We are extremely proud to announce an act who has been high on our dream list for some time, ‘the professor’, Donato Dozzy.
Introduced to disco, italo, reggae and dub at a young age, Donato would later discover his love for techno and acid in the late 80s alongside his close friend and previous Inner Varnika guest, Lerosa. Refining his tastes over the following years by means of studying only what interested him rather than taking heed to zeitgeists, Donato would over the space of 3-4 years – from holding an early residency at Panorama Bar in 2004 to finding his true calling at the much loved Labyrinth Festival in 2007 – become one of the most highly regarded and visionary techno figures of the past decade.
Having been busy in the studio long before any of his initial productions heard the sound of day, Donato has sculpted his slow-burning, voodooist techno with artisanal craftsmanship resulting in the now cult-like following that can be seen today.
A doctorate in Politics at the University of Rome and a deep sense of understanding and appreciation for music that can only come about through a life of musical study; Dozzy works on a multifaceted form of mutual exchange between himself and the crowd. The type of music that thrusts sound ahead of the other senses, we are exceptionally pleased to give you Donato Dozzy.
