What Pirupa has accomplished in 2 years is astounding and this is just the tip of the iceberg, making him one of the producers and DJs you have to watch.
A talented DJ/producer from Italy, Pirupa has recently separated himself from the pack of successful producers by topping beatport's charts with his last releases. Now with three of the most downloaded tracks on Beatport "Sweet Devil" in 2009 , "Get Funky" in 2010 and "Party Non Stop" in 2012, the sky's the limit for this relentless talent from the small peninsula.
Released on impressive (well known) dance record labels in the world (Defected, Desolat, Cècille, Viva Music, Saved, Noir Music, Audio Therapy, Rebirth, Cr2, Snatch! Records, Suara, Stereo and Size Records to name few) Pirupa has recently remixed Sharam and the legendary Jamiroquai for Universal, more than Westboy, Riva Starr, NiCe7, Luca Agnelli, Pitto, Tube & Berger and Marascia among others.
Pirupa has accomplished this in a short period of time, building a reputation that takes most artists a lifetime to achieve. A feat like this can cause some people to sit back, relax, and acknowledge their own success but this has only caused Pirupa to work harder with new hot releases!
His success in the studio led to rank at #11 in the Top100 Most Charted Artists of 2010 on Resident Advisor and has landed Pirupa gigs at some of the most prestigious clubs in the world, gracing the decks of many leading venues such as:
Space (Ibiza), Ministry Of Sound (London) Pacha (New York), Cielo (New York), D-Edge (Sao Paulo), La Kasa (Medellin), Nocturnal (Miami), Electric Pickle (Miami), Footwork (Toronto), Mint (Leeds), Mynt (Belfast), Culture Box (Copenaghen), Warehouse (Birmingham), Armani Club (Dubai), Cocoricò, Eliptica (Cali) , The End (Bogota), Echoes, Vola afc, Kindergarten, Prince, Folies de Pigalle...
...and festivals like:
Sonar (Barcelona), Kazantip (Ukraina) and Surround Festival.
He has played alongside legends such as Pete Tong, Steve Lawler, Dj Vibe, Chus&Ceballos, Paul Woolford, Sander Kleinenberg, Nick Curly, Smokin Jo and many more.
Pirupa’s tracks are regularly supported and played by Pete Tong, Luciano, Carl Cox, Richie Hawtin, Paul Van Dyk, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Danny Tenaglia, Dubfire, Nick Curly, Erick Morillo, Mathias Tanzmann, Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli, James Zabiela, Mark Knight, Riva Starr to name a few.
