With an artist name derived from the legendary soul singer Minnie Riperton, it’s crystal clear everything is based around soul for Raphael Gros aka Ripperton.
Mid-noughties, Ripperton gained massive attention through his Lazy Fat People project releasing on labels such as Border Community, Planet E, and Wagon Repair. It was in that very same period when Ripperton made his breakthrough as a solo artist with an almost endless run of releases topped with a series of high profile remixes.
It is not only as a DJ/producer that Ripperton has his grip on the electronic scene; he also runs ‘Tamed Musiq’ which is an intimate imprint with no rules nor borders and home to a series of groundbreaking EP’s. From 2006 to 2012, Ripperton also ran the infamous Perspectiv stamp, which has been put on hold for the time being. From immersive techno to house, Ripperton adds a newfound sense of introspection to electronic music.
