Gigi d'Agostino biography

Luigi Celestino Di Agostino aka Gigi D'Agostino was born 17 December 1967 in Torino. He did a lots of jobs, and endured lots of suffering to reach today's fame and fortune. He says he would do it all over again if he was really forced. Anyway his life is really changed, all his desires are realised now. Gigi loves progressive music, even if he twisted it rather than customize it. Mediterranean progressive was born in this way: minimal sounds, catchy melodies, lots of latin and... mediterranean sounds. Gigi has attacked Italy with hits such as Giallone rmx, Fly, Elektro Message, Angel Symphony (with R.A.F. by Picotto), Gigi's Violin and New Year's Dayand, through last compilations, he affirmed himself with "Musica" and Psicadelica.

He says that same inspirations come from his Salerno's origins and that if he should choose between being a producer or a deejay he would be at a real cross road. "Cause one thing drives another", he explains caressing the concept of complemetariety. Surely as a producer - before as an artist and so far away from underground paths - satisfactions for him are vast. Gigi, now, is dreaming of producing a record for the "beautiful" Maria Grazia Cucinotta and reveals that in his next projects there's a new album (his previous one gained a golden record), in production at the moment, likely to be pressed in a month time. "A masterpieces condensed", his collaborators say, lots of whom working for Media Records. The album, anyway, will be preceded by an unpublished single, that is not acetate and that everyone is searching for months - the one that in the ambient everyone calls Fly but that in reality is Psicadelica-, in exclusive for the Insomnia compilation.

The single is Music: Echo Deep Inside, programmed a lot by radios. Now, like every star, with a new self named E.P. he reaches straight for the foreign markets. Gin Lemon was extracted from the E.P., available track with four versions : More Gin Lemon, Gin Lemon, Gin Lemon Dub and Gin Lemon R.A.F Zone Mix.

It's with the single Bla Bla Bla that Gigi began to gain international popularity. One could wonder which lnguage had been used in this song. Actually the voice samples used there are just cut and paste from the phrase : "Aware I am am of what you've been", with vocoder distortion effects. According to some people it could have been taken from a verse of Mike Donovan's song Water Spring.

This was not the first time Gigi borrowed samples for other songs : for example, in the previous single Cuba Libre, the sample "If you really like to rock the funky beat" was also used by Jungle Brothers in the track Drum' n' Bass. In the track Coca & Avana you can also hear samples the song Whoomp (There it is) by Tag Team.

After Tanzen EP. Vol. 1 and the double album L'Amour Toujours (22 tracks ), Gigi landing with a new special EP called Tecno Fes and many great remix for Negrocan (Cada Ve) and Vanilla Ice (Ice Ice Baby 2001).

Gigi D'Agostino's released a new single in Autumn 2001 : L'amour Toujours, from the album of the same name.

2002 : Gigi's next single is Amorelecttronico / One Fly.

2003 : Gigi d'Agostino released his new single, called Silence.

2004 : Silence reached positions #19 on the Danish dancechart, #23 in Holland, #37 in Belgium, #22 in Austria, and #18 in the German DJ Playlist. In August, Gigi D'agostino and Datura released a CD-single entitled Summer Of Energy.

2006 : he created his own new record label Noisemaker Hard, to differentiate the style of music released under his older record label, Noisemaker.

2007 : in April, Gigi released a Greatest Hits album containing 5 solo tracks and 5 tracks with Daniele Gas. He also released 2 compilations entitled Lento Violento and La Musica Che Pesta.

2011 : Gigi d'Agostino could release a new 2 CD album at the end of June.
