Italian native and musically born in the eighties, Chicco Secci started his career as a music producer in the biggest network called Radio DeeJay in Milan.
After touring all the best clubs in the country, Chicco moved to Ibiza, where he had a residency for five years at club KU (today Privilege), a club considered to be the largest venue in Europe at that time.
Because of the time length of that residency, Chicco got much more exposure, earning him lots of Dj gigs all over Europe.
Ibiza is known as a muse and enchanting place, which inspires Chicco to produce the dreamy music he is known for. As a result, his very first release, Whip Of The Rhythm, was a favorite of the late eighties for many pioneers of that time, such as Pete Tong and Sasha.
Other producers have made lots of remakes and covers since that original release.
Chicco’s next big step was moving to Miami to expand the new genre of house music in America, which at the time was mostly dominated by hip hop and R&B.
In South Beach, he quickly became one of the top Dj’s, playing at the best venues the city had to offer. He began collaborating with DJ/Producers such as George Acosta Victor Imbres and Robbie Rivera.
Produced tracks such as Memories and Lets Get Together gave Chicco a household name amongst DJ’s around the world. He even became a role model for upcoming dj’s as they just entered the music scene during that time.
In fact, He was the first Dj to play Benassi’s track, Satisfaction, in America. Chicco’s legendary status is kept on till this day where he has residencies and headlines at all the best clubs in Miami Beach such as Amnesia, Living Room, Mynt, Set, The Wall, Space and Mansion.
Chicco has found himself on the flyers with established names that include Tiesto, Paul van Dyk, Sasha, Roger Sanchez, Deadmau5, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Steve Angello, Fedde Le Grand, Ferry Corsten, Laidback Luke, and many more.
In early June 2010, Tarantella by Chicco Secci hit the number one position in the official U.K. Buzz Club Chart, and was released by all the major labels all over the globe, Warner Bros, Ultra, Armada, Kontor etc.
Tarantella was proclaimed as the Anthem of summer 2010 in Europe, and it was presented on 43 different music compilations.
It was also featured in Pete Tong’s radio show, BBC Radio One, as “Essential New Tune”.
In 2011, a new release “Fly With You” on Magnificent Records, got worldwide recognition and support from Avicii, and Matt Darey. The release included remixes by Benny Benassi and Alex Gaudino.
His track with Dave Sol, “The Mask”, was again defined by Tong as an Ibiza’s summer 2011 smash hit.
Until this day, Chicco continues to deliver great sounds and piano melodies in each and every one of his productions, getting thumbs up from the entire house music industry.
