DUSTY KID [aka Paolo Alberto Lodde] was born in the first half of the decade of the 80's. As a new "enfant prodige" he immediately showed his natural attitude for the variegated "music world". At 10, after just one year of private lessons of the basic notions of... piano and violin, he was admitted directly to the 6° year of the piano course in the conservatory of his native city. Following the accademic experience, his tasks moved gradually from the austere classical world to the electronic system, free from binds and traditional old-fashioned diktats. DUSTY KID started to manipulate synthesizers, samplers and sequencers, and he realized that one passion was growing and growing: the ardor for arranging and producing his own compositions. He released his first single "I Found A Reason" at 19 on the English label Lowered Recordings, and then he produced various singles and remixes for Mutiny UK, Robbie Rivera and Trinity Hi-Fi. The first official single under the aegis of the pseudonym DUSTY KID was "The Summer of Love".
But it's during 2004 that Dusty Kid creates the project Duoteque with DJ Andrea Ferlin and releases numerous EPs on Boxer Recordings and the tracks were immediately included in the DJ sets of some of the most important names, like Richie Hawtin, Tiefschwarz, Ricardo Villalobos, Dominik Eulberg, Sven Väth and Magda.
After the Duoteque experience Paolo decides to take his own way and to release his own productions as DUSTY KID
