The total revolution came in 2003 after a trip to Germany, where he discovered new sounds and atmospheres, and approached the world of production to a more serious level. Advised by his uncle (Sly) he started using Fruity Loops and Acid as a sequencer for production, then move to Cubase.
After learning production tricks and understood the Cubase’s features, Se.Ra.Phic is signed up by Emotive Sounds after sending his first demo “I Live in Your Eyes”, track that goes straight into Audiojelly’s top 10. Two months later, was released his first remix for Saint Rush’s “Sovereign”.
