At 16, Lucy aka Luca Mortellaro embarked on his journey of musical creation, experimenting firstly with analog synths. From these humble beginnings he started performing as a DJ, creating a name for himself as an underground artist in Italy. Once he moved to Paris in 2006 he decided to fully dedicate his life to electronic music. Lucy attracted interest from several labels and in 2007 had his first releases. These early tracks drew the attention of renowned artists including James Holden. It was Holden who introduced Lucy's work to Raphael Ripperton, prompting Ripperton to immediately release "Glass Computer" on his influential label, Perspectiv Records.
Through high profile invitations to remix tracks for artists such as Gui Boratto, labels like Tic Tac Toe Records and featuring on Fabric 38 mixed by M.A.N.D.Y., Lucy garnered his international reputation. He was warmly welcomed aboard Meerestief Records, a relationship that has allowed him to continually develop his musical identity with several EPs. Significantly, Meerestief also invited Lucy to compile and mix the Submerge CD, released in February 2009.
Collaborations with cutting-edge imprints including Curle Recordings, Ware, Time Has Changed and Brise inspired Lucy to launch his own Techno record label Stroboscopic Artefacts in September 2009, already supported by Speedy J, Luke Slater, Loco Dice, Len Faki, Edit-Select to name but a few. Supported by giants of electronic music such as Joris Voorn, Dj Hell, Steve Lawler, Derrick May, Laurent Garnier, Agoria, James Holden, John Digweed and more, Lucy is confirmed as one of the most interesting newcomers to the underground scene.
