Q: Please introduce yourself

I'm Luca Garaboni, an Italian DJ and producer. I started spinning records with my friends at the age of 15, and by 17, I was already a resident DJ at a club in my hometown, Belluno, in the Veneto region of Italy. Music is a great passion for me, and sharing it with people is a mission. There's nothing that makes me feel as good as when I connect with the dance floor crowd. 

Q: One person you'd dream to have a coffee with?

In the real world, I'd hang out with Quentin Tarantino because he's simply brilliant. But in an ideal world, I'd choose the Mad Hatter (from Alice in Wonderland) because nobody is as delightfully eccentric as him. 

Q: If you could have any superpower, what would it be and why?

The superpower I wish for is time travel so I could experience club culture from its beginning. 

Q: If you would have been given the chance to do a film score, what movie would you choose and why?

I love movie soundtracks as much as the films themselves. If I had to pick one, it would be A Clockwork Orange, blending Beethoven's classical music with electronic elements. 

Q: Who has been the most influential in your music career? And why?

Choosing a favourite artist is tough because so many have inspired me emotionally for my DJ sets. I draw from James Brown and 70s disco, The Doors, Jamiroquai, and the Acid Jazz scene. I have a strong connection to the American house scene of the late '80s—it's all about the feeling. 

Q: Tell us about your journey, what got you to where you are today?

Everything started after visiting a club called Movida in Jesolo, near Venice, when I was 16. My perspective changed, the music was different, and I felt great. A new passion was born in me. 

Q: Everyone goes through ups and downs, what’s one habit you adopt to push through the downs?

In tough times, I find strength in creating new music and staying active with sports like running and cycling. 

Q: What is one pro work ethic that you would recommend to the readers/listeners?

Education forms the basis of any professional relationship. It's good to be humble, but never let others trample your dreams. Persist with your projects and accept uncomfortable advice. A positive attitude and hard work lead to great results. 

Q: How has your music style evolved over the years?

I’ve always been drawn to upbeat genres with infectious grooves. Living in Ibiza for many years exposed me to diverse DJs, naturally inspiring me to evolve. 

Q: If you were to venture into another music genre, which one would you choose and why?

I follow R&B and hip-hop for their rhythms, which remind me of my childhood. 

Q: Could you name 3 tracks that got you into electronic music and why?

Certain tracks evoke strong memories for me, like "Revelation - First Power (Revelation dub)" reminding me of Movida, "Lil Louis - Club Lonely" epitomizing dance floor elegance, and "808 State - Pacific" with its surreal, pure, magical atmosphere. 

Q: Can you recommend a hidden gem in your home country that would be perfect for a rave?

Valmorel Mountain in Belluno is enchanting—music could transport you anywhere. 

Q: Could you tell us about your upcoming releases and plans for the year?

Currently, I'm focused on promoting my latest single "Niño" featuring the talented Mexican singer Fabiola Osorio, released under ADESSO MUSIC. Regarding the gigs, I will be in Ibiza and travelling around Europe and definitely also in Italy, including Sicily and Sardinia 

Q: Can you share a fun fact about yourself that most of your listeners are probably unaware of?

I was in Amsterdam with my friend Marco Lys when we stumbled upon a backstage staircase leading to a hidden room stocked with food and drinks—an inspiring moment for our track "Fourth Dimension."

Bonus Q Powered by Pioneer DJ: How did Pioneer DJ influence your career and what is your favorite Pioneer DJ gear?

I alternated between vinyl records and the legendary CDJ 100s. I bought them initially for practicing at home—they were a novelty after years with Technics turntables. It seemed impossible to DJ with those boxes at first but look how far we've come. I couldn't imagine working without Pioneer players now. The Nexus 2 setup is what I've used the most. My personal record stands at 11 and a half hours with 4 CDJ 2000 Nexus units and the mixer 900 Nexus 2. Today, my tech rider consists of 3 or 4 CDJ 3000s and the Mixer V10.
