Tell us a bit about yourself:
When I bumped into James Brown’s “It’s a Mother”, I discover my own religion: Funk.
Soon I became very fond of black music and started to build my own taste listening to Soul, Funk, R’n’B, Hip hop, Jazz and so on. I spin records since I was 16 with curiosity and passion, working hard by little clubs in northern Italy up to Ibiza. Due to the huge amount of music inside my head, I start producing my own stuff, original tunes and some remixes (Jamiroquai, Jovanotti, MNEK).
I signed for the labels Skip Intro Records, Furry Tea Cup Records and Aenaria Recordings, recording some good EPs. Some of my favorite Djs/producers are: Kerry Chandler, Little Louie Vega, Moodyman, Theo Parrish, Kenny “Dope” Gonzales, Black Coffee, Derrick May, Dj Harvey, Volcov.
In my sets I prefer traditional set with vinyl and turntables.
