Gino Caporale has spent most of his life behind the turntables or a mixing board. He began his career at the young age of 15 after stumbling upon his uncle’s turntables and mixed beats. In the early ‘80s, Gino first honed his skills in local nightclubs, like Cachet before moving on to higher profile venues, like GWizz and Christine’s, where… his true talent and ability were able to flourish while working alongside DJs like Robbie Tronco and Mark Milano.
Gino moved into radio with a nationally syndicated show featuring his dance mixes. He also worked as Billboard’s dance reporter in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s, while at the same time becoming one of the top 50 DJ’s in the US to make Billboard’s dance music chart.
Gino’s passion for music naturally progressed into producing. Gino became one of the pioneering contributors to the sound of Freestyle and set a standard for the best beats in that genre. Working side-by-side with producer Adam Marano, Gino produced several hit records on the Billboard charts for a variety of Freestyle artists such as Collage and Denine as well as creating several top-selling remixes for music talent such as Depeche Mode, De La Soul and 69 Boys.
Gino’s presence can be felt around the world with his weekly Club 418 Mix Show.
His 25-year career in music has led to strong relationships with top DJ’s worldwide, in turn, providing Headhunter Promotion’s clients with an accessible route for their music to be heard and supported by the front line of the music business, “The DJs”.
