Mario Domjan (Collective Machine Aka Domyan) has made us a guest mix. Mario won the Burn residency for Hungary. Vari got to know him in Ibiza during this competition, he didn’t only make a mark with his music, but also the dude is seriously funny. The Burn Residency competition in Ibiza was filled with great and very talented people, Mario is one of them. We are very happy to have this great guy onboard the number20 hall of fame. He is no newcomer to production or DJ ing, he has already had releases on K7, Minus, KD Music, Great Stuff, Hoehenregler. He also runs his own label called Aula Records. And another very cool thing, one of his tracks is featured on the newest Dj Kicks compilation from Maya Jane coles. Check it here.

What are you doing right now?
It Monday evening, so not too much :-) Well I’m doing this interview and I’m enjoying the fact that my EP on Sleazy Beats Black Ops is released today!
How did this whole music thing start for you?
I always loved music! From old tapes and records that my parents played to Kwassa Kwassa, Gabber, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Ethiopian Funk, MFSB, Wild Beasts, Erik Satie, Vakula, Session Victim and so on! The music making thing started quite some years ago with a keyboard and a shitty computer… My studio looks a bit better now though.
What sound or noise do you love?
My alarm clock, it’s the best
What’s been on repeat lately?
Out of your body of work what is your favorite track and why?
That would be “Bohicon Funk”. It’s a different sounding track that switches from African influenced music to deeper house music… I lived in Bohicon (a small village in Benin, Western Africa) for a couple of years, so it’s nice to combine my passion (which is obviously music) with a place in the world that influenced me.
What are you currently working on?
I’m working on another EP for Sleazy Beats Black Ops and a couple of edits that should see daylight later this year. Besides that I have a little side project that should be released in September. And I’m always trying to make new stuff and sounds. Oh and I’m looking for someone to repair my Pearl Syncussion, as it died a couple of days ago… :(
Any dream (remixing) collaborations you’d like to take on?
Too many to name actually, but the Wild Beasts would be really cool!
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
My Pearl Syncussion!
What is your vital daily ritual?
That’s a hard one, I just love my cigarettes.
Very stupid but that would be nos.nl a Dutch news and sports site, thenumber20.com and soundcloud.com are cool too!

We hereby introduce you to the multi talented mister Martin Bjørnersen aka DJ Hele Fitta. This means The whole cunt! Yep, that’s right with a name like this you have to be something special and we dare to say that he is. He has great taste in music and also extensive knowledge of this wonderful field. He is like a walking music encyclopedia. We dig the Whole Cunt and his guest mix. Its fresh and very clean.
Who is Hele Fitta?
I’m a DJ, music writer and sometimes TV blogger(?!), but mostly just a fan of good music. I play records around town – mostly gangsta rap and gay disco. Preferably both genres, at the same time, but sometimes separately as well. I also make music, sometimes with my potna Salvador Sanchez as Punani SS (check it!).
Any comments on your mix?
It’s basically me just playing whatever record I could find within arms reach one early spring afternoon at home, trying to keep myself busy on my first day of my first attempt of giving up cigarettes after 20 years, so that’s also my excuse if the mix is a little … shaky. OK, the intro was “rehearsed” one time but other than that it’s just a spontaneous celebration of unexpected sunshine and too much coffee. No gangsta rap on this mix unfortunately (jungle Brothers DEFINITELY does not count) but apart from that it’s pretty much as all over the place as anything I do: a pop tune that I love, some italo, some underground disco, some Norwegian stuff (one “nugget” and one big choooon), some incredibly incredible house tunes and some nineties freestyle to round it out. It’s spring, my belle!

Yesterday we were in Russia, today we’re in Italy! Introducing the Irregular Disco Workers. Get ready for a classic Number 20 Mini Interview but with a little twist… The Irregular Disco Workers is a joint venture that was born in 2010 between two Italian producers, Gregorio Assandri (Cloned In Vatican) and Andrea Frittella (Dj Andryu).
These guys are eclectics and not lovers of distinction between musical genres, they pride themselves in fusing different styles to make a very unique and funky result. Sooo on the topic of fusion, the I.D.W. boys and myself have joined forces and made an ‘Irregular’ mixtape to accompany their interview…
We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed putting it all together :-)

