Sicilian by birth, Irish by adoption and nomadic by spirit Alberto Ciotta a.k.a. Al-Jive Mestizo has been seen rocking private Irish parties for years but it's only when he came back from a 7 months long South American trip after quitting his day time corporate job in 2014 that he fully embraced the public dj life style. Since then he's been gigging at several Irish festivals, clubs and bars and in last 2 years has been driving his van through South Europe playing his eclectic music selections at events and festivals in Portugal, Spain, France, Croatia and Italy also.
His sets initially, mainly, influenced by electroswing and balkan/gypsy music, are now an eclectic mix of global underground electronic sounds ranging from the chilled downtempo to the more dancefloor friendly ones, all spiced up with a borderless feeling.
If today in the world there is who wants to build up walls to divide people, there is also who as Al-Jive Mestizo wants to smash them down with his music proposal
