We’re talking of Peter Kharma ( Pierangelo Scognamiglio ) a.k.a. Dj Kharma – Dj Phunk -Slicerboys, Pacific Wave, Peter K -…his alias list is very wide, in perfect “international producer” style. From 1991 , when he started at the same time his activity as DJ and producer till now , Peter’s releases became part of the playlists and of the charts of many world wide important radio stations and DJ’s such as Paul Van Dyk, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren ,Sander Van Doorn, Chuckie, Erick Morillo, David Guetta, John Digweed ,Pete Tong and many others and his “tracks” were licensed by the most important record labels and compilations around the world. Particular attention should be paid for the single “Dj Kharma & Niki-x Slip and Slide” ( 1995 ) which became a real cult record in the north of Great Britain (a very rare copy of the first release on Back up records has been sold on e-bay for even 820 pounds!) . In 2005 he realized a remix followed by a tour in U.K. which achieved a huge success.
Peter Kharma (this is his official stage name) is a producer who likes many different types of music and this is one of the reasons why he is very appreciated by many DJ’s and producers all over the world, as well as for the fact that his productions are in most cases entirely created by him, from the arrangement to the sound’s search, from the mixing to the final mastering.
In his performances as Dj Peter he looks particularly after the technical aspect (that he believes fundamental to achieve a great success on the dance floor) and he is gifted of a lot of imagination and of a good musical taste. He doesn’t like very much the DJ’s label who promotes only a kind of music, so he ranges between different styles, always following a common denominator to obtain a very deep impact on the audience. Moreover in some cases he transforms the DJ set in a real live-set being besides a DJ a musician as well.
