Trance fans will already be aware of New York duo Domenick Filopei and Bo Pericic from their production work on labels such as Baroque and Vandit. But if 2006 marked the official lift-off for Filo & Peri into the Top 100, 2007 has seen their name go stellar on a global scale, thanks in no small part to their Paul van Dyk championed track 'Anthem'.
"We both loved the track from day one but didn't really know what to expect," says Bo. "We were so excited to see 'Anthem' continue to get bigger and bigger and we're very grateful to all the big names who supported it."

Filo & Perry have a burning hunger for more success, but at the same time they're not taking anything for granted. They revealed that they're working on new projects with Eric Lumiere and others in readiness for a full artist album in early 2008.
"Music is a universal language and we're very fortunate to help spread the word," adds Bo.

Filo & Peri are certainly spreading their musical message on tour, and having reached cult-like status in North America they're now starting to break onto big shows in Europe and Asia, so expect their star to shine brightly as we move into 2008.