Who are the IRREGULAR DISCO WORKERS?
G: Well… We are two guys, not so young, that live in The North and in The South of Italy, united by music, respect, honesty, and temporary work. We choose the name “Irregular Disco Workers”, because we are temporary workers in music (we don’t do this as first work, we do it for passion, and the results are always temporary, and not sure), because we want to identify all the music we’ve made and played in clubs as “Disco”, that’s not only connected to Disco Music, but to all music we like playing.
How did this whole music thing start for you guys?
G: I am interested to dance music since I was 12 Years old, where I followed releases listening to Italian radio shows of 90’s. I start spinning records in 2001 at 20 years old, as a passion, with the mission not only to play music, but to grow “culturally” and open myself to music, and also to create my personal sound. In 10 Years a lot of things changed, now I have my label, I started making music in 2008 (I never thought of these things before), my background has grown, but I love and want to learn something new all the time. I started working with Andrea at the end of 2009. In that period, I was searching for an help to manage my label “Disco Volante”, and I wanted to find the right person to do it: Disco Volante represented also myself so it was not a joke for me. I knew Andrea since middle 2000’s because we met each other online and posted in an Italian Dj forum. He did the remix for my first release “Disco Volante” in 2009, and I think he was perfect to manage a label because we have music vision in common. The label did good, so we start working together, and we did our first remixes in 2010 that was released last year for Italian I-Robots label “Opilec Music”: “The Units – Connections”. The two remixes were tagged as “ Dj Andryu And Cloned In Vatican Remixes”. So, we’d like to create a shortcut (versions name will be to long every times if we leave our real Dj names) and we choose Irregular Disco Workers. This collaboration started with two remixes, the first is “El Toro” By Cosmonauts, out on our label in 2010 and charted by important Dj’s, and the second is “We Love Computers” by Salta & Roma, posted in soundcloud in 2010 and out last year. With these two remixes some labels start contacting us to have our work up until today and we hope also in the future…
A: I started “joking” with records at 18 years old, but I started Djing at 20… after buying my first console (with the first salary as computers programmer). I started make music in 2004… and I released the first vinyl in 2006, with my first project “Relative Depth” (dance/electro trio I founded in 2005). Later, I was not in sync with Relative Depth sounds and I started to collaborate with Greg. I went into Disco Volante officially in 2010 and now…..
What are you listening to now?
A: Now I’m trying to listen all news and all demos we receive at Disco Volante. Often I listen to soundcloud; I think this is the place for listening good tracks, great worldwide artists and also to find good inspirations.
G: Me too, Demos, soundcloud, and also worldwide digital shops with labels that promote and produces what I like.
What’s the proudest moment you guys have experienced in your careers so far?
A: The first vinyl – The first gig as Irregular Disco Workers and The first I.D.W. EP (maybe in the next months? eheheheh)
G: The first gig as I.D.W. was very important for us, because was a confirmation that we were working, we don’t know if well or not, but we were working. Our works played by important Dj’s was good too because they knew to exist. Also the tracks of Disco Volante played by Pete Tong’s Essential Selection was a big emotion for us.
What sound or noise do you love?
G: Well I think I like all sounds, it depends from the period, in some periods I listen to jazz, in other disco, in other techno, in other deep, in other Italo, in other oldies… It depends from the day and what I feel at the moment… The only thing I can say is that I always listen to music everyday and I can do nothing without background music.
A: I love the noise of Lego bricks when shaking their box, it’s amazing! About music, I listen all kind of sounds, from easy listening to underground. In detail, I like bass and percussion and I fall in love when a track contains funk smell or Brazilian beats… I also love arpeggio, I would put arps in all our tracks and on spaghetti… eheheh…. ;-)
What are your worst addictions?
G: Well, as people in the north of Italy, I’m always in a hurry with deadlines, so I press people, Andrea especially, because all for me is urgent. In Italian we said that I am “rompicoglioni”.
A: I’m always late… I always eat like a pig… and I always tell people what I think (sometimes this is a good solution).
Name 3 of your favorite records old or new?
A: Lindstrom – Another Station, Eagles – Hotel California, The Wham – Last Christmas… But these are the first came in my mind.
G: Glenn Miller – In The Mood , Nicola Conte Feat. Lucia Minetti – Kind Of Sunshine , M&G – When I Let You Down… Also for me these are the first records I thought of.
What’s your favorite website?
G: The Number 20 obviously hehhehehe … ;o)… Well to be true I don’t have a favorite website, but I always discover a new interesting blog or websites through my friends and others on the social networks.
A: Easy answer… Google… A door to the universe…
What’s the one thing you can’t live without?
G: Music, my brain, my Ideas, my books, my PC, my Ipod, my vinyls, and all persons who believe in what I do.
A: Definitely music, but I can’t live without my family and… Pizza!
Any dream (remixing) collaborations you’d like to take on?
G: Erlend Oye of Kings Of Convenience, I like his very particular voice, it would be very interesting remixing one of his song or producing a song with him.
A: I like to collaborate with any artist that can stimulate my imagination. I’d like to have a chance with Hans Peter Lindstrom, I like his vision and his class. If I could have a voice for my tracks I definitely would like to work with Bjork. Her voice make me horny…. ahahahahah.
