Aroop Roy is a London-based DJ, producer and label owner, who blends together the electronic edge of House, Disco and broken beat with the organic sounds of Afro, Latin, Funk and Jazz.
His eclectic productions have been supported by tastemakers and DJs from diverse scenes and generations including Gilles Peterson, Soul Clap, Artwork, Detroit Swindle, Karizma, Joey Negro, Dj Spinna, Atjazz, Francois K, Rainer Trueby, Laurent Garnier 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, Lazy Days, Sol Power and his own imprint Kampana.
2018 got off to a flying start, seeing Aroop headline Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival in Leysin, his music receiving regular play on BBC radio and a remix for UK legend Zed Bias. These achievements served as a warmup for the summer launch of 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 has been featured by major tastemakers across the scene including BBC Radio 1, Mixmag, DJ Mag, Rush Hour and Phonica, topping Juno Records’ monthly chart after only 2 weeks.
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 musicality 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.
