Italian DJ and producer Cristiano Spiller – better known as Spiller is best known as the producer behind the international hit ‘Groove Jet’. Cristiano sat down to compose his very first tune in 1995, using a home PC and a sampler. Barely two years later, the Venetian was making a big noise around the world with the single ‘Spiller From Rio’. The Latin-flavoured house track swiftly became a club anthem and made it into the top ten on the Billboard dance charts. Not long after, Spiller applied his golden touch as a remixer to tunes by high-profile artists such as Gloria Gaynor, Matt Bianco, St Germain, Bob Sinclar, Run DMC and Smoke City. In 1999 he again set the clubs alight with another house single Batucada – a new take on Marcos Valle’s original.
The following year he became one of the best-known Italian musicians thanks to his next single ‘Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)’. Named after a Miami club, this widely acclaimed disco house track was initially a club hit as an instrumental, but exploded in popularity after it was injected with the vocals of UK’s Sophie Ellis-Bextor. Along with Modjo’s ‘Lady’, Groovejet was arguably the biggest club tune of the year and won the top spot on singles and dance charts in many countries. He later released the electro-funk tune ‘Cry Baby’ with remixes from Royksopp, and Sola, a groovy disco track with a pinch of French flavour. At present, Spiller is spinning in clubs all over the globe as well as running his own label Nano Records, which he established in 2003.
