Minimal Effort Artist Spotlight: Bart Skils B2B Layton Giordani
As the new generation of dance music heavy-hitters begin to make their indelible mark on the scene, seasoned veterans are taking notice; guiding incoming stars towards a bright future of unfettered musical exploration.
That is the relationship between Bart Skils, an Amsterdam legend who is a physical extension of the city’s influence on techno, and Layton Giordani, the Drumcode wunderkind who is taking the world by storm. Together they are a diad in dance music. Bart’s encyclopedic knowledge reciprocates Layton’s affinity for what’s hot that can only come from someone tapped into the youth.
Throughout 2019, Layton and Bart demonstrated this capable chemistry both in the studio and behind the decks. Along with Drumcode boss Adam Beyer, they produced a remix of Pete Lazonby’s ‘Sacred Cycles’ that features dulcet tones overlapping with the driving style that the three collaborators share. One can only hope that original productions from the two of them are planned for 2020.
Together Layton and Bart also played at some of the most impressive dance music events in the world. In May 2019 they shared the stage at the illustrious EDC Vegas, and a few months later performed at the Gashoulder in Amsterdam for the legendary Awakenings party at ADE; a set that has since become legend.
We could not be more thrilled they will display that chemistry during their first set together in the new decade at Minimal Effort NYE. Ahead of the event, they each had questions for the other about their musical upbringings, their connections to their hometowns and more.
