Federico Gardenghi’s Journey to Becoming a Young DJ

Federico Gardenghi, one of the world’s youngest DJs, has joined us virtually here at Nexus Lounge Virtual at the Roof at theWIT. He talks about his journey to becoming a DJ, his latest projects, and takes part in our Take-5 series!

Federico was born in a small town in Italy on May 10, 2004. He showed his fascination with at the early age of 4. Two years later, he began experimenting with a demo version of Ableton Live. It wasn’t up to par with his present work, but the desire to write his songs was evident. He began perfecting his technique, diving deep into DJing and music production whenever he had the opportunity. When his father downloaded a bunch of DJ sets for him, he discovered that his favorite genres were Techno and House. This eventually led to his first performance on stage at age seven on New Year’s Eve in 2012. And even though it was his first time navigating a CDJ-2000 Nexus, he played it like a pro.
The young artist mentioned that the person who inspired him to pursue his passion for was the Dutch DJ Armin Van Buuren. When asked what it was like to have a picture with him, Federico got reminiscent. “It was incredible because I think that everything I’m doing right now started because I was following him and just being a big fan of Armin… I will say one of the best moments of my life.”

Another photo that can be seen on his Instagram account was with artist in the studio. “We were working on a couple of songs together, and I want to say that you will hear something… But, unfortunately, we still don’t have a name for that track.”
In January 2019, he released his first autobiographical book, ‘’ABBI FEDE,” in Italy. Four months later, he released his first single, ‘’LOCO,” with Armada, breaking into the top 20 ‘’GREAT BRITAIN NEW CHARTS,” and was played by David Guetta. He accomplished all of this while balancing his profession, school, and being a teenager.
Federico smoothly answered all five of our crazy questions, most of which we can relate to on a higher level. For example, according to him, is essential because it’s our universal language. And when asked how he felt about virtual events in these times, he honestly said, “virtual events will never be something as real events.” And I guess a lot of us would agree.
