At the age of 14 I switched to guitar, playing in some rock and metal bands and doing my first live concerts here and there in Italy.
In 2004 I fell in love with electronic music and started my first one-man-band project: “Schatten”, already with that touch of the ’80s.
In the summer of 2011 I changed the moniker “Schatten” in my real name, Vincenzo Salvia, and I started working also for some TV commercials (Mediaset) and soundtracks.
The breakthrough was summer 2012, when I released “Voyage“, my first real synthwave album, and I officially entered the scene.
I also founded Sunlover Records (an indipendent label) with some of my friends, so maybe you can show us some love!
In 2017 I moved to Milan and started my live acts here in Italy and around Europe (Berlin, London...)
2018 is the year of Stranger Things 3: I've been featured in the first episode with my track "Italian Gigolo".
But now… The road is going to be long, so… turn on Spotify and good travel!
