Archive is celebrating its 15th anniversary with a special compilation curated by Volcov, out now.
An artist, designer and creative talent who loves music. He's been collecting vinyls since the mid-90s, searching the music world for its less known aspects, its remote but intriguing corners.
Krauth, prog, jazz, dub, reggae, disco, afro, rock, blues, all immersed in mescaline. Attracted by the unusual but pleasing.
He travels the world looking for inspiration but without forgetting his roots.
He has a weakness for the pleasures of life and, why not, a few bad habits.
He searches the music world in all directions, every set in his own style, listening to and playing simply what touches him, leading you into a parallel universe, difficult to listen to on your own.
He's played in America, Italy,Japan,France, Switzerland, Germany, in the most b-side basements where music is not only for ears.
Art Director to several projects in the underground scene, like Garage Paradise from 2006 to 2009 (with djs of the calibre of Sadar Bahar), and Space is the Place from 2010 to 2014, where he was also resident dj.
With other djs and friends such as Twice and Volcov, he has contributed to the humus of 'Roots' in Verona, a rare and unique club in its dedicated search and passion for the 'blackest' music.
He's always involved in personal creative projects, such as exhibitions and artistic collaborations, where he can let his graphic and expressive freedom flow and where he then finds great inspiration for his music.
Since 2007 he has designed the “neroli” label, sharing emotions and musical projects.
He's in continuous motion, native and original in his choices, like his music.
Native with his Dj friend Twice,last year making a FLYING MACHINES......A new Project....
