Tava rules Spotify with collaborations featuring VIZE, Laurent Wolf, and more.
Gianluca Tavani, better known by his stage name, Tava, is quickly becoming one of Italy’s biggest exports in the DJ and music production world. The Piacenza native has been making waves with his unique sound and successful collaborations with some of the biggest names in the industry.
It all started for Tava 11 years ago when he first entered a nightclub at 15 and was immediately enamoured with the world of DJs. It wasn’t long before he bought his own equipment and started playing at local parties and events. He was noticed by club organizers and landed his first gig as a resident DJ.
In 2012, Tava started working in the studio, producing his tracks, and making a name for himself outside his hometown. Tava’s big break came from his first collaboration with Nari & Milani, “Twilight”, released on Doorn Records. This was followed by “I Am Alright”, which French superstar Laurent Wolf remixed. Tava’s collaboration with Nari, Stefano Pain, and Luciana, “Pump It Up”, quickly hit #1 on the Beatport Electro House top 100 charts and received millions of plays on Spotify and radio.
Tava also released tracks with VIZE and Emie in a side project, “R4GE”, and has worked with 82nd-ranked DJ, Mag Burak Yeter. His productions have been supported by some of the biggest names in the industry, including Tiesto, Don Diablo, Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike, Hardwell, and Bob Sinclar, to name a few. In addition, Tava has released tracks on some of the best international labels, including Spinnin’ Records, Revealed, Smash The House, Sony Germany, Armada, Universal Germany, Future House Cloud, and EGO Italy.
Tava’s latest collaboration, “Para Paradise”, with famous artists VIZE and vocalist Emie, has been added to the most important Spotify editorial playlists and accumulated more than three million streams on Sony Music Germany. This side project, “R4GE”, showcases TAVA’s versatility and ability to work with a diverse range of artists. With many successful collaborations and a growing fanbase, TAVA quickly became a household name in electronic dance music.
Tava’s success can be attributed to his hard work, patience, and humility. He always followed his passion for music, which is paying off in the form of millions of streams and fans worldwide. He even has a tattoo that reads, “Live your dreams as if they were real”, to remind him of his mission. TAVA is poised to continue his rise in the industry and expand his name. His plans for the future include starting his own record label and performing at major festivals such as Tomorrowland and Ultra Music Festival.
Tava is a force to be reckoned with in the music world. With his unique sound, successful collaborations, and millions of streams, he is quickly making a name for himself and solidifying his place as one of Italy’s biggest exports. Keep an eye out for what TAVA has in store for the future as he continues to rule Spotify with his innovative productions and collaborations.
