Giacomo Dati aka Niva , is a Tuscan producer. He gets closer to the music when was just a child thanks to his mother who was a pianist. Soon he walks out on the piano and devotes himself to the console. At the end of the 90′s he functions as DjResident at the historic club “LaBussola” – famous for hosting all along the most popular Italian artists – and as Specialguest in several well-known Italian clubs.
Because of his passion for the music, he leaves classical studies and goes in for the recording technique study.
