SPECIAL 3x12″ EDITION INCLUDING FULL LENGTH VERSIONS In this version you’ll have the chance to get the the full length version of Celestial, Conspirer, Los Ninos de Fuera, Africa Sweats feat. Ali Boulo Santo and Metodisma which aren’t available on the CD versions of the album. It’s been nine years since Lucien Nicolet’s first record, and in that time he has earned his place among electronic dance music’s most celebrated names. He’s racked up singles for the likes of Mental Groove, Perlon, Desolat and of course Cadenza. He’s remixed everyone from M83 to Salif Keita, and his mix CDs for Fabric and Soma’s Sci.Fi.Hi.Fi. series have showcased minimal house and techno at their most sensual, supple and jubilant. And Luciano’s DJ sets have become the stuff of legend the world over. Throughout his career, the Swiss-Chilean musician has experimented liberally with longer formats, including a live album for Thomas Brinkmann’s max.Ernst label and 2004’s groundbreaking No Model No Tool, a recombinant set of groove components. But in all this time he has released only one proper studio album, 2004’s Blind Behaviour, which veered away from the dancefloor in search of more esoteric pleasures. At long last, with Tribute to the Sun, Luciano delivers one of the definitive highlights of his career. Not merely a “dance” or “electronic” record, Tribute incorporates musical styles from around the globe with Luciano’s inimitable rhythmic sensibility. It draws upon Luciano’s extensive experience as a mover of bodies and a reader of the crowd’s mind. Many of its grooves form an integral part of Luciano’s DJ sets, having been road-tested and continually refined. But it’s very much an album to be listened to front to back. (Most of the album’s cuts will also be made available as extended edits, for vinyl and download alike.) Tribute to the Sun is above all a highly personal portrait of the artist. Informed by the ups and downs of the artist’s life, and the balancing act between life on the r

De:Bug Magazin: “Irgendwie mag das Cover einen abschrecken, aber wenn man erst mal in den ersten Tracks versunken ist, und die Triple-EP bringt gleich 5 der Albumtracks in extralangen Versionen, dann merkt man, warum es irgendwie auch ein Glaube ist, der sich in dieser eigenwilligen Friedfertigkeit hinter dem Kitsch verbirgt. Es ist dieses glückliche Glitzern im Groove, diese Versunkenheit, die dennoch nicht in sich selbst aufgeht, sondern immer nach dem Licht strebt, nach diesem Punkt hinter dem Horizont, an dem mitten in den warmen perkussiven Rhythmen alles klar wird, sich neue Sphären (selbst bei der Beschreibung gleitet man noch in Kitsch) öffnen, ohne dass man sie nur beschwört hätte. Ich muss zugeben, weit mehr noch als die meisten seiner 12"s mag ich dieses Album sehr. Es ist Musik, die man erleben kann, aber auch nur hören darf, die immer richtig ist, ihre Faszination mit sich selbst umsetzt in eine Faszination mit den Elementen, eine Sicht auf den Floor, aber auch die Dinge vermittelt, die keine Ideologie ist, sondern etwas weit ephemereres, aber gleichzeitig auch weit klareres. Musik, bei der einem klar wird, warum man den Dancefloor so liebt, weil er immer über sich hinauswachsen kann, ohne das zu einer Richtlinie, einer Vorschrift, einer Anweisung tun zu müssen. Etwas, das man gemeinsam erlebt, aber auch alleine erleben kann, etwas dass viele ist, aber auch ich. ”
