Mihai Ionescu was born in Buzau, on May 29, 1977. Later, Mihai Ionescu becomes Mihai Amatti replacing his family name with another one with historical and musical significance, after Andreea Amati the Italian who invented the violin with four strings. Living in a family passionate about music, Mihai received the music with open arms through his father, rock music being the genre where he found himself in the adolescence, a genre that has remained dear to the present.
The two memorable parties of his career so far are located one in Studio Martin, Bucharest, and the other in No Name Timisoara. The warm-up for Reboot and Robert Dietz in Studio Martin was “by the book”, and the party in Timisoara gathered a lot of people which partied all night long. The recipe of his success has three ingredients: time spent, work and production, which is a must have. In the future, he doesn’t see himself elsewhere than in the production studio and gigs, more fulfilled and more confident.
With his new released EPs, Mihai Amatti becomes a name known outside the country, following gigs at The Egg in London and Morphine in Milan. Musical influences come from ‘70s rock music, with bands like Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Pink Floyd, and on the other hand, he appreciate artists like Ricardo Villalobos, Richie Hawtin, Moodyman from abroad, and Rhadoo, Pedro, Raresh from Romania. His style is very hard to define, but we can place him in the deep area, with a lot of groove sound. He would like to collaborate with Moodyman, Pedro and La Chriz on the production, and on the DJing side with Rhadoo, Raresh, Pedro and Villalobos.
Mihai Amatti is dedicated to music totally, unconditionally, knowing that music will not ever disappoint him and that any investment in it is well done. Besides electronic music Mihai reveals himself in the music of all times and in all genres, obtaining different views, which he uses in his artistic act.
He is different from the other artists by musical selection and the manner of mixing the songs, things that drew from his experiences while so far. Known DJ’s appreciations awaked Mihai Amatti to reality, by making him to enjoy the success that he not noticed it until then.
He surprises his listeners with old musical genres alternating with new fragments, from ecstasy state of mind to deep one’s, bringing in his mixes the old school spirit and some sophistication.
In a special way Mihai is inspired by the mountains, and the person who influenced the most is his father whom he greatly appreciates.
“..eXpect the uneXpected” is the quote after Mihai lives his life, being always ready for what will follow.
