DJ/remixer/producer Gigi D'Agostino became seriously involved in music in the mid-'80s. After years of DJing, he settled in London to get closer to the British dance music scene. The Italian DJ started climbing charts with his first single, called "Bla Bla Bla," and soon after with a remixed version of Nik Kershaw's "Riddle." The smash "I'll Fly With You (L'Amour Toujours)" followed in 2001. Known as one of the pioneers of Mediterranean progressive house, Gigi D'Agostino teamed up with producer Gianfranco Bortolotti to release a 24-track compilation titled Il Grande Viaggio Di Gigi D'Agostino.
Gigi D'Agostino is known as one of the pioneers of Mediterranean progressive music, which consists of minimalistic sounds, Latin and Mediterannean melodies. In 1994 Gigi D'Agostino launched the NoiseMaker label, under the direction of the Italian house producer Gianfranco Bortolotti. The BXR Noise Maker label was created by Media Records to release Mediterranean progressive music. From 1993 to 1994 Gigi D'Agostino was a member of the group Voyager.

His music became more like Italodance and he stopped making Mediterranean progressive music. In 1999 Gigi D'Agostino was quite famous with Italodance hits like "L'Amour Toujours", "The Riddle", "La Passion" and "Another Way". In the same year Gigi was awarded with the "Best Producer in 1999" award at the Italian Dance Awards. In the year 2001 he was awarded with the "Best DJ-Producer of the Year" award at the Red Bull Awards in Italy.
Since 2003 Gigi D'Agostino started releasing Lento Violento tracks, this music style started to get its shape around 2006. Gigi D'Agostino created a lot of aliases to differentiate his new music style from his older Italodance work.
