39 years, Sardinian by birth and Milanese by adoption from almost twenty, I work in communication and DJs for love and hobby.

Kaze Inu is dj from the 2001. In the 2006 he begins his experimentation with electronic music productions that led to the release of three albums.
The first EP released in the 2015 Oblivium, produced by the KRKR Records label, a label he founded together with Giovanni Calella (aka Korinami) and Paolo Lucchi in the same year.
A year later, continuing however with the activity of dj, he produces a single, Antropico, accompanied by two remixes by Korinami and Comme du Funk, international artists of electronic music and deep tech.
In the 2017 comes the third album, Attitude, produced by Flip Side Recordings, (www.beatport.com/label/flipside-recordings/32701), the first real project conceived with the idea of albums, 5 tracks and 38 minutes and a half of a warm sound that lies between the ambient and the listening, contemplative and melodic minimal music with references to the psychedelia of the 70 years.
His passion for djing always remains vivid and solid, he has played in a variety of underground clubs in Milan, London and Berlin, but his best environment remains that of a private party, a theme party or ad hoc party with the client.
Peculiarity of Kaze Inu is in fact the musical flexibility, to range between various genres within the same DJ set is a natural process and necessary to feed the scene, to warm the guests and involve the public slowly from the beginning to the end of the evening.
The atmospheres of Kaze Inu take cues from different genres, from soft Nordic German electronics, rock-wave that recalls the 80 years, up to minimal French and melodic techno.
His set is divided into several moments, an aperitif and welcome pre-sound that looks for soft and early evening sounds, a subtle rhythm that slowly grows to reach a more sustained rhythm of the end of the evening, which is dedicated to those who are involved and wants to stay and listen and why not, even dance.
With the bpm almost always stable at 120, the rhythmic and melodic variations always distinguish his sound. He is currently working on the release of the fourth album with new sound suggestions, soft and somewhat psychedelic atmospheres that recall the krautrock of the 70 years and the electronics of our day.
Federica aka Dj Kollaps started playing on the premises of the alternative Milanese scene such as Rainbow, Dna, Atomic and Jail and is the creator and resident DJ of Going Underground - the evening born at the Yellow Submarine 10 years ago and now at home from 7 years to the Rock 'n'Roll of Milan - with DJ sets ranging from indie, new wave, britpop, dark and electro.
Luwei is a DJ born in China and moved to Milan. She has been working as a VJ for years for clubs and music festivals between Milan and China.
Influenced by European club culture and the Chinese underground music scene, he started DJing in 2018.
Black is his favorite color even in the console. At the Q21 Club it offers a pop, alternative & contemporary r'n'b sound. Instead of the clubbing dimension, he conceives a musical selection perfect for private happenings, cocktail parties or queer events, ranging from the patented electronics of Jessy Lanza to the Brit House of Disclosure, from the eclectic pop of Róisín Murphy to the remixes of Airplane.
Class 1980, Sebastiano was born in Vico Equense, a small town overlooking the sea a few kilometers from Naples. Growing up between the northern and southern suburbs of Milan, he approached music during the first half of the '90, fascinated by the Hip Hop culture that in those years, in Italy, was experiencing his "Golden Age".
Moved by this overwhelming attraction for music, starting with 1994, he starts buying his first Rap and House Music vinyls, which will soon become his main passion.
Thanks to the turntables of his neighbor, he starts recording the first Seby mixtapes on tapes, with which he begins to bombard almost all the record stores in the city, as they used to do in those years. Soon the very first DJ nights arrive in small clubs and parties organized by friends in the neighborhood.
During his university years he began to work on his first musical productions, although it would be necessary to wait for the 2008 and the return of the Disco sound to see his first official release signed with the Club Silencio moniker on Red Music, followed by a series of Ep, edit and remix for labels like Thisisnotanexit, Slow Motion, Tigersushi, I'm a cliché, just to name a few.
In 2009 he gives life to what he initially considers his Ghost Project, Robotalco, marked by a decidedly deeper sound and that will lead him in the following years to release several tracks and then on Home taping is killing Music, On The Prowl, Seven Music, ECSTASY and on many other labels yet.
