Franco Meraldi


Mixit Music Website

Franco Meraldi (real name) was born in 1965 in Italy but lives in Holland.
He started as a DJ on several illegal radiostations and later made mixes (for Radio Stad Den Haag) and jingles (Locatel, Sky Den Haag, Rainbow, Starlight).
Behind the sceens he has been busy with clubmixes, theatermixes and fashionshow sequences.
Through his italian contacts he promoted the Italo-disco  (Doctors Cat, Martinelli, DF&Pam, Sun La Shan, enz.). The Shaekemix was born from these contacts. Due to copyright restrictions (like most club mixes at the time ) this mix was published through the importchannels on a poor blue and yellow striped label.
The Mixit Music Studio has been mostly mixing for the dance-world. One of its productions is a rare Theatermix, which mixes House and Dance tracks with Rock and even Classical music.

Franco Dj-ed in many dutch disco's like Locomotion, Marathon, J&S, Confetti, Joy, Roxy, Marcanti, Corniche….. At the moment he's composing music to develop a new Dance/House style and is looking for artists and a producer.
Teaching a uniek heavy DJ-course is one of his main jobs. A combination of profound theory and demanding practice makes it the first serious course. It takes about two years to master the skills, so you'll have to persist.
