Gaudi

London-based, Italian-born producer

Gaudi
Previously nominated for the World Music Awards with his album ‘Dub Qawwali’, Gaudi’s eclectic style and versatility has kept him at the forefront of his field throughout a notable and prolific career, making the London-based, Italian-born producer and solo artist a force to be reckoned with in the international music scene. There is a natural sensitivity to Gaudi’s music which enables him to unify different forms of sound from around the world and represent them in his own personal style, while at the same time keeping the heart, integrity and significance of the cultural roots. His music – an organic fusion of dub, electronica and worldbeat – is rarely off the playlists and regularly being performed live in the UK and internationally. Gaudi has been stretching the boundaries of music since the start of his career in 1980 and since then he has cultivated his obsession with music by constantly searching and experimenting with new forms of sound and grooves. A classically trained pianist and Theremin player with a fascination for anything that could produce sound distortion, Gaudi began his career as composer and producer experimenting with analogue synthesizers, filtered vocals and tape echoes; even back then he created a sound that was very much his own: a sort of crossover between roots-dub and the early eighties no-wave movement. In 1986 Gaudi began his first solo reggae project as a singer, with his first two solo albums, ‘Basta poco’ and ‘Gaudium Magnum’. He later moved to London, and soonafter reached no.1 in the UK charts in 1996 with his remix of Cool Jack’s ‘Jus’ Come’, confirming his credentials as a top remixer. Since then he has remixed some of the most important names in the business, including: Bob Marley, Simple Minds, Fatboy Slim, The Orb, Ojos de Brujo and Afrika Bambaataa. With 12 solo albums, 250 music productions, 80 remixes, three Golden Discs and more than 100 compilations featuring his tracks, Gaudi has been regularly present in the UK and USA iTunes charts, including with his last three albums: ‘Bass, Sweat & Tears’, ‘gaudi:testa-CONTINVVM’, and ‘Re:sonate’. Besides his studio work, Gaudi is constantly touring, with live performances and DJ sets captivating an ever growing fanbase around the world with his original formula of ‘dub n’ breakz’ – fusing the roots of reggae music with cutting-edge new electronic beats. Gaudi’s latest album, ‘NO PRISONERS’, was released in March of this year, and since then he has been rocking venues and dancefloors on both sides of the Atlantic.
