This project has already launched.

My name is Jk Lloyd (Giancarlo Loi),  I'm a music producer, musician and sound engineer from Sardinia Island,(Italy), where I was born November 17, 1968.

I’ve been making music since I was 6 years old. 

When I was 6 I ask to my father to buy me a piano and a telescope, so I start to play music watching the sky.

My passions are music, animals, cooking, taking pictures, videos and travel.

I started working at a private radio as Dj when i was 11 years old.

Passionate about music since childhood I started listening to Jean Michel Jarre (of which I made a remix of a track from his album Electronica 2), Vangelis, Depeche mode, Frankie goes to hollywood, Genesis, Talk Talk, Dire straits, Roxy music, Brian Eno, David Bowie, Prince, Michael Jackson, The cure, Qeen,  Rod Stewart, Abba, Rolling stones, John Lennon,  Giorgio Moroder, Donna Summer, Blondie, Pink floyd, and most of all that the music industry proposed and much classical music. I started collecting vinyl and create my music when I was 12.

I started to play live with samplers and keyboards in 1987 in sardinian clubs 

(you can listen to some gigs on my mixcloud or download Onirikalab iTunes podcast), and in 1990 I start to play live in Milan where I produced my first track.

After making some experimental tracks that I did live at Rolling Stone in Milan, (PhotophobiaSubmarineTitanic, You will be mineMy LoveLochness,  Space KaddozzaHardbeatOver Me, produced by a record company close to Milano where I worked with U2's sound engineer John Grimes), I focused on the genre that I liked the most: Classical music with dance beats. After spending more than a year looking for a record company that believed in my project, finally in September of 1995 I produced Pyramid with the alias Alex RemarkOnirika E.P. and Divina commedia with the aliases of Jk Lloyd – Valoy, and a remix of “Return to russia” of Kitaro with the alias “Traveller”. These four projects have opened up the market to the music genre called "Dream", which have been part also Robert Miles (Children) and DJ Dado (X-files). In December of 1995 I created my record label I called Onirika in which I produced tracks that have been successful and have become points of reference for trance music in Europe. The EventHuman TripFaithPyramids of GizaMarinesWhiteWorld ( followed by the homonymous WhiteWorld compilation)NephertityStelleLegendaVirusSpace 900. The Met-rThe Event RmxFaith RmxIt's dangerousThe event feat IdhaOzymandias, Opus II. At the same time a lot of productions under the others Onirikalab's sub labels which SecretsOrbits to moonRealtà virtuale compilationThe Sound of SysAnastasisRed Side, and all tracks published on excalibur Label, that is one of the sublabels of onirikalab. few compilations called Pura dream and Pura progressiveProgressive alarmChristmas DreamJk Lloyd also appear in many compilations.

 With the arrival of digital stores the label changed its name to Onirikalab (you can have a look to Onirikalab's youtube channell). Onirikalab also includes other labels in which they were produced and published songs of different genres, from techno to chill out, keeping hand just inside onirikalab the genre Dream and experimental. After the success of Pyramid, the second single from Alex remark, Nephertity has been quite successful. 

Many are the musical collaborations, live gigs and remix produced  and many are the compilations in which the tracks have been placed in the following years.

In 2004, after the crisis hit the music record industry I started to produce the double album H.o.D. (History of dream) which was published in August of 2006. The project included 10 tracks and 10 original tracks in instrumental version without rhythm, so chill out. In September of 2006 the album and some tracks came in first place in itunes chart singles and albums and History of dream in the third position of selling chart in Italy

In recent years I have continued to experiment and produce different albums and singles, of which you can listen to the discography published below. Among the latest tracks produced, in 2015 I made the remix of the song "Grand Central" from the soundtrack of "K Pax" movie with Kevin spacey and Jeff Bridges.
