With a path laid out before him and the force of momentum behind him, Joseph Capriati welcomes the future with excited anticipation. I could be sick, or be feeling sad about something, but when I’m playing I totally forget everything and this makes me happier.Looking at the people dancing and following my musical trip is an amazing thing.More than just a collection of singles, the project illustrated Capriati's ability to spread his studio wings as he brought together a range of influences under a techno motif, illustrating the depth to his music that has seen the Capriati sound enchant dance floors globally and propel Joseph to be central character in the rising popularity of techno worldwide; helping the genre penetrate into remote markets such as South Africa and Honduras as well as traditionally mainstream territories such as Ibiza.Having made his debut for Marco Carola’s vibrant Music On brand in summer 2012, playing six memorable sets in the legendary main room of Amnesia, over the course of Music On’s opening term, including their closing party, Joseph Capriati returned to Ibiza in 2013 as an official resident for Music On, playing eight parties across the entire four-month season and in the process making the Amnesia main room all his own with his powerful, emotive techno providing the perfect foil to the sultry, energetic grooves with which Marco Carola ruled the Amnesia Terrace.It was a 12 hours party with Dave Clarke, Billy Nasty and Rino Cerrone.I was totally impressed by that sound and something in my mind changed.”Inspired and energized, Joseph made the leap into production; slaving away on a home PC and hi-fi speakers, honing his skills for three years and eventually creating his first important records like C’est La Vie and Microbiotik which found their way on to two of the most influential Neapolitan techno labels; Analytic Trail and Globox Records. What followed was an explosion in profile at home and abroad.Not only did he release his sophomore 'Self Portrait' album on Drumcode, but the inspirational Italian lit up marquee events across the globe including Berghain Berlin, Space Miami, Pacha New York, Output New York, Stereo Montreal, Cocorico Riccione and Cavo Paradiso Mykonos, plus a festival-hopping summer schedule and a truly magical Ibiza season which saw Capriati complete a euphoric eight-date residency for Music On at Amnesia and make two unforgettable appearances for Circo Loco at DC10.
A principle act for Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label, November 2013 saw the release of Capriati’s ‘Self Portrait’ album on Drumcode with tracks such a 'Fratello', 'Awake', 'Basic Element' and 'This Then That' captivating new and old Capriati fans alike.Born and raised in the southern Italian city of Caserta, less than 30km from Naples, Joseph Capriati’s emergence as significant force within Techno continues the strong lineage of talent from the city as he follows in the footsteps of Marco Carola, Rino Cerrone, Gaetano Parisio and Markantonio.Having grown up on a diet of early hip hop and classic house from the likes of Masters At Work, Todd Terry and Eddie Amador, Capriati bought his first DJ console at the tender age of 11; cutting his teeth playing to his friends in garages and basements after school.It was not until he was old enough to attend his first rave party that his passion for techno over-shadowed his early musical influences and set in motion the journey that has taken him to the position he is in today.As Joseph himself remembers, “the first time I heard techno was at Old River Park in Naples in 2003.
