Angelo Paciotti is 30-year-old Italian DJ Tradelove. A full time professional for more than a decade, he has released a number of hot singles including ‘Saxone’ and ‘Bring the Beat’ with support coming in at the time from big names like Roger Sanchez. He’s worked with labels like Universal, Net’s Work International and Melodica, and has also worked with Soung4Group as one half of the dup Criminal Vibes.
Tradelove has continues to tour and produce on his own, with results like the solid house beats of ‘Get Down’ on LoudBit Records shooting up the Beatport chart to position number two after just one week of release. Another hit followed in the form of ‘Rock the Casbah’, which managed to get Radio 1 playlisted and support from across the board including Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong and Ministry of Sound radio. Follow ups on LoudBit like ‘Tumbia Too’ and ‘Pum Back’ did just as well and helped cement Tradelove as one of the finest house producers out there. Proof, if it were needed, came with the fact Tradelove was nominated as Breakthrough Artist of the Year at the 2012 Beatport awards for his ‘Rock the Casbah’ track, whilst his remix of The Black Project feat. Kilian ‘Off The Wall (Tradelove Remix)’ was nominated for the Beatport Music Award of Top House Track of the Year in 2011. Few producers are as on their game as Tradelove right now, and with plenty more house bombs up his sleeve that’s unlikely to change any time soon.
