Carlo Gambino should need no introduction to this industry we all love, he has been DJ’ing longer than we care to remember and has played at many of the UK’s biggest and best loved club nights and beyond. Collecting Vinyl from the age of 11, Carlo was 16 when his love of all things ‘House’ began. Spending his weekends on the dance floor as a regular clubber became a huge part of his life, but soon, simply just dancing to the music wasn’t enough. It became very clear from an early age that music would play a major role in Carlo's life; for over 30 years his father has worked in the music industry, touring with artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Take That and Rod Stewart, so it came as no surprise that he was destined to follow a similar path.
With over 20 years in the industry so far, Carlo's life into the world of production started way back in 2005 with his first release on New York label, Blunted Funk; under the Hoodlums; guise with fellow Leeds dj/producer Euan Mitchell. A remix then followed on Slovenian label 'Papstec', and then a full EP on Polish label 'Look Ahead'. After several other releases it wasn’t until 2010 that was the start of something special. Carlo got the break he needed signing a 3 track EP for the mighty ‘3am Recordings’.
Since that first signing for the label, Carlo has gone onto release several more tracks for 3am including the labels 50th anniversary release. Several strong releases have followed since the start of 2010, which have led to a rapid increase in demand for Carlo's original and remix work globally. So far into 2012/13, Carlo has gone onto release on labels such as Bullet:dodge, Freche Fruchte, Click Therapy, Svogue Muziq, Gooseneck Records, Area38, Evasive, Electronique and label of the moment,'Hot Waves'. This signing to Jamie Jones label is an even bigger step to push Carlo in the right direction.
In 2011 Carlo launched his very own digital imprint, 'Midnight Social Recordings'. With Artists such as Al Bradley, Joe Morris, Denney, Tim Weeks, Luke Gibson, Adam Collins, Didier Morris to name but a few already released on the label, it’s going from strength to strength and gaining recognition in all the right places. The label has seen support from the likes of Terry Francis, Moodymanc, Tyler Stadius, Justin Harris, Inland Knights, Audiojack, Gareth Whitehead, Murray Richardson, Carlos Sanchez, Rob Mello.
