About

ENG:

Federico Gentile was born in Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, a small town in Sicily on June 4th 1984.
The passion for electronic music explodes at 15. He begins to mix samples and breaks of several genres, from house to trip hop, from ambient to techno, from electro to chill out; among all sounds, emerges in him an interest to jungle and drum'n'bass.
After various experiences as bassist in a rock band of that place, which lasted about three years, he plunges back into the world of electronic music as a DJ and producer.
His passion now goes by the breakbeat jungle, passing by the big beat / funky breaks to electro. So was born Ryko the drummaker, suburban boy who with his violent rhythms, attempts to break the monotony of Sicilian music scene, dominated by commercial music charts, offering different sounds and rhythms.
In early 2007, he wins a contest sponsored by Qoob.tv. Ryko wins as best remixer in key funky breaks of the song "Eighteen" by Forward Russia.
In July 2007 his mix is posted on Breaks.it, the most important Italian site for breakbeat.
In January 2008, with his track "Claustrophonic", wins the first edition of Electrobreaks Assault Competition, local contest reserved to emerging breakbeat's producer.
Is in April 2008 its first appearance in radio with his dj-set MI-To Breaks, broadcast by the English Brap.fm.
During 2009, his sound is enriched: brand new productions fidget-house style, although his interest was already starting in 2008. The love for this new genre, keep to expand himself on the web and on various radio industry both Italian and foreign.
In 2009 arrived the first confirmations joining independent labels like Italian Killa Tunes Records and FU.NCH.

Federico Gentile nasce a Barcellona Pozzo di Gotto, piccola città siciliana, il 4 Giugno 1984.
La passione per la musica elettronica esplode a 15 anni. inizia a mixare samples e breaks di svariati generi: dalla house al trip hop, dall’ambient alla techno, dall’electro alla chill out; tra tutti,emerge in lui l’interesse per la jungle e drum'n'bass.
Dopo varie esperienze da bassista in un gruppo rock del luogo, durate circa 3 anni, si rituffa nel mondo dell’elettronica da Dj e producer.
La sua passione spazia adesso dalla jungle alla breakbeat, passando per la big beat/funky breaks e l’electro. Nasce così Ryko the drummaker, ragazzo di periferia che con i suoi ritmi violenti cerca di spezzare la monotonia della scena musicale siciliana, predominata dalla musica commerciale da classifica, proponendo sonorità e ritmiche diverse.
Agli inizi del 2007, arriva la vittoria di un contest sponsorizzato da Qoob.tv. Ryko se lo aggiudica come miglior remix in chiave funky breaks del pezzo "Eighteen" dei Forward Russia.
Nel Luglio del 2007 un suo mix viene inserito su Breaks.it, sito italiano tra i più importanti nell’ambito breakbeat.
Nel gennaio 2008, con il proprio pezzo “Claustrophonic”, si aggiudica la prima edizione dell’Italian Electrobreaks Assault Competition, contest nostrano di breakbeat riservato a producer emergenti.
E’ dell’Aprile 2008 la sua prima apparizione in radio: con un suo dj-set partecipa al programma Mi-To Breaks, trasmesso dall’emittente inglese Brap.fm.
Nel corso del 2009 il suo sound si arricchisce: vedono la luce diverse produzioni in stile fidget-house, a cui il Nostro si era già interessato a partire dal 2008. L'amore per questo nuovo genere, lo porta ad espandersi nel web e nelle varie radio del settore sia italiane che estere.
Nel 2009 arrivano le prime conferme facendo parte di label indipendenti italiane come Killa Tunes Records e FU.NCH.
