Fri 06.02.2009

DJsounds sits down with the self-effacing ‘chancer’ better known as the internationally renowned DJ/producer Nic Fanciulli for a chat in Riccione, Italy. Half Italian, half English, here Nic speaks about his background, spending time in his ‘second home’, DJing in Riccione, DJ set-ups and the importance of great sound systems. Other topics on the agenda in part one of this two part series include Nic’s production and remix work with Andy Chatterley, under the Skylark and Buick Project monikers. A creative partnership that has brought the guys such acclaim as numerous Essential New Tune rankings from BBC Radio 1 and a Grammy Award nomination for their remix work! Nic also discusses the development of his label, Saved Records, which was launched by Nic and Andy in 2005, and the impact of illegal downloading on the industry at large. Meanwhile DJ footage comes from Nic’s performance for Echos at Prince Club in Riccione. Words: LRC
