Plaza de Funk has been producing and DJing since 2001.After a few formative years spent dabbling with production and releasing records on labels such as Oxyd in his native country Italy, he moved to London in early 2004 and almost immediately got signed to West Records (best breakthrough label at Breakspoll 2005, and nominated as best label at Breakspoll 2006). The deal lead to the release of the Got The Funk Ep in 2005, which included a remix from Madox and was a massive hit, with support from all major players across the board.
After these two releases Plaza started working on a string of remixes all through 2006 and 2007, re-tweaking Dj Killer on Functional, Flore on IbreaksFunk, The Drum Monkeys on Westway, MI Loki on Tricksta, and doing a split remix Ep with the Groove Diggerz for Ape records.
His remix of The Drum Monkeys’ Batty Batucada made even Fatboy Slim take notice, so much that he called Westway personally to get his hands on a copy of the vinyl! While his remix of Dj Killer’s Acid – released on Functional – has recently been included by General Midi on the latest instalment of the much respected Y4K series on Distinctive.
In February 2008, Plaza De Funk was invited to play Breakspoll for the second time in a row and was nominated in two categories - best breakthrough dj and best breakthrough producer.
He won the award for Best Breakthrough Dj 2008. He is currently working on more originals and remixes and touring around the world. His latest track "Do it" has just been included in the Plump Dj's new mix cd for Global Underground, GU DJ vol.2!
