I love music, all the music, without distinctions. There is a common thread in my jobs, just the passion for finding what I feel “mine”. To be too much attached to a sound, I find it “constraining”, there is no possibility to expand, to grow, and growth comes from experimentation, often through the mistakes that an artist can do in the studio or live. In my opinion, music is an ethereal means, by which people try to get in touch with their soul. Discs are small parts of it; during the mix, they find their proper place and give life to something that is bigger than us, something we cannot explain in words, but that leaves a sense of happiness and satisfaction equal to be in peace with yourself, that’s love.
4. Where do you like to draw inspiration from?
Inspiration is internally. It rises as a need to express something, it’s a idea, a feeling, an emotion … it all comes from inside of us. I think I’m more influenced by my frame of mind, by what is happening around me and of course all comes from WHO’s around me. Every time I am in the studio, I feel as if I were not there in front of the computer, I feel more as if I were manipulated by something else, from what I like to call “musical consciousness”. You know, I named my musical consciousness, I call it Giba. Sometimes we quarrel, sometimes I fall in love with it. Inspiration is the highest perception: there is no source and there is no end, it is constant and it is the expression of our soul, we must learn to recognize it and to understand how to transpose, transcribe it.
5. Tell us a little bit about how you DJ.
Well, being young, I definitely still have a lot of things to learn. It doesn’t scare me, in fact, it excites me! I like to have a physical approach, I find it more creative and “real”. I left digital solutions as “Traktor” and “Serato” because they distracted me from what I really needed to do, diggin’ inside of me to find the right record, the right piece of soul that fitted with the previous and with the following ones. I like to be creative, create movement, to make music and me an “all together”. Even if I often hear that there’s a distinction between life in the studio and on stage, I have to say that they are very similar. There is a need for experimentation, research, passion in both. I’m confident in what I play, I’m not afraid to get the people listen to something “unconventional”, it’s all part of a story, my story… CDs, Vinyl and Flash Drive are my picks, no effects no loops… a disc comes in and comes out constantly, leaving the place to others, and so on. Same as in life, there is an evolution, a continuous growth.
