Yoruba Grooves give special welcome to ALEX PICCINI, providing us with an EXCLUSIVE mix for the 17th podcast of the series.
Alex Piccini was born in a small town near Venice, a city strongly influenced by house and techno music thanks to well known clubs such as Go-bang, Movida and Muretto. Clubs that brought this music into Italy for the first time. As Alex grew up listening to this music, he became passionate for the scene; what led him to become a DJ. At the age of 16 he bought his first turntables and after only two years he was already known, becoming resident DJ in one of the most important parties in the region "Sushi".
