The Italian producer, who has helmed tracks and contributed remixes for everyone from Chris Brown ("Beautiful People") to Madonna ("Celebration"), kept track of his journey in a tour diary that he sent over to Spinner RPM.
From afterparties and impromptu beach raves to performing with Madonna, it sounds like the Rough Road was actually pretty smooth.
It was a total blast, three weeks of non-stop gigs and driving across America in a bus. Every single show was off the scale, I couldn't say any one was better than another. And, after the shows we would have exclusive after parties on the bus with some fans and the whole bus throbbed from the bass when we played. That was unbelievable. I spent a lot of time meeting some of my American fans-they are so energetic and enthusiastic they really made this tour special. One of the highlights was an impromptu beach gig in San Diego, which was wild.

I also managed to squeeze in time to open for Madonna in Dallas on one of the nights and then flew back to where the bus and the crew were to play my own show at night.
Most importantly we had a lot of fun, which is why we do this job, right? To play great music and enjoy ourselves, hoping that as many other people as possible will have fun, too.
