“Touring around the world in the last couple of years right after COVID, definitely opened up my musical taste and influences, especially towards Latin world due to the strong bond I made with Spanish native speaker populations. Having been based in Ibiza for a few summers and visiting regularly Mexico made me learn/love the language and culture. I found myself enjoying and playing more and more tracks with Spanish vocals, without of course forgetting my Italian roots with always leads to my love for some good italo, disco, pianos, and funky tunes in general. A bit of acid can always be found here and there, to not forget how good an ACIEEEED background in electronic music is! Get ready for some summer vibes and tunes you’ll easily find in my next sets if you’ll ever attend one of my shows!” – Speaking Minds
