Lula Circus is a “house oriented” electronic music project born in October 2008 from two Italian producers.
The anonymous nature of its concept wants to put the focus entirely on the sound by keeping the real identity of the two producers a secret. A bet, a game, just like in a Lynch circus where captivating music drags into far-away trips.
Party animals, DJ’s, producers, owners of one of the best record shops in Milano. The Barking Dogs is a musical project started in 2006 by Cristian Croce and Nicola Mazzetti. The Barking Dogs have developed, throughout the years working as dj’s, their own taste and style and with their dj-sets they spread the same energy and passion they put in their musical research. During the season 2009/2010 they have been resident dj’s at the famous Plastic club in Milan – a legendary venue that gives the duo the possibility to continuosly improve on their “four hands on a mixer” skills. Their style has its roots in original disco and old-school house music, deeply influenced from different cultural contaminations coming from both past sounds and new stuff. Rock and Tech crossed with groovy and soulful beats, riding the awesome vibes that only a vinyl groove under a needle can give. Their first release is a 10″ limited edition white label “Re-incantation”, a Balearic trip with a warm beat, quickly sold-out in Italy and Europe. Following it up are the successful hit “The guitar man” with a dirtier old-school sound and their third release, “Hi-nrg”. In 2009 comes the fourth release “It’s What” signed here on Mad On The Moon records and remixed by Phillip Lauer on the B-side. 2010 is for the duo a prolific year of collaborations: with Hard Ton on Gomma Records and with singer and sax-player Jessie Evans for the “Versus” project, their second release on Mad On The Moon. As managers and resident djs of the Discosafari Nights, The Barking Dogs promote the Italian and international disco-house movement, collaborating with the most significant names of the underground field and always with support from djs like Severino (Horse Meat Disco) , Prins Thomas, James Murphy, Ellen Allien and Todd Terje.
Founder of Pizzico Records (ambient & fool disco oriented trademark), Billy decided to buy a couple of Technics 1200 in 1994 thanks to the mid-nineties electronic music explosion. Heavily conditioned by 90’s ambient and dance style, acid jazz, old and dusty disco vibes, movie soundtracks and 8’s new wave, his mixture secretly suggests to go through musical genres and seems to be plunged into underground music subpoenas. Obsessed by weird cinema Billy still try to make his own battle against conformism (which still looks well dressed and well thinking) through his music, just looking like a fighting squatter trapped in a sci-fi cult movie: his synthesizers are laser guns, his jeans jacket is ripped off cause of the star battle, his bandana is totally wet, at the end of the movie Billy will discover that the real enemy dwells in his soul. End credits.
We can quite surely say that Billy’s music sounds postmodern but we hope it will never become subcultural.

AGIO is the project of Andrea Gabriele and Marco Mazzei, two musicians from Pescara, Italy.
They keep workshops and lectures in art and music schools, make installations on the interaction between visuals and sounds. They are used to play festivals like Dissonanze, Electric Elephant and Netmage but feel confortable in auditoriums and more academic spaces too. Andrea is also a member of Clap Rules and Marco is the voice you heard in their full lenght “Golden Hands”.

DISCO NOT DISCO | LES ROBOTS DE LA LUNE
THE HEELS OF LOVE – BRIOSKI – SVPERFINE
After a flamboyant beginning with Fabrizio Mammarella, Paul White and Mo’ Colours and a forced two week stop Discosafari is back in the house again at Smoking Kills Club. This week with Joung Marco from Rush Hour and Robotalco and Sapo from the Mad On The Moon crew.
We released Holiday In Arabia first EP one year ago. Since then most of our artists and friends have worked their own private versions off the originals for their club sets.
Here we release four of the best we have so far. Crimea X with their cosmic wanderings, Simone Fedi heading into Techno, The Heels Of Love in Deep House attitude and Billy Bogus’ druggie House.
In just two years Lula Circus have released tracks on Resopal, Ostwind, Acker, Broquade. They have also played festivals and cult venues like Maria Am Ostbahnhof and Fabric. But above all they have a Lynch reference in their name so we immediatly asked them to join us.
The original comes with three reworked versions. A disco-dub cut by Italo-Berlinese duo Discodromo, a deep-house version with a classic feel by The Heels Of Love and an old school dancefloor bomb by In Flagranti.
