Born the son of a violinist 1971 as an italian in Switzerland, massivan enjoyed a classical education, starting to play the violin by the age of six.
Having played violin for eight years, the instrument became boring and he started studying drums. This finally brought him to the American Institute of Music of Vienna in 1993. Unfortunately he could not complete the conservatory studies and had to reconsider his musical carrer. That's when he came in touch with audio-engineering and later dj'ing.
