Today we introduce you a very talented emerging DJ from our area. Pigro On Sofa is the man when it comes to mix classic and new UK urban music just the way we like it, and he is going to prove it with this bubblin’ mix. But he is also an expert in the history of the dance/rave culture; we asked him a couple of questions to introduce himself.
M&J: Tell us a little something about this mix, like how you made it and what the selection is about:
Pigro: This is a mini-partymix for the guys at Babylon radio show, on italian national station RAI Radio2 (every weekend from 23.00 to 0.00). The program deals with everything fresh, electronic and indie. I put together this selection trying to match different points of view: my latest picks, playing something fit for a national radio, engaging the casual listener drivin his car, a listener driving an old FIAT Panda, and my absolute anxiety when it comes to record a set from my living room.
M&J: What are your current and future projects and where we can find you spinning records?
Pigro: I’m currently working on a demo-ep, to be released soon on vinyl, produced with Jean, an artist-producer based in Parma, Italy. After this mix I’m going to keep working with Radio2 Babylon with a very peculiar section called “Gabber Eleganza”, where every week I’ll be exploring the most hidden and forgotten realms of the 90′s rave and dance culture.
Here’s a few date for my up-coming gigs:
2 / 06 Vie Festival – Modena
9 / 06 Mit Festival afterparty – Roma
10 / 06 Tbc – Roma
11 / 06 Mencraft Festival w/Machinedrum – Testaccio / Roma
12 / 06 w/Mombu – Terme Caracalla / Roma
15/06 Miami festival – Magnolia /Milano – and I’m waiting confirmation for my first gig in London for July!
Thanx everybody and keep following me!
Well, as usual it’s about time to let the music speak: check this dope UK urban music mix, and tell us if you dig the skills! Enjoy.
