Fabio is also very familiar with the London DJ circuit having played in all the major clubs (Fabric, Building Six, XOYO, KOKO, SeOne).

Since being there he has written all the Logic level Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced courses as well as the Roland Aira Academy course which is issued all over Europe. Fabio's personal focus is now on making underground house music and techno but he still mixes and masters a wide variety of music including Hip-Hop, Pop and World music. More recently he has worked with Dyme (Warner), A-Minor (Ministry of Sound) and Tay Salem (Red Bull Music).
