A pair of siblings for whom crate digging has grown from a shared obsession to a family business, Gino and Federico Grasso hail from Bologna, Italy.
Inspired by and heavily involved in Italy’s disco and boogie explosion during the ’80s, the pair have traveled the globe searching for the perfect beat. While elder brother Gino DJs regularly and dabbles in production under the moniker “G&D Edits” alongside house producer Dino Angioletti, Federico prefers to concentrate his energies fully on crate digging, emerging occasionally to play very special sets for discerning, like-minded vinyl junkies.
Over the years, the Grasso Brothers have supplied rare records to disco DJ luminaries Dimitri From Paris and Sadar Bahar, among others, so the announcement of their first compilation album caused quite a stir among the record collecting cognoscenti.
Out now on BBE, We Know How to Boogie is an entertaining romp through the brothers’ expansive record collection, one obscure treat at a time.
