        Gigi D'Agostino's sign includes the Chinese character "wu" meaning
"to dance". Born in Turin, Gigi D'Agostino spent an eventful childhood
between his native city and Brescia (where the Media Records studios are
placed). As a child, Gigi D'Agostino always had a big hope: to be someone in
the world of disco music. Working first as a mason and fitter, he started his
musical career as a D.J. by organizing parties in clubs. His debut was in a
club near Turin called "Woodstock". He was a resident D.J. of Ultimo Impero
(an Italian disco) from 1993 to 1998.

        D'Agostino's first release was "Noise Makers Theme", a double-A sided
record with a track by Daniele Gas on the other side, which launched the Noise
Maker label, under the direction of Italian house producer Gianfranco
Bortolotti. D'Agostino would continue working with Daniele Gas, as well as
Mauro Picotto's production team for the following years.

        His 1999 single "Bla Bla Bla" became a major European hit. He
described this single as "a piece I wrote thinking of all the people who talk
and talk without saying anything!". Other hit singles included L'Amour
Toujours, "Another Way", "La Passion", "The Riddle", as well as "Super (1, 2,
3)", "'Carillon" (remix of Italian D.J. Magic Box) and, more recently

        As a D.J., D'Agostino is known as one of the "pioneers of
Mediterranean Progressive Dance" consisting of minimalistic sounds and catchy,
Latin melodies and especially Mediterranean melodies. As a producer, Gigi
D'Agostino's strength - or "Gigi Dag", the pseudonym he uses for himself in
club productions - lies in transforming a piece, originally destined only for
the discos, into a success for the main-stream public.

        After successes like "Sweetly", he joined the team of Gianfranco
Bortolotti, the general manager of Media Records and suddenly reached the top
of the hit parades. His single "FLY", published in 1996 with BXR Noise Maker,
the label created by Media Records for the Mediterranean Progressive house,
reached the top of the sales in Italy. This was followed by his single
"Gigi's Violin".

        Subsequently Gigi D'Agostino released the song "Angel's Symphony"
with R.A.F. by Mauro Picotto, a friend from Media Records. His biggest project
was the self-titled album Gigi D'Agostino, consisting of 19 tracks, which sold
over 60,000 copies.

        L'Amour Toujours album (1999).After his rise to success, Gigi
D'Agostino musical style changed, with his sound becoming more melodic, at
midway between House and Progressive, with more energetic and melodious
sonorities and less obsessive rhythms, also known as italodance.

        In 1997 he released the single "Gin Lemon", followed by 1998 "Elisir
(Your Love)" (1998), "Cuba Libre" (1999) and "Bla Bla Bla" (1999). He later
released the album Eurodance Compilation which contained 5 unpublished tracks.
With this compilation he earned a Platinum Disc and was awarded with "Best
Producer in 1999" at the Italian Dance Awards. In October, Gigi D'Agostino
released another hit single, entitled "Another Way".

        In 1999 his album, L'Amour Toujours (released in 2001 in the United
States), including 23 tracks on two CDs including the song "L'Amour Toujours",
brought him to the 10th position in the sales parade in Italy and as a result
he earned another Platinum Disc.

        In 2000, his remake of the Nik Kershaw song "The Riddle" sold
1,000,000 copies in Germany, and 200,000 copies in France. He also released
the albums Tecno Fes (August 2000) and Tecno Fes E.P. Vol. 2 (December 2000).

        In 2001 he released L'Amour Toujours E.P., consisting of 3 songs: two
new versions of "L'amour Toujours" and "Un giorno credi", a single made in
collaboration with Edoardo Bennato. "Un giorno credi" reached the top of the
parades in Italy and became one of the most played songs in the national and
international music networks. He was also awarded with "Best D.J.-producer of
the year" at the "Red Bull Awards" in Italy.

        In 2001 he also released the hit "Super", as a result of a
collaboration with Albertino (an Italian music artist), which won him the
awards "Best Dance Producer" at the PIM (Italian Music Award); and "Public
Award" at the Danish D.J.s Award in Copenhagen, Denmark. In December of that
year he released Il Grande Viaggio, a compilation of his favourite songs,
including old electronic pieces and new rhythms and melodies. As a result, he
was awarded with "Best Dance Producer" at the Italian Dance Awards.

        In 2003 he released the single "Ripassa", a hit which is very
important for his next productions. This songs is slowlier and has got some
techno influence.

        On July 15, 2004, his compilation "Euro Dance" won Platinum
certification with 120,000 copies sold in a few weeks.

        L'Amour Toujours II.Gigi D'Agostino has played in some well known
clubs throughout Europe including in Italy, Spain, France, the Netherlands,
Czech Republic at the Karl๒vy Lazne, Germany, Switzerland and England (in
1996 he played at the Ministry of Sound in London with Mauro Picotto) .

        In 2006 he created his own new record label, called "Noisemaker Hard",
to differentiate the style of music released under his older record label,

        In 2007 Gigi invented a new genre of music: the "Lento Violento".
This new genre is characterized by slow bpm and a very strong techno
influence. As a result, a Lento Violento song is very slow and violent. He
released Lento violento e altre storie, a compilation which contains two cds
and his new 35 Lento Violento songs. The most important hit is "Ginnastica
Mentale". After some months, he released the compilation "La musica che pesta"
under the name "Lento Violento Man" which contains two cds for a total of 38
not mixed songs that are suitable to dance or for D.J.s, but not for home
