Today it is the turn of another artist who is part, and has recently debuted, of the radio program “Ecoama” of Pure Ibiza Radio:
Simone Vitullo, born in 1986, DJ, producer and remixer, is one of the most talented names of the Italian new wave.
Born in Italy, where he grew up, he started traveling very young and now lives between Miami and Italy. Simone Vitullo is the owner of Go Deeva Records, one of the most important labels in the music scene that over time has published many important artists and international successes, besides Utopya, Skulp Music and Basica Recordings
Simone Vitullo’s musical journey began at the age of 13, when he began to follow his brother who was already a DJ at that time. His city influenced his approach to music: at the age of 16 he started working in a radio dance station, which greatly influenced the definition of his musical style
Always looking for an innovative sound, his is a deep melodic music that is inextricably linked to its deepest and most percussive roots along with modern counterparts. His sound is a nice mix of Organic House, Afro House and Melodic House, and sometimes even Indie Dance: genres that constantly influence him.
Over the years Simone Vitullo has performed in some of the most renowned clubs, such as Ritter Butzke in Berlin, Wall and Do Not Sit On The Forniture in Miami, Sound in Los Angeles, Ministry of Sound and Egg in London, Sankeys in Ibiza, Titilla/Cocoricò in Riccione, Basement Club in Argentina, Mantra in Kiev, Pacha in Munchen, Drai’s After Hours in Las Vegas, Duran Bar and Mono Bar in Moscow, Bravalla Festival in Sweden, Amazon in Brazil and many more…
He has remixed and produced famous artists such as Todd Terry, Tube & Berger, Mark Knight, David Herrero, Andre Crom, Metodi Hristov, The Scumfrog, Betoko, Hector Couto and produced several worldwide hits through his labels Go Deeva Records, Skulp Music and Basica Recordings. His songs are always present in the playlists of the best DJs in the world, on Beatport and Traxsource Top 100, where he has reached the first position several times and the top 10 several times.
One of his most successful releases was “Umberto Ep”, for Steve Bug’s historic Poker Flat Recordings label. Currently, after the last two years with releases on his Go Deeva Records and Skulp Music, and Wired, he has many releases in the pipeline.
What are your musical plans for the present and the immediate future?
I’ve a lot of releases coming out in next months and I’m working a lot with my labels, especially with Go Deeva Records.
Speaking of releases, what were your most recent projects, which are the current ones and those of the nearest future? And which labels have you worked with?
During the last 2 years I had some releases on my Go Deeva Records label, Skulp Music and Wired…. I still can’t announce on which label I’m going to release in the future… It must be still secret… ☺ In my almost 20 years of productions, I’ve been released on a lot of labels… Poker Flat Recordings, Defected, Toolroom, Off Recordings etc… and of course on my labels! ☺
What evolution do you think electronic music is experiencing on the international scene?
I think that afro house will be the main floor genre … and Organic house, Melodic House / Techno and Indie Dance will be the underground side of electronic music for the next one or two years.
Where are you now? How is it going at the moment the discos and clubs situation?
At moment I’m in Italy working in studio every day. I was in US and Mexico till 2 weeks ago, so there is going really good, parties every day and no restrictions… In Italy and Europe something is going to reopening slowly… I’ll play in Paris and Italy in the next 2 weeks.
