Trying to sum up Gianfranco Bortolotti career is an arduous task, because there is the risk of skipping many things that could help to understand his mission in life but most of all his successes. We can say that consciousness and authority have always been his first rule, since the beginning of his career in the 1980s, when a very young Gianfranco dedicated his time and energy into Italo disco. Music producer Bortolotti founded Media Records in Brescia, in 1987, and it is the most successful Italian dance music brand in history. He is responsible for creating some of the most commercially successful dance music acts during the 80’s & 90’s. He’s responsible for more than 150 gold & platinum hit projects (Cappella, Gigi D’Agostino, 49ers, Picotto and Joy Kitikonti to name just a few) and music brands (BXR, Noisemaker, Heartbeat. UMM & Underground). Now celebrating 30 successful years in the business, World of Media is launching a range of new music labels, artist careers, events and technologies in 2017. Gianfranco also runs a global artist management division, which already boasts a modern day success story, with the Italian rapper Mr Rain.
