Italian-born Pirupa makes his debut on the Crosstown Rebels sub-label Rebellion with 'Cristallo', while Maher Daniel supplies the remix.
'This is a special EP for me. "Cristallo" is very significant to me, I made it in 2014 while inspired by my stay in Ibiza last August and the magic of the island, with its hot and sexy sounds; while 'Save A Prayer' was created more recently in April, inspired by my last tour in the US where lots of particular things have happened. I am very happy with the work done and especially to debut on a label very important to me from an artist like Damian Lazarus, who I respect and have respected for over 10 years, since I started as a DJ and producer". Pirupa.
The opening track 'Cristallo' immediately transports you to the White Isle, with its steel drums bringing the rhythm, an infectious beat, and a breakdown to cause chaos. Next up is the Maher Daniel remix of 'Cristallo', and a heavier bassline and trippy effects. The final track 'Save A Prayer' is a siren to the dancefloor, with a gnawing beat and a drop that proves with Pirupa is supported by so many.
Pirupa has already achieved so much in a relatively short space of time. He regularly DJ's at worldwide events, was ranked #11 in Top 100 Most Charted Artists of 2010 on Resident Advisor. His tracks 'Sweet Devil' and 'Get Funky' both reached No.1 in the Beatport chart, whilst 'Party Non Stop' was awarded 'The Track Of The Season' at the 2012 Ibiza DJ Awards and reached No.1 in the Beatport tech-house chart.
Pirupa has previously released on Desolat, Saved, Snatch! Records, Rebirth, Noir Music, Defected and D-FLOOR. He has also been supported by Luciano, Richie Hawtin, Loco Dice, Marco Carola, Steve Lawler and Carl Cox among others.
Canadian born Maher Daniel was a perfect choice for remix duty as he always brings great energy to all that he is involved in. 2013 saw him join Dubfire's 'The Bullit Agency' whilst also releasing on Souvenir Music, No.19 Music, Rejected, Leftroom and Circus Recordings.
