Like his productions, his sets are full of personality and style and have earned him a reputation as a uniquely gifted DJ. In 2022, his warmup for Mr Scruff at We Out Here Festival impressed the legendary UK selector so much, that he invited him to stay on the decks to close the festival back to back, describing Aroop as a 'ridiculously skilled selector, musically able to move in any direction with ease'.
In 2023, Aroop is enjoying huge momentum, causing wild scenes with his sets at Fabric, Printworks, Defected Croatia, Hi Ibiza and Gilles Peterson's Worldwide and We Out Here festivals.
An eclectic digger and tastemaker, he has recorded guest mixes for the likes of Gilles Peterson, Freerange Records, CO-OP, Jazz FM and BBC 6 Music's Craig Charles Funk & Soul show. Aroop's label Vive La Musique has focussed on quality over quantity, with reissues and reworks of rare eclectic sounds from around the world from Caribbean zouk and Congolese Rumba to French jazz - fusion and South soul. The entire catalogue has been celebrated by tastemakers across the scene with the latest offering "In the Fast Lane" receiving rave reviews for uncovering the historical connections between French virtuoso Jean - Luc Ponty and the Detroit techno movement.
