Three words come to mind when entering the world of GIAN: Futuristic, atmospheric and urban. Having taught himself to be proficient in various instruments, production is his virtuosity. Being completely self-produced, GIAN expresses his creativity through morphing and processing sounds, effortlessly blending genres and concepts, treating the technical nature of music production as an instrument of his own. His creative control and imprint is present during every stage of the creation of his songs, which start with an idea - and more often than not - in his bedroom.
There, his music assumes form: Digital drums, synthesisers and reverberating tones accommodate the raw sounds of his guitar. Dreamy vocals glide effortlessly over his self-made beats, with a laid back delivery that blurs the line between singing and rapping.
Based in Basel, GIAN has received support and coverage of a multitude of notable outlets in Switzerland, such as SRF Virus, SRF3 & punktCH, Lyrics Magazine, Rete Tre, RSI Radio Basilisk, Radio Energy (Web) and more. He can also be found on stage, where he has in collaboration with Just Because played over 40 shows throughout Switzerland so far.
In 2021, GIAN has taken his listeners on a Journey with his "Bad Vacation" EP. While releasing five songs, with each forming a chapter in his life, the rising Swiss producer and artist told his story. 2022 will see him releasing new music, breaking down borders between pop, trap and his very own vapor soul style.
