Massimo Clike was born in Italy in 1979. His first approach to music takes place in 1997, when he begnis to work as a hip-hop DJ and producer but in 2001 he changes radically, switching to electronic dance music, mixing breakbeat, house and electro. As a pioneer of minimal, he influenced many of his dj friends in Barcelona, the city where he lives nowadays. In September of 2010, with his first realease on 7 oz. Records, he begins his career as a dance music producer.
Currently, Clike pours the dancefloors of Barcelona with house, deep house as well as deep tech and tech house.
Matteo Floris was born in Cagliari (Sardinia, Italy) in 1986. He started clubbing when he was very young and grows his passion for music since he began playing drums at electronic parties. Then he started selecting and mixing his favourite tracks in own sets, ranging bewtween house, minimal and techno sonority.
After that he gained his interest in producing creating his personal sound combining a lot of drums and percussion with deep vocals and atmospheres, minimal and ambient sounds to valorise the most important element: the rhythm.
Born in Buenos Aires, he had his first approach to music at the age of 10 with guitar. Four years later inspired by his brother he started playing drums. He played in underground bands as a drummer and began to play percussion instruments (congas, bongo drums, kettledrums with afro-Latin and afro- Brazilian rhythms). He arrived at 21 to Barcelona where he made up his mind to take his skill to an academic level and he signed up for the music school “El Aula”.
On summer of 2003, he started to be in touch with the turntables playing the DJ in Ibiza.
And then in 2004 he threw many private parties in Barcelona: the succesfull “Sunset Sound Sessions” at the Mochima Bar (Nueva Marbella beach), hosting a number of local and international artists. Performing at the “Friday I’m in Love” parties at DAF club and later he decided to take advantage of beach dancing- with Level 0 parties at the Amparo “chiringuito” on the Marbella Playa, definitely setting a new trend. Simultaneously he became the resident DJ and manager of one of the main Barcelona’s after hours parties with the Burning Sessions @ Bang Bang! and later on he opened his own studio, Studio 52.
When 2006 began, he ran the Mayday! parties every Tuesday at Guru and when the summer began to poke out we returned to the environment where he feels like a fish in the water: the beach. That was how Fake Out! parties were launched at the Nueva Ola chiringuito, again on La Nueva Marbella beach where many well known artists were invited: Michael Mayer, Superpitcher, Anja Schnaider, Tobias Thomas, Pan-Pot, Lee Van Dowski…
Turko is nowadays one of the great figures of Barcelona’s night. He performed his high quality sessions at the most emblematic places such as Otto Sutz, City Hall, Fellini, La Terrraza, LeKashbash, DAF, Sidecar, La Terrrazza, Liquid, The One, Mondo…
At present, Turko is mostly focused on his work as a music producer as well as on the art and general production of Fake Out! parties which usually take place at Row 14, City Hall, Boulevard, Chiringuito Calamar, Th, Mondo Club, the One Barcelona…
He’s also holding conferences and workshops for the German company Native Instrumenst, about the products of its DJ line.
A fusion of soul melody and emotion. Since 2004, FakeOut! has built up a reputation as one of the leaders of Barcelona’s nightlife, running the city’s best parties… all year round.History •
A mixture of music, soul and feelings.
Even though Fake Out! started in the European summer of 2006, we can’t leave aside the Level 0 and the Sunset Sound sessions parties -former projects created and promoted by some members of the current Fake Out! crew- where , little by little, the foundations of what Fake Out! Is now, were laid.
We can say that, without intention (or with it), a special space was established in the Barcelona’s electronic music circuit for artists, professionals and the general public to meet. All in such an exceptional natural environment as the Mediterranean beach could be, where one could go for a splash at the sea, sunburn on the sand and dance wearing your swimshorts. A unique atmosphere festivity.
The music selection, in charge of our resident DJs or our special guests, together with the sound of the waves made the perfect soundtrack for a wonderful time under the stars enjoying the newest tendencies in electronic dance music reference. The most relevant international electronic artists also said ..hi..in our parties, thrilling us to their performances, leaving a great impression in which was the best, musically speaking, seasons.
It’s, then, the positive evolution, together with the acceptance from the public, what led Fake Out! parties to take place in the most important and best known clubs in Barcelona, as well as the rest of Europe and America.
Fake Out!, you’ve gotta live it.
