Peter Forasi, better known as Peppelino in the electronic music industry, was born in 1985 in Hungary. He got hooked on techno music in ’98 and in 2005 finally got his own production going. As Peppe was spending long hours working hard in the studio, the following two years quite quickly started to bring him success. His tracks were getting released on digital labels such as Prozak Records, Techment, Egotraxx and others.
In 2008, his tracks started getting released in vinyl format as well on some of the biggest techno record labels including Yin Yang, Soulaccess and Penetration Nation. He has done remixes for artists as Spiros Kaloumenos, Reaky, Pratap, Dj. Link, Darkrow, Mladen Tomic, Collins and Benham, Michal Poliak, Marco G…, while his tracks were also remixed by some of the top techno producers including Stephane Signore, Pratap, Raul Mezcolanza, Reaky and many others. In the beginning of the year he got an offer to join the MOSP booking agency and he didn’t need a lot of time to think about it. He immediately grabbed the opportunity and joined the agency that cooperates with many big stars along with Lucca, Adam Beyer, Cristian Varela, Umek, Paul Kalkbrenner, Michal Poliak, and many many more huge stars from different styles like Bruno Mars, Black Eyed Peas, Katy B, Inna, Ida Corr, Shaggy and Sean Paul.

He got some excellent reviews of a lot of his tracks charting high up on download sales, appearing on DJ charts worldwide, played on several radio stations as much as on web casts and continuously seeing his tracks on worlds biggest DJs TOP10’s. Peppelino won the ‘‘Reaky – Mushter’’ remix competition on Yin Yang records and he’s looking forward to future collaboration with his Slovene friend, the fast rising techno maniac Reaky. Peter’s career is blooming pretty fast considering he’s ‘’on-scene’’ only a couple of years. Before that he played at small local gigs and school parties.
In 2009, during his first year of more serious dj-ing he played in clubs in Hungary, Ukraine and Slovenia. The following year Peppe began to get booked in other countries more often, including Spain, Slovakia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Ireland, and Russian Federation. He played with superstars like Valentino Kanzyani, Oscar Mulero, Reeko, Axel Karakasi, Stephane Signore, Boriqua Tribez, Mario Ranieri, Veztax, Wehbba, Dosem, Dj Preach, Pet Duo, Duart, Raul Mezcolanza, Fernanda Martins, Dj. Lukas, Obi, Pedro Delgardo, Aitor Ronda, Dito Masat, Horacio Cruz, Candy Cox, Dj. Lukas, OBI, Michal Poliak, Reaky, Dj. Cristiao, Ruslan Mays, Dj Jerry and many others. This year he also played in some clubs around Hungary including M47, Juliacentrál, K2, Hell Pub, Blackman. He’s very satisfied with the gigs he had in M47, because it’s the best known techno club in Hungary where a lot of international superstars often show up. He has played with most of the best Hungarian Dj’s such as Schmidt, Zsíros, Anton Vl, Dave, Kali and more. The responses about his sets were always very good and he managed to impress the audience every single time. Peter got in touch with a Spanish emerging star Fer BR and they have quite an idea going on. The idea is to perform a live act with 2 laptops, controllers and effects, expecting the crowd to go absolutely wild. They were shown this performance on this year in Spain witch was just absolutely amazing and had good feedbacks from the crowd. Peter was played with his own liveact set on the first time in Hungary witch was very amazing and energetic. Also he was continue the producing so he had chance again to release his tracks on vinyl format as well on some of the biggest techno record labels like Petterns, Patterns Special, Relatives, Amigo Records, P Series…
In 2010, Peter has totally changes his life and made a good decision to move and living his life in the city witch is never sleeping, LONDON. He took his base in that city witch was opening a lot of new ways, gates for him. About the location, flights, because there are so many airports next to London so regarding this he was first time booked in Portugal where he was played with the legendary Pet Duo and also many other uprising techno start from Duart to Raul Mezcolanza. Also he was debut in Belgium in an Open Air Festival where he was acted with Dj. Cristiao from Spain and Peppe also was booked in clubs over Europe. Both debuts, gigs were just perfect to see for him what’s going on those countries and how peoples over there are wonderful and enjoy the electronic styles. The first England gig also just came during this time in his life witch was in the fabulous Storm Club in Coalville witch was pretty crazy. He did not stop the music making, more and more tracks, remixes were released on this time by digital and vinyl format also. He started to work some other kind of styles. Those tracks were still energetic and dynamic but slower a little bit and he was released those tracks as Peter Forasi aka Peppelino. After this step, those tracks were charted by the biggest stars on over the word from Umek to Christian Fischer.
From 2011 till 2012, this energetic guy was taking some rest and took back his speed a little bit. He did not finish producing music, but he did not make that much of tracks, remixes like before. This guy confused a little bit about the styles because as you can see the techno is every day is changing. He want to find the right way for himself witch is not really easy now days because he does not want to lost his funs, supporters about this changing. So he is looking for something new witch are still groovy, driving and energetic but maybe slower and has darker sounds and I think he is going on the right way. Peter also get contacted with Steel Grooves, the US techno gangster, who has absolutely amazing sound, so they are working on some tracks, so keep on eyes on the market soon, some bombs are coming. Also he was debuted in a gig in Scotland where he had absolutely amazing crowd and public.
In 2013, Peppelino changed a lot and he had one of the busiest periods in his life. His usually hardgroove-techno style with fast bpm, what is made him unique is the past. He closed that part of his life and he was driving on other way. You do not have to scare of it, he didn’t finish his career. He just slowdown, and he is started to produce slower Techno. His new style is absolutely amazing and banging. He is producing tracks and remixes on 123bpm-130bpm with dark sounds, deep and killer bassline and of course cannot miss the dynamic and driving from his tracks. Well, regarding this step, he had a lot of attack by old Peppelino Fans, because they were thinking he is moved on this side about money. We have to let everybody know he is changed because this new style is taking on the place now in his heart, and he has a kind of reborn now days, this is what this style is giving for him.
And he had right as so far the result showing up. Dj. Boris signed 3 tracks on his Transmit Recordings, Mr. Cristian Varela signed an EP on his Pornographic Records and we think we do not have to introduce who is him. Peppelino gave atrack for the massive Night Light Records witch is managed by Mladen Tomic and Sinisa Tamamovic. And we still not in the end, Monique Musique, No Sound Music, Dark Face Recordings by Gaga, Naughty Pills Records, Ultrachic music by Paul Mendez, DSR Digital by David Temessi and of course Airtaxi Records. Why of course? Well, Airtaxi Records opened on the June of 2013 and managing by Peppelino. This amazing new label will focus on releasing original music from both upcoming and established artists, primarily fusing influences from techno genres including, dark techno, techno, tech-house.
Peppelino has got a lot of potential and in the following years he’s looking up to more and more success.
It’s just a matter of time his energetic vibes start dominating the world…
