Bailo (Gennaro Bailo) was born August 7, 1991 in Brooklyn, but raised in Queens, NY. He spent much valued time with his grandfather, an Italian singer, who greatly influences Bailo and his mind-blowing tracks still today.
Music has always been in his blood. At the young age of 7, Bailo began singing and utilizing his natural talents. He auditioned for shows, including American Idol, X Factor, and The Voice. As he grew personally and artistically, his interest in singing shifted toward producing. Bailo went from banging on tables in high school with his friends, to making numerous mixtapes for upcoming artists. He’s also made his own mixtape, titled “No Sleep.” The turning point for Bailo occurred at the age of 21 when he was introduced to the EDM genre, specifically trap. It immediately “clicked” for him, and he hasn’t stopped ferociously chasing the dream; recently releasing “Clique,” under Borgore’s label, Buygore.
In the last few months, more artists than ever have taken interest in Bailo, offering him the opportunity to work with names like Riot Ten, HeroBust, 4B, Kennedy Jones, Milk N Cooks, Adventure Club, and many more. Buygore also just released another one of Bailo’s remixes, titled “Breaker.”
If you know of Bailo, you’ve heard his remix of Calvin Harris’ “How Deep Is Your Love,” which essentially put him on the underground trap map. This, along with the rest of his music, was and is heavily supported by DJ Snake, Borgore, Brillz, UZ, HeroBust, 4B, and Kennedy Jones.
Bailo has rapidly become the most promising upcoming producer of trap, so ready your ears for some fresh, innovative, killer beats!
“This is only the beginning,” says Bailo.
