==== Phase 1 [1999-2017] ====
They started their career in 1999 inspired by the release of Propellerheads’ ReBIRTH music software which they were using extensively in the studio, from this, the idea for the ReLOUD brand name was born. 2004 saw their first official release on TIME Records (under the name ReMOVIDAS - Pincia Samba). The focus now on releasing club ready music working with labels like Ocean Trax, Rise Records, Azuli, GUT RECORDS and with artist like Bini & Martini, Alex Gaudino, Dave Piccioni, their work now featured on many international imprints like “PACHA IBIZA”, “SPACE IBIZA”, “PARADISE CLUB MIKONOS”, “HED KANDI” just to name a few.
Quickly gaining a solid reputation, their work was being played and supported by many of the topflight global DJs of the time like Eric Morillo, Milk & Sugar, David Morales, Wally Lopez, Prok & Fitch (and many more) also getting major support from renown radio stations like BBC Radio 1, Ministry of Sound Radio, Hed Kandi Radio, in itself leading to several top 10 chart positions in the UK CLUB CHART, BUZZ CHART, COOL CUTS CHART. This led to many collaborations with international artists like OLA, Inaya Day, Crystal Waters, Jungle Brothers just to name a few. 2015 saw them debut on one of the best Italian independent
labels D:VISION with their ONCE AGAIN single that immediately received tremendous support by many big name DJs like Benny Benassi, Bob Sinclair, Chus & Ceballos, Fatboy Slim, Groove Armada, Hernan Cattaneo, Marco Carola, Nora En Pure, and Roger Sanchez. David Morales loved the track so much that he reached out to officially remix the track. In that same year The ReLOUD won the national format TOP DJ show on SKY One TV channel being awarded one of the TOP 3 DJ acts in Italy.
From 2015 to 2017 they have released a constant stream of singles on D:VISION remixing the biggest acts in Italy from Vasco Rossi to Jovanotti as well as moving into new areas writing commercial scores for global brands like Lamborghini, Jagermeister, Ferrero and many more.
In October 2017 the ReLOUD decided to take a step back to search for a new sound and a new musical direction after a successful 18 years in clubland.
==== Phase 2 [2017 - Today] ====
Ater a short hiatus, February 2018 marks the return of The ReLOUD, back in the studio in full exploration mode towards a more refined, no-boundaries sound. During this period they start on a new album project working and collaborating
with singer songwriters from South Africa, Australia, North Ameri- ca, and Europe, a global ensemble explor-
ing the exotic flavours of the world. With the new music comes a
refreshed vision of The ReLOUD as they develop a multi-art
version of the now finished album encapsulating a video-concept art installation, commissioned illustra-
tions and a collector’s edition coffee table book.
The project became: TO THE OTHER SIDE.
==== MAT ACADEMY / AXTONE ACADEMY: ====
in 2015 The ReLOUD founded the MAT ACADEMY, the first on-demand music school that provides also a talent pool for the biggest record labels in the market (SONY, UNIVERSAL, SIRUOP, AXTONE, TIME, EGO and many more). Today MAT ACADEMY is available in 70 countries and in 3 languages counting an ever expanding 1500+ student base. With the success of the original academy concept they are now expanding with different imprints, the latest being a joint venture with global DJ and producer Axwell with the launch of the AXTONE ACADEMY.

The finest among the 10 will get a chance to perform on the biggest stages all over club-land as well as getting a full EP release. In 2018 they added the “The SOUND OF” concept where all the 10 artists get to sample the city culture and transform it into a record. 2020 will see the project move to Barcelona.
