Cristian Collodoro was born in Sicily, the beautiful Italian island, in 1993.
At the early age of fourteen, driven by an interest for disco music, Cristian made his debuts in local venues by doing his first mix-ups with Underground and House Discs.
Following a period of artistic soul-searching, Cristian’s musical interests shifted towards Techno Music with this giving him the opportunity to refine his mixing techniques. Collodoro’s style – a powerful combination of charisma and engaging delivery from behind the console – soon came to earn him widespread appreciation both from the crowd and fellow colleagues.
Beyond any doubt, Cristian’s fundamental artistic transformation begun at the age of 20 when he moved to London.
Based in the British capital, Collodoro has worked as producer and has mastered new genres- in particular Techno Detroit, Hard Techno and Acid Techno.
Indeed, his EP “Entropia” – composed by (Entropia, Genesis and Rush) released in June 2018 on Finder Records – smashed into the Hard Techno Releases on Beatport to sit at #10 and Hard Techno Charts on Beatport with The Best Tracks Summer 2018 to sit at #1. His remix "DeKRA - Pyrochroa (Cristian Collodoro Remix)” released in March 2019 on Insectum Records has been a huge success climbing the Hard Techno Tracks on Beatport and sit at #36 for months.
Similarly, it has been in London that Cristian’s perspectives have effectively moved from the local to the global. Growing recognition, both for his technical and personal qualities, has taken the promising DJ to the worldwide-famous clubs and venues of the likes of Ministry of Sound, Egg London, Lightbox, 93 Feet East, Cafe 1001, CELL 200, Aquarium, Shelter, Shoreditch Platform, Club Reina, Cyberdog in London, UK; Der Weiße Hase in Berlin, Germany; ReUse and Casa Cuba with Docks Lab, Mob Disco Theatre with Unlocked in Palermo, Sicily; Don Mezcal in Playa del Carmen, Mexico; Goya Social Club, in Madrid, Spain; and more around the world.
Since the launch of his podcast KARMA Techno Podcast, Collodoro’s sets have been played on Techno Live Sets, Deep Tech Minimal, Only Techno, Techno England, Partyinfo.si, M2O allo stato puro, Platinum Radio London, Techno and Rave, I LOVE MINIMAL TECHNO, London One Radio, Techno Love Rave, Techno Station, Techno TV, WeCanMix Radio Show, Feel the Beat on RCS Radio and many more.
Cristian has also appeared in a number of podcasts and interviews.
In 2018, he’s been interviewed and recorded a set for Electronic Groove (available on Soundcloud and Mixcloud at EG Techno Podcasts) known for hosting internationally renowned artists such as Klaudia Gawlas, Fatima Hajji, Nicole Moudaber, Oliver Huntemann, Hito, Alex Stein, Oscar L, Fabio Florido, Stefano Noferini, Christian Smith, Mark Reeve, Stephan Hinz, Stacey Pullen and many more.
Also in 2018, Collodoro appeared on a documentary – ‘The Italian job’ – produced by Sky’s TV Channel PopEconomy where he shared his insights on pursuing a career as a successful DJ.
Collodoro’s invaluable experience in London has contributed enormously to the
making of his eclectic musical tastes. Most importantly, perhaps, this experience has instilled into him artistic and intellectual curiosity which constantly propels him towards new artistic journeys.
