If any producer can be known as a wayfarer, then Knobs truly ecompasses this archetype. Having lived and travelled across Africa, Asia, North America, Australasia and Europe since his birth in Rome, his experiences are wide, varied and are now echoed through his musical production.

Since childhood he has had a strong passion and curiosity for a variety of musical genres. Growing up listening from Hip Hop to Grunge and Dub he later discovered electronic music through artists such as Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Daft Punk and The Prodigy whose sounds seduced him to indulge in the realm of electronic music. He discovered and fell in love with Techno after hearing Jeff Mills and Paco Osuna perform in 2008. Additionally inspired by the analogue sets at the raves in Rome, he began to experiment with his own creativity.

Knobs has a passion for acquiring inspiration from the sounds surrounding his life; stretching from different musical genres to all urban and natural soundscapes. His style in Techno is well known for its prominent drive and bass laced with fine cut rhythmics topped with dark, organic atmospheres evoking a primordial and mystical essence.

Thanks to his unique and diverse productions he has had the opportunity to perform to a wide variety of places from legendary clubs and festivals to small underground events throughout Germany, Sweden, Italy, Holland, USA, Switzerland, Lithuania, Mexico, Argentina, Norway, Hungary, Denmark, Malta, New Zealand and Australia. His music has been played and supported all over the world by a multitude of Djs spanning from emerging artists to the most prominent legends of Techno.

He has become, and remains, one of Nachtstrom Schallplatten’s prominent producers since 2010. Through this label he has released 3 „12“ Eps and his recent triple „12“ Lp. Throughout the years Knobs has also released many widely supported and played tracks that remain a prominent feature in many playlists. These include tracks such as „Like This“, „Reality“, „Apocalypto“ and many other of his originals and remixes.

With the recent founding of his label ‚Moth Records‘, Knobs is setting to set the world on fire with not only his own unmistakable and game-changing sounds, but also with releases from other upcoming artists.

And this is just the beginning.

Knobs is ready to take the world by storm all over again.
