DJ GINO is founder and executive producer of SONICA FESTIVAL. Now a veteran about psychedelic music gatherings, he begins his active participation since 1990, immediately keen on acid-techno frequencies of that age. In 1993 he buys his first desks technics-1200, after having been collecting a large vinyl archive and, getting in touch with local insiders, Gino starts to collaborate for the production of several parties in Italy (Naples, his native land) with famous artists from London and Detroit underground scene.
After a pause, gone-by 1996 to 1999, when he's been traveling throughout South American as well as Oriental cultures, Gino comes back to psychedelic scene attending most of the best events around the globe.
