Maurice Giovannini provides mix featuring 100% of his productions
Maurice Giovannini's origins trace back to Trois Rivieres in Quebec, where he drew his name from the flowing waters of the River Saint-Maurice. However, his family relocated to the charming Italian town of Reggio Emilia within a year of his birth. It was at the tender age of 13 that his parents bestowed upon him his first console, sparking an enduring passion for electronic music. As he adeptly navigated the realm of CDJs and Turntables, he graced stages across the nation with his mixing prowess.
Transitioning from the art of mixing to the craft of creation, Maurice delved into producing his own original tracks. His artistic offerings found a place alongside celebrated names such as Nu Zau, Plusulaar, Gorbani, Rush Arp, Christian Farias, Sublee, Luca M, Massimo Cassini, and a host of other talents. His sonic creations found a home on esteemed labels including Wavetech Limited, Sakadat, Resonanz, Sleep is Commercial, Ensis Black, Body Parts, Medicine Records, and more.
Maurice's sonic signature paints a vivid tapestry of hues and shadows, epitomising the essence of minimal-experimental music. As time unfolds, his distinctive sound promises to permeate the electronic music industry, leaving an indelible mark.
Maurice recently provided a mix for us (which you can listen to here and comprises 100% of his own tunes) and below and also provided a Nightlife Guide to his adopted town of Montreal, which you can check out below…
“Beyond its bilingualism, French colonial architecture, and unique elements of Québécois culture, one characteristic that makes Montreal a popular destination for Canadians and international visitors alike is the city’s infamous party scene. Here are some of the best areas to stay for exploring the nightlife in Montreal”.
“There are many spot in Montreal to visit! My favourite are…”
La Rama Record Shop
“The Rama Record Store located in Montreal is a new and used music vinyl store where you can find a wide assortment of electronic music of all types. I love this place!”
Bleury bar a vinyle
“The Bleury is a classic bar coffee shop where you can listen to music and drink a coffee at the same time. It can also be transformed into a little pub club when the party is on!”
“Converted from an old underground swimming pool and converted into a club, the Pelicano is one of the most famous if you want to taste cocktails and savour Canadian cuisine and DJs. There is also a happy hour, which makes the Pelicano club an excellent destination for tourists looking for a quiet corner to stay when listening to good music.”
Le Salon Daome
“Since moving to its current address in early 2018, this club’s been looked to for a more laidback nightclub experience for over a decade—that is, until the party picks up in the early morning. Currently one of best places to enjoy music from quality DJs, the styles spun here range widely, but each make the most of the top-notch sound system they’re using.”
“Praised by international DJs for its impeccable sound system and legendary booth, Stereo keeps house and techno beats pumping into the late-night hours, long past last call elsewhere—just ask folks who dance the night away until the sun comes up here. With soundproof walls and a dance floor reinforced with springs and shock absorbers, their after-hours nightclub is fully equipped for hardcore all-nighters that flock in from all corners of the city.”
“Montreal natives know how to party – and how to appreciate the fleeting months of warmth they experience every calendar year – by taking advantage of their lakefront beaches. That’s where Beachclub comes in. The sprawling 5,000 capacity outdoor venue, situated on the sandy shores of Pointe-Calumet, is open from May to September. The club has a distinctly Balearic vibe with cabanas and swimwear-clad attendees. Fittingly, Beachclub’s Ibiza festival is a popular attraction.”
