Dirty Ducks


The Dirty Ducks project was born in 2011, a collaboration featuring two friends from Modena, Italy. Alex Ratti and Federico Gualdi, always united by their passion for DJing and music production, started working together on new tracks that drew the attention of many important DJs and producers. One of their first singles, “Titan”, was released on well-known Italian label Time Records and played live for the first time by Michael Calfan in his first appearance on the Tomorrowland main stage. In the meantime, they remained hard at work, improving their production and DJ skills by playing in some of the most famous clubs in Italy. Their DJ sets are dynamic and energetic, ranging between different musical genres while maintaining coherence.

In 2014, they were chosen to remix the iconic track "Space" by Micha Moor, and their track was released on Scream and Shout to lots of support and positive feedback. In 2015, they released an "unofficial" remix of Major Lazer's hit "Lean On”, teaming up with Italian producers Merk & Kremont. It quickly became one of the most lauded remixes in the genre, played and supported by Diplo himself.

The turning point for Dirty Ducks came in 2017, when Dutch superstar Afrojack asked them to officially remix his platinum single "Used To Have It All". They also signed their collaboration with the Dutch DJ Charlie Ray "Karma" to his label Wall Recordings, reaching the Beatport Electro House Top 10 in less than a week. Their constant will to prove themselves, as well as their commitment and determination to make quality music, makes Dirty Ducks one of the most promising projects in the EDM world.
