Originally from Italy but now a proud Londoner, Pagano is arguably the most successful DJ and Producer to come out of the London gay scene during the noughties. Pagano's impressive selection of releases supported by the biggest DJs in the business and years of DJ gigs at the most important straight venues and gay events in the world have helped bridging the gap between the two scenes.
As a producer Pagano has completed a number of releases on many prestigious labels worldwide such as STEREO PRODUCTIONS (Spain), DEEPERFECT (Italy), KULT (USA), CR2 (UK), NERVOUS (USA), MN2S (UK), S2G (Germany), PACHA (Spain) and many others. The majority of these releases have stormed the Beatport House, Techno and Techouse TOP 100 singles sales charts.
Pagano's recent compilation 'Trade : The Dark Side' reached the number 1 spot on the BEATPORT Techno TOP 100 Releases sales chart (number 7 overall Beatport TOP 100 Releases sales chart). Pagano's previous compilation 'Digital Generation Vol 2' reached the number 1 spot in the Beatport House TOP 100 Releases sales chart.
Through the years Pagano's original productions and remixes have reached the Top Ten of the official dance charts in UK, USA, Germany, Italy including the Billboard, DMC and Buzz charts and have been played in the dance music programmes of radios as important as the British BBC Radio1. They have also been supported, during their DJ sets and Radio Shows, by a variety of DJs including big names such as: CARL COX, UMEK, CHUS & CEBALLOS, STEFANO NOFERINI, WALLY LOPEZ, PAUL VAN DYK, TIESTO, FERGIE, CEVIN FISHER, BOB SINCLAR, QUENTIN HARRIS, DANNY RAMPLING, DJ VIBE, DUBFIRE, SISTER BLISS, PROK & FITCH, HOXTON WHORES and many others.
After DJing at legendary clubs and events all over his native Italy during the nineties - including Exogroove, Pervert (P:Gold), Kinki (Bologna), Matrix (Brescia), Marabú (Taormina) to name a few, Pagano has established his DJ career thanks to his residencies at legendary gay London club Heaven (Saturdays) and Fabric (Sundays) during the early 2000s. But Pagano is probably now most renowned for his 9 hours DJ sets at the Rapido After-Hours in Amsterdam, where he has been spinning since 2006.
