Selected Cuts: Roberto Capuano
Roberto allows us to glimpse into his sonic library ahead of his show at this months Familia.
Raised in the depths of the Neapolitan underground scene, Roberto Capuano has garnered a reputation of as one the fastest rising electronic music stars since his early days as a sound engineer and A&R for a local label, Unrilis. Learning from those around him from agents to renowned artists, Capuano injected an infectious energy, strong work ethic and steady release of rolling, bassy productions into the Italian techno scene.
Following a breakthrough release EP titled ‘Vertigo’ on Adam Beyer’s notorious Drumcode imprint in 2013, the young producer rapidly gained support from industry heavyweights, propelling his profile to dizzying heights.
Allowing us to glimpse into his sonic library and hinting at what’s in store for this Saturday’s Familia show, Capuano has shared five selected cuts with us ahead of his Egg LDN return alongside Charlotte de Witte.
Luigi Madonna, Roberto Capuano - Midfield [Second State]
Of course the highlight of my recent DJ set! The rave style track I did with Luigi has become an anthem in some places, it's just amazing when the people start singing it! So proud of our job!
Nina Kraviz – IMPRV [Trip Records]
This is my favourite tool. A kind of acid trip with spaced out vocals that builds a hypnotising moment for the dancefloor.
Harvey McKay - Black Dolphin [Drumcode]
Harvey did a great job with this one, proof that simplicity is the most effective. Love to play it at peak times!
Frankie Bones - Call it Techno (Carlo Lio Remix) [Intec]
Dark groovy bomb remix from Carlio Lio, if you need to shake the floor, this is definitely the record to play.
KiNK - Yom Thorke [Running Back]
One of my favourite producers delivers an electronic journey with his well-known signature on synths sounds and a mysterious vibe. The track transmits in every sound system. Masterpiece.
