3 years of music
3 years of friendship
3 years of sharing bottles
3 years of wine-stained shirts
3 years of dancing until the lights come on
For the 3rd year celebration Peter Croce taps in one of the brightest lights in the global underground by way of London: Aroop Roy. The 2 will be playing 5 hours of unexpected and danceable deep house, jazz, funk, balearic, disco, techno, and other spirit music.

+++ PETER CROCE [Rocksteady Disco / Razor-N-Tape / Soundway]: https://soundcloud.com/petercroce
Tastemaker, purist, digger, fix-it man, people's choice, spirit guide, & dad-in-a-childless body have all been words to describe Peter Croce, the Detroit-bred deejay and producer. A true personality deejay, Peter's musical mind focuses more on soul and spirit than genres and rules, putting him straight in heart of the next generation of deeply rooted American selectors and label bosses.
His debut release "Revival" quickly sold out worldwide, earning organic support from Mr. Scruff, Soul Clap, Jamie 3:26, Ben Westbeech, and more; and continues to be heard on dance floors around the world. He's also a jazz-trained bassist and prolific re-editor (usually under his Mr. PC alias), artfully tailoring classics and future gems for his dance floors. In addition to his own imprint his releases can be found on Razor-N-Tape, Soundway, and On The Corner.
Aggressively DIY, Peter presses all of Rocksteady Disco's releases on Detroit's east side, stamping and shipping each record himself. In addition to pushing the Rocksteady Disco sound, he does A&R for MotorCity Wine Recordings, the label of Detroit's most beloved soulful venues.
Peter maintains a busy gig schedule between residencies in Detroit and Chicago, as well as appearances in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Seoul, and more.
