I had never understood the reason, but, since I was born, all the people have been calling me with my catchy and delicious “short name” Lello.
When I was four, I liked assembling and disassembling my favourite toys, that were my small orange record-player, my keyboard and my drum. When I was seven, during a party, I stayed many hours to observe a “strange man” who played music with a lot of records. He also carried with him things that I haven’t seen before. I thought. “It should be fantastic to play music and be paid for doing it!!!”.
I discovered later that he was a D.J. ... :)
In 1988, I had my first P.C. ; it was an Amiga 500. I started to play video-games with it, but it was exciting when I understood that I could also make musical tests with it !
Since then, I discovered many things and I made many purchases ... my first turntables Technics SL 1200, my first “Sampler” Akai S950, but, above all, my first records (the very first was “French Kiss” by Lil Louis)
