Valerio Gomez de Ayala was born in Naples (Italy) in 1984, and he’s now based in Rome since 2011. He's one half of the dj/producer duo natural/electronic.system., the other half being his friend Antonio Giova. At the end of the '90s, he started collecting techno, IDM, ambient, experimental, house and electronic music records from all over the world. He was later influenced by the florid Neapolitan house/techno scene and inspired by the foreign djs coming to perform in Naples clubs.
He met his friend Antonio in high school. Together they founded the natural/electronic.system. project in order to express their personal definition of sound, mixing together different genres of electronic music during dj sets aimed at having organic textures of sound.
Over the years they became keen on the old and modern sound coming from another Italian city, Rome, where they started connections with local musicians such as Neel and Donato Dozzy.
At the same time, n/e.s. started performing dj sets in different Italian cities, while running some nights in Naples and private parties in the forests on the slope of the volcano Vesuvius.
In 2009, natural/electronic.system. took part to the mighty Labyrinth festival in Japan. Since 2013 Valerio is resident dj at the STRATI night in Rome.
