luca ltj trevisi (ltj xperience) began his dj / producer career in the 80s. as resident dj in two of the most famous italian clubs of the time, kinky in bologna and cap creus in imola, he was one of the first italian jocks to spin house and to re-propose those black music, jazz and latin-bossa classics from the 70s that at the end of  the same decade would have given birth  to  the acid jazz and rare groove movements. his  first single release in 1988, titled "first job", together with kekkotronics, was also the first release ever on bologna based irma records.  it was  featured  in a  lot of compilations of  the  time and entered several playlists, rapidly rea-ching cult status for many uk and us djs. during the early 90's ltj delivered a couple of singles in a kind of pre-breakbeat style: "don't stop the sax", released all over europe, and "funky superfly". he also produced us singer tameka starrs single going in circles, always for irma records, still a classic in the downtempo / r&b field. in the second half of the nineties luca began to produce acid jazz bands like bossa nostra, still today one of irma records main acts. their first album had vicky anderson as special guest and today is still con-sidered one of the most important european acid jazz albums. in the following years he concentrated on developing his activity as collector and rare vinyl merchant, which gave him  the chance  to get  in  touch with dj's from all over the world and to discover many forgotten gems from the past years. thanks to this experience he was able to create two extremely successful rarities series on irma records: groovy and suono libero. in the meanwhile ltj started to dj outside italy too, performing in important venues like the blue note and jazz café in london, giant step in new york and montreux jazz festival in switzerland. in 1999 saw the release of his first solo album under the ltj xperience moniker. the album was produced with the collaboration of fellow irma artist and producer ohm guru and had taka boom and jackson sloan among the guests. two of the main tracks on the album are brazil house classic sombre guitar and title track moon beat, which became a true hit of the chill out genre, featured  in dozens of  important compilations. after making countless productions  for  irma  records, including  their second album when the rain begins to fall  (with  the participation of  the historic spanish-american singer joe bataan), and the recents singles as organ mind / i love you (favorite track by larry heard ) & on the floor / sound machine, ltj is devoted almost exclusively to re-edit and reconstruct tracks from the past with the addition of sounds and rhythms in post production for labels like super value, small world disco, increasing  the  production  of  this  new musical  genre  that  is  currently  defined  as beatdown / slo-mo, working with labels such as far out recordings, sleazy beats, future classics, e.a.r., music for dreams, apersonal music. his latest album (released in 2012) "i do not want this groove to ever end" was such a great success, so much that the title track has been topping the beatport's chill out charts for over four months. the brand new album entitled "ain't nothing but a groove" continues on the same path as the previous one, where ltj discovers and digs deeply into the dark world of disco and 70's groove, like no one else can do mixing the newest sounds of today and with the same feeling that has now become his trademark1. what i feel
