Dino Lenny (GB)
Dino Lenny starts very young as a radio deejay in a small town of the South of Italy, Cassino. He grows up within an interesting group of lads such as Savino Martinez and Claudio Coccoluto. In the late 90s he decides to seek fortune in the UK, his native country. In London his career gets a boost thanks to a long series of important remixes: Inxs, Underworld, Missy Elliot, Timbaland etc and the collaborations with The Housemartins, Scissors Sisters, Wu Tang Clan, Madonna, just to mention a few names and a collaboration with Steve Lawler on Viva Rec. His productions are just as interesting as the remixes and Dino Lenny earns for three times in a row the label of " Essential New Tune" on Radio One (BBC) by Pete Tong. Considered "A Wizard of the Electronic music" by the Chemical Brothers, Dino Lenny explores the full range of his potentialities and starts singing. In 2011 Dino performs live with Skin & Underworld at The Brixton Academy. After David Byrne's approval "I Wanna be Like Talking Heads/ A Dj Deep Inside" gets released on Strictly Rhythm. The story continues in the summer of 2014 with releases on Exploited, Suara, Off Recordings and upcoming releases in 2015 on Damian's Lazarus Rebellion. Dino's main project at the moment is with Maceo Plex's label Ellum that has already released the well received Eps "It's Saturday" & Living In a Song" with rmxs from Gardens of God Shall Ocin & Rebolledo. More to come this winter on Ellum. Meanwhile Dino has also had time to launch his exciting brand new label Fine Human Records..!
