Thunderously thumping rhythms, darkly atmospheric soundscapes, and electrifying energy that’s impossible to ignore. Welcome to the delightfully dark world of Giorgio Leone (IT), an emerging Techno artist from Taiwan who is currently bringing his pounding drums to the global stage. His sound is bold, ethereal, and bound to get even the deadest of dancefloors ignited into euphoria-dripped bliss. All of his songs have a strong groove as they lusciously layer over a dreamy atmosphere that’s brimming with synth-dripped energy.
Born in 1991 in Catania Italy, he was always inclined towards composing music. He started immersing himself in the local DJ and producer scene, then by age sixteen he was crafting his own tracks. By the age of eighteen, he had begun to perform gigs around some of Catania’s most well-known clubs. He started his career right after graduating from high school. His shows at local clubs gave him the much-needed boost he needed to start gaining a buzz in the industry. He’s known for his ability to really hook the audience throughout the whole show with his commanding stage presence. He has also formed his own music group “Our Muzik” since moving to Taiwan which brings global recognition to the techno scene in the country. “Our Muzik Records” has even become the label he’s running. His aim is to just create the best vibes he can through his music. To break boundaries in the electronic genre and bring all his listeners to energy-induced intoxication. His goal always has been to make people feel great through his songs. He first made his mark through live events, wowing audiences around the country with his electrifying performance style. From here he put out his first songs in 2020 entitled “Infectious” and “Call Me”. The songs he crafts are often self-reflective in nature, touching on his experiences through life.

Q: What’s your motto or the advice you live by?
Ans: Every person you will ever meet, has SOMETHING to teach you…pay attention!
Q: For our readers who have never heard your music, explain your sound in 5 words?
Ans: I’d describe my music as “dark” techno and tech-house, with a powerful groove and a combination of positive and enthusiastic feelings.
Q: Who are your inspirations?
Ans: Every person who tries to live in harmony with themselves, other people, and the environment, inspires me. Most people spend their time rushing somewhere, pursuing an illusion of happiness. I aim to live a healthy, balanced life while also adding value to the lives of others around me. And I’m grateful to have a few persons in my life that are on the same path as me, and they are my daily motivation.
Q: Do you have any events coming up or recording going on right now?
Ans: I’m putting a lot of effort to release as many songs as possible, and then obtain shows at the most prominent clubs in Taiwan and Asia. A few more tracks will be released in the next months; this year, I aim to increase the quantity of releases and push myself to new levels.
Q:Do you have any advice for anyone wanting to sing as a career or just advice about careers in general?
Ans: I want to motivate everyone to follow their ambitions and never give up on them, just like I did and continue to do. It is fundamental to be in a good atmosphere in order to be effective; I had to relocate from Europe to Asia to give my career a big boost, and this decision worked wonderfully. If I am where I am now, it is because I was brave in the face of many crucial decisions. Be aware that not everyone will have good comments for you; some may simply dislike your style or just wish to annoy you; these are the kind of individuals you should ignore and take strength from your fans; they are the ones who will make the difference in the end. It is also great to be active on social media, however, it is important to keep in mind that life is quite different in the real world.
Q: When and why did you start playing?
ANS: I began to explore Catania’s techno scene, where I met a couple of other producers and DJs. This prompted me to take the initial steps toward becoming a disc jockey, and then to a closer look at music creation since I’ve always wanted to express myself via the music I compose and perform. Since I was a teenager, I’ve always had a love for music.
Q: Do you perform in public? Describe those occasions? Concerts, radio, TV?
Ans: I used to be on the radio for a few years, but I’ve opted to focus on making more music and releasing tracks on major labels. In the future, I’ll absolutely consider returning to the radios, despite the fact that I have a lot of requests. Also, I am currently performing more in public, it is a way I prefer because it lets you connect more with people and it is totally a different feeling to me.
Q: Do you get nervous before a performance or a competition?
Ans: Nerves, worry, and tension are all part of the daily life of a performer, in my opinion. I’ve had to deal with performance anxiety throughout my career; I initially felt nervous during my adolescence and university studies. However, as musicians grow older and gain more ability, they gain stronger stress management to handle it.
Q: What advice would you give to beginners who are nervous?
Ans: Don’t be shocked if you experience some anxiety. Don’t panic if you are nervous before a performance. Do not be deterred or intimidated by the sensation. Let it exists as it is. Remind yourself that this is normal and that it’s just your nervous system getting ready to go. Recognize that it is up to you to make the best of it. To do this, use your positive affirmations and soothing techniques. After that, go for it!.
Q: How often and for how long do you practice?
Ans: Every week, I practice by making a one-hour mix. On Fridays, I upload it for my mates to listen to, and they receive a free mix to rage to every weekend, as well as the opportunity to tell me what they liked and didn’t like. For almost a year, I’ve been doing it once a week. Lately, I gig so often that I seldom practice, unless it’s for a high-profile event where I want to do some insane routines. My time is now more focused on creating and finding new music.
Thanks for taking time out of your day:)
