What we do

Motivo was first born as a production company in 1998 bringing a number of quality productions and remixes to the dance music scene. Level 42, Vengaboys, Kool & the Gang, Malik from Outhere Brothers, Simply Red, Triple X, Wisdome, Snap!, Love Connection, Timbaland feat. Missy Elliott, Paul Johnson, Wisdome, ATC, Plaything are some of the projects and collaborations of the early production company which rapidly lead the original founding duo Ricky Romanini and Luca Moretti to be acknowledged as one of the most respected teams of the “Made In Italy” dance music scene.
Over the years Motivo has managed to secure various successful records for both worldwide and local release spanning between dance/house hits from Michael Gray, Milky (“Just The Way You Are” #8 UK Top 75 Singles/#1 UK Top 75 Dance/#3 UK Airplay /#1 USA Billboard Dance Airplay), David Guetta vs The Egg, Priors, De Nuit, Tom Novy, Spankox, Freemasons, Danzel, LMC Vs U2, Gianluca Motta, Pain & Rossini (to name a few) to the very different styles delivered by Panjabi Mc, Fatman Scoop, Coolio, Urthboy, Io Carlo (“L’ego” #2 iTunes Italia/#6 Singoli FIMI — “Danziamo” #1 iTunes/#3 Singoli FIMI), Kmc, Snap! vs Motivo, Speedy feat.
