Gigi D’Amico is a half Spanish and half Italian creative mind; a musician/producer/sound engineer and a fashion trend-setter , born in Catania, Sicily. His career started at just 14 years old working on various local radio stations, then moving onto DJing in clubs (Genesi Portorosa-Me) where he performed for many years as a musically innovative DJ.
It was at this time, influenced by the sound of his city, he started playing live; singing and playing guitar in various local bands. This brought him to open the 'Magna Sound Studio', an important rehearsal studio in Catania where David Grabs prepared for his famous performance at Catania’s Istituto d'Arte.
In 1995 he began his sound engineer career, studying at Centro Professione Musica (CPM) whist working as a sound engineer, touring in support of international artists including Tom Harrel, Tonino Horta, Rickie Lee Jones, Gloria Gaynor, Temptation, Cool & the gang, Blonde Redhead, Warmers, and Uzeda.
Over the years he has written and performed a plethora of music (Beatle Juice, Somersault). In 2003 D'Amico moved to London where he completed a BA (hons) in Commercial Music, specializing in production and the music business at Westminster University.
In 2007 he started a collaboration with Dented Records and recording studio (Foreign Beggars). In 2008, he worked for Kudos Records and the next year with Paul “trouble” Arnold at FAT! Records and Chew the Fat!
Immersed in these international collaborations, he created Dark London records; its brand creating the Breaktro music concept. The label combines his extensive DJing experience with a researched sound and composition, mixed with passion and professionalism.
Since returning to Italy in 2010, he has started two new amazing adventures; one on the fashion side, designing a collection of handmade shoes: Ogshoes.net, and on the other, going back to his first love: the radio. In collaboration with RadioFlashfm.net, he produced ||Space Is The Place||. The radio mix show soon made a great impact and has gained plaudits from the Electro worldwide movement. Over the years he has developed a live performance which pushes the boundary of technology into a musical blend of electro, tech and break, warped into an acid bassline. All his live shows are famous for the great energy generated by an electric bass, vocals and vocoder.
In the same year he moved to Barcelona, starting a fresh collaboration with the new Common People, a crew focused on new events music experiences.
Gigi is also producing music for media and short movies. Gigi is a singer, a DJ, a photographer and a cook, an artist trying to define and express his ego in every single ordinary action.
