Joseph Capriati is slowly recovering and out of danger
¨ I´m alive and thanks God I can tell you about it ¨
Joseph Capriati announces in a post on Instagram that his health is improving, that he already feliz better and that he thanks wholeheartedly his fans, friends, DJs, Producers and the media that have supported him and cared about his life.
In own Capriati´s words “ I just want to make music or play gigs everyday. It is the most important thing in my life. When I am in the studio or on stage I feel disconnected from the world and I enter another dimension where there is just the music, the people and myself. 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. There is nothing better than this for me.”
Joseph Capriati is an Italian electronic music producer and DJ. He grew up in the city of Caserta, in the south of Italy.
Though Capriati has amassed an extensive and accomplished discography, there is no doubt he is a DJ first and producer second. First manning the decks at just 11 years old, Capriati was a natural and soon began his journey into the footsteps of Naples techno pioneers like Marco Carola and Rino Cerrone.
He learnt his craft whilst absorbing the influences of early House pioneers like Masters at Work, Todd Terry, David Morales, Danny Tenaglia, Francois K and Tedd Patterson, then first releasing his own productions (including the classic "C'est La Vie') on local labels Globox Records and Analytic Trail. By 2007, he was playing his first high profile gig to thousands of adoring, hometown fans and just one year later for Awakenings.
One of many important milestones in the Capriati story is a fabled residency at Marco Carola's Music On parties beginning in 2012, where Joseph first spun his memorable sets to the Amnesia main room faithful. His ongoing presence in Ibiza has also seen him play headline sets at the Amnesia opening and closing parties and major slots at DC10.
Worldwide Drumcode events with Adam Beyer have long been notable dates in his calendar, as have back-to-back sets with the likes of Beyer, Carola, Tenaglia, Dave Clarke, Dubfire, Jamie Jones and Carl Cox, coast-to-coast US tours, Boiler Room with Richie Hawtin and a sold out, 12-hour marathon show in the 7000 capacity Metropolis club of his hometown.
This concept eventually led to his own event brand called 100% JC. It sees venues, such as Paradiso (Amsterdam), Trade (Miami) and many more, transformed into Joseph's idea of the perfect party, with him playing all night long. Perhaps the most concrete expression a DJ can make, though, is with a commercially-released mix CD, especially for Fabric (London). Capriati mixed their 80th edition in 2015, to universal acclaim from critics and fans. As a highly versatile entertainer who feels the power of every beat, there's no surprise Capriati has excelled with such a complete, 360° vision.
Capriati remains amongst the most in-demand, well-respected and exciting artists in dance music.
