BEST OF 2019 Interview with Sergio Trillini

Sergio Trillini was born in Zurich. Early in his life the young DJ and producer discovered his passion for electronic music. He was totally fascinated by the art of Djing and the possibility to produce his own songs. So he dedicated himself to this activity – with success! Bookings in the most prestigious clubs of Switzerland followed, and the young man from Zurich with Italian roots established himself quite fast in the scene. Today his music could be defined being melodic, electronic as well as innovative. This also shows on his own productions. Besides numerous chart placements on „Beatport“, he shortly entered into the viral TOP 50 weekly charts on « Spotify » with his single « Close to me ». His special skill to incorporate various elements out of different styles into one song explains why his songs are played regularly by international top-acts like Lost Frequencies, Don Diabolo and Sam Feldt.

Dimitris: Your biggest music career achievements in 2019:
Sergio Trillini: I was able to release a total of 4 songs this year. The single single “Made of Steel” made it to numerous CD-compilations and the single "Rewind" got over 100,000 views on Yutube and was supported by Don Diablo. My last single "Golden Kiss" entered into the Beatport Dance Charts and was added into the official "Best new Dance October" compilation of Beatport. It was my strongest release-year so far.
