We are back at SWG3 with one of Drumcodes finest - Layton Giordani (Drumcode/Truesoul/Intec)
Blossoming as one of Techno’s prestige talents, Layton Giordani has genuinely displayed his character through performances world-wide. Setting the bar high, Layton sweeps the ears of listeners from his significant DJ sets & catalog of productions.
His first mega release ‘Careless Suggestions’ on Phobiq Records catapulted his name into the limelight. With massive support coming from Deadmau5 on the Ultra main stage at WMC in 2014 to being aired by BBC Radio 1 & Carl Cox’s notorious Global Radio show, the track stayed in the Beatport Techno Top 100 chart for over half a year.
Since then he has seen a steady stream of releases over the last two years. Starting with Carl Cox’s & Jon Rundell’s Intec in 2015, his ‘Never Forgotten’ EP went straight to No.10 on the Beatport Techno chart. Layton then got picked up by Adam beyer with his ‘Unspoken’ EP dropping on Adam’s Truesoul in the summer of 2016. His Beatport success continued with the title track climbing to No.3 in the Techno chart.
Having already performed events with a selection of artists including Adam Beyer, Carl Cox, Solomun, John Digweed, Len Faki, Alan Fitzpatrick and Monika Kruse to name a few, we can expect this talented New Yorker to step his game up in 2017 with gigs confirmed in Europe and North America, at some of the biggest festivals techno has to offer.
With much to come from Layton, he’s one you need to keep your eye on as he continues to bring his innovative, infectious sound to us all in 2017.
