Any friend of Plaza de Funk's is a friend of ours! This week The Space Cowboys are pleased to welcome to The RIPEcast PDF's good pal and flat mate, the founder of FlatOut Records and the pride of Stockholm: Peo de PItte (a.k.a. Haggstrom). For his appearance on the show, Peo treats us to sixty minutes of his signature "big room beats and cutting edge synths", a tech-funk mix with plenty of attitude.
Peo's RIPEcast is a mere sampling of what you'll be hearing at Burning Man this year by the way. He'll be making his first ever trip to the Black Rock Desert adding to what is promising to be an impressive roster of international DJ talent on the playa this year. Keep on eye on Peo's Facebook fan page and website (www.peodepitte.com) for his Burning Man gigs.
Many thanks to Peo de Pitte from The Cowboys for this fantastic RIPEcast. Enjoy Cowpokes!
A little more background on this week's guest.....
Peo de Pitte hails from the city of Stockholm. Having relocated to London, Peo has been cooking up a storm with his original production; remix work and his late night, hands-up-heads-down DJ sets. He has been running his own label FlatOut Records, home to his two aliases Peo de Pitte and Haggstrom which has seen support on radio, in press and at the forefront on headline DJ’s sets right around the globe. His hailed remix of ‘Riverside’ by Sidney Samson has so far clocked up over 75,000 downloads!
His trademark combination of big room beats and cutting edge synth’s has resulted in making Peo one of the most exciting new producers to emerge since IKEA. With remixes and releases on labels such as Global Underground, SIMMA, Fingerlickin’, LOT49, U&A, Frenetic and Champion Records, it is no surprise that he has won huge support from some of the dance worlds biggest acts like Afrojack, Crookers, Groove Armada, MJ Cole, Sinden, Roger Sanchez, Laidback Luke, Treasure Fingers, Kissy Sell Out, Elite Force, Jaymo & Andy George and Lee Mortimer. In-turn, this lead Peo to be invited to perform exclusive mixes for Annie Nightingale on Radio1 and Loose Cannons on Kiss FM as well as various radio stations worldwide.
In the year’s Peo has been on these shores, he has not had time to stop, unless of course, his studio surrounds him. He has toured Australia playing to full capacity venues, slammed shows in all around Europe and endless clubs in the UK such as Fabric, The Egg and Ministry of Sound and he also dropped a very special VIP set at Global Gathering.
Men want to be him, woman can’t help but dance to him and DJ’s & producers are literally queuing up to work with him. Welcome to the world of Peo de Pitte.
