Francesco Baudazzi, aka Obtane, QuitQuiteQuick and Sammy Bellafonte was born 27 years ago in La Spezia, a city of North Italy. When his ears began to capture audio signals, he followed the latest italodisco breaths and early Chicago house like a dog follows its tail, discovering old jewels like Kraftwerk, Jean-Michel Jarre and Tangerine Dream discographies.
Then the start of djing, in 1994, playing minimal and dub techno like Basic Channel and Chain Reaction, us and swedish techno (first of all Robert Hood, Jeff Mills, Cari Lekebusch, Adam Beyer and Thomas Krome) and dark electro (from Drexciya, Mr. Velcro Fastener, Underground Resistance to italian pioneers of Nature Records). At the end of 2000, he had a smooth musical transition, turning so his raw techno concept in the upcoming new school of minimalism, with heavy support of Perlon and M_nus.
At the end of 2005, he is co-founder, with the djs/producers Davide Calì and Max Guerrero, of the label Equilibria Records. In december 2006 he had his debut as producer on Equilibria with the "Cosmic Crossdresser" release, featuring also two reinterpretations of the M_nus artists Tractile and getting a positive feedback from the epic german magazine De:Bug. In January 2008, he founds his own label, Zooloft, with his partner Enrico Viti, releasing glitch, bleep and weird minimal on digital format and 10" limited edition vinyls.
