With an artist name derived from the legendary soul singer Minnie Riperton, it’s crystal clear everything is based around soul for Ripperton (aka Raphael Gros).

In the mid-noughties, Ripperton gained massive attention through his Lazy Fat People project. He has released on labels such as Border Community, Planet E and Wagon Repair. It was in that very same period that Ripperton made his breakthrough as a solo artist with an almost endless run of releases topped with a series of high profile remixes. From immersive techno to refined house, Ripperton adds a newfound sense of introspection to electronic dance music.
