Our next guest for our Sundowner. mix series is Italian DJ Niff. A creative mind who characterised for his tasteful selection and eclectic DJ sets inspired from all types of electronic music genres. Check out the interview we had with him.
Sundowner.: Hi Nicola, how are you?
Niff: Ciao, all good in Berlin, thank you!
Sundowner.: First of all, what was it that triggered your interest in music?
Niff: It comes from my home environment when i was very little, my father always listening to classical music, my brother playing the piano and my mother singing songs of Lucio Battisti, Franco Battiato, Francesco De Gregori. After that, 2 things had a big impact on me, first the italian rap-hip hop scene in the very late 90’s, and later when i got into Titilla Cocoricó for the first time in 2003 as a Clubber.
Sundowner.: What’s your creative process when recording a podcast?
Niff: Recording a podcast is something you do for the people so it has to be prepared with care from the first record to the last one, every track should get along with the others and in the end the story reflects your mood. I like it to be the most perfect it can be but imperfections are part of the thing.
Sundowner.: What has been the most fun b2b you’ve ever played?
Niff: Well…you know it’s kinda hard to say, but i think the one with Dj Tree last summer for the birthday of my friend Andrea in Rome.
Sundowner.: What’s the differences you see in the music scene from when you started to now?
Niff: It could seem ages have passed by, since I started until now…the internet changed everything. The progress of technology helped us digging deeper in every genre of music ever known, everybody now has different sources for discovering new music which can be old or new, analog or digital. It means that nowadays the music standard is higher and higher (or it should be).
Sundowner.: Any projects or releases we should look out for?
Niff: My new project FUORIORARIO coming very soon, a multidisciplinary platform, record label, podcast series and more. The first release has been ready for more than one year but then the pandemic happened so you know…
Sundowner.: Last question Niff, what’s your 3 favorite clubs/ parties?
Niff: That’s a very hard question…the Magick Bar in Rome, Closer in Kiev and Breakfast Club Party in Paris.
Sundowner.: Thank you so much for your time and we hope to see you very soon on the dance floor!
