Blanco’s rise to prominence began when he released his Quarantine Paranoid EP on SoundCloud in 2020. It didn’t take long for Universal Music Group and Island Records to recognize his potential, leading to the production of his hit singles, Belladonna (Adieu) and Notti in bianco.

At just 20 years old, Blanco’s music resonates deeply with his generation, characterized by its boundary-pushing nature and uninhibited attitude. Blanco’s creative journey is just beginning, with a platinum album and two singles already under his belt.

When asked about his definition of style, Blanco eloquently describes it as the element that best represents a person, reflecting their consistency and embodying their true essence.
