From underground phenomenon to emerging star of the world's biggest dance floors: the hottest fresh face of international dance music hails from Italy: CONGOROCK. In only two years, with the single Babylon, the remix of Somebody to Love (Boy George/Mark Ronson), and One (Swedish House Mafia), Rocco Rampino has earned the respect of the most famous names in the game, like David Guetta at the legendary Cocoricò of Riccione where he recently shared the console. The Leccese's powerful electro-house sound and his tropical deejay sets have gained the support from Afrojack to Diplo, from Tiësto to Benny Benassi, from Martin Solveig to Duck Sauce and the Crookers. They're all expectantly awaiting August for his new single Sirius and the new album recorded in Jamaica with local singers, out this winter.
No longer the young Italian newcomer on the electro scene, Congorock has come into his own as a producer with an unmistakable flair and a deejay that handles large clubs and festivals. "Over the past two years I have been playing in larger contexts, like outdoor festivals and raves. I've realized that my music has a lot of potential outside the club. So I'm trying to combine my underground soul with my "big room" heart, which inevitably leads to epic and intense tracks. "
The taste for contaminated, peripheral dance sounds is never-ending. In spring Rocco flew to Kingston, Jamaica, where a series of local dancehall singers improvised on the latest beats that Rocco brought along for the occasion. The collaboration resulted in a debut album up for release next winter. The upcoming instrumental single Sirius will hold you over, with its video out on Aug. 23. Both are being released by the giant Ultra Records, in whose catalog Congorock is in good company, with Tiësto, Benny Benassi, David Guetta, Deadmau5, Ferry Corsten, Paul Oakenfold and dozens of other superstars.
