He created the biggest hits for Grammy winners Frankie Knuckles & Peter Rauhofer, but now DJ Eric Kupper is having solo success with his highly respected Hysteria Records, as half of C&C Music Factory, but especially in the dj booth. Current: MAJOR Michael Jackson remix with David Morales. #1 Traxsource House Essentials chart.
Eric Kupper got his start over two decades ago working as a keyboardist, guitarist, and songwriter for such producer and remixers as David Morales, Frankie Knuckles, Arthur Baker, Mark Kamins, Justin Strauss, Peter Rauhofer, and Richie Jones to name a few.
Since 1986 he has played on, remixed, and/or produced over 1800 records for artists spanning all contemporary musical genres. He is one of the few artists in dance music today that is a master multi-instrumentalist. A true musician. Over the years, thousands and thousands of hours in the studio has polished Eric Kupper into one of the most sought after producers/remixer/musicians in the world. The remix work is astounding. Major label artists that have taken the Kupper treatment include Michael Jackson, Garbage, Usher, Alicia Keyes, Whitney Houston, Depeche Mode, BT, Joe Jonas, Marianne Faithful, Goldfrapp, Cher, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Kylie Minogue, Korn, Moloko, New Order, Yoko Ono, Dido, Selena Gomez, Brandy, Curtis Mayfield, Robert Palmer, Afrika Bambaata & Soulsonic Force, Kate Bush, 808 State, Jessica Simpson, Anastacia and Donna Summer. He has worked on over 100 Billboard Number One dance records and has mixed two records that have received the "Dance Record of the Year" Grammy award (Frankie Knuckles & Peter Rauhofer).
His Hysteria imprint is a major contender in house music. It's a vehicle that demonstrates Kupper's own sound and those of likeminded producers, and Hysteria is often the label behind Traxsource's #1 Essential House Hits, a sign of Eric's acuity and passion. His is particularly adept at long sets like those of his former partners, Peter Rauhofer and Frankie Knuckles -- from the deepest grooves to the most sublime and cool remixes of pop songs and even flawlessly recrafted classics. Expert in the purest of deep house sets in sophisticated venues. Excellently paired with singers whom he has produced: Inaya Day and Joi Cardwell.
