“I’m a drummer, a metal drummer!”
This is enough to explain Taster Peter’s approach to Techno and gives you an idea about his legendary sultry live performances who brought him to general attention trough 2009 as one of the brightest pure talents emerging from the fizzy italian techno scene; but let’s have a little step back…
Taster Peter was born in Genova and raised in Livorno, Italy. Being raised in a musical family he played the violin and later on changed to guitar and double bass. After years he decided to start with the drums.
His drummer career started at 16 and for 10 years he has been the drummer of “Taster’s Choice”: a cultish italian Metal/Indie/Punk band, on their back 2 albums released and licensed worldwide plus a countless list of live shows.
While he was treading the drums heavy and heavier, our TP feeded his interest and love with electronic music: The Chemical Brothers, Prodigy, Air, Daft Punk, FatBoySlim, Basement Jaxx where sitting next to this metal/rock heroes in his Ipod and they never left since. The step to production unavoidable, at 16 TP with his first fruity loops software was jamming his early breaks // house // techno tunes.
Nowdays TP has build up his own inimitable twisted electronic sound: full made of energy, influenced by all things rock (or rockin’), not scary of the recent poor loopy trends but always aimed to create proper anthemic big room monsters. This attitude won the love of some the best DJs in the world like James Zabiela, 2000 and One, Mauro Picotto, Christian Smith, Deadmau5 and Dave Seaman… while Umek, Oliver Koletzki, Florian Meindl, Christian Fischer and Marco Bailey asked him to lend his magic touch for some Remix works.
His musical carrer never stops, and today he is protagonist of huge releases on TOP labels like Trapez, Tronic, Hell Yeah and Circle Music to name few….and his first album is coming, stay tuned!
Did we mention TP’s sultry incendiary live sets right? As live performer he regularly visits & shakes venues in Berlin, Moscow, Ibiza, Barcelona, London and Vienna…all booking him back for extra madness!
He’s about to rock a club near you very soon, be ready…
