Simone got his start as resident for Detroit Milano, one of the most important underground parties in Milan and has become a regular of some of the biggest dance institutions in Italy: Cocoricò, Tenax and Magazzini Generali.
His productions are distinguished for their powerful, percussive and playful sound, with vocal touches and deep energetic bass lines. In 2017 he found success in the Beatport charts with Music On’s Leon, their record “Can’t You See” reached #2 of the tech house chart and #3 on the global Beatport Chart, becoming the most played track during BPM 2017. This caught the attention of Nic Fanciulli and Saved Records who signed Simone’s next EP “Halo” which also cracked the global Beatport top 10.
His sets are groovy, percussive and Latin-influenced with lots of his own productions thrown in, this has captivated many audiences around the globe with a huge demand for him in South America being the catalyst for his first tour at 19 years old.
