He has collaboration with international artists of unquestionable fame and recorded with
prestigious labels, not least the famous ECM (both with his own projects and with Enrico
His career doesn’t stop only in jazz field: Gianluca has dedicated a substantial part of
his talent and his music above all to electronic music. Regarding to this dimension, it is
important to remember the publication of his vinyl "103" (EP published by
Records in 2014) in which the use of various electronic instruments and synthesizers helped
him to create the right atmosphere, intimate and rarefied, dark and cinematic; the same one
that Gianluca was able to create in the live version. "103" in fact, starting to a project totally
conceived and produced by Petrella himself, it has also become a refined and powerful live.
He has a lot of collaborations with very important musicians: from Matmos, to
Ricardo Villalobos and Max Loderbauer - in the project "Re: ECM" - from Moritz von Oswald
to individual projects with DJ Nicola Conte (they recently released two highly successful Eps,
"African Spirits" and "Sun Song") and Ralf, they created and shared the R.Ha.rf project, from
the fertile and intense collaboration with the Italian hip hop master, Dj Gruff, to the
celebrated "9lazy9" (Ninja Tunes).
