Drumcode, Second State
"Born in 1987 and raised in the Neapolitan underground, Roberto Capuano has become one of the more recent generation’s brightest stars and a fine ambassador of the Naples techno sound worldwide.
Coming from a city with such a rich history in electronic dance music, Capuano has always worked with the highest standards in mind. Since his early days training as a sound engineer or as A&R for a prominent local label Unrilis, he has fully immersed himself in the scene around him, learning from the greats who have gone before and shaping these influences into something of his own.
Capuano’s story as a recording artist begins in 2009, with an EP on Markantonio’s label MKT. From his very first release he showed a special ability for expressing personality through his tracks and a knack for ear-worm melodies - the infectious 'Never Stop' on Truesoul being a fine example.
Now Capuano is an in-demand act worldwide. Regular back-to-back sets with Luigi Madonna or Markantonio have helped make him the DJ he is today, as well as playing high profile events like Monegros, Sonar OFF Week and the Drumcode showcases. Embracing technology with a hybrid DJ setup, Capuano thrives on the creative possibilities of modern equipment and has become an expert at creating unforgettable moments on the dancefloor through looping and layering tracks. He ought to be seen live to be fully appreciated, as the atmosphere in the club and connection with the dancers is what inspires Capuano, from his formative experience right up until today.
