Prezioso, founded in 1999, comprises Andrea Prezioso and Giorgio Prezioso, an Italo-dance duo with successful hits in Italy, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The brothers have made best-selling records as solo musicians and members of Italo house ensembles. Before 1999 and beginning in 1993, Andrea and Giorgio Prezioso were known as the duo Prezioso. When Giorgio Prezioso took a hiatus in 2007 to focus on his project, Giorgio Prezioso & Libex (with DJ Libex), Prezioso & Marvin came to be. However, Giorgio rejoined the group in 2009. They are now renowned as part of the Prezioso & Marvin trio, featuring singer Alessandro Moschini, nicknamed “Marvin” after boxer Marvin Hagler.
Giorgio Prezioso has been a radio deejay and moderator at “Deejay Time” since 1991, when it was one of Italy’s most prominent radio broadcasting stations. Previously, he worked as a deejay at the club “Veleno,” where he collaborated with Italy’s most well-known rapper, Lorenzo Cherubini, alias Jovanotti. He shares his fascination with music with his older brother Andrea and has contributed to the Eurodance movement with a few tracks. Prezioso is most known for his multi-award-winning single “Thunder,” which has received over 250 million live streams. He has also recorded hit singles such as “Tell Me Why,” “Let Me Stay,” and “The Riddle.”

Q: Before we dig in, what’s next for you?
I’m just in the midst of a long tour around Italy and Europe, keeping up with the DJ Time dates and preparing the next releases!
Q: What does music mean to you?
Music, for me, is a primary need to live, as it is oxygen or water. It’s my passion and, luckily, also my job!
Q: Is there a song that makes you emotional?
I get something caught in my eye when I listen to “Bad Memories” by Meduza.
Q: How important are lyrics?
In Edm, lyrics are the last thing that will reach the listener; I think of it as a final but crucial touch. Yes, a song has to sound catchy, bouncy, and easy to dance on, but if you manage to say something more, that’s the most excellent satisfaction. So I do indeed think it is an essential part of the song.
Q: Which musical era would you visit if you could travel back in time?
I’d love to surf back in time to the New wave 80s (to be able to jam with young Depeche Mode , Heven17, Human League)
Q: Who was your role model while growing up?
As a turntabelist DJ Cash Money and DJ Jazzy Jeff. As a producer Avicii.
Q: What makes you feel unstoppable?
Every morning I wake up and feel lucky cause I got to work with what I love the most.
Q: What would be on the gag reel of your life?
While playing on one of my set in Milan I turned back, and there was Mike Tyson wachin me; for a split second, I thought of stopping out of respect and greet him, but then I thought maybe to stop playing was even worse. My brain froze for a while, then I continued and enjoyed the eve. I still laugh at that moment; I honestly had a bug in my system.
Q: How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie roll pop?
I don’t eat candies.
Q: Would you travel to space?
Yes, would like to do it with my good friend DJs from Mars; nonneed to specify where to!
