14 FAKTS INTERVIEW WITHLuke Brancaccio & Gai Barone

Interviewed by GBS , August.2.2022

Q: How would you describe yourself in one word?

Luke: Discombobulated

Gai: Happy

Q: What was the driving force that got you into Music Production and when?

Luke: My mother used to work at Island records, I attempted to do my first tune on a Korg M1 around 1989

Gai: It was so many years ago, it’s just like a physical need for me, I think it’s Pink Floyd’s fault… I listened to something from them and suddenly fell in love with it.

Q: Analog or Digital? And why?

Luke: Both have different things going for them and nowadays it’s harder and harder to tell the difference. But just out of nostalgia I love Analog.

Gai: Anything that helps me to make better music 

Q: What's your favorite venue and why does it stand out from the rest?

Luke: In London I’d go for Printworks, it’s just been executed perfectly, sound, staff, layout, everything. My other fave club would be Warung because you just can’t beat the feeling of playing in the middle of a rainforest.

Gai: Fabric, London. The first time I played there I felt like it was home.


Q: What makes a DJ set standout from the rest?

Luke: Not playing the same music as everyone else and being able to curate that music perfectly.

Gai: Music selection, credibility, and being authentic and yourself; always  

Q: If you were to have a superpower, what would it be and why?

Luke: Time Travel, for so many reasons. I could go back & right all my wrongs.Gai: The Power to fix this broken world, quite self explanatory.
  Q: 1 person you'd dream to have a coffee with?

Luke: Gai Barone, but maybe a beer not coffee. We haven’t actually met in person yet but that all changes when we play together for the first time at club NL for ADE festival in Amsterdam later this year (October 2022).

Gai: Marvin Gaye.

Q: If you would have been given the chance to do a film score from the past, what movie would you choose and why?

Luke: I would love to have done Bladerunner although the soundtrack is pretty much perfect. It’s my favourite film so to be able to put music to those aesthetics would be amazing.

Gai: It’s an Italian movie, Nuovo Cinema Paradiso, the soundtrack is by Ennio Morricone, I think I’ve never found a more perfect match between a script and it’s soundtrack, every shade of the film is perfectly covered and supported by the incredible touch of the Maestro.

Q: Recommend a hidden gem in your home country that would fit a perfect rave?

Luke: Buckingham Palace. Have a right royal knees up.

Gai: I’ve been in Sicily recently and I would recommend pretty much anywhere right here, people are so amazing and the countryside and the seaside are incredible.

Q: What are 3 tracks that got you into electronic music?

Luke: Leftfield ‘Not Forgotten’, Sil ‘Windows’ and Gat Decor ‘Passion’.

Gai: LFO ’LFO’, Frankie Knuckles ‘Your Love’ and The Martian ‘Stardancer’.

Q: Tell us about your upcoming releases and plans for this year.

Luke: We’ve just released All I Need on Music To Die For which has topped the Beatport release charts in electronica and progressive and is just getting started. But we have so much more coming up. More music on Bedrock, an incredible new EP on Music To Die For and our first release for Sudbeat which has just been signed.

Gai: Working on 7 different remixes atm, and an incredible album together with Luke and Kiki Cave, along with some brand new singles, an original soundtrack for a movie and well…. Lots more!

Q: Tell us a fun fact about yourself that most of your listeners don't know.

Luke: I was a pro Skateboarder

Gai: The best tracks I ever made, are full of unpredictable mistakes.

Q: Last but not least, do you have any questions for the viewer/reader?  

Luke: What colour underpants you wearing?

Gai: Where would you like to see us playing together??
