Italian native Joseph Capriati is praised for his marathon DJ sets, as well as his sharply produced techno and house tracks. Since launching his career in 2007, he has performed at countless festivals and clubs throughout the world, and released dozens of records for labels like Drumcode and CLR. While his singles tend to be functional tech-house and minimal techno tracks, his albums demonstrate his versatility, from the downtempo and drum'n'bass cuts on 2010's Save My Soul to selections on 2020's Metamorfosi that draw from garage house and Goa trance.
Capriati began DJing as a preteen, eventually attending raves and developing a passion for techno that would guide his career. He began producing tracks of his own, and in 2007 he had 12"s out on local labels such as Analytic Trail and Globox. Collaborative EPs with Rino Cerrone, Markantonio, and Uto Karem followed, and by 2009 he began releasing material on Adam Beyer's Drumcode label, as well as Chris Liebing's CLR. His debut full-length, Save My Soul, arrived in 2010, displaying his talent for creating driving club tracks as well as reflective downtempo numbers. Capriati's reputation as a DJ grew, as he restlessly traveled the world, co-headlining club events and festivals with well-regarded DJs including Adam Beyer, Marco Carola, and Danny Tenaglia, and often playing 12-hour marathon sets.
Capriati's sophomore full-length, Self Portrait, was released in 2013, with the CD version containing a documentary DVD, <I>Autoritratto. Capriati ranked in <I>Resident Advisor's Top 100 DJs polls from 2013 to 2016, and released Fabric 80, his contribution to Fabric's long-running mix CD series, in early 2015. Capriati launched his label Redimension in 2016; its first two singles were his collaborations with Beyer and Flavio Folco. Rilis Classics, Capriati's interpretations of tracks by Rino Cerrone, appeared on the label in 2018. Third full-length Metamorfosi arrived in 2020, including collaborations with house legends Louie Vega (Masters at Work), Byron Stingily (Ten City), and Eric Kupper. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
