DJ GINO is founder and executive producer of SONICA FESTIVAL. Now a veteran about psychedelic music gatherings, he begins his active participation since 1990, immediately keen on acid-techno frequencies of that age. In 1993 he buys his first desks technics-1200, after having been collecting a large vinyl archive and, getting in touch with local insiders, Gino starts to collaborate for the production of several parties in Italy (Naples, his native land) with famous artists from London and Detroit underground scene. After a pause, gone-by 1996 to 1999, when he’s been traveling throughout the South American as well as the Oriental cultures, Gino comes back to psychedelic scene attending most of the best events around the globe. His dancefloor-driving experience melted with his professional know-how in event management led him to project and create SONICA DANCE FESTIVAL in the year 2005.
Gino plays his natty dj-set in many international festivals and clubs.
His style is an harmonic fusion of psychedelic and cyber frequencies, and his musical research aims to constantly upgrade the worldwide dance music trends. He is usually able to present two different dj-set, for open-air or indoor stages, dynamically shifting clever selections of contemporary acid sounds with pumping and rocking beats.
