System of Survival, Peter De Lisi and Alex Carpentieri, are dedicated purveyors of
all that is good in house music.
The duo met in 1988, DJing at the same party and soon started playing together
all over the country collaborating with important promoters, and playing in some
of the most important clubs of the world.
They’ve held a residency at the legendary Circoloco at DC10 in Ibiza since its
inception. Their ability to carry a crowd, seamlessly blend styles and support the
countless guest DJs is a true testament to the role of a resident and led them to fly
the Circoloco flag across the globe.
Apart from touring with the DC10 crew, Peter and Alex have been steadily riding a
wave of popularity, gaining momentum through their own headlining dates at
Panorama Bar & Watergate, Berlin: Movement Detroit Festival, BPM
Festival in Mexico, Verboten and Output in New York, Womb in Tokyo and
Fabric London. A commitment to style beyond what’s trendy and ease in mixing
the old with the new, has earned them the title of a DJ’s DJ.
"Our sets have never really fit to one particular style or type, Peter has a soul and
funk background whereas mine is more Detroit or Chicago techno-inspired so
when we play it's a real blend of the styles, making something different
completely, something new."
As true aficionados, SOS boasts an extensive back catalogue of music, across
styles and genres, and nowhere is this more evident than in their productions.
Their first LP album- Needle & Thread- is a both a reflection on their future vision
of house, and a tribute to the sounds that have inspired them to this point. After a
chance listening by Ellen Allien, it has been signed and released on Bpitch
Their second Album D-Votion is out now on legendary Get Physical Music.
Prolific as well as Remixers, System Of Survival released remixes for
Roisin Murphy's single Ten Miles High and DJ Pierre's Chicago
classic tune Let The Music Take You Higher.
