Born in June 26, 1974, in Italy, Andrea Doria (real name Marco Capelli), composer and sound designer, has a long history in the music industry, started at the age of 16 when he began to develop an insane passion for computers and programming. At the arrival of the first 8/16bit computer he started earning a living composing soundtracks for videogames for some Italian software companies (but not only), simply using the synth processors (SID/Commodore64) and language machine.
Since then Andrea’s artistic knowledge developed with a powerful influence of some eclectic artists from the seventies like Klaus Schulze, Richard Wahnfried, Chris and Cosey, Crash Course in Science and Edgar Frose. In the 90s he was completely blown away by the house scene and decided that DJing was going to become an important part of his career. He was fascinated by the way these “DJs alchemists” used to mix sounds and different cultures at the same time and created such a big interest in the booming Dance scene. Nowdays, Andrea uses the same philosophy to compose his Game and Movie scores, mixing together orchestral textures and electronic.
In the 2001, thanks to a long term collaboration with his friend Dino Lenny, Andrea participates to a long list of great productions including “I Feel Stereo”, co-signed with Prince, which has also been licensed to Deep Dish’s Yoshitoshi label and Incentive in the UK. Then in the 2002 starts, always with Dino, the Wu Tang Clan collaboration in Barbed Wire, and remixes for Inxs, Rob Dougan, Klea, Planet Funk, Art of Trance etc.
Andrea and Dino has both enjoyed three successive Essential New Tunes from Pete Tong at Radio One respectively with Andrea Doria Bucci Bag and Change The World which will become a highly talked about collaboration with ex Housemartins singer Paul Heaton from The Beautiful South.
In the 2006/2008 Andrea release a series of very popular mixes and remixes like the hit single Lxr Vs. Andrea Doria – Freak Me, and the follow up Beauty Of Silence, both signed on BlueFin.
Now after some years off the scene spent to find his new self, he is back and reload…
