Hailing from Jimbolia – a small town in Romania, Dani and Robert are the DJ and production duo who call themselvesNTFO. Why NTFO? Well, before they started to create music, they used to perform as a DJ act in their hometown club “Dolce Vita”, each under a different moniker – NTQ (Dani) and Fort (Robert). After a few years of spinning the decks in clubs here and there, the boys knew they had to take a step further into the electronic music industry and so they decided to produce their own unique sound, the sound of colorful deep house music, the sound of NTFO. The name is simply a result of their former aliases combined, using two letters from each.
Bursting onto the scene in January 2010 with the release of their first vinyl album, their records began to fly higher than expected, landing in the hands of some of the world’s best electronic music producers: “Allure” caught the eye of the Diynamic chief, Solomun who later on added them to his DIY Agency, while “Troops” entered Marco Carola’s sets and “Filter” peaked at #2 on Richie Hawtin’s beatport chart in 2009. Spring blossomed with the release of a new EP, hooked with three original tracks and a remix of Czubala Marcin from 8 bit, when in autumn the pair contributed toH.O.S.H.’s “Cash the Chord” EP with their own remix of the track, besides Audiojack and 360.
2011 brings Rhadow into the picture along with the “Conclusions” EP released on Sintope Digital Records, however in February, together with Optick, NTFO signed “Tremble” at Sintope Vinyl. The EP encompassed remixes from Alex Piccini & Older, Mucky Pups and Rhadow. Even before its official launch, the material was already supported by leading names in the industry like Joseph Capriati, Loco Dice, Lauhaus, Audiojack, Butch and Tom Budden. As the fall came again, Dani and Robert threw a new track on Diynamic records, “Feelings” – perhaps one of their hottest, most loveable tracks until now.
In February 2012 the much-hyped duo produced another stupefying track, in collaboration with H.O.S.H. and Malonda. “High”, featured on Diynamic 055 obviously lifted them up, whereas with its 58th announcement, the Hamburg-based label presented a three-track “Various Artists” EP which exposed “Nobody Else” – a collab between NTFO and Netherlands export Karmon. With its bouncy bassline and rhythmic pulse highlighted by spherically playful notes, the melody takes you on a wonderful journey, casting a spell over your dancing soul.
With the beginning of 2013, NTFO haughtily announced the launch of a new label, Jargon, a sublabel for Sintope Digital. The imprint looks to further showcase the latter of underground music, creating a sound which Robert describes as “rather old-school house, or maybe even techno”. Moreover, this year the boys prepare “Slagare vol.4”, another outstanding EP in collaboration with Rhadow (due out in April). In spring we’ll also see the first drop on Jargon, besides another one of their top-notch productions for Diynamic.
Romania’s electronic music industry is growing and NTFO are flowering! Keep an eye out for the two, they could be spinning around the country, or in Germany, the UK, Netherlands, Switzerland or even Brazil!
★Mihai Popoviciu >>>
Mihai Popoviciu, from Sibiu in Romania, is considered one of the most innovative eastern European producers of electronic music today. He was born in Romania in 1981 and was drawn to the fast-growing rave scene of the 90′s. He started producing music in 2001 being influenced by the techno and house virus and it took many years of experiments untill he came up with his first vinyl release on DJ Hell’s imprint Gigolo Records in 2005. Since then he has steadily added chapters to his personal success story with solo projects and those with partners like Markus Homm or Jay Bliss. In June 2007, his EP “First Contact” was released on Pascal Feos’ label Level Non Zero Recordings.
Mihai joined the Highgrade family together with Markus Homm in late 2007 and from then on the duo have had several successful releases on the Berlin based imprint like “Deaf Sniper”, “Lagoon” or “Urban Ballroom”. In 2009 the discographic activity of Mihai got very intense with releases on highly respected european labels such as Fear Of Flying, Hudd Traxx, Bang Bang or Diynamic. The club hit Bis Co (produced together with Markus and Jay Bliss) was featured in all major dance charts across Europe and confirmed once again his fine producing skills. When teaming up with Jay Bliss the duo call themselves Hermannstadt Collective, a dj and producing team that has made big waves on the dancefloors all over the world with tracks like “Raw Fruit”, “Thirst Day” or “Safety Match”. Mr. Popoviciu is the kind of producer that likes to innovate and to allways refine his varied sound pallette surprising the audience in the best way.
It’s not a big surprise that Mihai’s reputation as a DJ grew fast in the past years taking him to Europe’s most important clubs and venues. His flavourous dj sets have a distinctive peronal touch delivering you a perfectly balanced mixture of groovy beats, warm pads and musical emotiones that will get you addicted.
