Exclusive Interview: Luna Graziano all about music

Growing up on an eclectic diet of rock and 70's disco music provided by her parents record collection, Luna Graziano is hard to pin down musically. Inspired by her family's love to music (her grandmother was a musician too), Luna Graziano took up the piano at the age of 6. It was only a few year later that Luna discovered late night parties and the attractive rhythms of techno music. Luna promptly sold her piano and purchased record decks and began performing at local house parties, besaments and abandoned warehouse. Now a regular fixture of Italy's nightlife, club scene Luna has shared with sucj well-known international DJs and she began performing as special guest in some of the most fomous clubs in Italy and all over the world. 

2016 looks to be a busy year for Luna Graziano as she begins her first Asia tour and continues to work on making more music. 

Djanemag: Luna Graziano is you real name, isn't it? A lot of Djanes use nicknames! Why did you deside to use your real name becoming a Dj, but not a nickname? 

Luna Graziano: yes, Luna Graziano is my real name. I decided to use it for a simple reason: I love my first name "LUNA", My dad gave it to me and i think it's enough "particular" to use it for an artistic job like djing is. 

Djanemag: Being a female DJs, how it looks like? 

Luna Graziano: being a female dj is cool :) you can show to the world that music is not only a men affair. 

Djanemag: What challenges have you faced being a female DJ and how did you overcome them? 

Luna Graziano: the biggest challenge was make people understan that even we are women (why not, pretty women) we can play good music and we can do our work like men. It's not all about big tits or beautiful's all about music! At the beginning of my career clubs used to call me but they didn't even know what style of music I play. Over time people started to know me for the music i play, and this is the most important thing for me. 

Djanemag: Could you describe your feelings when you play music? 

Luna Graziano: It's not easy to describe but i will try. I feel like a super hero when he saves the world from death. :) music can save body and soul sometimes. 

Djanemag: What’s the most difficult thing about your job and what is the most enjoyable? 

Luna Graziano: the most difficult thing is keep your personality and not be affected by what music business wants. A dj has to have a own soul to be the different. the most enjoyable thing is travel a lot and meet different people all the times. 

Djanemag: What style of music do you play? What style of music do you listen at home? 

Luna Graziano: I play tech house music, but at home I usually listen other kinds of music …something more relaxing like rnb or chillout. I need relax when I'm at home ! :)

Djanemag: What are your biggest sources of inspiration when you are mixing or producing music? 

Luna Graziano: people is my biggest source when I play in a club. I always look at the dancefloor to understand how to build a good relationship with them. When I produce my source depends on my mood of the day.

Djanemag: Do you have any exclusive news for readers at this moment you wanna share?

Luna Graziano: I'm thinking to star play and produce hip hop music too. I'd like to enlarge my mind and my work….
