Touch The Wood: an underground reality by Marco G. & Mr. Kite. Since 2007, their goal has been to create and innovate, leading anyone who reaches out to their vision to be rapidly projected into an ever-evolving future.
Involved in the Italian and international music scene for years, they turn every show into a way of shouting out to the world their musical aptitude and continuous desire to reinvent themselves.
Despite continuous research and innovation, the past never dies, instead it becomes the source for the search for unique creative solutions.
Their sound is a mix of hip hop, uk drill, trap, soul and baile funk, full of edits, with a strong desire to make their mark, to reveal an often-hidden world.

Matteo Porcarelli, also known as Matthew Wrld, has been a part of the TTW mob since summer 2020, but he approached to it long before, in 2018. His journey with Touch The Wood started almost by chance:”I began going to their events alone and always positioned myself behind the console because the energy that the "creators" - Marco G. and Mr Kite - transmitted fascinated me from the beginning. Sometimes it seemed as if they became one with each other and finally with the console. I'm proud to be part of the best collective in Italy when it comes to hip-hop/trap/edit/baile scene. I can't wait to make you passionate about my DJ sets, just like the founders did with me
