Francesco de Bellis is a Roman DJ and producer. He made his recording debut in 1996 as MAT101, together to Mario Pierro aka Rotla. The duo's album, Goodbye Mum, reworks arcade influences and electro sounds and is still considered a classic. In 1999 MAT101 evolved into a new project, Jolly Music. Ranging from psychedelia to disco, electro to hip hop, the originality of the Jolly Music sound leads to a contract with Illustrious Records, a dance-oriented sublabel of Sony UK. The record was immediately recognized in England as one of the most interesting new releases of 2000, opening the doors to important collaborations, such as with Erlend Oye of Kings of Convenience. After 10 years of releases on Nature Records and Pigna, Francesco begins his career from solo as Francisco and Mr. Cisco, with releases on Klaxson, 2020Vision, Eskimo and Slow Motion, to name a few. from always a big vinyl collector, his sound is crisp and multifaceted, to straddling the most mature Italo, Chicago house and old school disco.
