Bailo w/ Havok Roth
Bailo (Gennaro Bailo) was born August 7, 1991 in Brooklyn, but raised in Queens, NY. He spent much valued time with his grandfather, an Italian singer, who greatly influences Bailo and his mind-blowing tracks still today.
Music has always been in his blood. At the young age of 7, Bailo began singing and utilizing his natural talents. He auditioned for shows, including American Idol, X Factor, and The Voice. As he grew personally and artistically, his interest in singing shifted toward producing. Bailo went from banging on tables in high school with his friends, to making numerous mixtapes for upcoming artists. He’s also made his own mixtape, titled “No Sleep.” The turning point for Bailo occurred at the age of 21 when he was introduced to the EDM genre, specifically trap. It immediately “clicked” for him, and he hasn’t stopped ferociously chasing the dream; recently releasing “Clique,” under Borgore’s label, Buygore.
In the last few months, more artists than ever have taken interest in Bailo, offering him the opportunity to work with names like Riot Ten, HeroBust, 4B, Kennedy Jones, Milk N Cooks, Adventure Club, and many more. Buygore also just released another one of Bailo’s remixes, titled “Breaker.”
If you know of Bailo, you’ve heard his remix of Calvin Harris’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” which essentially put him on the underground trap map. This, along with the rest of his music, was and is heavily supported by DJ Snake, Borgore, Brillz, UZ, HeroBust, 4B, and Kennedy Jones.
Bailo has rapidly become the most promising upcoming producer of trap, so ready your ears for some fresh, innovative, killer beats!
“This is only the beginning,” says Bailo.
Hailing from Venezuela and relocating to Miami at ten years old – it’s no surprise Havok Roth, born Julio Nunez, was taught to love the art of music and rhythm at a young age. Picking up the love for instruments early on, this paved the road to becoming fluent in guitar and piano, dabbling in drums, bass-guitar, and harmonica whilst simultaneously becoming vocally versed. This medley of skill sets combined with his passion lay the groundwork for a diversified artistic pallet.
Taking inspiration and elements from Punk Rock to R&B even to Indie Folk, Havok Roth is no stranger to the art of genre bending and pushing the limits within the Electronic field – fusing irregular musical components to curate a one of a kind sounds.
With releases from Steve Aoki’s imprint Dim Mak, Mad Decent’s Good Enuff, Fool’s Gold and Elysian Records as well as being apart of the notable Daruma collective – Havok Roth is paving the way for up-and-coming producers with his organic sounds filled with textured rhythms and bellowing 808’s.
