"Lucien Nicolet aka Luciano has been a DJ since 1993 and a producer since 1997. In the mid-'90s, he was promoting Sense Club and Encuentros con la Technocultura in Santiago de Chile in the company of many initiators of the Latin American electronic music scene: Senor Coconut AKA Atom Heart, Ricardo Villalobos, Dandy Jack & brother Adrian Schopf, Washington Miranda, Argenix Brito, Microman etc. His releases also appear on the Transmat, Perlon, Klang Elektronik, Lo-Fi Stereo, Cadenza & Bruchstuecke record labels. Luciano's mixed Swiss and Chilean identity shows in his music, a somewhat mystical blend of deep techno and electro that integrates southern elements in rhythms and colorful patterns in sound. His collaborations with Ricardo Villalobos (Playhouse, Perlon, Warp, Force Inc etc.) as Sense Club are especially rewarding, as is his partnership with Pier Bucci and Argenix Brito as Monne Automne. He's also known to rock dancefloors with Carabina 30/30's knee-raising techno fest in the company of Martin Schopf aka Dandy Jack. Mellowing his style as times goes by, getting more experimental and spacey with a fresh style of his own, Luciano's production is destined to the wiser dancefloors. DJ-wise, Luciano's trade relies on groovy and minimal dancefloor techno and house. His releases top recommendation lists of noted European music journals such as de:Bug and Groove on a regular basis." --Beatfreax
