Since 1983, Zanetti has recorded under the stage name Savage. His song "Don't Cry Tonight" was successful across Europe and has been frequently remixed since. The same year, he recorded "Only You", a slow disco number which has also become significantly popular. His first album, Tonight was commercially successful and preceded singles like "Radio", "Time", "A Love Again", "Celebrate", and "Love Is Death". In 1989, he recorded "I Just Died in Your Arms" (a Hi-NRG remake of the Cutting Crew song), as well as a greatest hits album. In 1994, he released another album, Strangelove, containing a number of remixes of his older songs and four mixes of the song "Strangelove" (originally by Depeche Mode). The last single which was released by Savage was "Don't You Want Me", which appeared on his own label, Dance World Attack Records (DWA) in 1994. This track does not appear on the Strangelove album. After a fifteen-year silence, he released "Twothousandnine" as a single in October 2009.

Producing career

In the early 1990s, Robyx pioneered the production of the Eurodance style. Hits such as "Think About the Way" by Ice MC, "Me and You" by Alexia, and "Run to Me" by Double You made Robyx an international success as a producer. Zanetti is widely credited for increasing the exposure of Eurodance on radio. In 1997, Robyx produced Alexia's "The Summer is Crazy". Since 1997, Robyx has produced less music, and has focused on Italian pop music as opposed to the Eurodance genre.
