Featured Artist – Enrico Sangiuliano
Enrico Sangiuliano is one of the hottest DJ/Producers of the new Techno wave that’s currently dominating the charts, big clubs and festivals. Last Monday night he won the award for best producer at the DJ Awards 2019 in Ibiza & is currently riding high at no.7 in the Beatport Top 100. He is a Performer and sound designer born in Reggio Emilia, Italy. We’ll be catching his set in a few short weeks at the Gashouder for his first time closing set on October 17th during the Drumcode takeover at ADE Awakenings! A full lowdown will be posted during ADE & at the end of October.
Since Enrico was a child, his desire was to create noises and sounds from everyday objects, but it was in his teenage years he turned his attention to technology and started to learn how to make music on his computer at home in the ’90s.
During this time, he started to frequent many of the illegal raves in Northern Italy, but when a friend listened to one of Enrico’s sets, he swiftly introduced him to one of the main party organisers where after 10 minutes of listening to him play, they simply said “You’re In!”.
From that moment, Enrico spent 10 years playing all over Italy, from small intimate venues to big outdoor raves. Many of his tracks during this period, became party anthems for all fans those who regularly attended every event, and to this day, they are still all unreleased.
Since 2009, his productions have been signed to a wide variety of world-leading labels including Truesoul, Herzblut, Gem Records and Rhythm Converted. But his international recognition came in August 2015 with his remix of DJ Boris’s “Can You Hear Me” on Alleanza. The track held onto the #1 position on Beatport for 14 weeks, along with featuring in the Beatport overall chart for 5 weeks. The track holds the title of the highest selling track on Beatport of 2015 and was nominated at the IDMA Awards in the “Best Techno / Tech-House Track of 2015” category.
After this success, big things were expected from the Italian producer, and he didn’t disappoint. His EP “X-Pollination” released in March 2016 on Unrilis smashed into the charts to sit at #1 for over 2 months and held onto the #1 position overall of Beatport.
Leaving his name firmly on the techno radar, and with his previous productions on Truesoul over the years, a release on Drumcode seemed a natural progression for Enrico and this came in the form of “Turbulence”, “Start Of Madness” and his record-breaking EP “Moon Rocks” released in August 2016 where all 4 tracks featured in Beatport’s Techno Top10, with the lead track taking #1 for over 6 weeks. After a 6-month studio break, he delivered the follow up to Moon Rocks with one of Drumcode’s largest releases, “Astral Projection”. A heady euphoric style of techno coupled with a deep and dark B-Side named, “Blooming Era” both tracks blasted their way to the No.1 Techno spot, with both tracks climbing to No.5 on Beatport’s overall chart.
International support has come from industry heavyweights including Carl Cox, Adam Beyer, Sven Vath, Joseph Capriati, , Sasha, Pan-Pot, Stephan Bodzin and Sam Paganini. This continued success and support, lead Enrico to earn the No.8 spot of the best-selling techno artists back in 2015 and the No.1 spot in 2016, 2017 and 2018.
His remix collaborations have been with a selection of the best in the industry including Moby’s classic “Why Does My Heart Feel So Bad”. His most recent in August 2017, was his debut collaboration track “Preset Heaven” with Adam Beyer, a summer-inspired techno anthem on Drumcode’s A-Sides.
Last year his debut album ‘Biomorph’ was released on Drumcode, a landmark release for Enrico Sangiuliano and the label. Based on the 4 stages of evolution, the album was divided into 4 parts and showcased Enrico’s extensive range of production skills, with big room progressive tracks accompanied by downtempo breakbeat. The album hit the number 1 spot overall and stayed there for 6 weeks. Singularly, numerous tracks excelled, but ‘Hidden T’ took the limelight hitting the number 1 spot in techno, whilst Symbiosis became the soundtrack to many festivals worldwide.
His touring schedule has taken him worldwide with tours in Europe, South America, Asia and Australia including Awakenings Festival, OFF Sonar, Tomorrowland, Junction 2, Privilege Ibiza and many more. Below are 3 of our favourite Enrico Sangiuliano productions.
