Rowdy nights in hyper New York City consist of sub-heavy dive bars, sticky dancefloors, backflips off the bar, and smoke-filled limousines. Drop the Lime’s We Never Sleep is a headfirst dive into this after-hours world and its creatures of the night. The album, packed with four-to-the-floor funk spiked with grime and growling techno-bass, features eleven gritty club bangers dripping with romance and Italo-punk attitude.   “Wake Up Call” opens the album with a bomb of intoxicating dubstep. Over militant beats and bass, Luca Venezia (aka Drop The Lime) seduces listeners with a vocal intro, then snaps the track into a shake-and-break booty frenzy with guest-vocalist, Minty (Glassy Eyes, This Means Forever). Tracks like “Triceratops,” “E-Lock,” and “Hotsauce Grillz” are heavily influenced by recent stays in Berlin and the UK where Venezia performed at parties like Bristol’s Toxic Dancehall and London’s Bang Face. “Full Moon Rising,” “ButterScotch,” and “Coal Oven Fevers,” are Venezia’s first true verse-chorus-verse pop songs, and while still heavy on the dancefloor, these tracks make We Never Sleep more than just an album for DJs and club heads.  Venezia helped introduce UK grime and dubstep to US audiences with his Bangers & Mash parties and his live sets at Cut Crew’s Dirty Down, Dave Q’s Dub War, Konkrete Jungle, and a few epic Rothko events. With underground bass music taking off in 2006, Venezia’s dark grime, dangerous techno, and romantic vocals make him NYC’s obvious new bad boy Sinatra.
