Giorgio Daniele


I've started playing drums at the age of 16. I've played into different bands, and recorded many independent EPs. At the age of 21 i've started my formation as audio engineer. In recent years i've build up my home studio, and produced many artists in the rock and Alternative scene. I've never quit composing my own songs, and my last project is called Habaneko







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is freedom, it's our self-proclaim of existence. It gives me the chance of expressing my own self through vibes and rhythms

What is your music dream?

Pay the bills with my music.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I don't think to be able to accomplish stuff like that, but maybe this world would be better without people who puts Parmigiano on Spaghetti con le vongole.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

Smoke on the water

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Radiohead, Rhye, Alt-J

What inspires you to make music?

The need of expressing my own feelings. It starts from experiences and moods of the day. Sometimes it all starts when i learn something new. Producing often is not a matter of playing but a matter of listening.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

It's not a real message. I just want to SHARE my vision and my experiences, there's not a supreme will behind it.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

It's funny at the beginning, because sometimes i'm worried about the technical execution of the band or the audio in the hall, but later on i enjoy everything deeply. It's really rewarding.

How do you see the musicians’ reality nowadays? What could be improved?

Quality has dropped critically, because even with the technical improvements in audio section, everyone now think to be able to record theirself with practically no understanding of acoustic at all. Home studio is something good, but learning what music production is about is better.

What do you think of Drooble?

It's early to say but, it's a different way to share music. Interesting at the end.

What frustrates you most as a musician?

Ignorance and globalization of the listeners

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

Not so much. I prefer listening to new songs on streaming than going to festivals where the only thing that matters is booze.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

Humble and the ability to go over the boundaries of personal tastes. When there's that kind of approach, it's only a matter of promotion.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Habaneko for sure.
