~Mauro Picotto

If you don't already know about this Italian DJ/Producer, Mauro Picotto, well now's the time to get acquainted with this diversified, techno madman. He's known for his ruthless, devouring sets that will make anyone that has never attempted to dance, DANCE! The wallflowers wont be wallflowers after hearing one of his explosive, hard, banging shows. Mauro puts the under in underground. There is no particular style that Mauro has; it ranges from trance to techno with climaxes that come back with intrepid cadences that hit you before you know it. Even Mixmag commented on Mauro's sound, "Melodic trance? Pah, Mauro spits on your melodic trance."

Landing a hot spot at #8 in DJ Mag didn't come by chance. Mauro was seen playing at some of the most renowned venues such as Twilo, Privilege, Gatecrasher, Space (Miami), Cream, Ministry of Sound, Godskitchen, Space (Ibiza) and Pacha. He has been and is still rocking festivals such as Godskitchen Global Gathering, Nature One, Dance Valley, Homelands, Berlin Love Parade, Sensation, Innercity, and Gatecrasher. The list goes on and on. Picotto also played Creamfields UK and is the only DJ heading Creamfields Ireland 2002 with live acts, Underworld and Faithless. Always on the mainstage, Picotto is no second rate DJ, he's been nominated and won "Best International DJ" five times in the year 2001-2002. He won the titles at the Danish Dance Awards (two years in a row), Ericsson Swiss Dance Awards, BBM Irish Dance Awards, and the Deejay Magazine Spanish Dance Awards. He also took over the show at the German Dance Awards and won Best Producer, Best Radio Hit and once again Best International DJ. He beat out well-respected DJs Carl Cox and Paul Van Dyk in the TMF awards in Holland. The TMF award is equivalent to MTV here in America and is one of the eminent music awards in Europe.

With his forte and ability to demolish the dance floor, Mauro Picotto brought more attention to him by his originative production. Holding positions at BXR with A&R and producer status has also helped with his status of producer/DJ. In 2002, he released "The Others" compilation alongside single "Pulsar 2002", with a remix from none other than DJ TiŽsto. This compilation was Mauro's UK debut album, it contained club hits and revered songs that even Judge Jules and Carl Cox had to play.

When listening to "The Others", the songs musically spoke for themselves and the amazing aptitude of Mauro Picotto's production work. With other tracks such as "Iguana", "Komodo" and "Lizard" , they have made an impact on the UK Top 40 charts and with a newer track called, "Back to Cali" it has abducted new followers with its trancier sound. Mauro has just finished a new compilation called, "Live in Ibiza" which is out on his own label called, Media Records. This CD is full of experimental yet hard dark, techno tracks. This CD is unstoppable and explains what Mauro's style is all about. His production is something that he just feels, its nothing planned, but he never stops breaking into new territory.

Mauro is definitely a busy man. He had his hands full when he ran his own Pulsar night in the UK and toured globally. But now he's juggling a Godskitchen residency at Eden in Ibiza plus playing numerous summer festivals. Despite all the hectic touring, he's coming to America! Mauro is taking some time out of his busy schedule before the year comes to an end, to take care of his US audience in October. It will be a mini tour that will hit the cities he missed in the Spring but this tour will make you love him more and await his return for next year. The dates on the West Coast will be sponsored by none other then Godskitchen. Mauro will be doing an Afterhourpower party after his LA event. On the east cost, don't miss when Mauro makes his grand appearance back to New York, the first city that welcomed him to the United States. After two years of waiting for his return, this will be a night that won't be forgotten in clubbing history since Twilo. Having much respect in the scene, even Pete Tong had to give props to Mauro and considers him the "'Michael Jackson' of Dance Music." Take this opportunity to be a part of this phenomenon that America is about to experience.

Mauro Picotto: World Tour 2002
by Groovanauts Reporter: 09-16-2002

"I don't feel scared of changing my music, nor my style. When it's time to change, I do it. Instead of wasting time thinking about what other people think, I concentrate on the creative side of music. I play what I like, not just a kind of music." ~Mauro Picotto
