The professionalism Coppa brings to the job is evident in his Dj-friendly, but crowd entertaining style, is deep rooted in the source of his understanding of music and the all important fact of knowing when to drop lyrics and when to let the music play. Through balancing the key fundamentals of complimenting the music and hyping the crowd, his work has earned the respect of many of Drum and bass´s & Dubstep veterans, promoters and crowds across the map.
His experience is evident in his impressive resume of live work outside of drum and bass, which includes Festivals such as Pepsi Sziget festival, Giles Peterson´s WorldWide festival in Singapore, X-Live festival in Malaysia opening a concert for Missy Elliot, touring China in 2003 with Dj Roobles of Kitachi, performing with the Q-Orchestra live band in Greece at European Music Day & hosting sets with the likes of Kruder & Dorfmeister, Felix da House Cat, Meat Katie, Tiefschwarz, Stereotyp across Europe and beyond.
When not performing live, Coppa´s artist output is equally as impressive consisting of releases on Kruder & Dorfmeister's G-Stone label, Cut La Roc´s Rocstar Records, the legendary SKINT rec, Freestyle Records UK, as writer on Bob Sinclar´s Yellow productions and techno legends Len Faki´s Figure Rec & Francios K´s Wave Music alongside of host of compilation releases on Warner Music/Sony Dance, Universal & BMG Germany. Currently he is collaborating in the studio with the likes of Cut La Roc, The Beatmonkeys, Ida Corr, Matta, Afghan Headspin, Prolix and releasing music on some of the biggest electronic music labels.
On the other side of the spectrum, as of lately holding a label residency at Viper Recordings, working regularly at Viper Recordings showcases around Europe with the likes of Futurebound & Matrix, Metrik, Culture Shock & co.
The extra dimension he brings from his 10 years professional experience is testament to him being regularly booked as a solo headline act in his own right across Europe and Russia & being enlisted hosting whole dnb and dubstep stages at some of the biggest festivals on the continent.
In this current climate of overbearing MC overload, Coppa is still an artist trusted and frequently used by the professionals on the international circuit to present and hold down the microphone duties for some of the biggest names in the scene at this time.
