Career: 2006 – present[edit]

The trio formed initially under the moniker "Black Raw" and "Spit". They rapidly switched to Daddy's Groove, who fit better each other's influences.

Daddy's Groove got their first big exposure when Swedish House Mafia's Axwell reached out to them to remix his track "Nothing But Love" which ended being a collab-remix of Axwell and Daddy's Groove. The collaboration climaxed when they got offered to open for Swedish House Mafia's Masquerade Motel in Ibiza.

Soon after, David Guetta got in touch with them for additional production on his album "Nothing But The Beat". They quickly became David Guetta's protégés and got offered to remix his tracks.[2][3] spawning tracks on Jack Back Records, and having David Guetta remixing one of their tracks "Turn the light downs", closing 2012 in a great way for the trio.

2013 saw them releasing several tracks on Spinnin Records including several Beatport chart-toppers such as Stellar, Hurricane, Vertigo (feat Cryogenix), Unbelievable (ft Rob Adans) and Walking On Air (ft. Dino).

As most of their tracks were doing well, the touring increased. David Guetta booked them for his Ibiza summer residency "Fuck Me I'm Famous" 3 years in a row at Pacha Ibiza and Ushuaia. F*ck me I’m Famous[4] (Pacha Ibiza & Miami).

They also toured extensively around the world,playing in the US, all over Europe, India, China, Japan and Australia. Most of their booking were in supersized clubs such as Ministry Of Sound, Zouk Singapore, Vision Tokyo, Pacha Sydney, Marquee Las Vegas, Story Miami or San Francisco.

They later caught the eye of Black Eyed Peas', who asked them to work on the production of Britney Spears' latest album "Britney Jean". They also did the mixing on one of Lady Gaga's track "Fashion!" on her "Artpop" album.

By the end of 2013 after signing at Ultra Records, they released another hit-track "Surrender" feat Mindshake which saw they popularity increase when David Guetta offered them to join him, Nicky Romero and Afrojack on the mainstage of Belgium's biggest festival Tomorrowland.

2014 kept them on the same string of success, having their tracks "Miners" and "Synthemilk" (with Congorock), reaching the #3 spot on Beatport's top 10. Hitting major festivals during summer such as Global Gathering & Tomorrowland, after another resident season at David Guetta's party, Gianni took a step back from touring to spend some more time in the studio. September saw the trio back on the Beatport & iTunes charts again with their vocal track "Pulse (Ft. Teammate)". David Guetta's album "Listen", released in November, features 7 tracks in which Daddy's Groove are credited for Additional Production & Drums programming.
