Merseyside has a vibrant electronic music scene, from underground warehouse parties to huge sell-out events that attract some of the best DJs in the world. There’s also an abundance of amazingly talented local DJs and it’s something we like to shout about at La Vida Liverpool. La Vida Liverpool In The Mix is a series of exclusive mixes from some of Merseyside’s best DJs to celebrate our thriving scene and provide you with some delightful sounds for your listening pleasure. This mix is provided by Giggio C.
The latest feature in the La Vida Liverpool In The Mix series offers something a bit different. DJ Giggio C — originally from Naples, long term resident of Liverpool and currently residing in London — has produced a special mix for us. Giggio, returning to his second home of Liverpool for his birthday this weekend, has put together a tribute to his favourite DJ, Claptone. This mix is a masterful medley of Claptone’s floor filling big hitters and for anyone into their house/techno, this is a must listen!
As a DJ, Giggio started on vinyls at an early age — influenced by the likes of Masters At Work, Frankie Knuckles and Roger Sanchez — and soon became involved in the house and techno scene of Naples, Italy. Giggio moved to the UK at the age of 18 and started to DJ in London, then Glasgow before moving to Liverpool. In Liverpool he founded No Label Project with Lishai Rice — a charitable events brand — and although he’s moved to London for work he regularly returns to Liverpool for house and techno events, and of course his birthday this weekend.
La Vida Liverpool says a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Giggio C. To help him celebrate check out this amazing mix of his as a tribute to the legendary DJ, Claptone. Check out Giggio C on MIXCLOUD and check out No Label Project on FACEBOOK. Enjoy….
