Italian DJ and label head Pirupa has earned a strong reputation over the past decade with a regular string of global club and festival gigs and records that have done the rounds. As a label owner he has to keep his ears to the ground for the next wave of talent, so we asked him to give us his 10 artists to watch going into 2019. Some have been signed to the label and others might not have been, but they should be on the lookout for more support coming their way.
He just released a collaborative EP with Leon Our Sound on Elrow Music that you can pick up here and stream as well.
Here are his selections UNRANKED.
Great remix of my track by one of my favorite house & tech house producers. Every release from this guy is hot.
Top tune – I love the disco vibe and they are masters to recreate that old school vibe in every track they release. Amazing producers.
3. Marc Ross:
Very nice tune from Marc, he's part of the NONSTOP family and he will have other cool releases coming this year, watch out.
Dangerous track and I’m pretty sure he will release some other big dancefloor tracks this year.
I’ve been following this guy for a while. He’s a great producer and now he is on fire! I was recently sent the promo for his next release on Dirtybird and it is huge.
6. Nasser Baker:
This is one of the tracks of last summer from one of the coolest and most talented producers in the business.
What a fresh and cool tune! He's on fire and I’m pretty sure that he will deliver some other super beats this year.
Great techy tune from one of the greatest young Italian talents. I will release new music on NONSTOP and Desolat later this year...you will see...bombs!
This is maybe the track I played most last year. He is another great producer – the groove is his key!
10. Andrea Giudice:
This is another good friend and part of the NONSTOP Family with great talent. He will release again soon on NONSTOP and has a few other EPs on Sola and other super labels coming out this year.
