LUIGI MADONNA



Author Christian Dori | Date 07/07/2018

Where are you from?

From Naples but I’ve been based in Amsterdam for a few years now.

 

When and how did your music career start? Who were your mentors?

I started DJing when I was 11 years old, I was playing around my hometown Caserta in bars together with my good friend Joseph Capriati. Then when I was 14 years old I had my proper first gig. One of my mentors was Rino Cerrone, he was the one that believed in my music since the first day. 

 

Please tell us about your residency at Pyramid, in Amnesia Ibiza this summer.

It's my pleasure to play regularly at Amnesia, I love that club and all the people behind... Pyramid is a great party, the productions and lineups are amazing and I strongly suggest to pop in for some madness if you are in Ibiza.

 

What’s the first thing that you remember of the first time you played on the island?

My first time in Ibiza was many years ago, since then I had the opportunity to play in many venues such as DC10, Amnesia, Sankeys, Privilege and lots of afterparties! There is no better place in the planet such as Ibiza during the summer to party. 

 

Where else will we see you during this season?

Too many to mention, I have a very busy schedule with lots of festivals and club shows. However, I really look forward to playing at Sonus, Drumcode festival, B My Lake, etc. 

 

You have started your career as a DJ but have soon made your way as a producer, working with major record labels over the years. After four full EPs with Drumcode and a long standing relationship, how would you describe your collaboration with the label?

For sure Drumcode has been an important part of my career and still is nowadays. I have a great relationship with Adam and other members of the label. We are work colleagues but at the same time good friends, and we still see each other very often especially during the festivals season. I'm sure I will release more music in the future with the label.

   

Do you have any new release coming out shortly?

Yes, just finished an EP that will be released on Second State before 2018, watch this space.

 

Do you most enjoy playing in big festivals or in smaller clubs? What are the main differences in your opinion?

I love both to be honest, of course in festivals I can play harder and it is an amazing feeling seeing millions of people going nuts in front of you. But at the same time I like playing in small clubs because you can reach a more intimate connection with the crowd.  

 

What is your favourite part of the job?

Playing and making people dance.

 

Tell us the most challenging moment in your career to date?

For sure the past 2 years have been extremely intense, lots of things have changed, and I'm starting to see the benefits of my hard work and also of my amazing team that support me every single day.

 

Define your music style in three words.

Groovy, warm, energetic. 

 

Future plans?

I'm working on my first album and I hope it’s finished by 2019.

 

Relationship with Ibiza.

Ibiza is a magic place, I was in love with Ibiza since my first holiday when I was 18 years old and since then I’ve been going to Ibiza every single year for business or for pleasure. For sure there are the best clubs in Europe, but at the same time I believe that the island is not only about the clubs, I'm in love with the beaches, the food, the people and if you go around, it is one of the most beautiful places on earth in my opinion.

 

What’s your best way to relax and get recharged when you are not working?

I try my best to take a day off each week when possible of course, and that means no phone or emails, nothing at all. I'm totally disconnected with the whole world for 24h and this definitely helps me to come back even more stronger the following day. 

 

And the last usual question… are you Night or Day?

Absolutely night... Easy!

Last night I called my dear friend Christian that lives in Ibiza. We have been friends for long time and we share an interest and passion for music and we like to talk about environmental issues. We keep these topics always active and at the center of our conversations.

Dear reader friends,if everything went as planned, in your hand you could have a copy of ND MAG #002, made of a special stone paper. Stone paper is an eco-sustainable product. Not everyone knows that to achieve 1 ton of paper you need 4 tons of wood. And what happens to the other 3 tons of wood? In the transformation process electricity is consumed, CO2 is produced, there are dry residues and we contaminate a lot of water.Eight years ago for the N&D Winter Edition (March 2011) special issue, we had already used a mineral paper very similar to the one you (probably) have in your hands ...

Hi Lucas, first question, where is your name “Who” coming from?It’s a quite long story… The first time I came to Ibiza, I didn’t have an artistic name because I was playing as a DUO with my friend Victor. Together, we met Elliot (James Shaw) who at the time worked for Circoloco. We started to play and people were asking all the time to Eliott “Who is playing?”.Then my partner decided to go back to Paris so I started playing on my own under the name Who. Why did you come to Ibiza?My manager Sophien, introduced me to Leo Cannistra and Fanny Br...

1 - RAY MONOEsperanza E.P - Moxy MuzikThis track is selling fast on vinyl but also hitting the Minimal Deep Tech chart number 1 spot after only 72 hours of being released, and when you hear it you will know why. A good example of how to sample properly and not have that cheesy gimmick factor which seems to be everywhere at the moment, a great deep groovy track which can also be dropped at peak time and smash the dance floor! 2 - Christian Burkhardt & Daniel Roth - Def - DoNotSleepA brilliant baseline on this track is accompanied with some great drum programming, if you want to keep ro...

RIMINI IS CALLING... DISCO PIÙ RECORD STORE: 40 YEARS INTO DJING

Author Onirika

The second millennium has brought us definitively into the digital and internet era. The music industry is undoubtedly one of the most affected industries. The new technologies have changed significantly in particular the figure of the DJ, whose role is almost symbiotically linked to that of the producer. Similarly, the digitalization, with the advent of mp3 first and the streaming era after, has made record stores a real rarity, like oases in a desert.But those who, like me, have been lucky enough to experience this evolution, for better or for worse, are aware that the true professional figu...

Ibiza is one of the undisputed queens of the kingdom of the night. If music is the star of the Ibiza nights, the dream is the cornerstone of all our nights. One of the royal partners associated with the night is undoubtedly the dream.It's a partner that can easily find its way there, as dreams happen while sleeping. Freud wrote that dreams are the royal road to the unconscious. Dreaming is an involuntary imaginative activity and it is the vision that dominates all the other senses.In 1899 Freud published his book The Interpretation of Dreams. From that moment on, dreams are no longer the e...
