Born into the information age, when everything is a mouse click away has made life for everyone much easier. The internet can bring you information only expensive text books use to, it can make the average joe famous over night, and it can bring people together from across distant oceans. Some would say it makes the DJ’s life easier; vinyl’s that used to be bought in record stores after hours of searching are now transferred to your PC in seconds, it makes marketing almost cost free and it brings fellow musically inclined people together.
This is how Miki Stefanoski (Inox) and Dimce Filiposki (Dido) met 7 years ago, over a chat service talking about the music they both love. Now living in the same city a short distance from each other, many nights are spent in Inox’s home studio sharing ideas, creating tracks and mixes to be shared with anyone willing to listen. And there are a lot of people who want to listen! Their tracks have been played and supported by Laurent Garnier, Luke Fair, Desyn Masiello, Demi, Ricky Ryan, 16bit Lolitas ,Leigh Morgan, Nacho Marco, Spiritchaser, Eelke Klein, Satoshi Fumi, Ross Couch, James Talk, Kosmas Epsilon, Manuel Tur, Dana Bergquist, Harry Peat, Steve Mill, Spin Science, Sebastian Davidson, Scope, Add2Basket, Tom Morgan, Hernan Cerbello, Somnus Corporation, and Mike Haddad.
Where does a passion come from? How does it get to the point where once you find it its all you want to do? Well in Macedonia at a tender young age of 11, Dido found his passion when he was skipping classes to seek out music at his local record store. What he found that he liked best, was house music. At about the same time Inox, being the creative person he is, he’s always looking for ways to make something new. He found his passion creating music while playing around with production software on his home computer in the early ‘90’s.
Latent means "potentially existing but not yet realized." In the two years since Inox and Dido have started mixing together their potential has grown and is now being realized. What was a dream of producing proper house music is now a reality. Their first track ‘Good Morning’ woke everyone up including Ricky Ryan who used it for his mixed compilation on Proton Radio two years ago. Since then their tracks have been signed to numerous labels including Proton Music, Sick Watona, Deepology Digital, Witty Tunes, Avangardia, Fragile Recordings, Outside The Box Music, Dot Dot Records, Pitch Music, Cabrio Records, and Body Rhythm Black. This past year they received a lot of accolades for their last remix for Deepology Digital on Soufinder called ‘Distant Voices’. Stay tuned for some hot new ep's on Proton Music, Deepology Digital & Witty Tunes early this year.
Now their shared passion has come together to create one of the freshest duos on the scene today. Playing all over the Balkans from Slovenia to Bulgaria and even Dubai they are proving that a true passion can take you places. They both understand what it takes to move a crowd whether they are warming up for someone like Luke Fair or head-lining a full night set “Its easy to select 20 peak-time bombs and play a 2 hour set but in a 5 or 6 hour set you really need to program the timing. It’s not good to push too much at the beginning, you have to keep the crowd interested in your music”. Time and time again they have proved that their professionalism and passion keeps the crowd not only attracted to the sounds bellowing out of the speakers but glued to the dance floor!
