MACEO PLEX: ELLUM
Forming together as Fideles in 2010, Daniele Aprile & Mario Roberti have been shaping music that blends the melodic and epic to deliver a mature and contemporary sound. Drawing on their lifelong influences, the Italian duo’s productions have peaked the attention of some of the biggest imprints in modern dance music.
Their body of music to date is substantial, including releases on labels like Bedrock, Poker Flat, Stil vor Talent and more recently, Afterlife, Innervisions and Exit Strategy. Combining a heady mix of mesmerising layers, hypnotic percussion and euphoric swells, Fideles’ productions have impressed and featured in sets from DJs like Laurent Garnier, Solomun and more, including a feature of Fideles’ ‘The Border’ [Exit Strategy] in Pete Tong’s Favourites of 2017.
In 2018, Fideles’ ‘Resonant’ single was included in Tale Of Us’ fabric97 compilation CD, whilst ’Lotus’ was featured in Afterlife’s ‘Realm Of Consciousness’ Compilation. With a return to Afterlife for their second EP and a string of releases scheduled for 2019, Fideles’ music output looks set to continue on it’s upward trajectory.
Following a number of worldwide club shows including plays at the likes of Printworks (London), Amnesia (Ibiza), Rex Club (Paris), Watergate (Berlin) and Fabric (London), their upcoming schedule promises to share their sound further than ever.
Consistently striving for a sound thats timeless yet original, Fideles are a duo with exciting plans on the ever-nearing horizon.
