From Miss W’s blog: A letter to Luciano

Dear Luciano…

As most readers of my blog know, I’ve been quite an avid follower of yours for some time now (anyone who says I’m a stalker is just exaggerating, honest). In terms of the amount of time I’ve spent dancing while you’ve been in the DJ booth at various venues over the years in Ibiza, we’re probably on an even par. I was the first one to cheer when you made the move to Pacha, I wholeheartedly supported the Vagabundos guy-liner phase, I’m addicted to your parties at Ushuaia and I hang out for Wednesdays just waiting to hear your updates on the Cadenza Podcasts

But recently, there’s been just a few little things I’ve noticed that I was hoping we could discuss…

1. The pink hair. Could you please explain the significance to me? The transition from the sexiest handlebar moustache back in your DC10 days to highlights a la Katy Perry (who I must admit I also have a fondness for!) is pretty far-fetched. Is it an image makeover (clearly it’s a major part of your image in this year’s cool Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Hotel billboards and flyers)? A fashion-forward leap into the current trend of dip-dying? I’ve heard rumours it’s got something to do with Pink Floyd… but you can feel free to just admit it (between you and me) if it’s just because pink is your favourite colour. You know it’s mine right? In fact, I’m thinking about doing the EXACT SAME THING with my own tresses…

2. The heart symbol. Is it because you’re trying to send me a message when you can’t see me in the crowd that each and every time I see you lately, you’re holding up your hands in a heart symbol? While I totally appreciate the gesture and all, did you know, by doing so you’re also joining the ranks of pop stars – think Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Kylie Minogue, Usher and Katy Perry (there she is again) – all of whom are contributing towards said heart symbol trend becoming as recognisable as the peace sign, according to the New York Times.

3. Your penchance for playing ‘God Made Me Phunky’ and ‘Good Life’. Often together. Now, don’t get me wrong – I LOVE both these songs. They’re feelgood classics that truly make me put my hands in the air every time I hear them and rush for the dance floor if I’m not already there. But… for the sake of your own sanity – aren’t you getting a little sick of hearing them yet? Is there a reason why they always feature in your sets – like maybe they’re your own personal version of a lucky pair of socks or something? When I heard Reboot’s Cadenza Source Podcastrecently, I noted he’d also featured both tracks, albeit chilled out versions and I couldn’t help but wonder… was that an obvious salute to his label boss?

4. Your signature dance. While it’s great to see you having a good time and enjoying the music with a little boogie – by the way I have plans in the works to use it in the choreography for a Luciano flashmob at Ushuaia, hope you don’t mind – aren’t your arms getting a little sore every night? If you’re trying to multi-task and use your time behind the booth as exercise, I’m concerned you’re working yourself too hard… and we don’t want you to have to take any time off like your mate Ricardo Villalobos last year!

Answers on a postcard please! You know where to find me – front and centre every Thursday, Ushuaia Ibiza Beach Club and just by the DJ booth every Sunday night at Cadenza Vagabundos at Pacha!

Love Miss W xx
