Biography

Born in Italy soon to be moving at the tender age of 6 to find home with his family in Belgium, country where pioneer techno labels such as R&S and Music Man found a home too.

Strongly influenced by the early sound of electro and hip hop and by movies such as Wildstyle, he progressively got more interested in the electronic sound.

He started expressing his love for techno music through a pair of decks but soon realized he needed something more and started producing.

When he moved in Bristol (UK) he found a very dynamic musical scene and started together with D-Gelo promoting succesful club nights Out Of Phaseand later Cuisine that brought some of the best electronic music acts to the city, and that became one of the most important audio-visual collectives in the UK. During these years he refined his dj skills playing alongside the world.

In 2003 he finally decided together with D-Gelo to form officially Micropunto Schallplatten, a concept that both had in mind for a long time and that today is reality. Now he is living in Barcelona working for the German audio software company Steinberg and continuing his work in the studio, always giving his techno a focus on its dubbiest and Detroit side.
