Filo & Peri ( Bronx, NY )
Consider their global chart success and you begin to gain the sense of scale New York based production team Filo & Peri are achieving. Having conquered the number one spot on the Billboard dance chart, plus an entry into the UK National Top 40, they continue to surprise to the upside. To think this is only the beginning for one of America’s top trance producers makes for a very exciting time in their lives. To top things off, the recent release of their debut album “Nightplay” has cemented their status as heavy hitters with an unparalleled 14/16 tracks entering the Beatport trance top 100 sales chart.
“The creation of our album was a winding journey full of obstacles to overcome,” says Bo. We were almost done with the first version of ‘Nightplay’ a year and half ago. During the final stages our entire studio burned down and we lost all of our work – it was devastating.” Domenick chimes in, “we were out of commission for six months until things could be re-built. During this I was diagnosed with a rare tumor on my voice box that had to be surgically removed. The case was published in many medical journals but thankfully everything went ok!” “We had to stay positive,” Bo interjects “and work our way back – day in and out. Everything happens for a reason and this twist of fate motivated us to create another even better album. There’s something here for everyone; from mainstream listeners to the hardcore clubbers. The emotions are very real – this is who we are.” Dom finishes things off, “we covered a lot of ground and explored many sounds. A lot of our success comes from thinking outside the box – taking risks with new ideas and combining them with something accessable. You can listen to the songs at home, and rock them in the club too, which is very important to us. Ultimately, this is how the dance scene will grow and continue to attract new listeners.”
Outside the studio Filo & Peri have been conducting business as usual, playing in the best nightclubs across the world. From Amnesia in Ibiza, to the far reaches of Luxy in Taiwan, and back in their home country at the Nocturnal Festival in L.A., their blend of euphoric trance, driving progressive house, and exclusive edits and mashups is winning them an international army of fans. Whether it’s banging beats or soaring vocals, nobody stands still when they take control of the dance floor. Not even Paul van Dyk, who is going to play numerous gigs with the guys in 2010.
“When we DJ its all about being a unique experience – we play many unique tracks that other DJ’s don’t play. Too many artists play it safe but our fans come to see us because they know they will get something special and different,” explains Domenick. “I think the best way to describe our DJ style is, ‘prime time.’ We are both high energy individuals with a unique taste that comes through in our sets.” “Whether it’s the moment we turn off the music to hear 50,000 people singing back our songs, or whether it’s the massive build up that blows the roof off the event – that is what people come to see us for,” concludes Bo.
It is obvious that Filo & Peri have come a long way from their humble beginnings. Having built up a solid catalog of productions throughout the years on the biggest labels around the world, Filo & Peri are equally respected by the top players in the industry. With unending support from Paul van Dyk, DJ Tiesto, Ferry Corsten, and Armin van Buuren, who recently invited the boys to play along side him for the ASOT 450 celebration in NYC, Filo & Peri are bringing American dance music to the forefront of the dance scene.
