How far Layton’s come is magnified when you consider it wasn’t so long ago he found himself at Pacha NYC as a 19-year-old witnessing the legendary Danny Tenaglia play. It was this formative experience that crystallized his desire to DJ before he’d make his mark in the ensuring years as a resident at Output nightclub.
These nascent experiences take on greater meaning when you consider
Giordani would collaborate with Tenaglia just a matter of months after his album release, dropping the standout ‘Live Again’.
The highlights haven’t stopped in 2018. A three-way collaboration with Beyer and Chicago legend Green Velvet titled ‘Space Date’ marked the summer. Likewise, he was in hot demand for his DJing skills, playing the main stage of Drumcode Festival, Gashouder for Awakenings x Adam Beyer presents Drumcode, Melt! Festival, Warehouse Project, Resistance Ibiza and Drumcode Halloween at Tobacco Dock, among others.
He rounded out 2018 with the release of ‘Phase II’, a stellar solo EP on Drumcode, featuring tracks that have soundtracked the year, from Berghain to Amsterdam’s thunderous rave dome, the Gashouder.
