Since Luca Morrone was a baby he could feel his natural passion for music. He was born in 1982 and raised in Naples Italy, one of the most prolific music cities in the world (also known for such classic songs as "O Sole mio" "Torna a Surriento" and the musical instrument the "Mandolino" was born here).

From a very early age he began to buy his first records of Soul music and R'n'B (Initially his main inspirations were artists such as Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, so much Disco music and Music from Motown, as well as hip-hop, especially records where scratching is involved).

Later he found his true path in music when he discovered Victor Simonelli and Masters At Work. From that point on he knew exactly what he wanted to do in his life, That kind of music !

When he was just a teenager he showed very high skills in Selecting the right music to make people dance and dream.
He was just 18 years old, when he become dj resident
in club METROPOLIS (which was the best Club in Naples during that time. It was every DJ's dream in Naples to play there).
His popularity grew so much that he started playing at all the best clubs, all over south Italy.

In the 2000's together with his girlfriend PIA they founded "Neapolitan Soul" , playing a mix of soulful deep and afro house music, with up to 4 decks.
So many clubs, parties, and talent have come out of the heart of this city over the years, and Neapolitan Soul is Top talent from Naples, not to be missed.
