Italian DJ/producer Peppe Citarella began to play his dad’s vinyl when he was a tennager. Listening to Soul, R&B and Disco back then, he quotes Barry White and Stevie Wonder among his favorite artists.
Exploring his instinct, he bought records by himself in the 90’s, jumping from Jazz to Garage and old school.
He dreamt about playing drums, but… So he appraoched the art of mixing, looking for warm and natural sounds.
Peppe most likely set himself in the soulful territories. He eventually embraced Latin vibes though, having his grandma of Mexican origins.
After a couple of years abroad, he decided to bring what he’d experienced to his native Italy. He soon after met India during an exhibition in Aversa. This allowing him to support the singer on international stages. Peppe and India released ‘Tacalacateo’ to critical acclaim. A track followed by the likes of ‘Mamafrica’ where he blended tribal rhythms and Soul.
This would get him to forge a strong relationship with Tony Humphries‘s Tony Records. Eventually partnering with label production manager and A&R DJ Jacko under the Two 4 Soulguise.
In 2015, Peppe Citarella joined NEUHM, a renowned House parties promoter in Naples.
