The project Italian Rockaz started early in 2006. It was the young producer Thomas Koch, who started this new and exciting project. Already in the summer 2006 he got the Italian Rockaz name on the map with his remix of the danish summer-track Summerday made by Puppet Generation. After the remix, Thomas began working on his own single. In November 2006 Thomas met a singer called Lil M aka. Mario Sciacca. At that time Mario was singing in hip-hop tracks, but He always had a passion for the moving dance music, and he was really impressed by Thomas' skills as a producer. Thomas and Mario started too work on some of Thomas ideas and after a single month the first single called il Mio Amore was written. After half a year and many hours in the studio, Balloon Records released Il Mio Amore in April 2007. After the first single Mario became a part of Italian Rockaz which then became a group consisting of both Thomas and Mario. After the number 1 hit il Mio Amore, the duo has released 2 number 1 hits, first La Donna and secondly Bella Italia.
