Loris’passion for music began when he was a kid, in ’79, with his first
approaches to mixing using simply a cassette player and a radio. A few years
later he made his first live attempts: in ’82 playing drums with a couple of
friends, in ’87 with guitar and voice for the first live concerts with a rock-
blues cover band, and later on with a funky & soul band. From ’93 until ’98 he
had his first professional experiences with a “midi” duo and as DJ support and
vocalist in local clubs. In ’98, with the advent of CD players for DJs, Loris
decided to choose the path of DJing. At that time he proposed a variety of
genres ranging from drum&bass to 70s funky, from rock to house, and within some
time he became resident DJ in some alternative regional clubs (Arengo Disco, Matisse, Discofraska, ecc). From 2004 until 2010 Loris focused his DJing activity on electronic dance
music, starting with house and progressively moving to Techno. During this
period he played in clubs, both in Italy and abroad, and also worked with
worldwide known DJs like Sharam, Chris Liebing, Spiller, Autotune, Miss Yetti, Tom Clark, Woody, Alessio Bertallo, Paolo Barbato in several European cities including Rome (Alibi),
Barcelona, (ON Music Club) Slovenia (Ambasada Gavioli, Marco Polo) and others. In 2010, though, his enthusiasm for the techno scene started faltering; this "crisis" made him want to start looking for a new musical experience and led him to the kind of music he is currently
proposing: a sort of “New-Funky” with a variety of heterogeneous
contaminations, a genre that takes inspiration from the past but is at one time
new, expressing the synthesis and evolution of his past experiences and, most
of all, almost unknown to the “dancing” public. This new field has revived his
enthusiasm and rekindled his passion for music, and it is here that he is
currently concentrating his artistic energies.
After almost 20 years of experience as a musician/DJ, of which the last 6
focussed on the house/techno scene, in 2010 Loris realizes that his enthusiasm
for this genre is no longer as strong as it used to be; he is no longer
satisfied with the music that this environment offers. Therefore he begins to
look for a different sound and starts experimenting with new stuff, in search
of something innovative, with an implicitly clear dance soul but also having a
solid musical structure, played or sung “for real”. In short, he sort of
“returns to music”; to musical textures made not only of loops but of real
notes, melodies and rhythms genuinely played but interwoven with different
sounds, sometimes more electronic, sometimes more ethnic-flavoured. The guitar
player inside him pushes him to look for a new groove, 100% danceable, which
can be proposed in “DJ style” but is made of real music….yes, it’s MUSIC AGAIN!
Through this research he finally comes to the genre he is currently proposing,
a swinging, groovy blend of dance, funky and electronic music with a variety of
contaminations from the past, from ethnic to soul, from trail-pop to the 80s.
Have a try: listen….and enjoy!
