Pisco Bar KL begins their first , a party that’s the opposite of their monthly Lazy Sundays. Instead of bean bags and cuddles, they will be dancing and grooving.
The first of this series sees Stefano Ritteri from Italy grace their little terrace. Stefano is no stranger to the world of underground music. Fusing beats and ethic elements as he makes dance floors far and wide groove.
doesn’t care about genres and boundaries. He makes good music . His Italian passion and obsession for obscure samples and homemade synthesisers can be easily identified , and in the past 10 years Stefano has released on a handful of diverse and eclectic labels, such as Get Physical, Dirtybird, Exploited, Pets Recordings and Rockets and Ponies. As a DJ his style is also very recognisable, he mixes African and Asian traditional songs with house and techno, and he often swings in between tempos and styles.
Stefano tours extensively, has scored a residency at Fabric a few years back (with the Solo moniker), and his energy takes him to many after parties and bizarre situations. A trained pianist and drummer, in recent years Stefano has started working as a composer and engineer for TV and Advertising, his biggest claim to date is working on the soundtrack for the English Premier League, which has been streamed millions of times on several platforms.
Always eager to speak about music instruments and production, Stefano lectures regularly in universities and music schools around the world, many of his talks have been featured in magazines and can be found online, enjoyed and revered by fellow nerds. Stefano’s music is championed and supported by Pete Tong, Annie Mac and B-traits, and besides appearing on several BBC Radio 1 programs, he started his own monthly show on Rinse France.
Alongside him, there is also from Singapore. A London native who has played in the likes of Fabric, 93feet East, and Corsica Studios, Oliver has become a familiar face behind the consoles of some of the best underground clubs in Asia, with gigs as far afield as Mongolia.
2016 was a big year for Oliver, having played Ultra Singapore, launched his record labelETTF Music, and played extensively across Asia. This year started just as strong, with &ME and Stefano Ritteri playing his tracks, closing out the massive Kolour In The Park festival in Thailand, playing one of the last ever sets at Bali's Koh, and being booked for a second time at Ultra Singapore.
He also brings his musical agenda to various pop-up parties around the city and runs the phenomenally successful Eyes To The Front pool parties. Though Oliver learnt to DJ on a diet of jungle, drum and bass and hip-hop, his ear eventually turned to house and techno, and his current sound has taken him around some of Asia’s top underground clubs.
