Angelo Giacomo Luigi Armando D’onorio started listening to hip-hop, soul, funk and jazz when he was still a little boy. Later on, his musical horizon broadened, and in 1990 he started spinning funky techno-house. Only four months after starting his dj career at the world famous Amsterdam-based iT, everybody knew his name and skills. He was invited to rock the dance floors of all the famous clubs in town, including Mazzo, Paradiso and the legendary RoXY. Two years later his name was listed among the top dj’s of the nation, and he was playing all over the country.
Since that time, Angelo has been rewarded with three Best Dutch Dj awards, and has become one of the most popular DJ/Producers in the country. Angelo travelled around the world doing gigs in Brazil, Spain, Argentina, Chile, South Korea, China, USA, Bulgaria, Russia, Israel, Prague, Macedonia, France, England, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa, Croatia, Norway and many more.
Over the years, Angelo has played with many of the top names in techno-house such as Derrick May, Kenny Larkin, Billy Nasty, Westbam, Mr. C., Laurent Garnier, Tom Middleton, Pepe Bradock and more. He has even instigated a live jam session with the legendary hip-hop outfit Pharcyde, where tech-house spinning and hip-hop vocals were merged into one sound. As a resident DJ at the bi-monthly Welcome to the Future nights at Paradiso since 1993, he has also shared the stage with Underworld, Ken Ishii, Slam dj’s, Funk d’void, Pure Science, System 7. In the festival environment, he has played to up to 20,000 people supporting the Prodigy (Pinkpop), Chemical Brothers, Underworld and Orbital (Lowlands).
