Born in 1973, she graduates in foreign languages in 1991 and starts her artistic career in theatre, cinema and dubbing. Her work on stage will last until 2000, then she begins working as a speaker for various radio stations: her nice approach, her 360-culture and her perfect speaking (due to the fact that she’s a teacher of Italian pronunciation) make her become one of the most loved by listeners. In 2004 she meets her husband Max Riolo; with him she’ll discover turntablism & djing. Her house releases marked with elegance are signed with the alias of LaDj, a four-hands project (with her husband) of which she is the official image in a sort of tribute to femininity in console. Gifted with a charming unique voice that allows her to create high quality dj sets with multilingual vocal entertainment while she is mixing, LaDj has real strong skills that make her performances reach an outstanding level. Her theatrical background is a ‘must see’ and her approach to console immediately gives a clear impression of great personality and taste. She thinks that a woman dj has enough room in her flight case, not only for music, but also for her makeup bag. LaDj’s favourite definition of her music is: “lipgloss-touch House”. In 2005 Silvia & Max Riolo created their independent label, AudioBit. Her debut single is High Heels, inspired by stylish girls dancing in clubs; her follow-up is Mini Skirt that makes a perfect match with first one. Then follows a remix of Dj-vu (Simona Gee vs Max Riolo). Coming soon on Bang Rec Pink Trilly “Non Fuma” (see below for details). She is currently working at new remixes that will be soon released. LaDj is also promoter of a female djs movement worldwide that involves both djing and producing music, based on the emphasis of female touch in music.
