Swiss-born Italian producer/DJ Mastrovita found his passion in DJing and producing when he was younger and his older brother showed him how to scratch a capellas over hip-hop beats; now, Mastrovita works closely with internationals labels such as Spinnin’ Records, Armada, Ultra and Kontor Records and keeps going from strength to strength in his music career.
An incisive moment in Mastrovita’s career was in February last year when he released his track ‘Invsbl Dreams’ and it was snapped by Spinnin’ records. The track then climbed to 6th place in the Beatport Charts and since then Mastrovita has been garnering more and more support from internationally-acclaimed Dj’s such as Lost Frequencies, Sander van Doorn, Martin Garrix, Don Diablo, Tiesto, Zonderling, Yves V, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and many more.
