I am an Italian producer an mixing engineer
Sergio was born and raised in Napoli, a town under the shade of the dangerous volcano, il Vesuvio and also the hometown of Marco Carola, pizza, the mandolin and Planet Funk. He took his very first musical steps under the guidance of indie-electro outfit S.U.D. responsible for remixing the super-cool British project Hybrid, as well as talented Neapolitan producer called Katap.
Since then he has collaborated on Planet Funk's label "Bustin' Loose" as programmer and sound engineer. In the meantime he was giving birth to a new project together with mate Simone Frendo, their project "JeKO" is a well-known and loved project in the underground Neapolitan club scene, as both resident and creator of the popular party nights "RagTag".
JeKO has shared the DJ booth with Mr. Riva Starr, The Bloody Beetroots, Vicarious Bliss, Danny Rampling, Mark Moore and the inimitable Mr. Frankie Knuckles.
He currently resides in London where twice a month he rocks the clubs, Among many he played The Loft @ Ministry of Sound, The Den and East Village.
It was here that he was inspired to give the birth to his solo project entitled "W10" representing the area code where you can catch him in action, where he now lives and works. "W10" aims to be a blend of genres while ultimately resulting in pure house music. Cooking different ingredients to make the same housey cake.
