Alberto Castellana a.k.a. A45 (born on Feb 8th 1992) got in touch with the world of music for the first time at the age of 8, when almost for fun, he started to listen to his father’s CDs, more specifically to the Pink Floyd’s “The Dark side of the Moon” and “Echoes”.
Captivated by the rising sounds of ‘electronic music’, he began to discover the real beauty of Techno. In 2002 he was impressed by some tracks from “Jazz N’ Groove- Soulfuric Session”, and, in those years, he decided to devote himself to the world of music production and entertainment. Thanks to some digital software he created his first work that gave him satisfaction and a stronger stimulus to continue along that road.
He then started to work and improve himself and to take his knowledge further, discovering, as a consequence, the deeper essence of the Deep House with Frankie Knuckles, Kerri Chandler, Louie Vega, Miguel Migs, Roger Sanchez and all the major exponents of the movement. Improving his knowledge, he understood how modern music has been influenced by the music of the past. He is enchanted by Miles Davis’, John Coltraine’s, Charlie Parker’s, Bill Evans’, Oscar Peterson’s e Niels Pedersen’s Jazz, but also by Jeff Mills’, Octave One’s, Surgeon’s, Kenny Larkin’s, Derrick May’s and Carl Craig’s Techno Detroit.
