Vito & Druzzi
Vito Roccoforte and Gabriel “Druzzi” Andruzzi, known as the DJ/ production duo, Vito&Druzzi, are no newcomers to dance music. As members of the band The Rapture, both artists were front and center during the rebirth of electronic sounds in popular music. Considered one of the seminal indie bands of the early 2000s, The Rapture are well known for their seamless marrying of early post-punk with elements of disco and house. Roccoforte (drums, programming), an original founding member of the band, and Andruzzi (multi-instrumentalist /in-house engineer/producer) who came on a few years later, were often drawn to the more club based elements of the group’s sound and they spent the next decade helping make hits that would come to define The Rapture’s aesthetic. As members of The Rapture they worked with a number of esteemed producers including James Murphy, Tim Goldsworthy, Paul Epworth, Ewan Pearson, Danger Mouse, Zdar and Timbaland and have toured with music legends like The Cure and Daft Punk. It was also during this time that both Vito&Druzzi began to explore production and Djing at a deeper level, taking notes along the way from the surrounding world-class producers.
