Deriving from the early age, inspired by his parents's records such as Kraftwerk, Joy Division and New Order, he soon developed a great passion for electronic and new wave music.
At the age of 15, after hearing the sounds of many techno Neapolitan clubs, he fell in love with this music genre and decided to buy his first decks.
It was as if he was born to do this, he soon realised his deepest strength and great ability in mixing and scratching records. Thereafter one year, he started to play in many different Neapolitan clubs.
