Lele Sacchi started his career in music quite early. At 15 he was already presenting a radio show on a small local radio (playing punk, hip hop and indie rock) and at 18 he was contributing with nationwide music magazines.
But it’s in 1994 that he understands his deepest love is playing records in front of an audience.
