Following a great talk with Radio Slave, the curiosity continues on the second episode of the Rave Curious Podcast with host Joshua Glazer. This time around, Joshua sits down in Berlin with New York native Luca Venezia, who is probably best known as the founder of seminal NYC label Trouble & Bass (RIP), as well as for his artist project Drop the Lime, which is currently on hiatus as he explores deeper realms of house and techno under his new DJ and production alias, Curses. Following the saddening discontinuation of T&B, Luca recently made a move towards a permanent residence in Berlin.

Check out the conversation as these two Berlin expats talk about the DJ-producer's recent move to the techno capital, Luca's early days being raised by artists in a pre-gentrification downtown New York, and his early career as an abstract electronic artist before breaking out in Brooklyn with the now-legendary Trouble and Bass parties. You might even hear about that time he found himself playing rockabilly to EDM fans in Las Vegas.

We also learn about a particularly amazing bathroom that Joshua is personally familiar with, as well as Luca's new label, Safer At Night. On the flip side, Joshua tells Luca some tales about coming up in Detroit's legendary 90s techno scene while the two laugh about trap music.
