Music is in the blood of Raffaele Calza, aka Raffa FL, as from a young age his musician father had an influence on his life. Raffa learnt to understand and perform music, and a natural progression came to DJ’ing at the tender age of just 14.
Fast forward a few years, and 2012 most certainly belongs to Raffa. He has releases set to launch on labels including Nurvous Records, Say Ahh! Records, Digital Delight and Swink Music, as well as releases on his own masterminded label ‘Tools and Stuff’ with DJ friends Dirty Culture. He has also been newly signed to underground UK label Love Not Money Records.
March 2012 saw Raffa step up his game with eagerly anticipated EP ‘Hot For You’ on Electronique. The EP included remixes by emerging UK talents Ashley Wild and Hot Since 82, Mexican house sleuths Climbers and French new kid Julien Sandre. All provide a diverse slant on the original charming work of this emerging Veronese talent. The release original reach the top 50 on the Beatport deep house chart.
Support was given for the track across the world, by well-respected DJ’s such as Laura Jones, Waifs & Strays, Wildkats, Droog and Russ Yallop.
Later this year Raffa will also release his remix of the classic Kim English track ‘Nitelife’, on Nurvous Records. He also has many other projects in the pipeline, continually pushing to produce quality house music, designed for lovers of the sound.
