Massimo Girardi, son of Italian parents and born in Belgium got in touch with music about 20 years ago. At the age of 11, he got his first dose of dance music and at age 14, he bought first compilation cd’s that featured hits from the biggest house clubs in Belgium and Ibiza. But it wasn’t until the age of 18, when he quit his professional football career with Anderlecht, that Massimo began to experience the true magic of house music. It was at this point that he realized music was his everything.
style="text-align: left;">At 19 years of age, he began performing in clubs and parties all over Belgium. He then realized that the only way to break the mold was to begin working on his very own productions. He soon teamed up with long time friend Hermanez and together they released his first EP on Monique Musique which was charted and supported by names such as Marco Carola, Gregor Tresher, Brothers’ Vibe to name a few.
Nowadays, Massimo can be seen at some of the finest parties in Europe including the world famous “Circo Loco” parties in Belgium and Holland. He has had the pleasure to share the decks with artists such as Tanzmann, Carola, Arpiar, Zip, Baby Ford, Tania Vulcano, Jose de Divina and many more. Apart from his busy studio sessions and vigorous touring schedule, Massimo is also the current resident at Belgium’s famous Fuse club for State of Flow, ran by his friend Igor Vicente.
Massimo Girardi has been on this journey for almost two decades since first hearing electronic music on a compilation he bought as a child.
The next step came when he hooked up with friend Hermanez and the pair began releasing their own tech house bombs on labels like Monique Musique, soon picking up chart support from heavyweights like Brothers Vibe, Marco Carola and Gregor Tresher.
Nowadays Massimo is running Memoria Recordings together with Izaak De Bruyn. More releases & showcases to come.
