DJ Lhasa

Maurizio Braccagni was born on November 26th, 1968.

He started his experience as DJ about 20 years later, in 1987 and released his first record in 1989. For almost four years, during his dj-nights he plays tekno music, especially from northern Europe, and this style influenced his future artistic direction deeply.

In 1993, under the name of Two Cowboys, Maurizio reached the top of the European Sales Charts with the track titled "Everybody Gonfi Gon". Thanks to this hit, Maurizio Braccagni makes himself known as top deejay playing in many clubs in Europe and remixing many dance and pop acts like Whigfield and JK.

In 2001, Maurizio produced "Little Girl", a song that broke not only the Italian dance and sales charts, but also the international charts.

In June 2002 the DJ Lhasa project sees the light. The first single was titled "Heaven Is a Place On Earth", a cover of the smash hit of Belinda Carlisle that got very positive results especially in the Asian markets. "Pinocchio" was the follow-up and it has been licensed all over the Europe.

"Giulia" (originally performed by Gianni Togni) was DJ Lhasa's big break. It had reached #1 in Italy, Spain, Canada, Austria and in the next weeks it was released all over Europe. "Giulia" was a massive hit in the summer of 2003, after spending five consecutive months in the top ten of the Italian dance charts.

The fourth single "Together Forever" was a new version originally a #1 single for Rick Astley in 1988. In Italy, it picked up a huge radio support which led to it being one of the biggest dance hits of this winter. It would then become the top 5 in all of the dance charts and in the top 20 in the sale charts. In Austria, it is top ten and it will be released in the next week in all of Europe.

DJ Lhasa was also hugely in demand for gigs, especially in Austria, Spain, Denmark, France and Russia. Other remixes produced by him are "Pretty Green Eyes", "Feelin’ Fine", "Better Than Life" by Ultrabeat and "Lonely" by Deep Spirit.

"No Controles" was the new single for the summer 2004, kicking charts all over Europe and gave the push for DJ Lhasa to start working on his first release for 2005. The stunning "Mysterious Times" critically worldwide acclaimed.

Times were finally mature for debut album "Technologia", distributed in Italy, Russia, Japan and Taiwan, and soon in major European countries.

The following DJ Lhasa "Dancefloor EP" (4 tracks) featuring the original sample of "Dance Your Ass Off" by R.T.Z. has been a successful track in 90’s.

Now he spends most of his time working on compilations, remixes and tekno commercial music in his studio Mabra Studio besides also being a fitness and carate instructor.
