Bouncy disco DJs with an Italian flare

Fare Soldi make it to Toronto

09.28.2011

Fare Soldi is one of my favourite DJ/producer teams today. They are from Italy and make hilarious, bouncy disco-house music that can make a person instantly happy.
 
You can download some of their remixes (their “frisco-disco” sound has kidnapped songs by Beyoncé, Duck Sauce, Chilly Gonzales, Duran Duran and Swedish House Mafia) and check out free mixtapes at fricodisco.com to get a taste of their goodness.
 
This fall, they have embarked on their first North American tour and are as delirious as kids in a candy store about it. I asked them a few quick questions about the tour, their inspiration and their embarrassing dancing skills. If their music and this interview doesn’t convince you that they are worth checking out, I suggest checking your pulse because you might be dead.
 
 
Phil Villeneuve: What are your biggest influences when creating your music?
Fare Soldi: Good music, bad music and big, hairy mustaches.
 
PV: On your latest song from your new EP, you command people to dance. Do you find people usually follow orders at shows? What happens if they don’t? 
FS: Our cruel commands are not so complex, so it's quite easy to do it the right way. Anyway, if somebody doesn't, we usually report that to the teacher.
 
PV: Are you good dancers yourself?
FS: Okay, 12 years of DJing around the world and finally somebody busted us with the most painful question. We hope you're feeling good now.
 
PV: Can you describe the studio space where you create your music?
FS: Renzo Piano once defined our studio "a room." We really appreciated his ability to find the right and inspiring words.
 
PV: Your name means “making money” in Italian; is that a big part of what you do?
FS: No, it's just the part that keeps our lawyers quiet.
 
PV: What is the Italian DJ scene like? Canadian gays want to know.
FS: There are some DJs and tons of complex carbohydrates. But this is the perfect chance to stop that rumour about Italian DJs using pizzas instead of turntables to perform. No, that's not true. We do it just when doing rehearsals.
 
PV: Your music and remixes have a great sense of humour. I love that about your stuff. Do you have to remind yourselves not to take things very seriously? I picture some DJs who seem very serious all the time and think that must suck.
FS: People don't understand that it takes much more hard work to be funny and good DJs. Because we have to match up the rhythm of their laughing with our beats, and of course the melody of the track should be in tune with the laughing. The whole process is based on an algorithm that was discovered in Geneva, Switzerland, many many years ago. Scientists realized it was totally useless, so they sent it to us as a Merry Christmas present.
 
PV: This is your first tour in North America. What are your thoughts so far?
FS: "Hey, this is our first tour in North America!"
 
PV: Have you been to Canada before?
FS: No, Andrea Bargnani [cute Italian basketball player with the Raptors] always refuses to host us. He always says that he has a small couch. Mmmh, come on Andrea, we don't buy this story.
 
PV: Can you explain the name of the tour?
FS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJI8BkNYOJY
 

Fare Soldi play on Fri, Sept 30 at Czehoski, 678 Queen St W.

      Visca la inèrcia Newtoniana!!!! .Jo vaig començar per la necessitat de deixar per escrit les idees que em bullien pel cap després de veure una pel·lícula. Que les llegeixin o no no és el que més em preocupa. Únicament es tracta de deixar una opinió a l’abast de tothom i que tothom pugui deixar la seva pròpia opinió.

      Animo Josep, aguanta, no cedas. Todo el apoyo del matadero ERRALDE. Matadero el cual también ha tenido que aguantar la presión sanitario-politico-económica de la clase que no quiere cambiar nada y por eso nunca actúan. Curiosa clase esta que pertenece a todos los grupos políticos. Josep, las persona honestas y las creen en lo que dicen deben de tener todo el apoyo. Por mi parte, cuenta conmigo para lo que quieras. Si quieres les mando a las industrias farmaceúticas y al Parlament Catalan unos chuletones de buey soberanos. ¿ Sabrán lo que es eso?
