DA Exclusive: Pirupa dishes two exclusive cuts for Toolroom Ibiza Underground 2014 [Preview]
For all the shifts and twists in sound that have characterised their past ten years, Toolroom Records has seldom dropped the ball where it’s vision for underground house music is concerned. Among the 44-track return of the label’s Ibiza Underground compilation series for 2014 stands Italian heavyweight Pirupa, who dons two exclusive cuts to proceedings this month to seal a relentless insight into why the ‘other’ side of the industry coin is looking more invigorating than ever before this summer.
While “Black Form” leads with steady low-end temperament and hypnotic sample work, “Sweat” embodies that panache for heavy yet percussive tech house that has kept the London-based groover transfixed on dance floors and the digital market alike. It shows not only how effective his ‘less-is-more’ agenda can be on the dance floor, but his skill in still dominating electronic dance music’s less glamorized remits. As the summer takes shape with the promise of more new material and an unprecedented run on the White Isle, Pirupa remains an essential asset to the European house armada still sweeping the global industry here in 2014.
