Roberto De Carlo sounds like an artist name – but it’s his real name. That there’s an real aritst behind it answers his music. Born in 1979 the swiss-based south-Italian puts all his temperament into his vocation and that’s not only heard by the party-crowd. Everybody listening to his sound quickly realices his honest passion.
Roberto was always fascinated by the clubscene, probably because of his father who was the owner of the legendary “TIVOLINO” nightclub in the mid-eighties, which he visited the first time at the early age of 6. As a teenager inspired by the sounds Boris Dlugosch, Mousse T. and Brian Tappert, Roberto started to work the turntables and collected his first DJ-experinces in 1995 at the age of 16.
Due to his convincing House-Sets with influences of Soul and Disco-Funk Roberto soon was invited to play at various Swiss and international top-clubs, such as the “Kaufleuten“ (Zurich, Switzerland), “Atlantis“ (Basle, Switzerland), “Studio“ and ”Airport“ (Würzburg, Germany), Nachtcafé (Darmstadt, Germany), “Republic Café“ (Salzburg, Austria), “Bar Italia” (Vienna, Austria), “Lazareti“ (Dubrovnik, Croatia) or Hotel Delano and The Clevelander (Miami, USA). Roberto always stayed true to his motto – “Only Soulful Music”. With his precise technique and his inimitable sound with a touch of Soul, Jazz and Latino, he get’s every location into the right positive mood.
In 2000 Roberto started to produce in his own Studio. Already two years later he worked in several projects and with different musicians. In 2003 he released his first official remix under the project-name “Souldrops” on the top-label “Purple Music”. Followed by two own productions in 2004 “Freedom” together with the “house-diva from Brooklyn” Inaya Day and the first “One Touch – Ready?!“ single together with “The Soul Voice“ Colin Corvez Rich from the “Peppermint Jam” imprint. It was the same year when GOGO Music released Roberto De Carlo’s remix of “Seek – Everafter”.
2005 was a much promising year for the artist. The collaboration with one of the leading labels of the soulful house scene GOGO Music got closer and Roberto released the club-hit single “Roberto De Carlo feat. Joshua – Soulful Things” on this imprint. It was licensed to several compilations including the “Connected” series of Jay-J on Defected. Next to “Soulful Things” two hot remixes (“Toni Sea & Ralf GUM – Beautiful” and “Inaya Day & Dennis Le Gree – Try me”) have been released by GOGO Music.
In the year 2006 Roberto De Carlo produced the second “One Touch” single “Live your Life”, sung by Sharlene Hector. The track was released on Purple Music and was instandly taken on the WAX WARS compilation (Defected, Soulfuric, Purple Music). On GOGO Music followed “Magic Star” which was remixed by Simon Grey amongst others. “Magic Star” repeated the great success of the first single “Soulful Things”. Next to a bunch of positive feedback and various compilation licensings, it convinced as well Tony Humphries who used it on his Masterclass Vol. 2 Compilation (Mn2S) and Ministry of Sound (Australia) took it for their “Chillout Sessions 10” CD. For the Swiss label Label Digital Funk Records Roberto produced „R + M featuring Malena – Ave Pasajera“, which received remixed by Richard Earnshaw. In collaboration with Steven Stone was created the production “Believe”, which was licensed by Soultonic and was released in August 07. Next to his own productions Roberto made two high quality remixes in 2006. For GOGO Music he remixed “Miami Theme“ by RAW ARTISTIC SOUL and for UK’s Audiowhores he reworked the first Tempogroove single “Not going Back“ featuring Pete Simpson.
2007 & 2008 “The change“ With much love Roberto De Carlo has built a completely new High-End Recording-Studio called RDC Studio and in collaboration with celebrated musicians like Simon Grey or Opolopo his sound takes an exceptionally way. You can listen a first taste on the remixes “Good in my Soul“ for Bobby & Steve’s Label Zoo Groove Stereo and on ”Revolutions” for Duffnote.
2009 “Never Forget” was his third single for GOGO Music and followed with the Remix of Ralf GUM and Inaya Day “Lose My Worries” the collaboration with GOGO Music goes on-an-on. Next to this he scores with two slammin’ own Productions on Purple Music “You’re The One For Me” and “Electric Soul Power” and with the funky Remixes on Purple Trax “Syndia” from The Funk Ensemble – aka Dario D’Attis and on Shifted Music from Jay-J’s new Album “Reforminator” Roberto De Carlo should like to surprise everyone.
