BioAndrea Santoro is born in 1983 in Lecce. His natural bent for music starts in 1996 when he begin djing house music with friends.. During these years Andrea discovers the various flavours of club music, from techno to deep house that he suddenly loves. He feels attraction for the nightlife and so he starts playing as a dj in several parties in clubs of his town. In the following years he approaches to the production of music releasing dancefloor addicted house tracks. His first work, produced with the collaboration of Loaded and Guido Nemola released on Street Vibes, is licensed in many countries and played by several djs around the world.
