About



A global favorite in the dub/electronic and world-music scenes, producer and solo artist GAUDI keeps his ever-growing fan base with his infectious bass-driven tunes and innovative production techniques. Live, every GAUDI performance is unique and unpredictable, he’s a consummate musician that plays theremin, minimoog, vocoder, tape echoes, percussion, multi-effects, stylophone and dub sirens, mixing his live dub vocals through analog equipment to maximum effect. Beyond the music, a burning passion reveals itself in a scathing rebuttal of tyranny and oppression through sonic resistance. Whether he is finessing high-profile projects in the studio, or whipping a crowd into a frenzy, the UK-based Italian-born artist places all importance on sonic perfection and providing the best aural experience for his fans.
