Giovanni Locapo Aka Gio Locapo was born in the south of Italy, in the inland of Apulia at the border with Lucania in the 1977. His first approach with music happens when he was about 16, while attending senior high school specializing in science education. He begins with playing bass guitar and with some friends he starts an hard rock band. We are in the early 90's, this is a very important time for hard rock and electronic music, this is the time of Guns' n' Roses, of grunge, metal but also of Depeche Mode and the moment when the Dj and producer anglo-canadian Richie Hawtin starts his career, a leading and important figure for the transformation of Gio from musician into dj and producer. Soon after graduating from High School he moved to the roman capital city to carry on as bass player for another local hard rock band. This experience will however ends in 2005 when he will move to Milan to study Sound Design at the European Institute of Design (Ied) where in 2008 he will graduate as Sound Designer. It's in these years in Milan that he will start his experience as Minimal Techno and Techno dj and producer with a more European approach than traditional, the Detroit one. So he starts playing local Clubs such as Sottomarino Giallo, Lime Light and Magazzini Generali where he will play aside with famous Dj Claudio Coccoluto. In 2009 it will be a natural step for Gio to move in one of the most important world music capital: London ,Uk. In 2009 he starts a new project with a fello dj named Tony: Noi5e Pollution. They will play few clubs in the London underground scene such as: 1001, Russian Bar, Crucifix Lane, Basing House, Nomad and Trafic just to mention some of them.
