Doctor Keos was born on the Halloween night of 1988.
He is passionate about music even before he can be born and cultivates his passion for music in the 90s.
This leads him to have a huge passion for Italian-dance music. Among the artists who appreciate most Gigi D’Agostino prevails among all, reputed among other things a master not only because of one of the pseudonyms with which Gigi D’ag calls himself, but also because the style of Doctor Keos is totally influenced by his songs. Among the other artists influencing Doctor Keos’ music are Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren (from whom he also received several positive feedbacks for his tracks), Gabry Ponte and many others who made history in the 90s. He has recently followed a lot of younger artists, being influenced by artists like Hardwell, Martin Garrix, Dimitri Vegas & Mike, deadmau5, Skrillex, David Guetta, Ummet Ozcan, DVBBS. Particularly fond of hardstyle music, he conducted some musical experiments in search of his style also in this genre of music and among the artists of this caliber he supports a lot of Headhunterz and Tatanka. As a musician he began at the age of only 7 years starting to compose the first melodies, while as a DJ he began his journey at the age of 11 years beginning to realize private events. At the age of 16 he began his career as a music producer for the desire to combine the art of DJ with his talent as a musician.
He then began to create the first remixes and the first mash-ups. First of all the remix of “Eins Zwei Polizei” in key techno (2006) and the mash-up of “Bla-Bla-Geordie” (2004).
As he grew up in a poor family and did not live in a musically developed country, he had to create his own path without anyone’s help. For this reason, his first official releases are slow to arrive. In fact, the first songs are published only in 2011, the year in which he founded his record label. But before having a certain musical maturity they spend 3 years. In fact it is in 2013 that the song “Taranteiro” is published, which gets more than 10 million plays. A great success indeed for Doctor Keos because he never had the support of record labels (which is why he founded his own) or management agencies.
Another success comes in 2015, with the song “Music is the Power”. Although the results are less than “Taranteiro”, he still got more than 1 million streaming ratings.
To date he has produced more than 50 songs and 7 official remixes.
As a DJ he has played throughout his region (Calabria) and in different cities of Italy. Among these: Milan, Asti, Turin, Rome, Ostia, Catania, Castronovo di Sicilia, Carovigno, Porto Cesareo, Castiadas. Outside Italy he performed in Zurich, Rhäzüns (both in Switzerland) and in Egypt in Marsa Alam.
He is one of the best-known DJs in Italy thanks to his productions.
