Future Lovers is a fresh club music project that was created by combining the rich experience and precious creativity of the first lady of Slovenian dance / electronica music, Trick-C, and the skilled DJ and studio genius, Dante Benami (ex. Point) Alternative club / electronica featuring retro buzz and emotions? And why not? In the current flood of cold industrial electronica, the heart, emotions and love are among the elements generally not to be found on dance floors. But music is the medium of love. And love is the medium of music.
First lady of Slovenian techno scene has been firmly stuck behind turntables for over a decade. As a DJ and party organiser she has established herself within the international campaign Urban Divas attracting ladies devoted to electronica / dance and their adherents of various artistic expressions. Lately she has also been succeeding with her original production, which, just like her sets, feeds on deep underground.
While pursuing this, the same as when working with turntables and mixers, she doesn't follow the trends as much as build her own music story, which has always been feeding mostly on the alternative. So far, this music philosophy of hers has been best presented in her latest single DeTour, which was released by the Vezotonik label within the United EP.
The second half of the Future Lovers tandem features Dante Benami (ex. Point), originating in Zagreb, who first encountered the art of DJ-ing at the early age of 12 and became resident for the first time only three years later. At the end of the last millennium he launched the Croatian techno revolution and in 1999 organised the greatest techno party in Croatia. For some time now he has been living and working in Slovenia. Together with his life partner Trick-C, whom he met in 1999, he founded the CAAN Production booking agency aimed at organising an exchange of Croatian and Slovenian DJs as well as visits of foreign DJs to Slovenia and Croatia. They cooperated as residents and at various projects. Trick-C later continued to work on her own, while Dante Benami (ex. Point) left the music scene temporarily.
In 2009, Dante Benami (ex. Point) was tempted to restart his creative chakras thanks to the studio software development that happened in-between, enabling the author to create new sounds and play music from digital media. He now plays and creates music that he likes to call "smart music", which is based mostly on tech-house with strong dance groove. He still works as the organiser, promoter, DJ and producer, yet he remains a rather mysterious person, who rather than his face exposes his sets and music project such as the new one, Future Lovers and his pseudonym Dante Benami. The Future Lovers project is based on sound elements and music aesthetics of the 1990's, merging in a creative and eclectic way the pop-dance tradition with modern club trends. And why not? If nothing else, the 1990's were the time when the two project protagonists met each other and fell in love, while deep inside they shall always remain the children of the first rave generation.
