Jean-Pierre Lantieri, a.k.a. DjayPee, is a French artist who, in the mid-Nineties, fell in love with South East Asia and its mystic wonders, finding his muse in a part of the world where sunshine and smiles greet him every day.
He gladly allows himself to become immersed in this rich, varied culture, absorbing inspiration from every direction, in turn inspiring his followers with refreshing, universal, East-meets-West music.
DjayPee produces tracks in his Kuala Lumpur studio, reworking melodies and samples recorded on his globe-hops to create unique fusions, citing Moby, Enigma, Jean-Michel Jarre, Deep Forest, BT and Ruychi Sakamoto, to name a few, as influences, alongside the many talented local musicians of the contemporary South East.
The result is award-winning compositions such as 'Kids', 'I Feel Love', and the magical 'Geisha'.
