Paolo Alberto Lodde was born in the beautiful island of Sardinia. As a new “enfant prodige”, he immediately showed his natural attitude for the variegated “music world”. At four years old, he already decided to become a musician. At ten years old, after just one year of private lessons of the basic notions of the piano and violin, he was admitted directly to the 6th year of the piano course in the conservatory of his native city. But he never liked music to be a matter of duty, realizing that playing other people’s music was not for him.
His tasks moved gradually from the austere classical world to the electronic system, free from binds and traditional old-fashion diktats. So He started to manipulate synthesizers, samplers and sequencers,; he realised that one passion was growing and growing: the ardour for arranging and producing his own compositions. He released his first single “I Found A Reason” at 18 on the English label Lowered Recordings, and then he produced 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 “The Summer of Love” back in 2003.
During 2004, Dusty Kid created the project Duoteque with DJ Andrea Ferlin and they released some EPs on Boxer Recordings, and a year later he started making numerous EPs on a different label such as Southern Fried, Boxer Recordings, Systematic and many more.. Getting the attention of some of the most important DJs and band that immediately found in his music something unique and very musical. This lead him to be commissioned to remix many artists such as Moby, Armand Van Helden, Robyn, Bookashade and the legendary Pet Shop Boys.
His Music cannot fit into any genre or label if not Dusty Kid’s one, ranging from hard techno to fold and pop, from psychedelic moments to cinematic soundtrack atmosphere.
In 2013, he decided to publish his third album for free download to show his gratitude to his followers that supported him over his 10 year career.
‘Not So Green Fields’, the new album from Paolo Lodde aka Dusty Kid. (4th studio album) was released in 2015 to worldwide critical acclaim.
A fantastical cinematic journey through a sonic landscape of bizarre political tribal, Jarre-esque desperation and desolation. Contrasted with wild emotive, magical and euphoric sounds. Darkness and light shimmer, boil, and overflow as the listener is taken track by track on a ride around Lodde’s prized homeland, the Italian island of Sardinia.
