Behind the decks since 1995 and with a whole life dedicated to the world of music, Lele Sacchi is now internationally recognised as one of the icons of Italy's electronic, house and alternative music scene.
Over these twenty years, he has completed a round-the-world trip DJing at some of the best clubs, events and festivals there are. His style combines house music with his roots and influences, regularly incorporating Italo disco, soul, post-punk and dub into the mix. In the studio, he recorded initially as Boogie Drama and more recently under his own name (releasing tracks for labels such as Moodmusic, Soul Clap, Systematic, 20-20 Vision and Get Physical). For many years, Lele was the driving force behind Milan's most lauded clubbing temples such as Magazzini Generali in the 00’s decade or the resurgence of legendary club Tunnel from 2010.
Lele’s span within electronic music goes on: every weekend he runs Radio2 Inthemix on state broadcaster Rai, is one of the founders and directors of the Elita company (mainly known for its annual festival during Design Week) and teaches the History of Dance Music at the prestigious Istituto Europero di Design (IED). Sacchi is also regularly invited to DJ and do soundesign for style brands and exhibitions (routinely for Trussardi and consulting for the likes of Adidas, Timberland, G-Star, Toyota, Mercedes etc.) and sits as a judge at the world’s first ever DJ talent show, TOP DJ, on Sky TV. All these things and more are the reason Italy’s biggest newspaper La Repubblica’s supplement ‘TuttoMilano’ put Lele among the 25 people that forged Milan in the past 25 years.
Lele will begin 2016 with records on both Rebirth and Internasjonal, and also continue to take his experimental brand of house music DJing worldwide. Read more
