PIRUPA – OLDIES EP
There is something sweaty and intense about Pirupa’s house music, the way percussion cuts through thick bass lines and raw drums. Samples litter his sounds to add an extra something, and in the mould of his biggest hit to date, ‘Party Non Stop’, the dancefloor is never out of mind.
The title track here sees the Italian return to the old school, with a us garage laced cut that’s full of sound but never overloaded. All sorts of melodies, stabs and whistles make it a ravey cut, where the flip is darker and deeper. ‘Past Stuff’ is tribal and heavy, racing along with scraping and metallic perc sounds, cutting from earshot then dropping back in with a bang. And that’s the way Pirupa rolls… with high impact.
