Sauna is the latest moniker of Swiss-born production wizard Alessandro Marinelli.
With influences ranging from jazz, hip-hop, funk, and of course – house and techno, Alessandro has developed a curated sonic identity. Combined with his raw talent and dedication to his craft, Sauna’s production and sets reflect a precision and maturity that is taking the underground by storm.
Sauna’s debut release (also Family Unit’s first release) the Unification EP, was met with critical acclaim and quickly sold out, officially marking Sauna’s presence as a top-class producer.
Behind the decks, Alessandro brings a similar attention to detail as he crafts his sets through perfectly mixed minimal grooves, deep-house party pleasers, and tripped out electro artillery.
With international appearances at the likes of 262 Club (Genova), Living Room (Lugano), Vanilla Club (Riazzino), and at Berlin institutions such as Anita Berber and Humboldthain, Sauna is on an impressive trajectory.
As a Family Unit resident, Alessandro brings his passion & technical prowess to the label. As a sound-engineer, he demonstrates his range not only through his sharp production and finely crafted DJ sets, but also to the sonic identity of the collective and party series.
