About Marco Trani

From Rome, Marco Trani has been one of the most acclaimed DJs of the clubs of Europe and appreciated music producer for some of the biggest international stars. At the end of the seventies he started very young to work as a sound engineer and speaker in the first private radio in Rome.

Soon after he took his first steps as a disc jockey at various nightclubs in the Rome hinterland further refining the technique of mixing. At just 18 years old he arrived in 1978 to the mundane and transgressive Easy Going disco, that just in the past weeks had restarted operation trying to raise.
