Curses, AKA Luca Venezia, plays dark, romantic house and techno, punctuated by ethereal melodies, pounding rhythms and flashes of ’80s Italo disco.

Born in New York to Italian parents and now residing in Berlin, Venezia’s DJ sets and productions are anchored in house and techno, but pull together everything from cinematic film scores to post punk. These eclectic influences collide in a unique blend of hard-hitting grooves and dreamy, nocturnal vibes.

Alongside his productions and DJ sets, Venezia has officially remixed tunes for the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Skream, Amtrac, Armand Van Helden, Moby and Petite Meller.
