Early life and first releases

When he was a teenager, he was already introducing himself to the world of Italian house and dance music. In 1997, he released his first single, "Laguna". Billed as Laguna, in 1997 Spiller teamed up with fellow Italian producer Tommy Vee, to release the single "Spiller From Rio (Do It Easy)", which reached number 40 in the UK Singles Chart. In 1998, he signed a music deal with the British record label, Positiva Records, a subsidiary of EMI UK, releasing his first solo single in the UK entitled "Batucada". In 1999, he released "Mighty Miami EP", a maxi-single including the instrumental track "Groovejet".

Mainstream popularity and "Groovejet"

In 2000, the vocal version of "Groovejet" was released. "Groovejet (If This Ain't Love)" featuring the British singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor (formerly of theaudience) peaked at #1 in the UK, Australia and many other countries, becoming one of the most successful dance records of the year and winning multiple awards. It was also the first song to be played on an iPod according to technology journalist Steven Levy and the BBC's TOTP2 Goes Disco!. Groovejet sold over 2,000,000 copies worldwide.

Later releases

In 2002, he released "Cry Baby" in the UK. In 2003, Spiller decided to take control over his own productions and thus established his own independent label Nano Records, based in Venice, Italy. In 2004 a single titled "Sola" was released by Positiva. In the UK the single was supported by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1. In 2006, he released "Jumbo". His 2011 single, "Pigeonman's Revenge" is an instrumental house track with a videoclip formed by Starlings directed by photographer James Mollison.
