Featured Artist: nicopop
“Below the Ceiling” from nicopop. is a dreamy anthem for the weekend warrior in all of us.
Nicolas DiPietrantonio, the man behind nicopop., is an emerging LA based producer and DJ taking the electronic-pop world by storm with his unique take on what it means to make music in our media-saturated world. His love for popular culture, especially pop music and memes, shows through in his bubbly fun beats and sound. With his latest release, “Below the Ceiling,” nicopop. gives his listeners a feel-good fusion of early 2000’s electronic beats and self-described “unapologetic pop” - music that just makes them want to dance.
Prior to nicopop., DiPietrantonio primarily produced remixes of some of today's top artists, such as Nick Jonas and Tove Lo. He started this latest project earlier this year and over the last six months he has released two other songs under the name nicopop.: “Elephant” and “Start Again.” These releases followed a 32-city US tour with Gareth Emery.
For “Below the Ceiling,” DiPietrantonio teamed up with co-writer and vocalist Tyler Mann. This wasn’t the first time the two collaborated, having previously released “Start Again” together. In this latest track, DiPietrantonio inspires in listeners a need for escape to the weekend and somewhere away from responsibilities, where the only things that matter are finding some bubbly and that “new sound” to dance to.
DiPietrantonio said in a recent interview with Vanyaland that this song, similarly to his previous work, was inspired by pop culture and the media they consume. He said that “Below the Ceiling” has been deeply inspired by his obsession with pop culture, and more specifically the Cartoon Network show Adventure Time for its ability to “whisk you away.”
