Born and raised in Rome, in the shadows of the great masters of classical art forms, Francesco Luigi Lenci began his musical journey at the ripe age of nine with an interest in rock and reggae and the development of piano and guitar skills. Like so many of us, by 17 years-old, he had fallen in with the jungle, hip-hop, and techno crowd, fostering an obsession with synthesizer and computer music that persists to this day.
He would go on to spend several years earning degrees in sound design/engineering and music technologies at the famed Italian Institute of Music Technologies, then subsequently moved to the electronic mecca of Berlin in 2012, where his passion took root in a multi-prong assault on speakers worldwide.
As a wizard of mixing and mastering at his own Re:set Studio, he mixed Italian contemporary jazz trio Chat Noir's 2014 full-length Elec3cities for RareNoise Records, produced and performed on an '80s influenced ballad by Ryan Paris, and recorded and mastered the tripped-out jazz record Impermanence by Steintiger for Unit Records, among other projects. However, it's in his own work that he truly indulges his aural fantasies.
His glitch-hop and dubstep-tinged live sets have been the highlight of festivals such as Freqs of Nature by Full Moon, Odyssee, Modem, Feel, Electropolis, and Italofest, while his remixes and original works under the names of Cooked Audio and Re:set have been released by labels like Adapted, Sostanze, Looney Moon Experiment, Rub-A-Duck, Only Good Shit, Restylers, Subculture, Irma, Another Chance, Ammunition, Heavy Bassweight, and Stupid Fly Records. That's quite a resume on its own, but there is now a cherry on that sundae.
