Dj Deep Futuristic Project elaborates on how he stays inspired and reveals new upcoming projects.
Italian DJ Deep Futuristic has immersed himself in the electronic world since the 90s. He’s found inspiration from a diverse mix of genres, and his travels around the world have molded his evolving sound. The non-stop creative is developing new tracks while also starting a club night in Ischia.
I’ve read a little bit of your story online; you have always had a love for music, but when was the moment you realized you wanted to pursue being a DJ?
Yes, I always have had a big passion for music. I realized to be a DJ from the first moment I saw two records turn on the turntables together.
You have a wide range of musical inspiration that includes Pink Floyd and Depeche Mode, how do these artists, different sounds, and eras influence your tracks?
I have so many musical influences… but I wink a lot at the more electronic sounds, Pink Floyd changed my vision of the music for sure, Manuel Göttsching, and many others 80’s synth-pop band and music like Depeche Mode and more.
While beginning your career in music, you decided to move to the United States to experience the unground culture. Why did you feel like that was the necessary step you needed to take while on that learning journey?
In the early ’90s, when I started being a DJ and attending underground parties, most of the DJs who played in clubs here in Italy were American from the USA most of them from New York, Chicago, Detroit… The United States has been a strong attraction for me.
How have the travels you’ve made around the world impacted your music and creative process?
A lot… the comparison with other countries and cultures made me grow as a man and also artistically. Musical contaminations are in the peoples and customs of the countries. all of this is wonderful!
The electronic unground scene is very different in Europe compared to the United States, how would you describe the difference? How would you describe the culture regarding the fans and the overall environment?
There has been a change between the 90’ and now, club culture is still very strong in Europe. (although it is a bit on the decline) it is no coincidence that cities like Berlin, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Italy and also many cities in Eastern Europe boast a large number of clubs where some type of music is played. In the United States, clubs are almost extinct … if not commercial places.
As for your music, what do you have planned next? Can we expect any exciting new projects?
I started a new project in Berlin with a dear friend of mine … Practice What You Preach (P.W.Y.P.) our sound is a very dark post-punk electronic wave … but I continue to organize events and parties in Italy especially in Ischia where I live in the summer … under the name deep futuristic project. From February I will start my own night Sub_Cultura, once a month at the Blanco Disco new room: Sala #2 in Ischia, I’m so excited! Come and visit us it’s fun and we have breathtaking sunsets … followed by my music!
