Biography

Jamnesia aka Dino Lenny.
Dino Lenny starts very young as a radio deejay in a small town of the South of Italy, Cassino. He grows up within an interesting group of lads such as Savino Martinez and Claudio Coccoluto. In London his career gets a boost thanks to a long series of important remixes: Inxs, Planet Funk, Underworld, and the collaboration with The Housemartins, Wu Tang Clan, Scissors Sisters & Madonna just to mention a few names. His productions are just as interesting as the remixes and Dino Lenny earns for three time in a row the label of ” Essential New Tune” on Radio One (BBC) by the king of the dance music: Pete Tong – who will also refer to him as a “genius”. Considered “The Wizard of the Electronic music” by the Chemical Brothers, Dino Lenny explores the full range of his potentialities and starts singing. With a simplifying abbreviation of his name, Dino records the single “Call me” which becomes a terrifically popular track all over Europe. The British press defines his vocal talent as a halfway between the Talking Heads and Ian Dury. Dino shows up a perfect Serpico style and sings in front of his raving fans at Tops of the Pops.
The successful single gives just a hint of what will happen with the release of the album “Might”, in 2004.
Whilst busy with more important collaborations, Dino is invited by Hardage to take part to his project which includes Jocelyn Brown and Maxi Priest , Level 42 and Peter Gabriel, amongst the others.
