Born in 1985 in the Spanish District, the heart of Naples, Lucio has to be regarded as a real outstanding DJ/producer of Italian minimal-techno music.

Now he's working to a new experimental project that goes from Techno to Dubstep with some Cosmic Funk and Hip Hop influences too. Among the main clubs where Lucio has played we mention: Fuse (Bruxelles), Space and Privilege (Ibiza), Cocoon Club (Frankfurt), Weekend and Tresor (Berlin), Fabric (London), Club 4 (Barcelona), Carnival (Medellin) and Goa (Rome).
