Thin, weedy, with his own afro hair that is a kind of tribute to the black roots of a sound shared by funk and house, which make him look like a mushroom cloud! That’s the way in which we love to describe him while is playng sacral and deep grooves. Giacomo Pellegrino is part of that particular category of people that really knows very well the meaning of the word passion. He received his “Calling” to djing when he was only fourteen. Son of a musician, at that time he used to follow him to every concert, visiting the most important clubs and venues of Sicily. Thanks to that, he developed a true passion for music and clubbing and, later, for djing. Despite still being too young to perform at night as a dj, Giacomo started to arrange a few shows for friends, playing sets focused on dance music from the ’70 and the ’80, his first musical love. A few years later, his style became a “monolith” of dance and funk, house and tech, mature and personal so much that some clubs owners showed a big interest in his music, until he became the resident dj at the Suite club of Capo Vaticano.
When he left Sicily and moved to Parma, he started playing in top clubs like Down Under, Italghisa Dadaumpa, Kitchen and Dehor, between Lombardia and Emilia Romagna. Beyond his passion for clubbing, Giacomo Pellegrino can be considered a true “Radio Addict”. In Fact, he’s currently running a program for SS Radio of London in which he plays a one hour long mix set every Saturday afternoon, broadcasting the best deep, soulful and tech house music!
Giacomo Pellegrino isn’t only a very talented dj. His own artistic sensibility led him to compose a new track entitled Punch to face, out soon for the Supernova’s label Lapsus Music. A separate chapter should be dedicated to his recent input into the limited resident djs group of Moxa. “When I entered the club for the very first time Tedd Patterson was playing and I felt like I was in New York, London, Berlin” –says Giacomo- “it has been an undescribable emotion. Finally I found a place where freely express myself ”.
