Naturally talented and noted music designer bringing original, sophisticated, even ‘dirty’ soundtracks from Deep, Underground and Old School to Tribal, Tech and Progressive House to Techno
Born in the countryside, in the province of Frosinone (Lazio, Italy) to be precise, international DJ and producer, Daniele D’Alessandro, aka DDJ, moved to the big city (Milan) at a relatively early age. Very soon, he took his first steps in the club scene, but then again, it runs in the family: his father was a dancer, DJ and organiser of evening events.
Growing up in the early 80’s, his musical influences span the gamut from hip-hop to R’n’B, from classical to electronic and house music. His unconditional passion for music first leads him to dancing. He attends hip-hop, and later house dance classes. Particularly talented, he hits the scene in some of the most prestigious dance clubs of Northern Italy (Pascia, Amnesia, DeSade, Hollywood to name just a few). In short, Daniele, an entertainer at heart, owns the stage and knows how to drive clubbers wild with his trademark dance moves and innate poise.
From dance to music, there is only one step. Introduced by his best friend to the famous Nika Music Store, he buys his first vinyl records and immediately feels the overwhelming need to learn all the tricks of the DJ trade. Passion and eagerness quickly develop into an untiring zeal without distractions. Very often he spends the night pounding away (to the delight of his neighbours, as you can easily imagine)… until Daniele was all set for his public debut.
After spinning for friends and at private parties, he is asked to warm up one of the most famous parties in town, Barbarella, where he soon becomes resident DJ. After only a few months, he is already in high demand. His presence as “guest DJ” is requested at parties all over Italy, Europe and around the world. He makes the headlines in Barcelona, Tel Aviv, NYC, Paris, Dublin, Munich, Brussels, sharing the stage, and working with big names of the international house music industry (PAGANO, ROBERTO INTRALLAZZI (THE CUBE GUYS), NACHO CHAPADO, IVAN GOMEZ, ENRICO ARGHENTINI, RICKY LE ROY, UGO LUCCHESE, LEO MAS, DANNY VERDE, PHIL ROMANO, LENZ GARCIA, STEVEN REDANT, ELIAS, GIANGI CAPPAI, CLAUDIO DI ROCCO and many more).
Building on his success as a prominent DJ, Daniele launches a new house Saturday night party concept in Milan in 2011. In a matter of weeks, a new innovative and catchy brand is born: The Hero Club (later named The Farm Milano). It comes as no surprise that some of his original soundtracks are signed by internationally renowned record labels such as GUAREBER RECORDINGS, SORRY SHOES and CHECK IN. As ambitious as ever, Daniele is always on the lookout for new concepts, projects and adventures. Get ready to hear his music and stay tuned!
