We like to support up and coming DJs and producers whenever we can. Italian DJ Pin (Giancarlo Di Chiara) sent us this mix last week and we’ve had it playing regularly since. A nice mix of smooth minimal and harshness with occasional forays into a more tech house sound.
If you are a quality DJ and would like your work exposed to our readership then email us your best techno or minimal mix and we will have a listen.

DJ Pin Bio:
Giancarlo Di Chiara aka DJ Pin was born in Avellino in 1982. His interest for clubs started at an early age: in fact he started to listen to dance music and mix cds with his computer at the age of 12, and at the age of 17 he started to visit most of the best italian house music clubs. He managed to buy a pair of turntables at the age of 20 and, some moths later, he partecipated to a DJ Competitions organized by a famous italian radio station (Radio Ibiza).
The year after, in 2003, he started to play tech-house music in some clubs: only events with top international Djs, including Tony Humphries, Justin Berkmann, Marshall Jefferson, Alex Natale, Eddy Kruger, Lady Babayaga, Ivan Iacobucci, Federica Baby Doll, Takeshi Kurosawa, the Djs of Angels Of Love (Paco’S, Fiore, Simone Cavagnuolo, Lello Romano, Jg Bros), Stefano Noferini, and many others great italian djs. During his brief career he received numerous compliments, also by some of the famous Djs he played with. But all this wasn’t enough for him to keep working as a dj: he ended his career in 2005 because of the disappointment he felt towards the environment and his coworkers.
Now, in 2010, he touched his console for the first time in 5 years and decided to keep pursuing his dream, but changing his sound from a pure Tech-House style, which he used to entertain with in the past years, to a mixture of Minimal, Techno and House. Also, he started to produce electronic music, and he stared to be a guest dj for some international radio stations (Digitally Imported, Proton radio, Club And Dance). Also, he have a show mix, named “The Italian Job”, streamed every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday by the US web radio EnationFM.
