When and why did you begin to produce music?
I've been producing music since I was about 14 years old.
I remember that when I was a younger child (about 9 years old) I fall in love with an amazing music band of those years... I'm sure You remember "I'M A BARBIE GIRL... IN A BARBIE WORLD... I'M IN PLASTIC... IT'S FANTASTIC". Yes, I fall in love with AQUA xD. I still didn't know, but Aqua music was in a typical Eurodance style. So, maybe, it was destiny to fall in love with Italodance later!
However, after some years I fell in love with a song by 2 italian TV presenters, Paolo Bonolis & Luca Laurenti, titled: "Bucatini Disco Dance". It was a funny mix/mashup of many old disco songs, italian and international, all in a parodic vision. For example there were refrains of "Daddy Cool", "Stayin' Alive" and others... I liked that song so much and I also found and bought the dedicated compilation, the "BUCATINI DISCO DANCE COMPILATION". In this compilation the first track was the Bucatini Disco Dance song, obviously... and all the following tracks were some of the biggest dance hits of that period...For example "Let's Talk About A Men" by Prezioso and Marvin... "Lucky" by Eiffel 65... "Discotek People" by Molella... etc...I was so impressed by that music...
So my Italodance passion was officially born. I started listening to italodance music by radio, thanks to a famous italian radio "Discoradio" that was specialized only in dance music.
But, over time I felt the need to create by myself that kind of music... There is a particular moment I remember... It was summertime and I was at the beach... By the sea, an aquagym (water aerobic) session was in progress...By the speakers I was listening to "La Vie C'Est Fantastique" by S.M.S feat. Rehb... and when the main synth melody started, I remember I thought: "what a strange sound... it is not a piano, a guitar... or other normal instrument... I wanna discover what kind of sound is It and create It!".
Life became easier when I discovered the possibility to make music with a PC and a software... I started with Magix Music Maker... and then I moved to Fruity Loops
(now better known as FL Studio). So I discovered electronic instruments, and that all those strange sounds were played by Virtual synthesizers (Synth).
Over time, thanks to a strong and constant passion, I learnt by myself how to produce a song and I'm always happy for this.

Who is/are you favorite artist(s)?
This is not an easy question ehehehe, since I listen to very much music... I can say that I have no favourite artists... but some artists I listen more than others...However, maybe, I can name someone for each genre I listen to:
absolutely Gabry Ponte, Gigi D'agostino and Roberto Molinaro in the old Italodance scene;
Martin Garrix, Stadiumx, W&W, Dimitri Vegas, Nicky Romero, Matisse & Sadko (and more...) in the EDM scene;
Lana Del Rey, Ellie Goulding, Coldplay, Keane, etc... in the international music;
Wasted Penguinz, Mandy, Headhunterz, Wildstylez etc... in the Hardstyle Music;
Francesca Michielin, Elisa, Mara Sattei, Tha Supreme, Sfera Ebbasta, Gionnyscandal, Blanco, Tananai, Priestess etc... in the italian scene (pop and rap/trap music).

What do you think is the future for Italo Dance music?
I actually don't know... This music has been my first love... I thought it was the most complete style I've ever listened to... It has dreamy melodies with powerfull kickbasses... When it began to disappear from mainstream scene I was very sad... but over the time I discovered many others styles I loved...
So I understood something important... Music is Music... there is no style better than other... if You love Music, you can love many different songs in very different styles... And, most important thing... You respect who has different music tastes from You!
By the way, I think Italodance Music will never be the same of the early years... even if there are few people who are still producing it... but not in a mainstream sense.
Music, especially Dance Music, is continuing to change, It evolves continuously. So, Italodance Music will probably exist in different ways. Recently I listened by radio to a new EDM song... It shocked me... It had very very similar sounds of the old Dance Music... I'm talking about "Miracle" by Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding... Have a listen, if You don't know yet! So, never say never... old music could always come back!

What do you like to do on your spare time?
In my spare time I mainly listen to Music (it was obvious ahah) and I produce (especially remixes/bootlegs). I also go to the gym, I like training and It is healthy... and I also like to go out with some good friends Smile

What are your plans for the future? style, project etc.
My dream is to become professional in producing my favourite styles. I always try to make perfect songs, with high quality, especially about sounds and in mix/master skills.To do this, in the last few years, I'm always producing using reference songs. So I can compare my work with professional songs and try to reach the same quality.
Practice, practice, practice... it is my main plan now... and improve my productions. I'm focusing especially on 2 genres: Progressive House and Hardstyle, that are the styles I've been listening to so much currently, and for many years.
So, I'm sorry for all the Italodance Lovers, but I decided to stop producing It, at least for a while... This is important for me, in order to focus on what I really love now, and to spend much time on new stuff.

What news can you reveal for us about your future productions?
I have no defined project now. I will continue to make remix/bootlegs in the styles I love more (mainly Progressive House and Hardstyle as I said before), and I hope to have nice ideas and good inspiration in future for new unreleased songs (like my latest "My Swing" or "Shy" feat. Marianne).
In any case, I always hope to give nice feelings to everyone who listen to my music.
