Thick as Thieves presents DJ PP Australian Tour
One of the hottest names in house music, DJ PP, is set to make his Australian debut this October. Named by Mark Knight as one of the breakthrough DJ/Producers of 2010, the artist has set Beatport top sales charts alight in recent times with bangers on Toolroom, Defected, Great Stuff and Strictly Rhythm, among many others, and matches this production prowess with club-smashing DJ skills.
Despite his “newbie” tag, the man known on his passport as Gabriel Rocha is anything but an industry bambino. In his home country of Uruguay, he has racked up an impressive 17 years behind the dex and is a regular at many South American festivals including Creamfields.
His production career started in 2006 and since then the Uruguayan has issued cuts under the DJ PP, Rocher & Lewinger and Gabriel Rocher banners. Focusing on a drum-heavy, hiplashing tech house sound, Rocher’s tunes under the DJ PP moniker are everywhere in 2011. Recent cut ‘Gonna Be’ completed with Festa Bros has been burning up in Ibiza, while remixes of A-Divizion & Ovi M’s ‘Coabana’ and Dave Aude & Elijah’s ‘Holdin On’ are getting canned all throughout clubland.
Those looking for an indication of DJ PP’s skills behind a pair of Pioneers need only listen to his latest mix ‘Continuous DJ Session’ on Vendetta Records. Over 72 minutes the spinner brings the party with a groove-ridden mix of tech, tribal and rumbling house superbly blended by an artist with almost two decades worth of experience under his belt. Expect this and more when he brings his big ol’ bag of musical tricks to Australia this October.
