The Kinki club “is the club” that build the history of Bologna’s house club scene,
so play there as a dj could mean “all right then, here we go” and Enrico Gasperini,
formerly known as gAs, won this challenge.
Always attracted by the nightlife, he started spinning vinyls at the age of eighteen, during his studies in Computer Sciences; the electronic music addiction led him into a partnership with an underground record store specialized in Detroit Techno, called MainStreet Records: the time spent on analyzing and listening the sound that has been something like “the start” for the modern house music made him grow quickly as an artist, and, day by day, he’s become a real institution, with many residencies in the most important venues in town.
During his dj sets, gAs loves crossing between house and techno in a unique way, continuously layering different grooves and topping them with many acapellas and tools.
Thanks to his knowledge in the process of analog synthesis and the great skills in manipulating music softwares, gAs has also gained many good feedbacks since his first productions: especially focused on the bass frequencies, his tracks presents warm basslines, dark voice drops, looped synth’s melodies and complex verbose rhythm patterns.
Actually he’s an active member of Memento Records, an indie electronic label founded by Idriss D and Fabrizio Maurizi; he’s also started a more “housy” side project, “gAs vs Linuz”, with his friend Lino Pugliese: their tracks has been soon released on Danilo Vigorito’s Orion Muzik.
