Bio:

As a founding father of Slovenian techno, Valentino Kanzyani has been involved in the country’s dance scene since the mid 1990s. A celebrated DJ first and foremost, Valentino built a solid reputation for himself whilst he was resident spinner of Ambasada Gavioli - Slovenia’s most famous electronic music club. His fame grew when he started spinning on three turntables as standard.

Joining forces with fellow countryman and techno champion Umek, Valentino saw his first release in 1999 under the moniker Recycled Loops. Due to the success of their joint EPs, Valentino Kanzyani and Umek set up Recycled Loops as a record label, which further helped establish Valentino as a major player in Eastern Europe’s techno scene. A number of world tours, festival appearances and big club gigs followed.

Whilst Valentino’s sound has evolved over the years, he is committed to protecting the art of the DJ with real integrity. Valentino set up his label Jesus Loved You in 2005, for instance, just as digital downloading was becoming the main dissemination channel for the music industry. Instead of joining the trend, Valentino decided to release his label’s music mainly on vinyl as a way to support the true original format of the DJ. And it is his love for vinyl that has seen him flourish today, to become one of most respected underground vinyl djs around.

Through 2012, Valentino released a series of Eps on Cadenza in the build up to his debut artist album ‘Love & Gratitude’. The latest EP as well as a continuous mixed cd which includes all tracks from the project was released in April 2013. The project showcases Valentino Kanzyani’s underground house vision and it also represents a new chapter in Valentino Kanzyani’s career – as part of Cadenza’s booking agency.

In the past few years he released several exciting projects like his “Love & Gratitude” Album on Cadenza, after that his track “Bobby on Drums” has been released on the m_nus MinMAX compilation.

He's definitely the man who never changes with his quality of music. He's still got that unique, elemental, linear building style of sound, just in a different way. No matter if we're talking about his edgy and pumping Techno, his raw sounds of Minimal, or his deeply psychedelic and tribal visions of Deep and Tech House, he's still a genius. His "Love & Gratitude" album is fairly the top of his work so far.
