The Rise & Fall of Thrash Metal | Riccardo Straccia
- Heavy Metal
Riccardo Straccia, the son of an Italian father and a Belgian mother, grew up in a multicultural small town in Belgium. It's here that he found his love for different genres.
He started as a bass player for a hardcore punk band at the age of 14, while learning jazz in school.
But shortly after, he discovered electronic music and became fond of producing and DJing.
Though now based in Berlin, his sound is very much a product of his roots - happy, hip-breaking beats with big melodies and euphoric atmospheres alongside plenty of energy.
