Tell us how The Barking Dogs were born…
The project was born when Cristian and Nicola, two music lovers, met and immediately discovered that they loved to share their musical backgrounds.
How do combine your approaches to develop your sound?
It’s all about feeling. In the beginning it was difficult, but now we know each others’ tastes really well. Anyways, it’s always fun to challenge each other with different ideas.
What club or city do you love playing the most? Why?
In the Japanese clubs we realized how a real club should work. Great soundsystems, warm people, and the best DJs around. Our very favourite was the Guidance night at Unit club in Tokyo.
Let’s talk about Japan. What is it like to play there?
Japan is the perfect example of how wonderful nights can happen in super-small clubs or huge venues. It’s all about nice and polite people who love to enjoy the music while respecting others.
Aside from your passports, what makes you two Italian DJs?
Our Italian blood is a major feature and very distinctive. Everybody can feel it.
Most little kids don’t dream about becoming DJs. When you were little what did you want to be when you grew up?
We didn’t dream too much, as we both started very young. Nowadays everyone is a DJ. Just technique is not enough, just good music is not enough, just smiles, fashion and glamour are not enoguh. The right mix of all these things, in the right place and time is our highest ambition.
