George BTP Aka Allstarr Motomusic, (also known as Dan Piu and Zarenzeit)is the founder and CEO of deepArtSounds.
As a child, George’s favorite toys were cassette tapes. His older sister’s interest in Disco music also played an important part on his ongoing love for soulful dance music. By 1987, he was influenced by the legendary 'Flamingo' Disco club in Zurich, which it possibly was one of the first European clubs dedicated purely to House music. From that year, George begun to buy vinyl records and today he is well known for his in-depth background and huge knowledge of House & Disco music. George's record collection is extensive with well over 20'000 records to show for.
By the late 80´s, already known as a collector on the 'vinyl scene', he started deejaying at different clubs in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. Encouraged by the success as a resident DJ in the hottest Zürich clubs ‘2. Akt’ and ‘Toni Molkerei’, he also started to produce his own tracks on his self-founded labels 'No Acting Vibes' and 'Moto Music'.
By using a variety of analogue synthesizers and analogue effects, Dan Piu productions were known for its pure and warm sounds. 'The Shine EP' released in 1996, was followed by the 'Limitless Expanses EP', the 'Innercity Terror EP' and the 'Quenchy EP'. These were not only the result of his passion for working with machines, but also a praise of recognized DJ's (Examples such as; Freddy Fresh, Terry Hunter, Jeff Mills, Todd Sines & Carl Craig) who included George’s productions on their Top Charts. In 2003, he decided to close his labels. It was obvious, the analogue sound of Moto Music and the live arrangement character were no longer adequate to the new digital world which became a big boost by that time.
Years later in 2006, he created 'deepArtSounds' (a mix-podcast platform for local DJ’s). In 2011, alongside Okan Akpinar and his former Label partner Roberto Pistolese, he launched deepArtSounds as a vinyl label, releasing deep and soulful house music by loads of international artists, as well as his own productions under the Project Name 'Allstarr Motomusic'. In 2014 he contributed with his song 'Little Trinidadian Girl' on Ernie's Top Label Minuendo. One year later in 2015, his debut EP 'Beauty & Simplicity Vol. 1' was released on 'Deep Explorer'. Very quickly it found the recognition of one of his musically idols: Ron Trent, who also released under his label later on, as well as other renowned producers as Glenn Underground and Anthony Nicholson, among others.
George is undoubtedly a sound aesthete. His sets are particularly emphasised by long mixes and quick changes through several music styles. They burst with energy and personality and are aimed at the dancefloor without losing sight of their fundamental sound values.
George has played since the early 90´s at festivals and clubs such as Rohstofflager, Toni Molkerei, Hive, Limmathaus, Streetparade, Club Q, 2. Akt and 4. Akt.
Talking about his latest productions, his recent albums 'Black Inside' as Zarenzeit on deepArtSounds and 'Living in Fears' as Dan Piu on the nice Cartulis Label, underscore his ambitions in the electronic music scene.
There will be soon a few Allstarr Motomusic releases on labels like TH Pressing & Bucketrounds. Also a Mini Album on the well known Deep Explorer Label with his 'Beauty & Simplicity Vol. 2' that features the smooth vocals from Sarigna Bonfà and a C.V.O. Remix by Glenn Underground.
He recently has finished an all new Album together with Grant from the Lauren Bacall Label which will be released as a 2x12'' later this year.
George is also known as Filmmaker. He has launched his Music Documentary about the deep House scene in Madrid: 'Exploring Madrid'.
