DJ/production duo Discodromo named themselves after the Italian word for the circular runway of UFOs as used in 1970s sci-fi films. Independent of one another, Giacomo Garavelloni and Giovanni Turco spent time in nightclubs though the 90s where they gained a deep understanding of house and techno. It was only a matter of time before they crossed paths, at which point they immediately realized they were in love, with music! Their combined passion and knowledge of myriad musical mutations was the perfect basis of their new DJ partnership. By 2008, the duo relocated to Berlin, and their stylistically diverse sets have led to bookings in a wide array of clubs: the infamous Panorama Bar in Berlin, Rex in Paris, Cielo in New York, ageHa in Tokyo and Sónar festival in Barcelona, to name a few. Giacomo and Giovanni’s newfound surroundings also inspired them to start producing their own music together, which led to their debut 12” single “Cosmorama” on Internasjonal, the label owned by Prins Thomas (who also provided a remix of the track, later included on Optimo’s lauded Fabric52 mix CD). Since then they released 2 other records with Internasjonal and more productions and remixes on a variety of other labels like BPitch Control, Dissident and of course their own CockTail d’Amore Music. In 2009 Discodromo have teamed up with Berghain resident DJ Boris to create CockTail d’Amore, a monthly party that’s become a fixture in Berlin’s gay scene and in 2011 the boys have expanded the venture into a record label as well. Most recently, CockTail d’Amore happens regularly also at Lux in Lisbon.
