Gelivan has built himself musically by making mixes since 2002. In 2019 the series/podcast Eclectic Soul celebrates its tenth anniversary and more than 50 episodes of carefully selected music. The Eclectic Soul vibe influences the lives of an ever-growing number of people around the globe that Gelivan is about to meet in the coming months while organizing various events.
A sporadic composer since 2010, he self-releases his first album (mouvement du sentiment) in January 2017, which is followed by a 4-track EP in October of the same year ('Rodalquilar Sessions' with Belgian rapper Pierre Citron, on the new Swiss label Diffract Records) .
Strongly influenced by Ninja Tune and the album 'Black Sands' by Bonobo, his eclectic and soulful DJ sets with subtle grooves continue to seduce listeners who cross his path. It is obviously natural that we will feel the effect of the famous London-based label in the sound signature of his compositions (listen to Walk Around, Ralentir or Karma Cool).
We also note the impact of cinema in the music of this artist born in Southern Italy in 1987. Richard Linklater is his favorite director, he never stops to pay tribute in his creations by including interview bits or dialogues from the movies.
Since the end of 2018, music creation has been a constant feature in the daily life of Gelivan, who's about to release several projects in 2019 with many collaborations.
