Born in Turin, Gigi D'Agostino spent an eventful childhood between his native city and Brescia (where the Media Records studios are placed). As a child, Gigi D'Agostino always had a big hope: to be someone in the world of disco music. Working first as a mason and fitter, he started his musical career as a DJ by organizing parties in clubs. His debut was in a club near Torino (Italy) called "Woodstock".
He was a resident DJ of Ultimo Impero (an Italian disco) from 1993 to 1998. D'Agostino's first release was "Noise Maker Theme", a double-A sided record with a track by Daniele Gas on the other side, which launched the Noise Maker label, under the direction of Italian house producer Gianfranco Bortolotti. D'Agostino would continue working with Daniele Gas, as well as Mauro Picotto's production team for the following years. His 1999 single "Bla Bla Bla" became a major European hit.
He described this single as "a piece I wrote thinking of all the people who talk and talk without saying anything!" Other hit singles included L'Amour Toujours, "Another Way", "La Passion", "The Riddle", as well as "Super (1, 2, 3)", "'Carillon" (remix of Italian DJ Magic Box) and, more recently "Goodnight". As a DJ, D'Agostino is known as one of the "pioneers of Mediterranean Progressive Dance" consisting of minimalistic sounds and catchy, latin melodies and especially mediterranean melodies. As a producer, Gigi D'Agostino's strength - or "Gigi Dag", the pseudonym he uses for himself in club productions - lies in transforming a piece, originally destined only for the discos, into a success for the main-stream public. After successes like "Sweetly", he entered in the team of Gianfranco Bortolotti, the general manager of Media Records and suddenly reached the top of the hit parades. ...show less
