Where are you from ?
I live in the country side of Milan, Italy.
Earliest musical memory?
When I was in the cradle, maybe months before. Not only music but sound waves that actually started my listening experience.
Why and when did you start making music?
I started to approach with electronic music as a dj when I was very young. I came into music production only later, a few years ago. It was for the necessity to start to express myself through my own music, creating my own sounds.
How did you connect with Invisible, Inc. ?
The connection with Gordon and Invisible, Inc. started some years ago. I’m a big fan of the label and I got in touch with him to congrats for the music released. In particular I was enchanted from the mix of krautrock and cosmic vibes. I shared with him many of my music and when I recorded the album “Un’ Altra Forma Di Vibrazioni” I immediately thought that Gordon’s label would surely have been the right place where release it!
Some insight of the mix you recorded ?
This mix represents music that I loved over the years. It was very difficult for me to put together music that influenced me, because it’d be too much. In this selection you can find music from Italian artists only, from different periods 1972 to 2019. The key was to chose records that impressed me particularly from the first listening, that aroused in me strong sensations and filled me with emotions, positive and negative too. It’s like a back path where you can find part of the music I came across in the years and which have enriched me a lot and deeply inspired me as an artist and music producer.
