When not travelling in between the fantastic city of Bologna, and his second hub for music Berlin, you can find Taboo Traxx co-founder, Jackie, in the studio, creating deep and thoughtful house music, nodding to sounds of the past he has collected on his journey.

We asked Jackie the top 5 labels that have influenced him and Taboo Traxx…
1. RIVIERA TRAXX (https://www.discogs.com/it/label/1411249-Riviera-Traxx)
Label run by – Davide Ruberto, Enrico Serotti, Flavio Vecchi, Kid Bachelor , Patrick Duvoisin , Ricky Montanari in the ’90. Italy
This Label represents the soulful and solid house sound of italian house music’s golden age, in particular a little part of the east coast called riviera romagnola, where the club culture influenced all the house music scene during the ’90 and we think that also today got an intense part in the new generation’s sound.
2. WIGGLE (https://www.discogs.com/it/label/177-Wiggle)
Label run by – Terry Francis, Nathan Coles, Launched in March 1994, London
So many stories and so many different artists and styles, gathered on this label, where you can feel some timeless vibes that perfectly describe part of the UK’s underground sound in that period.
3. GUIDANCE RECORDINGS (https://www.discogs.com/it/label/95-Guidance-Recordings)
Label run by – Spencer Kincy, Ivan Pavlovich and rob Kouchouskos , Chicago.
Gemini and all the colours that he released on his label really got an intense and deep influence on our productions and on our vision of the house music.
There are some gems inside that really open your mind once you started to listen.
4. CALYPSO (https://www.discogs.com/it/label/4473-Calypso-Records)
Sub Label of Irma records, Bologna Italy.
Diversified and multicolored discography for a legendary label of the ’90.
If you dig you can find some dreamy italian stuff that really takes you back in time.
5. NEEDS MUSIC (https://www.discogs.com/it/label/1871-Needs-Music)
Frankfurt based record label by Yannick Elvevrfeld, Lars Bartkuhn and Marek Bartkuhn.
Deep house with some jazzy and techno soul stuff; massive discography that really can surprise you every time.
