In the beginning of the eighties deejay Michael (1966) was infected by the disco virus. All his pocket money went directly to record stores. Inspired by the delights of the two Dutch mix heroes Ben Liebrand and Peter Slaghuis, he taught himself to mix. At a radio station in Delft called “Eldorado” he had his first mix program and at discotheque “Soos Dinguss”, in Delft as well, he was the saturday night resident DJ for years. More and more deejay Michael specialized in the genre Italo Disco. He ended up in a circle of very fanatical collectors and met Italo artists increasingly.
THE BOOK: 'MAD ABOUT ITALO'
