DJ Tappu

Never afraid to go deep, his musical selections are his own therapy on a spiritual level. Having grown up on his family’s eclectic combination of soul music (James Brown, Sam Cooke), reggae music (Bob Marley, UB40), 50s and 60s rock music (the Beatles, Elvis Presley), R&B (Stevie Wonder) are the roots of all which became infused with his own love for Electronic Dance music, Tappu ended up with a diverse spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of music that he loves best: melodic synth work, soulful baselines, and occasional vocal hooks…all on top of a well-defined, foot-shuffling house beat. 

Before he gained an interest in deejaying, Tappu began playing drums at an early age. He then went onto playing guitar, keyboards, percussion, and singing. With the amount of experience working at a studio and performing live with a band, as well as a solo act, it became a walk in the park to improvise on the turntables. In the recent years, Tappu went on to organise the Ripple Vibes events in Sri Lanka. This opened up many doors for his passion in music. He also records all his live sets and posts on Mixcloud.com. As a producer, an artist, a promoter and a DJ, Tappu expresses love through his music spiritually, and connects people with positive energy.
