Mr. Mama (IT)
Mr.Mama embarked on his DJ career in 1993 when he acquired his first vinyl singles. Initially, presenting music to the public seemed rather peculiar, but fueled by a strong conviction, he persevered with the support of some friends and eventually found himself hosting a radio program called "Studio 100 FM" near a local station. This experience proved to be instrumental in his career, granting him the opportunity to share his music through the airwaves and gain exposure to a broader audience.
In 1994 and 1995, Mr.Mama collaborated with several prominent Dance Clubs, including El Coto Club, Onyx Club, Metropolis, El Mambo Club, and Trios Club. In 1998, he embarked on a three-year journey with System Club, followed by Sylver System, where he showcased his music alongside esteemed artists such as Tony Humphries, Terry Hunter, Seamus Haji, Dimitri from Paris, and many others.
He also served as a resident DJ at Quartiere Latino in Puglia, South Italy, and performed at Miami's WMC (Winter Music Conference). In 2003, Mr. Mama launched the Garagefamily project with his friend Mario Pagliari, captivating audiences across various clubs throughout Italy.
Expanding his talents as a producer, Mr. Mama's career took a new turn with the release of "Snake Shake EP" on EQUAL Records. The track garnered recognition from notable figures like Luis Radio, Tony Humphries, Quentin Harris, Tedd Patterson, and more. Additionally, he contributed to the "Italian All Stars EP" on Franck Roger's label, Earthrumental Records, where his production "The Shot" was featured alongside renowned Italian producers Pasta Boys and Hidden Diva.
His music found its way onto several esteemed record labels, including Luis Benedetti's Soulshine Records, Tony Records (Tony Humphries' label), Battlewax Records (Louie Balo), Baainar Records (South Africa's Lunga Nombewu), Cyberjamz Records, and many others.
Inspired by the likes of Osunlade, Louie Vega, Tony Humphries, Kerri Chandler, Dave Lee, Roy Ayers, Stephanie Mills, War, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Luther Vandross, and ATCQ, Mr.Mama continues to hone his craft and establish himself as an artist of exceptional talent and influence in the industry.
