One of the more brutally hard acid techno producers from Chicago's glory years, Robert Armani
was born on Chicago's south side in 1970. Like most producers of his generation, he began to DJ parties at the age of 14 and eventually found his way in front of a production console by the age of 18. He also started to throw house parties that gave him a reputation on the house scene. Armani
was going to give up making music and DJing and join the police academy until a trip to Italy gave him a new perspective on his career decision. He began to release a slew of singles on such labels as Chicago's Dancemania, Holland's Djax-Up Beats (where he released two his most popular tracks: "Circus Bells" and "Armani Tracks"), and a slew of releases on Italy's ACV imprint.
