BIO:

In 1987, Raffaele Attanasio was born with music in his blood—thanks to his father, a musician, he began taking piano lessons from an early age.  At the age of 12, he took his first steps in the world of djing, strongly influenced by rap, hip-hop and the g-funk culture. Five years later, he released his first production: a style characterized by the fusion of techno, electronic and classic-contemporary influences. In 2007, he completed his studies and obtained a diploma in piano.  Raffaele is a pianist, arranger and producer. His label, Letters from Jerusalem, was then released obtaining a collaboration with Douglas J. McCharty (Leader of the glorious band "The Nitzer Ebb"). Under his alias, X-501, he has released several productions on Buenos Aires based label, Krill Music. In 2014, he succeeded in making one of his greatest artist dreams come true: dueting in a Jam live \ b2b with Jeff Mills in Naples, and then went on to play his glorious b2b with Octave One. Lately, he has been focusing on himself for the realization of the project called "L'estasi dell'Odio,” intended to be presented in live theatrical performances.  In the meantime, he co-founded "The Sacred Weapons," a band and group of artists, strongly influenced by the ‘70s psychedelic rock and electronic music of the ‘90s.  
 
Over the course of his career, Attanasio received the support of a large range of appreciated artists in the industry, including Len Faki, Luke Slater, Ben Sims, Kirk Degiorgio, Chris Liebing, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock, Juan Atkins, Derrick May, Oscar Mulero, Dustin Zahn and many others.
