DANDI & UGO / Italo Business, Youth-AM / Italy
Dandi & Ugo's journey began in 1989. In Italy electronic music started to move its first steps simultaneously. This duo is based on a strong friendship and a huge common love for clubbing, both elements led these artists to express themselves with an incredible energy canalized into explosive and mental dj sets. Four hands become two, two hearts become one. Acid House meets Detroit Techno, deep fat basses build Dandi & Ugo's identity scanning their highly recognizable performances.
“Beat Conductor” (february 2005), presented by Ricky Montanari on “Re-vox”, distribuited by “Level One” is the first brick of their intense career as productors. One year later, together with Piatto, they started their own project, Italo Business, and the label quickly became an icon, producing famous artists as Angy Kore, Umek, Octave, Hackler & Kuch, Spartaque, Pappenheimer, Mike Maass, M.I.D.I., Sebastian Groth.
Great labels like Suara, Naked Lunch, 1605, Great Stuff Recordings, Sleaze Records, Wild and Nachtstrom Schallplatten choose them to represent their techno vision. Richie Hawtin's legendary label Minus published their single “Alternative Way” (2013) in the various artists album “Minmax”.
At the beginning of their career Dandi & Ugo had the chance to exhibit themselves around the most famous venues all over Italy ( Cocoricò, Peter Pan, Les Folies de Pigalle, Echoes Liz Music Club.) and nowadays they perform across clubs (Lehmann Club, Elektrokuche, Inox, Butan Club, Tunnel, Borderline, MS Connexion, Circus Club in Montreal) and festivals of the whole Europe. Their remarkable apparences at Ruhr in Love, Nature One, Syndacate (Germany) and Beat Times (Mexico) tell the story of an affirmed duo required on a large scale.
