We are back!!!!!
After a year off from throwing our infamous boat parties on the Leeds/Liverpool canal, and joining forces with the brilliant NEST lads to throw some quite amazing nights at Stinkies peephouse with D.Js including Rebekah, Nico lahs, Julien sandre, Geddes and Inxec to name a few, we decided it was time to unleash the boat for 6 rather special monthly events starting with none other than VIVa musics, Lorenzo Bartoletti.
You know the score with the boat parties, 49 people and you, on a barge, sailing down the picturesque Leeds/Liverpool canal on a summers afternoon. Perfect........
LORENZO BARTOLETTI (VIVa music/ITA)
Fresh from a sucsessful tour of the U.S.A Finishing off playing 3 parties at the Miami winter music conference, were very proud to bring you, Lorenzo Bartoletti.
At a very early age, Lorenzo Bartoletti was heavily influenced by music. One of his biggest influences came from his very own brother who collected vinyls from an array of different genres. From pop to rock to jazz to blues, nothing was out of bounds for Lorenzo.
Realizing that music was his passion, he took up classical guitar and music lessons. For 6 years Lorenzo was a student of music. But it wasn’t until he stepped foot in a club that his musical dream began to unfold. He was completely fascinated with the figure of a dj and his way to interpret the music and move crowds. So in the summer of 1999 Lorenzo took various jobs and began to save for a pair of Technic 1200 and a mixer. He began honing his skills and was a regular at the record store. Lorenzo quickly picked up the skill and in no time was playing clubs all over the city. As the years went by, Lorenzo gained huge support and began to receive offers from all over Italy and Europe.
After many years of playing at some of the most prestigious venues such as Tenax (Firenze, IT), Frau Marleen (Torre del Lago, IT), Tartana (Follonica, IT), Gasoline (Milano,IT), Altromondo Studios (Rimini, IT), Urban Festival (Roma, IT), Changoo Club and Klubber's Day (Madrid, ES), Sonar (Barcelona, ES), Amphitheatre Club (Rhodes, GR), and Isu Club (Leicester, UK), Lorenzo decided it was time to make the next step in his career and began to experiment with productions. He went on to release his first record in 2008 for Attary Records. Soon thereafter he received the attention of labels such as Suara, Sk Supreme Records, Viva Music, Loco, and many more. His productions have received support from the biggest names in the industry and this comes as no surprise. He has become one of the leading tastemakers in the Italian scene and is respectfully named one of the artists to watch in 2010.
