“Be true to yourself and everything else will follow,” advises Bianca Biagioni, also known as DJ Bia Bia. That’s certainly been true for her. An authentic Italian from Tuscany, Bia Bia emigrated as a teenager to South Beach, where she attended the University of Miami, majoring in film production and economics. Inspired by Miami’s house music scene, Bia Bia started hosting events at nightclubs like Crobar, Mansion (Level) and The Living Room. She soon bought her first pair of Technic 1200s, and the newly minted bedroom DJ began spinning at her own loft. Ultimately, Bia Bia decided to put her college degree to use—she moved to Hollywood. She’s launched her own company, Eternal Productions; her debut screenplay Bocce Games, the story of a young couple trying to nurture true love in the violent world of the Italian Mafia, has been named a finalist in prestigious competitions. Bia Bia is also busy with her event planning company, Bia Productions, while continuing to DJ at L.A.’s hottest clubs and prepping the release of her EP this year. What’s next for the busy Bia? “To have my dreams and passions become a reality.”
