Ivo received his first influences from his family, particularly his grandparents who were descendants from Croatia and Italy, who immigrated to Peru to discover new exotic places and ways of life. Ivo Draganac Macchiavello, was born in Lima, Peru and became involved in the Latin culture, where electronic music and design weren’t well developed at the time in the 80's. His involvement grew and he benefited from the strong creativity of those early years and from the influences of an ancient culture.
Passionate with art, design and innovation he uses these two tendencies vigorously within his music and design with his trademarks ID DESIGN © & ID MUSIC ©. He has developed different facets of design: Illustration, Printed Design, Multimedia, 3D Animation, Photography and Clothing Design.
In 1984 he discovered his first musical inspiration ‘Front 242’ along with other German and Belgian music producers. He started with a mini sampler keyboard and so his deep knowledge of contemporary electronic music started. Fascinated by the music, Ivo decided to produce many tracks and remixes. His formal profession is Art Direction and Graphic Design and also has a Masters degree in 3d and multimedia. His early design experiences were advocated to produce the first 3D flyer designs in Lima, Peru for the discos Mamut and Blue Buddha. They were the first places to focus on electronic music in Lima, Peru back in the 90's.
Ivo is a nature traveler that loves to discover new places and experiences. Later on, Ivo moved his life to a new location in CT / NYC, USA, were he has lived since 2003. He has continued to broaden his creative pursuits and has been inspired with his trips to Belgium, Canada, Chile, France, Germany, Peru, Spain & USA.
His music is focuses on the style of electro, melodic and space electronics. His first experiments mixed industrial rhythms with dance feelings and high BPM's. He has created remixes in tribute to bands like Front 242 on tracks like: "Operating Tracks", "Masterhit", "Headhunter" & "Until Death". He made the flyer and T-shirt designs for the last USA tour for the Belgian Band Front 242.
His beats are powered by high tension rhythms, where only sensitive listeners will be able to define a scheme of understanding & harmony. ID Music is a window open for all people who are looking for dynamic beats.
Ivo has shared the stage with the following artists:
Arian 1, Unidad Central, Amduscia, Reaxxion Guerilla - Anthony Rother, Felix Da House Cat, Junkie XL, Steve Lawler (Creamfields Festival) Soman, Melotron and Aesthetic Perfection.