Tireless Digger, his musical research is constantly evolving and over the years has led him to collect thousands of records of the most diverse genres, while remaining firmly anchored to the influences of Black music. In addition to his continuous studio activity and as a DJ in clubs, his latest projects see him involved in the management of Getwet Music, a label he co-founded with some friends and the co-run of the program of the same name, twice a month, on the new Milanese web radio Radio Raheem.
Take a club in Viale Umbria in Milan, two rooms, four DJs, a handful of kids and drag queens clubs that RuPaul's Drage Race raised, shake everything and serve it every Saturday night to the most colorful, LGBT, genderless, queer, gay and heterofriendly, underground, alternative and indie of the city. The perfect look? Cotton wig, glazed nails, sharp stilettos, laddered stockings and smudged make-up, but as far as we are concerned you can also come in a pigigma: to the Toilet you are free to be what you are (and what you want)! What do you dance? The Pop, Electro, Dance, Disco, Alternative, the New and the Dark Wave: in the room Shame we are super happy, in the room Castigo angry and with a little spleen. We dance all that life offers. The evening opens with the Lip Show, a drag show, and always closes in the arms of someone else.

Then he moved to Milan. From here he wrote the first songs in Italian.
With the help of Andrea and Deda, "Men who love women" are born, "Achille" and the next tracks to be released. He comes to the Mix Festival because for him too music is his riot, a way in which he can talk about sexuality, hypocrisy, love and hope ... with irony.
Egokid is back in town!
Their "any man" was the anthem forerunner of the third republic. IT-pop gave voice to the real problems of the country with increasingly current words of denunciation: `` We don't have the money to buy coca, make a good living``. With "The King dies" they celebrated in epic and heartfelt tones the extinction of the alpha male with and without a purse (end of a love between Buzzati and Bianca Balti), while it is `` As a hero of Marvel`` the Brokeback Mountain of indie italian. "We don't dance anymore" had sworn, in the footsteps of Mina and David Bowie, and instead they return to dance and make the mood of the new twenty years dance with a title that is a whole program: `` Disco Disagio``. Electronics, case in 4, refrains that are sung after listening, love in the time of Salvini and ideologies in the era of aloe. Cynical, irreverent, in love and glamor, here is Egokid again: unique, inimitable art-pop of the scazzi.
Born in Milan as a quartet, Egokid have become over time due to the economic crisis, as their 2014 album tells us, an autobiographical concept entitled `` Too many people on this planet``. Samuele Bersani has recorded his own version of his `` Nuvola N.1`` of the song-manifesto of that record, `Il Re die` The band, composed of avid readers of forumsalute.it, sees in the post-neurotic single `` Anaffettivo`` and in the album `` Minima Storia Curativa``, produced by Matteo Cantaluppi, its own beginnings in Italian. Among the passages contained in the disc, `` Arbasino`` still stands out, explicitly mentioned in the official biography of Voghera and `` L'orso``, a tribute to men of a certain weight, with a vocal cameo by Francesco Bianconi, in the shoes of welcome and innocent guest. From the album `` Ecce Homo``, recorded at Officine Meccaniche with the production of Sergio Maggioni and Giulio Calvino, the singles `ʻany man`` were taken, a veritable anthem of the politically incorrect and evergreen of the playlists of itpop, "Like a hero of Marvel", a universal love song and movie soundtrack without "the end". The album also included `` Horses don't kill themselves so``, in a duet with Faust'O. Their influences have always been heterogeneous: Battiato, Flaming Lips, white Battisti, the 70 prog, the Blur, the Detroit house, Rosanna Fratello, James Blake and Laetitia Sadier.
The Egokids are: Diego Palazzo (also in the Baustelle, vocals, guitars, keyboards), Piergiorgio Pardo (vocals, keyboards), Giacomo Carlone (drums, percussion and electronics), Davide the dEbE Debenedetti (keyboards, synths and guitars), Cristian Clemente (guitars, keyboards, ukulele as soon as possible) and Giuseppe Fiori (also in the Rezophonic, bass). And everyone wants to pop.
Appeared initially during the golden age of the legendary "Suol to Soul" in Milan. In the early 2000 years the DJ sets were characterized by old school hip hop and RnB sound that were the sound base of the Milanese and northern Italian clubbing.
