The age of the 16 bits
The new horizons offered by the computers era in the music making process and the improvements of the digital graphic technologies have built the pillars for his creative growth driving the destiny of this talented artist to the music, digital animation and filmmaking. As a singer, since he was a little guy, he came across tons of music genres.
Khappa MJ said that he doens’t play games since a lot of years ago, but old arcade games has been for him a link to the emerging graphic tecniques. Not for playing games but for making digital art. He was extremely fascinated by the way to create music videos just using computer as a powerful tool of creativity and freedom.
For sure many artists want to express themselves using different ways and Khappa MJ is absolutely one of them.
The first music band: the "Atomics".
After few experiences in minor young bands it became the right time for Khappa MJ to found his first band called “Atomics”. The sound they produced was a combination of industrial rock and some electronic influences. In the second half of the 90s this style was very common in many music genres.
The “Atomics” band was formed by 4 elements: drummer, bass guitar player, guitar player and Khappa.
He introduced to the rest of the band some basetracks made using the 486 PC computer and a software coming from the old and innovative Amiga computer. That’s was an absolute uncommon and innovative solution for the 90’s music scene.
“Danger: radiations“, “Mercenaries“, “Beneath a steel sky” (title inspired by a famous 90s game) and the first “Atomic city“. These were some of the songs title that revealed their futuristic and pioneering music vision.

Collaborations with big names.
In the 1998 when Khappa was still a guy, one of the young band were he had played for, got an amazing opportunity to play at a gig opening for a Daniele Silvestri‘s concert. Later he just started other collaborations with DJs and producers for new songs in Italy and later in UK where he base his own studio: the K-Storm Studio. In the next time several new unexpected experiences for few theatres were coming.
Just acting various roles and being a supporter in the short film of Matteo Mercanti “The girl in red” alongside the famous actor Fabio Testi. He has also met a few other directors and great interpreters, such as Matteo Ierimonte, young director and winner of the award “director emerging” at Berlin Film Festival 2014, Annamaria Zaccaria and other amazing actresses in the making of his first film called: Fire of Darkness.
Working for the Arena theatre of Verona Khappa MJ met some of the major directors in the World. Ugo Deana, Francesco Micheli and Franco Zeffirelli. To Royal Opera House of Muscut (capital of the Sultanate of Oman) in the Arab Emirates just working with the Arena team he launched the first opera season of the arab countries directed by the conductor Placido Domingo.
For the italian television he has worked with a very popular italian anchorwoman, Antonella Clerici, at the house of Juliet. He has also acted few tv spots like Gardaland Park, but of course, his career has another flavour.
How many times all we think that lives of artist lives are only easy and brightful, but the truth is differtent. In case of Khappa MJ unfortunately he came across few bad experiences along his career. A stolen song, two worthless producers, the premature death of his mother and the his father’s disease but as always… there is no gain without pain. Khappa doesn’t wanna talk very much about the bad memories of his life! He love to remember instead all his best times. It’s time to thrust again in other persons and of course, keep working on his career and making his music and all other ideas as he can.
