Purple Inc. is a new London based monthly affair bringing together the finest artists in tech/deep-house & techno in a way never done so consistently before. The idea & inspiration for Purple Inc. started back in 2010 between friends Yvo Zanev & Joe Lyes while they were running nights in Switzerland & felt they needed a bigger platform to bring it too. This will be the first year it finally comes to life & what better way to start then in the capital of the underground scene.
To say that Andrea Oliva has had a successful 2012 would be a bit of an understatement to say the least. Firmly at the heart of Luciano’s Cadenza family, Andrea has played at every major Vagabundos show the label has put on this year & as well as headlining a lot himself. Andrea's productions have continued to blossom into ever more impressive shapes. Take his recent 'Click Off' EP on Cadenza, a four-track collection of smart, energetic house music. With a wide and absorbing palette of percussion, instruments, tones, and rhythms, the EP is a perfect example of how Andrea is able to translate his significant DJing experiences into beautifully composed electronic music. Not to forget the massively successful track on Be As One Imprint ‘Scene’ with its mean vocals & bouncy tech sounds. He’s also released tracks on Viva Music, Saved Records, Hideout, and Cadenza Lab. We are extremely excited to welcome him to the Purple Inc. family & cant wait to hear what he has lined up in his set.
Shlomi Aber has had releases on some of the biggest labels around; Desolat, Cocoon, Cadenza Lab as well as running & owning the well respected label Be As One Imprint. Recognized as one of the main techno pioneers and influential artists of the recent time, we couldn’t think of a better artist we wanted to bring down, so we’re flying him all the way from Israel for this exclusive date. His latest EP ‘Rear Gear’ on Cadenza Lab included the highly rated ‘We Don’t Fit’, a track that couldn’t ‘Fit’ better on a Purple Inc. night. Excuse the pun.
"Shlomi's sets are full with warm and unique sounds that makes you feel like you are going back to the better days of music, it was something I can’t define just by one word, if I must I will call it something between house and techno. With his fascinating technical skills, accurate programming and music selection, you can just feel the magic in the air." (DJmag profile article)
Ibellini has set out to put his stamp on the music scene, creating 'Peculiar' parties, which are held at locations across the east and west of London, cultivating a cultishly loyal following inspired by the interactivity that 'Peculiar' is all about. He joins the Purple Inc. team as one of our residents bringing with him a loyal London based following that gives him a forum to build his sound of warm and sexy techno.
Yvo Zanev the co creator & director of Purple Inc. has recently made the move from Switzerland to London. Originally from Hamburg, Germany the young DJ & producer has wasted no time in making his mark on the industry. After 2 successful years at Qube Club in Switzerland (2009-2011) where he played along side the likes of Dennis Ferrer, Pete Tong and many more. Yvo felt the need for something more and moved to London where he started his new project Purple Inc. in late 2012.
