Although widely regarded as a member of the true A-list of dance music, both in terms of production, DJing and label management, it was a chance meeting led to Anthony Middleton and Luca Saporito, an audio engineer/musician and working dj respectively, becoming Audiofly back in 2002.
Middleton was, in typical boffin style, experimenting with live surroundsound while Saporito was acting as in-house music selector at prestigious London store Selfridges but the pair decided to down tools and throw everything at their shared love of house music.
A bold move, but one which immediately began to pay off. The Audiofly name started to crop up regularly in the London scene and beyond via a series of edits, remixes and releases for underground imprints such as Fantastic House
and Deleted. This initial hype led to Peace Division and DC10 resident Clive Henry to request an EP for the now legendary Low Pressings imprint.
This EP, entitled “Release Yourself” caught many an ear and coupled with the DJs growing reputation as DJs, propelled Audiofly to a new level.
Fairly quickly the pair’s groovy, melodic and undulating take on house music started to create a huge fan base, both in the press (DJ Magazine featured the duo on a special covermount CD), in clubs (Space Ibiza residency) and finally in production, with uber-imprints Get Physical, Mood Music, Kickboxer and Renaissance calling on their talents.
Now, the duo are pushing their sound even further with a gig diary that takes in the likes of Fabric, Warung, Amnesia and countless other world
reknowned clubs as well as a forthcoming album in the works but they still finding time to develop other artists via their own Supernature imprint.
Only one year old, and Supernature has been a launch pad for artist such as Ali Nasser, Alex Niggeman, Bearweasel, Amelie and Boris Horel and commands the respect of labels ten times its age while their Flying Circus parties have become the highlights of both the WMC and Sonar festivals and their similarly named radio show for Proton Radio is a continued success.
All of this sounds a lot, but Luca and Anthony are veritable steam trains of ideas and projects. Luca’s unrivalled enthusiasm, Anthony’s ability to think outside the box and an envious amount of talent to draw on mean there’s a
lot more to come from Audiofly and their “Familia”.
Fred P Bio-
Fred P has truly captivated the house fraternity of late with his deep as the ocean house cuts on his very own Soul People Music as well as on Underground Quality . The word deep has recently been used to a point of overkill but one man that word applies to in his character as well as the music he makes is Fred . Fred is no new comer either . he has been carving and working on music for the past 20 years . so there is knowledge and skill there !!! .
Fred , Jus Ed , Dj Qu & Levon Vincent became much more than just New York dj’s and producers . they truly captivated and captured audiences from all over the place with their highly intoxicating take on house music .
articles and heavy features came from the likes of Resident Advisor , Xlr8 and many more but Fred & the rest of the crew remain focused and truly humble . 2010 Looks like it will be a rich year for Fred what with ace releases already garnering high praise on Soul People alongside Move D & Steve Oh . Contribution on Laid . Fred is also constantly on the road with gigs in Berlin , New York , Belgrade , Frankfurt , London Ireland , Philly , Miami Winter Music Conference 2010 For Ra .e.t.c. & satisfied audiences and promoters all around and more release planned for this year only the sky is the limit for this great master builder . The devastatingly brilliant Deep Things Ep truly cemented Fred position as a producer of note . Little White Earbuds could not get enough of Fred and made his ace Structure cd album their number one album for 2010.
Patrice Bäumel Bio-
Some people are collectors. They collect foto's, books, records. They cherish the memories that are attached to these things, mentally re-living bygone days. The older and rarer an object is, the more valuable and fascinating it seems to them.
Patrice is not one of those people. No foto collection. Memory is baggage. No vinyl fetish. Tradition is limitation. Future, however, is a blank sheet of paper, waiting to be scribbled upon in the maddest colours imaginable. The excitement of the unknown is what motivates him to experiment and break free from the herd. Holy cows need to be slaughtered every now and then. Look closely and you will see blood on his hands...
