Hailing from Taranto in Southern Italy and made up of Daniele Aprile and Mario Roberti, Fideles is renowned for shaping music that perfectly balances epic and melodic. They have produced a remix of Monolink’s track “Otherside” for release on Embassy One Records which adds even more depth and atmospheric synths to the already ethereal track by the German electronic music mainstay.
Paired with Monolink‘s highly emotional lyrics and soothing vocals, Fideles‘ heavy bass and melodic riffs have given the track an energetic, clubby alter-ego that instantly creates dance floor hysteria. Jam-packed with tribalistic synth hooks, the almost seven-minute-long track transcends through a journey of powerful soundscapes.
While led by a driving bassline, the Italian duo’s subtle elements layered throughout, gradually building up emotion and energy as it progresses. The remix perfectly resonates with Monolink‘s lyrics asking “Am I losing my mind? Welcome to the other side” with the track’s bassline slowly building up until the almost otherworldly hook comes into play.
Fideles have already made their mark on the global dance music scene through releases on a wide-ranging pool of imprints like Bedrock, Poker Flat, Stil Vor Talent and more recently Afterlife, Innervisions and Correspondant. With their signature sound of combining a potent mix of mesmerizing layers, hypnotic percussion and euphoric swells, Fideles have drawn the interest of the underground scene’s most influential names such as Laurent Garnier, Solomun, and Job Jobse.
In 2018, their single “Resonant” was included on Tale Of Us‘ fabric97 compilation CD, whilst “Lotus” was featured on Afterlife‘s ‘Realm Of Consciousness‘ Compilation.
With over a dozen years of experience in their back pockets, Fideles are only aiming upwards, with more of their timeless pieces set to enchant dance floors worldwide.
German singer-songwriter and electronic music producer Monolink is a household name in the scene due to being a fascinating and versatile musician with a narrative structure of songs that compels the forward thrust of electronic rhythms. Guitar chords merge into synthetic pad sounds, hypnotic bass vibrations meet emotional vocal parts, and passionate physicality meets sublime stimulation for the mind.
