A genre defining, crossbred sound that draws heavily from progressive and deep house, Vipul’s music is as deceptive as his name. Just when you think you have him down pat, he can switch gears and dish out truly fresh techno as easily as he can work a funky beat that draws audiences to the dance floor.
Without hiding behind a nomenclature or using a pseudonym, Vipul is known for his honest and clean approach to music production. Equally devoted to DJ’ing as well as producing, Vipul started his career in 2008 and won the Sunburn Anthem remix contest early on. Heavily influenced by DJs and artists such as Sasha, John Digweed, Josh WInk, Robert Babicz, Terry Lee Brown Jr., Kevin Yost; Vipul’s sets are open to many different styles and genres. Constantly evolving as an artist, he has found himself working mostly in a very funky, tech-house sound that also draws on jackin’ and hypnotic elements.
By 2009, his prowess behind the deck quickly earned Vipul a coveted residency at one of the major clubs in Delhi where he was able to experiment with the entire range of house music. It was also during this time that he met, befriended and went on to collaborate with Hamza, the founder of India’s Premier house music label Wind Horse Records. His work there proved to be a great stepping stone and based on his growing reputation.
Building solid ground as a DJ, Vipul also started getting noticed for his production efforts. In India, “Persian Love” became quite popular and proved to be his trump card, while internationally, Vipul’s rising profile helped him release on various acclaimed global labels including Subtract Music, Perspectives Digital, Avangardia, Sick Watona, Whose Haus, 925 Digital, Lowbit, Endemic Digital, Budenzauber, City Life, Virtual Love, 3AM Recordings, Freizeitglauben Berlin and more. With his releases finding support from Nick Warren, Dousk, Ricky Ryan, Kosmas Epsilon, Andree Eskay, Djuma Soundsystem, Darin Epsilon, Ross Couch, Jamie Stevens, Silicone Soul, Matan Caspi, Kasey Taylor, Matt Darey, Francesco Pico and Lemon8, Vipul also started innovating and was remixed by prolific artists such as Robert Babicz and Dousk.
Good music always finds its way to the top, which is why Vipul also got opportunities to play supporting sets for Secret Cinema, Richie Hawtin, Nick Warren, Mark Knight, Sander Kleinenberg, Jim Rivers, Matador, Tim Davison, Inland Knights , Ad Brown, Dr.Kucho, Alex Niggemann, Rainer Weichhold, Ricky Ryan, Darin Epsilon, Arjun Vagale, Midival Punditz and more.
Post his successful project with renowned Argentinian Ricky Ryan, these days Vipul is concentrating on earning his chops as a producer, so it won’t be long before he becomes a force to reckon with in the techno music scene. Keep your ears peeled!
