| AUDIOFLY |
||Audiofly are a DJ/producer duo, Luca Saporito and Anthony Middleton. |
They met and started working together in the spring of 2002 and embarked on a prolific partnership based on their shared musical styles and experiences on the global DJ circuit.
Their combined talents have created a powerful, somewhat experimental and original style of music, (some have called it a ‘deadly Techno meets Electronic House’) very current on the underground club scene right now.
Their first remix production Live Love first released in February 2004, on Fantastic House, was on the playlist of such DJ’s as Smokin Jo, Steve Lawler, DJ Ralf, Victor Calderone & Danny Tenaglia to name a few...the track has also been featured on several compilations including Lights Out 2, & Amnesia Ibiza amongst others...
The rest of 2004 saw several more releases which slowly built and developed both the reputation and also production values of Audiofly.
Early 2005 saw multiple Audiofly releases, signed to some of the hottest labels around...
Release Yourself came out on the legendary Low Pressings (Single of the Week in 7 Update Magazine and featured on the Kiss 100 playlist).
Do You Hear? (on Nic Fanciulli’s ‘Deleted Records label with a remix by Zoo Brazil)
Mind Twista/I Can’t Remember on Fantastic House featured for 3 consecutive weeks on Pete Tong’s Essential Selection.
Then, Rockin It on Jackit Records featured a remix by Serge Santiago
Circles featuring talented Jazz vocalist Priscilla … out on Adrift, has become another underground monster …released just in time for Miami WMC 2006 , the track has become a timeless anthem, championed by the likes of Sasha, Sister Bliss and Nick Fanciulli.
Audiofly started a new project entitled Audiofly X this year, which covers the deeper and minimal values of house music which has been gathering a lot of momentum on the more UNDERGROUND scene recently.
Their first EP called Stolen Goods was signed to SAW Recordings and features on Satoshi Tomie’s 3D comp.
The next release, Lost on Moodmusic was just released and immediately went into the top 10 sellers on Beatport for a couple of weeks.
The current Audiofly X track 4Play (on German tech house label Get Physical’s 60th release)has also been met with some serious support with the first pressing selling out in an hour.
In terms of remixes, Audiofly are becoming very sought after producers, and last year saw them remixing several underground anthems.
Here’s a selection of Audiofly remixes;
Different Gear’s summer single Worry on Lazy Eye records (Feaured on Pete Tongs Essential selection,and a DC10 Anthem last summer)

The new Yoshimoto single, Want You to Hear me which is due in November.
Kenzo- Working it Out, which has been floating around on mp3 for almost a year now and is still being played by many top DJs as a secret weapon….not for much longer as it’s due out before the end of 2006.
Lastly, look out for the Audiofly remix of Claude Von Stroke - The Whistler also due out this December, and a remix of DJ Remo’s Mizar, out on Steve Lawler’s label VIVA (plays by Satoshi, Deep Dish, Tiga, Sasha and Digweed.

On home turf , they play monthly at Players (AKA/The END), and are regular guests at Mulletover, London’s only ‘real’ secret warehouse bash….
THE MIX CD - UNDULATIONS 2
Undualtions 2, the follow-up to the highly successful compilation on Satoshi Tomie and Hector Romero’s SAW Recordings was released in November. This compilation is the first time Audiofly get to let loose on a mix album. It is a solid blend of their own tracks, remixes and other material that Audiofly is currently spinning in their sets.
It’s a high energy affair, with slick beats and beautiful melodies…. A journey through a night in 70 minutes……
“Collaborations are a way of bringing out different aspects of our musical tastes, through working with others we are inspired to move in new and interesting directions….”
Current Projects include:-
Sleeper Thief – A collab with DJ Miss Jools which is getting acclaim from DJs such as Dominic Eulberg, Ali Schwarz (Tiefschwarz), Jamie Jones, Funk D’Void, Damian Lazarus and Agoria, to name a few…..The first EP Freefall (64 records) was featured in IDJ and was the Update magazines essential Techno tune (Feb2006).
The second release, “Chasing You” is signed to Anja Schneider’s “Mobilee” and is to be released in August/September 2006….here is already a massive hype building up in front of this track!
Recently, they have remixed several projects including:
Phonique’s “What I fake”, and
Eyerer and Chopstix “Haunting”
Rekleiner – Is Audiofly’s 3rd moniker. Working alongside Mulletover’s Stuart Geddes, they have developed a very melodic, electronic yet driving house experience. The first single was instantly signed to Moodmusic in Germany and was championed by DJ Ewan Pearson and featured on Satoshi Tomie’s new Renaissance 3D compilation.
The second release, The State of Things was signed to German uber-cool label Connaisseur. Released in July 2006, the EP has been an instant success and was Beatport’s most downloaded track for a period.
Recently, they have remixed several projects including:
Sebastian Roya - Compresion
Christian Parpaduru - Sharing Transparently
Adultnapper - Flourescent
Opus Ink is a new collaboration with Satoshi Tomie which looks set to make some serious waves. Their first outing, The Darkroomboot Ep is a monstrous number, which unites elements of both their unique styles, a Carl Craig-esque affair…in demand by a lot of DJs right now….but impossible to get hold of….to be released on SAW Recordings later this year.
Loose Lips - This is a project between the boys and Scarlett Etienne that worked as soon as they hit the studio together. The first track Loose Lips Sync Ships was instantly snapped up by Kick Boxer with the follow-up Earsex coming out on Tsuba in December, with a remix by Sian.
