Vitraž Lexicon 08 –  Francesco Chiocci

Be honest, bare and naked with Vitraz Q&A. The 8th episode is with unique and renowned DJ from Italy Francesco Chiocci.

We are introducing the lexicon section, in which we will be real, bare, and naked. Famous people, followers, acquaintances. Without any differences. It seems that we are becoming increasingly estranged, so we want to do our part to bring us back together through basic human interaction. Through honesty, interests, and recommendations. 

Many spend years together without asking the right questions and really get to know each other. Maybe you’ll read the answers you’re looking for, perhaps someone will be an inspiration, a surprise. Honesty is the most incredible luxury we can afford.

In this episode we hosted DJ and music composer from Italy. Hailing from Perugia, Francesco got the best from Italy – passion, sense of humor and honor, also balls to be what he really is in music, without any compromise – in todays DJing is an extremely hard task.

“Black Sunrise” with the singer Black Soda or “Nightmares” are the highlights of his musical production but only if you’re not that into his music, cause he got numerous hidden gems and remixes, even far better, jut keep on lurking on Bandcamp.

Francesco is mostly collaborating with italian label MoBlack Records, but he had releases on various record labels (call them giants) as Innervisions, Watergate Records, Connaisseur Recordings or Keinemusik (“Dele Sosimi”).

Your childhood dream, a trait you carried along into adulthood

My inner child is always with me. Sometimes I try to hide him, but at certain point he always comes up again, even now and this is something I always wanted to carry along.

Three qualities you value the most in others

Kindness, motivation, perseverance.

Three qualities that repulse you the most 

Honestly I don’t like people that are too serious, pretentious and selfish.

Unfulfilled dream

I hope to be able to put together an album sooner or later 🙂

Greatest individual success

Talking about music, there are some, but I’d say around 2015. when Black Coffee asked me to include “Black Sunrise” as part of his upcoming album at the time, and I had to refuse. Then he decided to open his Mixmag covermix with the same song.

Which compliment would please you the most, in regards to yourself.

I like when they say I’m funny, because it’s true!

Favorite song (at the moment, all time…)

At the moment I really like something I’m working on. All time it’s difficult to say, maybe I would say “The Bright Forest” by Culoe De Song, It’s a stand alone track.

Favorite book


Scenario, scenery, ideal, that you dream about (description if needed)

Playing as a resident DJ in my own club together with other DJ’s I like the most. I see more oftrn talented DJ’s playing in their bedroom in favor of just “ok DJ’s”.

What do you fear the most?

Sometimes I’m afraid about other’s music taste LOL.

What do people lack the most?

Hard to answer because I should generalize.

What do you lack the most?

I lack gigs, so to answer to your previous question, I can say that many people lack of musical taste LOL. So, do yourself a favour, book me 🙂

Most significant regret

More studying, it will always help you anyway.

Favorite movie

“The Mask”.

Three favorite spots from your favorite city (tip, recommendation, doesn’t have to be your hometown)

Actually I don’t have a city in particular, but I can suggest Umbria in general, where I also live. You can find the lake Trasimeno with one of the best sunsets or city of Assisi. Also I would suggest Giardino degli Aranci in Rome.


Three to five qualities that u find in opposite/same sex that take your breath away (description if necessary).

Talking about women, I like determination, sensuality, but also I appreciate a lot wisdom. For the same sex, I respect a lot those who know more then me about anything (knowledge in general, life, music), simple people with a great sense of humor. About women, when I find at least those 3 qualities together is – WOW!

Describe yourself in one word

They say that I’m a funny guy. I think it’s true, sometimes 🙂

Your message, favorite quote, moto 

When life gives you lemons, then make lemonade!🍋

Three things without which happiness seems unattainable

Good enviroment (friends and context around you), being busy in something, and of course music, forever. Ciao!
