Best known as Nihil Young, Mattia secretly creates his side project Less Hate in late 2012, debuting together with Valentina Black, on George Morel’s Groove On Records and Get Physical Music Group’s Kindisch, as well as the classic New York’s King Street Sounds label, delivering just a good handful of tunes which immediately got support from the likes of Sasha, M.A.N.D.Y., Hot Since 82, NTFO, Kolombo, Animal Trainer and many others. His tune Soul Doubt on Kindisch (Get Physical) – also selected by Hot Since 82 on his BBC Radio One Essential Mix – is seen by many as one of the best tracks of 2013. Meanwhile he releases on King Street Sounds, remixing the classing jOHNNYDANGEROUs’ Beat That Bitch tune and delivering a few original soulful, nu disco and deep house tunes such as Heal Me, with Valentina Black, I Feel Your Heat – inc. James Silk Remix – and All Night Long, before getting back to Kindisch with his follow-up Yesterday, including 3 different, melodic tracks which really grabbed the attention of many, including Sasha. He goes on delivering top notch remixes to legendary artists like Robbie Rivera, Etienne De Crecy (on Ultra Music) and Moonbootica. In 2015 Less Hate releases his debut album “Memento” on King Street Sounds, the album features collaborations and remixes by Dantiez and Damarii Saunderson, Valentina Black, Da Lukas, Inner Rebels, James Silk, Samuel Dan and many others. Meanwhile his side-project 7th Star (with Valentina Black) develops a music concept of its own, releasing on labels like Toolroom, Tulipa Recordings, Gem Records and delivering hot remixes like Kevin Saunderson and Inner City - Bad Girl (on KMS Records).
