The likeable Sicilian, born and raised in Frankfurt am Main, is listening to techno since 1993. From there on, he was fascinated by all kinds of electronic music. In the legendary Paramount Park, he was a weekly guest from 1999 to 2001. However, a key moment at Rhein Main alarm was in December 2001. A DJ in the Mirage was playing tracks of Sven Väth, Tomaz vs. Filterheadz and Speedy J. After the closure of the Paramount Park in 2002, he started visiting the U60311. He addicted to the harder version of techno and was able to be a part of the beginning of modern club culture.
In 2003 he had the ability to play at the decks himself, so he started to gain experience. He started his music career under the DJ name "Leary". After small gigs in the Rhine-Main area and nationwide - e.g. U-bar, Tanzhaus West (former Space Place), Saarland Radio (Unser Ding) or Hot In Saarbrücken - he founded his own booking agency "Evolution Beatz" to have a release- and booking-base in early 2005.
In 2005 he began his radio show “De:Leary:um” on Shouted.FM (the largest internet radio station in Germany). After a very short time and thanks Shouted.FM the show got an enormous feedback, which was probably due to his friendly, relaxed and charismatic presentation skills. Sven Wittekind, Brian Sanhaji, Frank Sonic, Jan Liefhebber and DJ Amok were some of the guests in his monthly show, which was produced by him until the end of 2007.
Also in 2007 a career highlight happened by joining the agency "Abstract". Well-known headliners like Sven Wittekind, Arkus P, Robert Natus and Kaoz were part of the agency. Gigs in many popular Clubs like U60311, Dom im Berg Graz/Austria, Elektroküche Köln or Butan Wuppertal were some of the highlights.
In 2008 Giuseppe changed his DJ name from "Leary" to Giuseppe Castani. Due to the advancing technology regarding digital DJing, he moved over to the Native Instruments products. The growing world of digital media in conjunction with more freedom, better sound and production quality in the implementation of the sets opened up new possibilities in terms of compilation, organization and optimization of the performance. Meanwhile, Giuseppe plays completely digital and over the years he always remained up-to-date at the level of current technology.
In 2009 Abstract was merged with I-motion, so the successful cooperation was terminated.
Big festivals like Nature One, Ruhr in Love, Toxicator, Airbeat One or Electric City are also some of yearly bookings for Giuseppe.
He stands for straight, impulsive and groovy techno sound, which follows his own idea of a clear line. Sound by Paul Ritch, A Brothers, Alan Fitzpatrick, Adam Beyer, Chris Liebing, The Advent, Yousef, Dubfire, Gary Beck, Christian Varela and Joseph Capriati reflects his musical taste.
