Stefano Testa [djstefanotesta.com]
Looking for someone who always followed a clear concept by working on and shaping his life, on the look for a perfect mood and whose dearest wish is, by putting all of his passion into his work, living and absorbing it 24/7, everyday for more than a decade by now, to impress the crowd. Born in the early 80′s in a small town of south Italy, Stefano was, up from his first experience with the movement, immediately fascinated from the club’s scene, lights and DJ booths. His adventure is begun in 1997 when he didn’t know anything of ‘the underground’, nothing more about djing and after he had listened accidentally for the first time a record played back in reverse mode. First son of 2, after 20years with his the family, he moves to Rome. The main city, full of thousand faces, constantly growing it´s scene of clubs and music. Up from then it was clear that his growing experience would be just a matter of time. Through meeting the right people at the the right time, after spending hours and hours listening to some of the best Djs of the world when they played in Rome, Stefano devotes all of his energy and attention to all aspects of a DJ´s work. At the age of 24 he signs his first and only residency in Rome -which he is still in charge of today- with Bizzarro. His sets were always a composition of sonority which widely extended from the techno sounds to the deepest groove of house music, turning him into a unmeasurable worker that has so much respect for a job and a world around. Constantly researching on music, by more than 15 years, makes him a fully shaped artist, characterized not by a kind of music, but by a mood, full of groove, thrill and obviously smooth vodka.
