Roberto De Carlo – sounds like an artist name – but it’s his real name. That there’s a real artist behind it answers his music. Born and raised in Switzerland, the Italian enriches the music scene as a brilliant DJ, producer and remixer on highest standard. He puts his whole temperament and deep passion in his music.
He was always fascinated by the club scene, because of his father who was the owner of the legendary nightclub “TIVOLINO” (Zurich) in the mid 80’s. Inspired by the combination of various electronic music styles and the soulful Disco-Funk of the 70’s and 80’s, Roberto De Carlo started his DJ career already at the young age of sixteen.
Thanks to these important musical influences Roberto De Carlo developed stylish House and Nu-Disco DJ-sets. Soon he has showcased his talent in some of the most vibrating Swiss venues such as Kaufleuten (Zurich), Supermarket (Zurich), Atlantis (Basel) or the Deep Club (Geneva). Meanwhile he’s an internationally in demand artist, who plays regularly in countries like Russia, Ukraine, Lithuania, Greece, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Austria and Italy or at the popular WMC in Miami Beach.
In his recording studio – the RDC Studio – Roberto De Carlo started to produce his own music in 2000. Highest quality is the most important thing for him, something that nowadays unfortunately got lost in many of the fast living productions. He loves to mix the best vintage analog gear with the latest digital equipment. With synthesizers of the 70’s and 80’s, which he collected all over the world, Roberto De Carlo gives its sound the authentic 80’s style – just like the motto: “from soulful to disco – best analog sounds meets digital era!“.
His ambition was shortly rewarded with numerous releases on the most renowned House Label Purple Music and one of the most prestigious labels of the soulful and deep House scene GOGO Music. With his two most successful hit singles ”You Are The One For Me” on Purple Music and “Soulful Things“ on GOGO Music, he attracted worldwide attention. His excellent reputation brought him remix requests of the most well known labels of the house scene, like Duffnote (UK), Zoo Groove Stereo (UK), Shifted Music (USA) and many others. Appearances on CD Compilations such as “Masterclass Vol. 2“ mixed by the US legend Tony Humphries on mn2s Records (UK), “Connected“ mixed by Jay-J on Defected (UK), the “Chillout Session Vol. 10“ for Ministry of Sound, Hed Kandi “Disco Heaven“, just to mention a few, confirm his international success and enrich his discography.

He appreciates to work with notable artists such as Ralf GUM, Miguel Migs, Knee Deep, Jay-J, Richard Earnshaw, Simon Grey and Cool Million, in which also contributes renowned soulful voices like Inaya Day, Sharlene Hector, Joshua, Colin Corvez and Dyanna Fearon.
Recordings with musicians like Simon Grey, Faze Action or Opolopo gave his sound a new direction. With “Electric Soul Power“ and “You’re The One For Me“ on Purple Music, as well as his own Remix for Jay-J “Reforminator“ on Shifted Music, Roberto De Carlo pointed to a new development towards Nu Disco.
His next House Single “Roberto De Carlo featuring Dyanna Fearon – Searching“ will be his first release that he officially presents in his own music online shop. But not enough, soon he will also launch his new Nu Disco production “Stereophonic“.
