ABOUT ME

Ciao,  I’m deejaying and producing music since mid 90s, ranging from Hip-Hop to Funk, Breakbeat, House and most recently Disco. I had the pleasure to release records on labels like KFM/Maffia, MòSmog, Functional, Mantra/Expanded, Strictly Groove, to collaborate with artists like Will White (Propellerheads), Howie B, DJ Rocca, to name few, and to play in many clubs and festivals all around Europe.

I love deejaying with vinyls but also  to perform live using samplers, synths, drum machines and all that vintage gear full of pots and buttons.

MUSIC PROJECTS

In the last 20 years I did many different solo and band projects. Some still workin’, some off the radar. Here a quick resume:

Past > Black Washing Machine, Zona Blu, 5th Suite, Antiamo, Pimpwax

Present > Maggico, The mood between, Daughters&sons

MUSIC FOR SCREENPLAY/PERFORMANCES

Open mind and curiosity brought me to work and perform with filmmakers, contemporary dance and theatre companies. Sometimes djing, sometimes writing music, sometimes acting, but always having fun. Here a few experiences I lived:

“Compleanno Pubblico Ballato” by Compagnia Abbondanza/Bertoni

“Privè” shortcut original soundtrack for

“Animali” by Collettivo Clochart/M. Di Mauro

“Iron wheels” by Compagnia Sisina Augusta

EDUCATION/STUDIO FACILITIES

Doing all this music is not only about writing it. You need to record, mix and master it. I own a small studio called “The Villa” where I have all what I need to make music and occasionally to do workshops or private teaching.
