DUSTY KID (aka Paolo Alberto Lodde) started to manipulate synthesizers, samplers and sequencers from an early age, and soon developed an ardor for arranging and producing his own compositions. He released his first single I Found A Reason at 19 on the English label Lowered Recordings, and went on to produce various singles and remixes for Mutiny UK, Robbie Rivera and Trinity Hi-Fi. The first official single under the aegis of the pseudonym Dusty Kid was The Summer of Love.
During 2004, Dusty Kid creates the project Duoteque with DJ Andrea Ferlin and releases numerous EPs on Boxer Recordings. Those tracks were immediately succesfull and included in the sets of some of the most important names, such as Richie Hawtin, Tiefschwarz, Ricardo Villalobos, Domenic Eulberg, Sven Vath and Magda.
After the Duoteque experience Paolo decides to take his own way and to release his own productions as Dusty Kid. His first release was the New Ordinament EP on Motivo, followed by a second EP in 2007. 2007 is also the year of various releases as Dusty Kid on labels such as Kling Klong Signal '63 EP, Systematic Tsunamy/ Milk, Boxer Recordings Anatome Vol.1 EP and Southern Fried Records The Cat/ The Kitten, all hugely supported by DJ's all over the world and still doing damage on dancefloors and in the charts, as well as getting amazing reviews from press.
While producing tracks for his debut album and showing up at various gigs around the world, Paolo has in the mean time placed some more tracks due for release prior to the end of the year as well as delivered some amazing remixes for the like of Josh Gabriel and The Droyds (the latter for #1 dance Italian label Rebirth), Disco Lies for Moby, and the latest one for queen of pop Robyn's last single Be Mine.
Lemur's now part of Dusty Kid's electronic armada, helping him to set crowds on fire around the world.
