What is this garbage?!!
Mid 80's Italo-disco, projected into late 90's italo-dance / trance, with the simplest of 4-beat, repetitive italo-disco bassline, cheesy trance synths, and some vocals and that's it............. A formula that was copied & pasted to ALL of his tracks.
Literally the worst electronic dance producer i have ever heard in my entire life. Cheesy, empty , and pointless music a.f.
I 'm devoted to electronic dance music for almost 30 years now, listening from oldskool rave '89-'92 (Belgian techno, UK hardcore, early house), to Eurodance (93-96), commercial house from the whole 2000's (disco house, electro house. etc), to EDM 2010, to dance pop of 2010's,
but i will never listen to this waste, named Gigi D'Agostino. I've even regret that i bought ''L'Amour Toujours'' album sitting in my vinyl collection, and i've never heard a single Gigi track playing out even once anywhere.............and that means something!

I myself as a kid grew up listening to Gigi's tracks from the late 90s and early 00s only 15 years later to find out his pre-commercial work during mid 90s him and R.A.F. By Picotto before both of them went selling out. Those two were making some mad mid 90s trance before jumping mainstream. E.g. check out Various - Dreamhouse, Volume One Le Voyage (1996), it's gold.

King of the catchy dance music of the late 90's, Gigi D'agostino knew its music and how to get people to listen. With an arsenal of melodic voices, powerfull and very entertaining bass loops and a bunch of up-beat and "hip" samples, this guy gave clubbing in the 90's a sountrack of its own! Don't be fooled for the post-90's Gigi D'agostino music; he, somehow, just wasn't able to revive the 90's experience and, lamentably, the sound he worked on for so long wasn't atractive anymore when the 00's begun anyway. So, you can be a snob and say Gigi is a cheesy and vulgar trance/dance artist, but any good music listener should appreciate the great sense of melody this guy had... Maybe poorly executed for the contemporary ears, but very well constructed for the pop music genre of all times.

People tend to misunderstand Gigi, mainly because he's seen as a dance artist yet he makes blatantly cheesy pop.

I think you should listen to the man's music regardless of preconceptions.

Enjoy the early classics like Noise Maker Theme, Marimba, Fly, Giallone and his remix of Android for what they are: First class Mediterranean Progressive with a large slice of dark trance.

But don't dismiss the more recent poppier sound, or you miss out on a feast of fun and catchy pop music.

Yes, that's right. Pop music. Listen with your heart, not with your too-cool-for-school ego...

EDIT: I have recently been investigating his Lento Violento style, and this is a radical departure for him. Highly recommended!

While I'd agree that much of what he's done in the past 5 years has been really bad, it wasn't always that way. Listen to "Sweetly", "My Dimension" or his remix of 2 Culture In A Room - Android. These are all inspired moments; unique, powerful and beautiful in their own way.

I'd say one of the worst producers I've ever heard. Proud creator or perhaps ambassidor of the "Gino beat", Gigi's music can be found playing out of poorly modded Celica's and Civic's. Think Final Fantasy soundtrack at 160BPM with a vocodered voice. Simplistic and EXACTLY carbon copied tracks produced poorly with tinker toy sounds.
