    We hope that you are all getting over those post Christmas and New Years blues and settling back into the 9-5... If not, we at Melodic we think we have the perfect antidote.

    Next up at Melodic we have one of Switzerland's most acclaimed DJ and Producers. This man has been at the top of our wish-list since Melodic began so we're more than a little excited about this booking.

    This month we bring you RIPPERTON.

    Ripperton was born in the 70's, one of the most exciting times in music, which would explain his passion for soul music, his 12 inch vinyl collection which knows no bounds and his nickname, (think of one of the best female soul singers of that time).

    He gained outstanding popularity with his project Lazy Fat People that was signed to labels like Border Community, Wagon Repair and Carl Craig's Planet E, as well as new successes as a solo artist known as Ripperton.

    Aka Ripperton, he's enjoyed working in the studio with fellow Swiss producers, such as Sthlm Audio and Plak Records. He's also released tracks on MusicMan, Green, CLR, Systematic , Liebe Detail, Connaisseur, Caravan, Dessous and many more top labels, and delivered remixes for Ellen Allien, Jimspter, Laurent Garnier, Beanfield and the exceptional Radiohead. Very popular with artists such as Steve Bug, Carl Craig, James Holden, Apparat, Osunlade, Joris Voorn in their compilations over the last few years.

    In 2006 he started the well-known underground label, Perspectiv Records, which brought out some fresh talent from Switzerland and around the world and nurtured some interesting interactions with amazing producer like Tobias, DJ Koze, John Daly and Isolée, all highly respected by Raphaël. His long-awaited LP was out early 2010. Called "Niwa", this modern piece of music mixes different kinds of sounds from varied horizons and was released on the Dutch 'Green' label owned by friends Joris Voorn & Edwin Oosterwal.

    In 2011 he teams up with Deetron on a new project and works on his new album coming soon. Touring around the world the last decade, Ripperton spins the melodic and lush end of House, Minimal & Techno.

    Definitively one of the most creative Swiss DJs of today, Ripperton is a perfect
    electronic music chameleon.ël+Ripperton
