A global favourite in the dub/psy-electronic music scenes, producer and solo artist GAUDI keeps his ever-growing fan base with his infectious bass-driven tunes and innovative production tecniques.
There’s no easy way to encapsulate GAUDI’s vast body of work, for the past three decades he has been shattering genre barriers, pioneering world-music, electronic-dub and reggae music, amassing a stunning collection of originals, albums, remixes and collaborations with artists such as: The Orb, Simple Minds, Lee Scratch Perry, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Trentemoller, Deep Forest, Lamb, Sizzla, Bob Marley, Shpongle, Beats Antique, Michael Franti, Dub FX, Balkan Beat Box, Youth, Dub Pistols, Grandmaster Flash, The Beat, Barrington Levy, Afrika Bambaataa to name just a few. Whether he is finessing high-profile projects in the studio, or whipping a crowd into a frenzy, the Italian-born UK-based artist places all importance on sonic perfection, and providing the best aural experience for his fans. He has done so for his entire career, which has seen the release of 15 solo albums, over a hundred compilations, 250 productions and a number of movie soundtracks. Live, every GAUDI performance is unique and unpredictable in the best possible way as, honouring the traditions of old school dub, he never uses a computer on stage.
A consummate musician and live performer, he plays theremin, minimoog, vocoder, tape echoes, percussion, multi-effects, stylophone and dub sirens, mixing his live dub vocals through analogue equipment to maximum effect.
Beyond the music, a burning passion reveals itself in a scathing rebuttal of tyranny and oppression through sonic resistance.
