When did you first meet and collaborate?

About 10 years ago we decided to join and work together.

What is your music genre and why do you choose that? Then how is the development of EDM in your country?

We think our music is closer to Progressive House. Yes, we love Melody and Progressive House groove. In Italy has not had a music culture big enough compared to other countries. Everything is affected from the outside.

Who DJ do you like the game during the stage?

We both love Hardwell and also Avicii. They have a name that is already known to many people around the world with their outstanding work.

What makes you want to be a DJ?

The passion for music and our love that we always have for DJ equipment consoles since we were teenagers.

What do you think is the difference between clubbers in Asia and in Europe?

We feel there is not much difference. Many clubs that we go to have a sound system that is complete and quality. Similarly, the crowd is present. Many young people came with great passionate to enjoy our music.

Who have been some of your influences throughout the years, both inside and outside of the dance music scene?

We are great fans of Swedish House Mafia, everything they did impressed us, there was always something interesting about their music, never predictable, and we saw them as three great friends who joined their ideas to create something incredible.
What is the happiest moment you ever felt?

See how people have fun and follow you during the set.

Your track "X-Press" was one of, if not the biggest Doorn Records’ release. What was the idea and process behind the track? Did you expect it to become such a major festival hit?

At the beginning, we had the groove as an idea; we really liked how it sounded so kept it and decided to create something that would make everything more interesting. Looking in various libraries, we got hit by a particular loop which match perfectly with our idea, so we brought it on Logic and we started editing this sound that ended up being the winning part of “X-Press”. We weren’t expecting such huge support for “X-Press”, bringing together so many DJs in this musical moment is very hard, so we’re happy we could do that.

If you are not a DJ, what are you choosing?
Maybe be a basketball player. That's pretty easy as it seems.

What are some of your favorite highlights of 2016?

One of the best moment of 2016 are our fans which sent us video of them dancing to X-Press played in the biggest festivals of the world, from Miami to Ibiza.
