Aroop Roy

Aroop’s eclectic productions have been supported by tastemakers and DJs from diverse scenes and generations including Gilles Peterson, Hunee, Antal, Optimo, Detroit Swindle, Karizma, Joey Negro, Atjazz, Francois K, Soul Clap and many more. He has released music on an ever-growing list of labels such as Delusions of Grandeur, House of Disco, Gamm, Basic Fingers, Kampana and his own imprint Vive La Musique. Aroop has performed in 5 continents and over 40 cities, having had residencies in London, Geneva and Tokyo. Like his productions, Aroop’s DJ sets are always a performance full of personality and style. His position as a global tastemaker is clear with guest mixes for Gilles Peterson’s legendary Worldwide programme, deep house pioneers Freerange Records and broken beat scene leaders CO-OP amongst many others. In 2018, Aroop launched his label Vive La Musique with an official reissue and reworks of a rare 80s Zouk tune. The Tabala Mouv 12″ became one of the fastest selling records of the year and was been featured by major tastemakers across the scene including BBC Radio 1, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Rush Hour and Phonica, topping Juno Record’s monthly chart after only 2 weeks. The 2019 follow-up Sammy Massamba’s ‘Azali’ had similar support with Aroop’s edit scoring 10/10 in Mixmag and earning ‘Tune of the Month’.
