After putting his musical stamp as an electronic musical talent on the grounds of China, CARTA is now set on taking over the world. As the first Chinese signed DJ and producer at Spinnin’ Records and the first ever Chinese DJ entering DJ Mag Top 100, he proves to possess the needed skills to pave his road to success.
CARTA was only 14 years old when he laid hands on his first controller, a moment which would unknowingly lay the foundations for his future in music. Born of Italian and Chinese ethnicity in Hong Kong and raised in Shanghai, CARTA enriched himself by adopting a groovier, garage infused musical signature during his years spent in the UK studying. When he returned to Shanghai in 2014, CARTA established himself as a solid force in the electronic music and nightlife scene in just a year’s time. He garnered both the support of all the local DJs and captivated fans young and seasoned with his high-energy live performances.
CARTA has increased his musical influences through residencies in China’s top nightclubs and features in almost all large venues in Shanghai, to kicking off one of the largest EDM festivals in China at Budweiser’s Storm Festival in 2015, with industry-leading international acts. In 2016, the road to success became even more solid when it was announced that CARTA not only would be performing on the mainstage of Electric Jungle Music Festival in Southern China but also produce the Chinese-influenced festival anthem “Aranya”.
Building off of his momentum in China, CARTA went global in 2017 and continued working and performing with major international artists at festivals like Tomorrowland in Belgium, Ultra Music Festival stages in China, Singapore, Bali, and Hong Kong, and Amsterdam Dance Event in Amsterdam. Through his weekly radio show with Hit FM Radio, China’s largest foreign language radio station, CARTA extends his influences to an audience of over 8 million listeners by educating them on electronic music and providing a platform for other electronic artists to break into the Chinese market. Recognizing his potential and talent, Tag Heuer invited CARTA to be Friend of the Brand and requested his music to be used for their Greater China promotional videos.
CARTA is known for his highly energetic presence as well as his passion to grow in his ever- evolving sound. Always open for every positive influence, he strives to key up his skills and musical knowledge where possible. Being named China’s first DJ to enter DJ Mag’s Top 100 and Asia’s 2017 No. 1 DJ is just the beginning. With new music and projects in the works, CARTA is an artist to watch as we’re about to hear much more from this next generation DJ and producer!
