"Freddy K [...] raised with the ABCs of roman techno, and then some aesthetic signs learned on the records of Lory D and Leo Anibaldi, and then a couple of striking 12 " Control EP, '94 and '95 EP Soundz and than the album Rage of Age 95, tracks such as " Nessuno puo` (Nobody can), Noi non ci fermeremo mai (We won t ever stop us)", and the anthemic "Roma" told since the beginning the epic rave-community-horror of "Sound of Rome" with bombastic kicks and abrasive sounds from euro-clash and American post-Robert Armani techno."

Techno under every nuances and colours: dark, classic, solid, experimental, minimal, hardcore, acid...
His music culture builds an energetic and elegant mix of deep surprises and swindle textures with a constant originality and creative experience.
Freddy was an influent protagonist and point of reference for two generations of techno followers: a teacher on the deck with the true spirit of 90's and the new rave school touch.
