All eyes on Maurizio Gubellini
Amongst the top 5 DJ’s in Italy and the top 50 in the world (according to the acclaimed American “thedjlist” in 2009), Gube as his friends like to call him has been making thousands and thousands of club goers dance for the last 25 years, people from all over the Italian peninsula where he regularly guests at over 350 of the best venues including: Pascià (Riccione), Echoes/Liz (Riccione), Prince (Riccione), Villa Delle Rose (Riccione), Altromondo (Rimini), Pineta and Villa Papeete (Milano Marittima), Matis and Kinki (Bologna), Zangola and Del Alpes (Madonna di Campiglio), Sottovento (Porto Cervo), Mantra (Porto Rotondo), Luna (San Teodoro SS), Estasi’s (S. Teresa di Gallura SS), Sali E Tabacchi (Reggio Emilia), Circus (Brescia), Fura (Desenzano BS), Old Fashion and Fidelio (Milano), Rock City and Life (Torino), Area and Ciarlis (Cortina), Art Cafè, Etò and Piper (Rome), La Mela (Naples), Yab and Costes (Florence), La Fabbrica (Pescara), Seven Apple (Forte dei Marmi), Taitu and Marabù (Taormina – Catania), Bier Garten (Palermo), the list goes on and on…
During his career Maurizio has had the honour of playing alongside international artists such as Benny Benassi, Satoshi Tomiie, David Morales, Masters At Work (Louie Vega & Kenny Gonzalez), Frankie Knuckles, Tony Humphries, Ian Carey and many more.
For years (from 2004 up until 2008) Gube was the producer and artistic director for the labels Spectra & Takuma but since January 2009 he has interrupted his contract with them (his last production in fact with Spectra was Maurizio Gubellini Feat. Melanie ‘Deep Emotions’) enabling him to produce on a more independent basis for varied labels together with a team including Luca ‘Peruz’ Peruzzi and Matteo ‘Elektroshock’ Sala.
His track ‘Moscow Trip’, the Summer anthem of 2005, was played by just about everybody and had great success in the very demanding Ibiza and Mykonos clubs (it was even included on the Space Mykonos compilation). The remix that Gube did of the classic Technotronic track ‘Get Up’ in March 2007 (Global Deejays Vs. Technotronic on Superstar Records) was in first position of the Beatport top ten for well over a month. Recently Maurizio has also remixed tracks for other big names on the scene including Benny Benassi ‘Come Fly Away’ (Ultra Records) and Robbie Rivera ‘Be Near’ (Juicy Records).
Other productions of his that during the last few years have created a big buzz with the young club goers have been ‘Metrosexual’, ‘Space’, ‘Equinoxe’, ‘Thanx For The Add’, ‘Tumble’, ‘Overdrive’ and ‘The Game’.
During his career in production he has worked with numerous leading labels including WeLoveMuzik, Molto, BootyLicious, Stereo Seven, Net’s Work, Deeperfect, Smilax, Bliss, Superstar, Juicy, Ultra,Tiger, High Contrast,etc… It is in fact for this last Dutch label (thanks also to the collaboration with Dyor) that we see Dyor & Maurizio Gubellini ‘Loving You’ (a cover version of the historical Minnie Ripperton track), a tune that created a massive stir at the latest 2009 WMC in Miami getting some wonderful feedback from all over the world.
His last summer 2009 release “INSANE” on WeLoveMuzik rec. has been for over a month in top5 Electro-House on Beatport and has been enclosed in Sensation White (Ministry of Sound – Germany ) and charted by David Guetta, Roger Sanchez, Benny Benassi, Laurent Wolf, Spencer & Hill and many more big artists.
Interest in his work as both producer and DJ has manifested also outside of the Italian confines and lately he has been very busy playing sets on a worldwide scale, more precisely: Slava & Neo Club (Moscow Russia), Delight Club (S. Petersbourg Russia), Podium (Krasnoyarsk Siberia), XL Club (Omsk Siberia), Club Universal (Klaniningrad Russia), Club Aura (Samara – Siberia) , Space (Mykonos Greece), Xueno (Formentera Spain), Colossos & Moef Gaga (Lloret de Mar Spain), Bangaluu (Berlin Germany), Karu, Y and Spazio Nero (Miami USA), Vanilla and Pascia (Lugano Switzerland), Club OH (Zurich Switzerland), Explore Club (Djerba Tunisia) , Byblos (Luxembourg), HC Club (Salen Sweden) and others…
He is currently working with M2O, Italy’s leading national House music radio Station.
