Dubfluss is a project born from the friendship between two guys from Vicenza (near Venice), Mattia Bellon and Marco Fiuma. The project came to life through an exchange of views and ideas shared in the world of club music in various lines of deep, tech and techno. Their passion led them to HUND (Underground Music Movement) where they’ve become resident DJ’s.
Dubfluss are distinguished by a carefully selected music which is always different and every time right for the occasion. Their music was released on various digital as well as vinyl labels such as HUND Records, Kina Music, Arupa Music, Serialism, Moan and Sleepless Musik just to name a few. In their short but intense career, the duo managed to share decks with established artists such as Ilario Alicante, Bella Sarris, Hector, Kerri Chandler, Rich NxT, Seb Zito, Marco Faraone, Dubfire and many others.
What was the funniest / most bizarre request you’ve ever had while playing?
Hmm… we don’t remember something strange honestly. Two nice things were when Hector asked us to do b2b during an afterparty and when we were in Rimini, Rich NxT and Dan Farserelli left us to play nearly 30 minutes more because they liked our warm up.
Can you describe your studio setup for us?
Usually, we combine samples and vst’s with our gear. We have a set up that includes Tanzbar drum machines, Analog 4 and a Mother-32.
Could you tell us the story about your first gig?
Our first gig was special because it coincided with our HUND debut and it was the famous 21st December back in 2012; it’s the date where the World was supposed to end so at midnight we dropped a pure bomb for the dancefloor haha it was so funny 🙂
Name three artists that currently inspire you.
Archie Hamilton, Fabe and Raresh.
Recall the worst experience of ‘killing the vibe’ in the club.
Worst experience was at a party in a hill, there were crazy vibes on the dancefloor until a guy in front of us shared his gin tonic with one of the CDJ’s (it was our console so you can imagine our faces when we saw that).
What do you do before and after your set?
Before a set we are on the dancefloor, after a set we are again on the dancefloor but this time with a drink 🙂
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Asked to play at the country fair in front of mostly farmers that didn’t have any idea about what was house music. Fortunately for us, we’ve had another gig so the owners replaced us with a “normal” DJ that made karaoke.
What are your favourite labels at the moment?
Hund Records (where we are co-owners), Viceversa and Rowle; a new one that has big plans for the next year.
Imagine a cold winter, a fireplace and two glasses of wine—what song would you play?
The XX – Intro could be a good one.
Last but not least. What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
For sure it was the simplest and most logical advice. Something that everyone tells you but you don’t give it the right weight:” be always yourself, make music only for your pleasure without limits or mental blocks, because music is something you have inside and comes from your heart and your mind. It could be the simplest thing but since we just recently really started to apply this basic thing, everything now has a better taste.”
