some of the planets most renowned and best-loved parties, where his unrivalled dexterity behind the CDJs has led to repeat bookings throughout Europe, North and South America.

When the likes of Tiësto, Richie Hawtin, John Acquaviva, Bob Sinclar, Dubfire and the notoriously impenetrable territory of Chilean megastar Ricardo Villalobos have all supported your music, it is perhaps fair to say that your sound is something of a mystifying one to pigeonhole. In the case of Luigi Rocca that is exactly the problem many have had when attempting to label his myriad of releases from over the years. With a back catalogue that stretches well beyond 200 releases, Luigi (also known as Marshall) has managed to reach virtually every corner of the electronic musical spectrum that is humanly possible.

Undeterred by his lifelong drive to fuse the elements of house and techno, Luigi has spent the past 10 years pushing his sound direct from his studio in Turin to dancefloors all around the world. It was this dedication, forged with a comparable high-spirited passion of Alex Kenji and Manuel De Le Mare, which led to the formation of the trios chart topping imprints Hotfingers, Tuamotu and 303Lovers. An acting co-owner with Alex and Manuel, Luigi finds time not only to pursue his own musical drives but also expand those of both future and established talent through the ever growing reach of these two recording imprints. To date all three labels have amassed a string of high profile releases and have under their respective umbrellas released material from a wide selection of artists that include Richard Dinsdale, Paul Thomas and Paolo Mojo. All of whom are a testament to the labels early dominance of the European music scene.

Playing his trade with his own productions Luigi has frequently found his music charting high within download sales and frequently being snapped up by esteemed labels from Toolroom Records, Tiger Records and 1605 to Stricktly Rhythm and Ministry of Sound.

In the past 18 months alone his releases have graced the Top 10 of various genre charts on Beatport – his single ‘Gipsy Sun & Rainbows’ held strong the number 5 spot in Beatport’s Top 10 deep house chart upon its release, whilst in the Beatport tech house chart tracks ‘1001 Nights’, ’Mom's Favorite’, ‘I Use To Dance In The Rain’ all charted in the Top 10 together with his remix for Moby's latest single ‘Perfect Life. Luigi also compiled one of the Toolroom Knights compilations together with Manuel De La Mare and Alex Kenji, and had the tech house track ‘Opa Locka’ the toolroom bestseller of 2012!Not to forget his unforgettable house remix of the classic ‘Keep on Jumpin’ that has been released on Joe Negro's label Z Records and stayed weeks on number one overall chart. .

Luigi Rocca reached the tops with the 2014 303lovers Tour he started with Manuel De La Mare,
having 303lovers events in the hottest locations like Pacha London, Lakedance Festival Netherlands, Club Citta in Japan to name a few and now he just announced a Ministry Of Sound London residency for 2014! January 2014 saw Luigi Rocca releasing his single “SHE” supported on BBC Radio 1, Roger Sanchez,Mark Knight and many more.. and remixing “The Perfect Life” from the legendary Moby on the label Little Idiot! His next release is called “Synesthesia” and will be out in April 2014!

Merging from the studio and home Luigi Rocca also appeared in the world's best clubs Womb-Tokyo,Pacha-London,The Egg-London, followed by tours in America. Russia , India, Mexico and Italy.
