About Vinjay
Vincenzo Facino, also known by his stage name “VINJAY”, is an Italian Dj, Musician and Record Producer officially active since the early 2000s.
Born in Crotone (Italy), he takes his first steps in his hometown where early approaches to electronic music-production and to djing, playing House-Music and working in the most renowed local venues.
After spending some years honing his musical craft, compositional techniques and studio production, Vinjay moves to Spain (living and working as dj between Tenerife and Ibiza), stimulated by new ideas, new sounds, new experiences and new projects.
Driven by the exposure and ambitious new ideas and collaborations and being come into contact with
labels, promoters and djs, spreading and sharing his own music, it wasn’t long before he comes to the
attention of prominent club promoters and to the attention of a more influential and particular audience
becoming very appreciated and debuting both as headliner dj and as warm-up dj at a variety of important
international and national venues (clubs, festivals) such as:
- Ministry Of Sound (United Kingdom) - Rock in Rio Festival (Spain-Portugal-Brasil)
- House Of Madness Festival (Italy) - Papagayo Beach Club (Tenerife-Canary Islands)
- Veto Social Club (Ibiza-Spain) - Tango (Ibiza-Spain) - Piper (Italy) - Cafè Del Mar (Spain)
- Gay Village (Italy) - Noise Club (Lanzarote-Canary Islands) - Trafik (United Kingdom)

- Cafè Solaire (Italy) - Dadaumpa (Italy) - Acanto Beach Club (Italy) - Exit Festival (Italy),

Recognized as one of the most technical and talented italian djs (or european ? ) (quotes by Piero Fidelfatti, Junior Jack,etc) , he’s a versatile and polyhedral artist and a self-taught musician.
Originally his sound takes inspiration from the music pf Daft Punk, Giorgio Moroder, Todd Terje; so is a cross between Dance and House grooves to the elements of Electronic Disco-Music from late 70's and early 80's.
The final result is explosive, original, innovative, highly personal and it "makes everyone want to dance”.
His artistic skills in live performances allows him to fuse together both the classical elements of the traditional Dj-Set (cdjs or turntables) with the more modern and technologically vanguard style of modern electronic music (Synthesizers, Midi Controllers and Drum-Machines).
Between late 2009 and 2010 he participates at the 10th edition of the prestigious European Dj Competition "Movida Corona Dj-Producer Contest", a competition for Djs organized and promoted by MTV and "Corona Extra" and he wins the Award as Best Italian Dj and Brand Ambassador of "Corona Extra"in Rome (Italy), with award recognition delivered directly by the house-music legend Junior Jack (E-Samba man); later he also goes on to win the bronze medal during the European Grand-Final in London, the award presented this time by american dj Felix Da Housecat.
Declaring himself against all kind of drugs, in these years Vinjay also gets involved in some charity work like "United Djs For Abruzzo", together with other international top djs like Umek, Mauro Picotto, Joy Kitikonti, Valentino Kanzyani, Mario Più.
This charity project is a tribute to Abruzzo (Italy) earthquake victims and he donates his music.
