Aroop Roy is a producer, musician and label lead, who joins the dots between electronic music and borderless organic sounds. From house, disco and techno to jazz, garage and Afrobeat, he has enjoyed universal acclaim as a producer and DJ.
Aroop's eclectic productions have become a mainstay for DJs across scenes and generations, with Gilles Peterson calling him 'a brilliant producer, who never fails'. In recent years, he has been high in demand as a remixer, working for both underground and major labels.
Like his productions, his sets are full of personality and style and have earned him a growing reputation as a uniquely gifted DJ. In 2022, he closed We Out Here Festival with Mr Scruff who described Aroop as a 'ridiculously skilled selector, musically able to move in any direction with ease'. As an eclectic digger and tastemaker, he has recorded guest mixes for the likes of Gilles Peterson, Freerange Records, COOP, Jazz FM and BBC 6 Music's Craig Charles Funk & Soul show.
Aroop is enjoying huge momentum, with sets at Fabric, Printworks, Defected Croatia, Hi Ibiza and Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival in 2023 and invited by the legendary Mr Scruff for a B2B tour. His Aroop Roy & Friends series in London was a huge success with 4 sold out shows and critical acclaim.
