1. Hi Federico! Do you have a personal recipe for success, which factor has made the main contribution to your achievements to date? Tell us about it.
Hi Olga! Glad to do this interview with you!
Unfortunately there is no a specific key for the success ! In my case the most important thing has made the main contribution for dates is for sure my produciton in terms of tracks and releases on good label ! I think the best way to reach people is through your own style of productions so people can remeber and appreciate your personal imprint !
2. Do Dj`s need to understand the trends of music? Can you only include the music that you like or the trends are more important?
I think sometimes you have to keep up with music evolution! I mean, you have to keep your own style always but adjust it as well with the costant evolution of music.
It’s the same thing talking about technology, you have to take advantage of it!

This question It’s difficult for me ahah.. I don’t know actually .. For sure something that has a connection with the music.

One of the best moment for sure is when you are on touring, you are visiting new places and you have in front of you a lot of people dancing for your beats! In my case, my last tour in South America was just amazing!
5. What did you believe in early in your career, or even as a child? What gave you strength and inspiration?
The first dj who gave me inspiration was Paolo Martini. I went to listen to him here in my city Verona! Even before, when I was a child I felt something special with music, it was the best way to be free and express myself .
6. What was the best, most valuable advice you were given? What was it?
I got some great advices from people in the business that have so much more experience than me and it helps a lot! If you want to grow as an artist you have to pick up every positive things and inspiration that can give you each advice you get during your journey !
