In 2004 he established the party series “DEZIBEL” in Lucerne. What started off to be a low budget event with local and national DJs, ended up featuring such big names as Chase & Status, Sub Focus, Calyx & TeeBee, Logistics and Commix. The success story in Lucerne came to and end 2009 when Don Philippo decided to move to Zurich to take on a new challenge.
His hunger for Drum and Bass was not wiped out and so he joined mute.ch at the beginning of 2010, one of Switzerland’s most prestigious and longest running labels. He used to run five regular nights per year at the renowned Hive Club. Artists that have played since his arrival are Nu:Logic, S.P.Y, Total Science, Lenzman, Calibre, Alix Perez, BTK or Enei to only name a few.
Next to his function as party promoter Don Philippo also gained a great reputation as DJ. He first touched turntables in 2004 in the living room of his neighbour, successful DJ and producer Dayni from Lucerne. The passion for Drum and Bass music never left and he thus spent more and more time in the studio. The rest is history with Don Philippo having played miscellaneous big and small clubs in Switzerland and even abroad. His sets are always floor orientated but never lack a certain amount of diversity. Come and see Don Philippo live: You can expect an explosive mixture of liquid, deep and rolling Drum and Bass.
Should Don Philippo for a change not be in the studio or out making people dance, then you can catch him every first Monday of the month as special guest host on Swiss national radio “DRS Virus”.
