Every dancer, every darkened club, every DJ, and every artist that FABIO FLORIDO encounters leaves an indelible impression on him.
Fabio’s rise to his most recent heights – joining the likes of Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Chris Liebing, Louie Vega, Nicole Moudaber, Dubfire, Paco Osuna, Matador and others as a PLAYdifferently MODEL1 Ambassador – is the outcome of a lifetime of learning. From the structured confines of conservatory training, to what he actually considers ”going to music school” amongst the sweaty ravers of Tuscany’s underground scene; to training a watchful eye on electronic music legends from the front row of late night London club sets.
After moving to Ibiza in 2013, Fabio forged connections with many of the influencers who originally inspired him. He took control of the dancefloor like never before, and in 2014 became a resident at ENTER. Space Ibiza, alongside appearances at ENTER. events around the globe. His particular style of techno also brought him in front of audiences at festivals Awakenings, Sonus, Tomorrowland, Time Warp, Sunwaves and clubs like Grelle Forelle (Vienna), Cocorico (Italy), Ambasada Gavioli (Slovenia), Cacao Beach (Bulgaria) and Barraca (Spain).
Labels like Hustler Muzik, Selected Records, The Triangle and Beat Therapy were early to spot Fabio’s signature appeal and harness it for solo and split releases. Fuelled by the vocal support of Richie Hawtin, Dubfire, Luigi Madonna and Sasha Carassi, more EPs and remixes for European labels followed: Black Swan, Night Light Records, Minus, SCI+TEC and Elevate.
In his own words, each of Fabio’s interactions has culminated in him arriving at this exact point: balancing his compulsive passion for music creation with his passionate consumption of nightlife, in constant pursuit of forward-looking sounds, tools and technology.
