Giuseppe Ottaviani (Live 2.0)
Giuseppe Ottaviani is an Italian trance musician. Ottaviani began studying piano at the age of 4 in Viterbo, a small Italian town near Rome. After attending music school in his early childhood and studying classical music as a teenager, he discovered electronic music. He started to play his first DJ sets at clubs and on local radio stations in 1995, and later began to use his computer to produce his own music.
Characterizing trance music’s energy in both approach and output, Italy’s Giuseppe Ottaviani has long been recognized as one of the genre’s most respected and prolific merchants. From his earliest studio work (as the engine behind esteemed group NU NRG), through to his latter-day output under his own name, he has established himself as a benchmark for preeminent trance. Over the last decade his trailblazing Giuseppe Ottaviani Live! and Giuseppe Ottaviani Live 2.0 evolutions have redened what a DJ does. In doing so, he’s put countless hands in the air and feet on the foor at some of the world’s best-known electronic music festivals.
With four studio albums and countless productions and remixes Giuseppe Ottaviani remains both contemporary and omnipresent in the scene continuing to win trance hearts and minds all over the globe. Giuseppe is set to bring his Live 2.0 show to Australia as part of Festival X and is an act that you can not afford to miss.
