Fabio Florido's rise has been the outcome of a lifetime of learning; every dancer, every darkened club, every DJ, and every artist that he encounters leaves an indelible impression onhim. From the structured confines of the prestigious Giuseppe Verdi Conservatory of Music, to what he actually considers ''going to music school" amongst the sweaty ravers of Tuscany's underground scene; to training a watchful eye on electronic music legends from the front row of late night London club sets, to keeping to the shadows through several seasons of Space Ibiza's, where he witnessed his early tracks finding grassroots support from Richie Hawtin and his many guests, long before they met. Labels like Hustler Muzik, Selected Records, The Triangle and Beat Therapy were early to spot Fabio's signature appeal and harness it for solo and split releases. Fuelled by the vocal support of Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Luigi Madonna and Sasha Carassi, more EPs and remixes for European labels followed: Black Swan, Night Light Records, and Minus. Fabio further sharpened his vision of deep night music through his DJ sets. After moving to Ibiza in 2013, Fabio eventually forged connections with many of the influencers who originally inspired him. He took control of the dancefloor like never before, and in 2014 became a resident at Space Ibiza, alongside appearances at events around the globe. His particular style of techno also brought him in front of audiences at festivals Awakenings, Sonus, Tomorrowland, and clubs like Cocorico (Italy), Ambasada Gavioli (Slovenia), Cacao Beach (Bulgaria) and Barraca (Spain). In his own words, each of Fabio's interactions has culminated in him arriving at this exact point: balancing his compulsive passion for music creation with his passionate consumption of nightlife, in constant pursuit of forwardlookingsounds, tools and technology.
