Aroop's eclectic productions have become a mainstay for DJs across scenes and generations, with Gilles Peterson calling him 'a brilliant producer, who never fails'. In recent years, he has been high in demand as a remixer, working for both underground and major labels.
Like his productions, his sets are full of personality and style and have earned him a growing reputation as a uniquely gifted DJ. In 2022, he closed We Out Here Festival with Mr Scruff who described Aroop as a 'ridiculously skilled selector, musically able to move in any direction with ease'. As 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.
In 2023, Aroop is enjoying huge momentum, fully booked through to early autumn, with sets at Fabric, Printworks, Defected Croatia, Hi Ibiza and Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival all in the diary as well as being invited by the legendary Mr Scruff for a B2B tour. His Aroop Roy & Friends series in London was a huge success with 4 sold out shows and critical acclaim. He has forthcoming EPs on Mele's Club Bad label and Jimpster's Freerange records, as well as several big remixes.
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 African soul. All releases have been celebrated by major tastemakers across the scene and several big releases are in the pipeline.
