For the love of good vibes and good music.

It’s quite easy to fall into the trap of believing that you’ll only pursue a certain career or passion once you’ve reached a particular age, when reality is, if you don’t start now, you quite possibly never will.

At only 17 years old,Β Celso Fabbri is already making a name for himself on the PE social scene DJing events and sharing his music producing skills. Armed with the special ability to get a crowd in the mood to groove, Celso is definitely one to watch.
