With 13 years behind them as a creative partnership Anthony Middleton and Luca Saporito AKA Audiofly have accumulated unparalleled experience through their endeavours and continue to put everything into maintaining their careers at the highest level. After a chance meeting in 2002, the two men have established a creative empire, which includes two record labels, a global party brand and fashion. A constant source of positive energy, Audiofly retain a focus on the underground with the depth of knowledge to confidently explore new terrains.
After establishing themselves within the house and techno world as a potent partnership, Audiofly relocated from London to Barcelona in 2008. A hub for many of their peers, “A home for the romantics,” as Anthony puts it. In the coastal city they found the slower pace of life and bright, sunny climate to be the perfect catalyst behind their creative output, fuelling their progression both as artists and businessmen.
With over a decade of experience Audiofly’s work ethic remains high, they have taken the long road, preferring to retain their authenticity rather than sell out and milk the ‘trendiest’ sound in order to make a quick buck. Over the years they have avoided limiting themselves to one style, never making it easy for themselves but the long game provides a far more satisfying result and sets the true artists apart from those who are driven purely by ego and financial gain.
Anthony and Luca have been working harder than ever recently, with a second artist album in the works following on from 2011 long-player ‘Follow My Liebe’. This time around they’re incorporating live instrumentation and singers, demonstrating their broad musical range and diversity and pushing their artistic capabilities. It’s a project that will further bolster their reputation for experimentation and staunch belief in staying true to themselves.
Alongside their own musical careers, Audiofly run two labels. The first, Supernature, serves as a platform to represent both their musical vision and their ability to discover and nurture new talent. Over the years, Audiofly have been responsible for supporting the careers of artists such as Dance Spirit and Bedouin, among others, lending their experience to providing them with the necessary skills to succeed in this industry.
Meanwhile, Maison D’Etre is evolving into a vinyl-only platform, embodying the more traditional aspects of Audiofly’s ethos while, at the same time, the music direction is moving towards less traditional sphere with a series of intriguing collaborations and exciting new sounds in the pipeline.
On top of that, their party, Flying Circus, remains the jewel in the crown at many of the world’s biggest music events; WMC, Sonar Week, ADE and more, with a firm emphasis on quality over quantity. Making each event a proper show for its clientele is paramount for the duo as they uphold the core values of the party brand, while injecting their creative flair into making it the very best it can be.
The aim with all of these outlets is to create a tight-knit group of like-minded friends; a community of artists who inspire one another and work towards a united goal – to be the best they can be and to provide the partygoing public with an unforgettable experience.
Each of these endeavours represents a different branch of the Audiofly tree. Above all else, positivity, creativity and a clear vision remain the core elements that bind all of Audiofly’s enterprises together and they are the foundation of partnership that remains as scintillating now as it was 13 years ago when it was first formed.
