Marshall DGR
Claudio Milanetti, Marshall DGR's art, was born in Alghero on 9 July 1981.

Since he was a child, he showed an affinity and interest in art and every aspect of it, with a particular focus on music, painting, sculpture and video.

At the age of 8 he began his studies in classical guitar and solfeggio at the "Istituto Musicale Giuseppe Verdi" in Alghero.

After a few years he decided - with the constant support of his parents and close friends - to start studying drums and percussion with Maestro Riccardo Ledda at the "Modern Music" school in Alghero, directed by Maestro Mauro Uselli.

So, at the age of 13, he began to practice his technical music studios of drums forming a band with 4 friends (1 drums, 1 electric bass, 1 electric guitar soloist, 1 rhythmic acoustic guitar and a synth piano).

From the beginning, musical and artistic interests were oriented towards musical profiles that were not suitable for the 13-year-olds of that time (Prodigy and electronics, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Pink Floyd and psychedelic etc.) ... even if today we are witnessing a rediscovery of these genres.

<<With the study and experimentation of new sounds and techniques - says Marshall - we have done everything possible to avoid commercial influences and standardization so as to appreciate as much as possible all those nuances that could help us to find our own musical line ad hoc.>>

In parallel, over the years he has participated in different musical projects with other bands and artists, intellectuals and professionals of different backgrounds such as: Maestro Riccardo Ledda, Maestro Mauro Uselli, Maestro Felice Galluccio (now classical guitar master at the Giuseppe Verdi Musical Institute in Alghero), Maestro Cristiano Caria, Paolo Borsato, Antonio Bellu, Giulio Galleri, Paolo Mura, Claudio Deriu and many others.

As he grew, so did his interest in themes and genres of music tending towards electronics and the use of new devices (loop stations, drum machines, synths, DJ controllers, etc.), which marked a certain differentiation from the normal profile of bands.

In 2003, for work reasons, he left Sardinia (even if temporarily), wandering here and there all over the boot, performing in various clubs.

In 2004 he participated as percussionist in the musical project called "Llimbrigul Del Mòn" (from the Catalan "Ombelico del Mondo") composed of: 1 DJ (Antonello D'Arrigo), 1 sax (Giordano Esposito), 1 keyboard-synth and electric guitar (Antonio Bellu), 2 percussion (Dame Guaye and Marshall himself). The project performs successful live performances mainly based on the House music genre in various clubs in northern Sardinia.

In 2006 he settled in Milan, where he has the opportunity to perform as a DJ and live performer in various clubs in the city. Considering his interest, he decided to create the brand "DE-GENERATION", becoming artistic director of its independent record label ("DE-GENERATION RECORDS") thanks to the technical support of Antonio Bellu, in art Vnicum.

The new musical project "DE-GENERATION" is a bet, almost a personal challenge, aimed at capitalizing on and sharing their years of experience and study.

Thanks to the meeting with Roberto Muratori and the staff of V-TEAM, a new audio-video musical project comes to life, presented in various clubs in Milan. Specifically, Marshall delights in live electronic performances and DJ sets while V-TEAM technicians deal with visual mapping.

In 2011 he began a collaboration with the "Mogamo Club Milano" where Marshall organizes monthly events aimed at the presentation of music productions "DE-GENERATION RECORDS" and new collaborations with artists of various nationalities and other record labels, such as Klengmann, BlackWall Records, Patrick Leyka, Sun Elektrish, Jimmi Koskinen etc..

In 2013 he started attending saxophone and clarinet courses at the "Civic School of Music for L'Ogliastra" of Lanusei.

In 2104 (pardon: 2014!) he meets
