Felix Ricci aka DJ Ritchie is a music producer and soundengineer, active since 2 decades in the italian andinternational scene.Formerly a guitarist in some prog-rock bands of his country,he was more interested in arrangement and recording, thanin his instrument; he saw the birth of the MIDI technology,and audio HDD recording, which he totally masters, as wellas the sound design and synthesis. So he started his ownstudio in the early 90s recording commercials, doingproduction for independent artists, and composingsoundtracks.In 1993 Felix established the renown "Circe Digital Studio" inSabaudia (Italy), in partnership with his long-term coworkerand friend Fabio Verardo, a talented sound engineer andmusician. T he duo worked, and still works, with a hugenumber of local and foreign productions dealing with almostall kinds of music, from rock to rap, to R&B, punk, new metal,crossover, dance, classical, fusion, blues, mainstream pop,experimental, electronica... so that they can't really counthow many records they did in their career.In 1995 Felix and Fabio entered the business of dancemusic, and they did it by the main gateway: their debut single"Jaya - Falling in love" was a chart topper that year, and it'sstill today a must-have record for all the djs playing the"euro-beat". It's considered a cult track.In 1999-2000, when the major record companies started toliterally eat the dance market leaving less space to theindependents, they turned their interest towards housemusic, thanks to the encounter with the house queen JoyMalcolm (now lead female vocalist for Moby).Felix and Fabio kept producing house tracks together, andrunning their recording studio, until circa 2007-2008 whenthey decided to have their own individual productionprojects, but still collaborating when needed.T hey work with almost all the best known vocalists in theinternational house scene, and their productions arereleased by record companies all over the world, although in2012 they are launching their own labels.T he recording studio is now called "Verardo & RicciProductions" and since Fabio developed his stunning abilityfor mastering, they're improving the studio equipment withgreat outboard. In the meanwhile, Felix is mostly working at 2major projects. One is ISAVIS, the so-called "Lady ofsynthesizers", a gifted electronica composer and performer,now at her 3rd album. T he other one is LADYMARYSOUND,a house music production team and now a record label.LadyMarySound's team is no other than IsaVis at her dance alter-ego, and Felix himself.T he team debuted in 2010 in the US with the track "T heSound Revolution" on Deeper Level Music (Washington,DC), and in 2012, riding the huge airplay of the newreleases "WHO IS" and "DISCOLADY", Isa and Felixestablished the LADYMARYSOUND INT ERNAT IONAL digitallabel, strong of worldwide distribution provided by SoulshiftMusic.T he LADYMARYSOUND team works in IsaVis'personal studio, the SPACE STAT ION, and finalizes thetracks at Verardo & Ricci's mastering room. Felix is also oneof the most accurate and professional vocal editors in theinternational scene, being capable of an ear accuracy ofless than 4 cents of a halftone (and improving). Aware ornot, most house divas have been fixed...
