It's usually very easy to make sense of what a new pop thing is and how it came to be, but when one of Luigi's tracks arrived in the office last year the whole 'package' seemed slightly confusing, not helped by the odd behaviour of two members of the Popjustice messageboard, one of whom was clearly somehow involved in the project. As time went by and more big name producers and writers — none of them particularly cheap to get on board — were associated with Luigi things became even more confusing and by the time one of the biggest production talents on the face of the planet was purportedly involved we decided it was time to confront Luigi. We had decided by this point that he was either a rampant fantasist or the figment of another rampant fantasist's imagination.
Anyway, he came to the office so he definitely exists. During his visit last week we asked him some frank questions and he gave us some frank but still rather mysterious answers…
Popjustice: What if the money runs out?
Luigi: It won't.
…but refused to drink a cup of tea because he doesn't drink hot drinks (?!?!). Rude.
His first proper single is called 'The Look' and it's out later in the year; it's today's Song Of The Day so you can listen to it by clicking here.
