In 2019, DiPietrantonio retired the Louis Vivet moniker in favor of the name nicopop - a creative rebirth that was accompanied by a sonic shift towards the soaring melodies and massive hooks he has been obsessed with his entire life. In the time since, he has served as producer and creative consultant for several notable artists including Evalyn and Kyan Palmer, and added tracks with RAC and Slayyyter to his resume. He’s also done remixes for Duran Duran, Tove Lo, Nick Jonas, and Chaka Khan. This year, Nicopop checked another important career milestone off his list with the release of his own custom Splice sample pack, Sounds of Summer Vol. 1.
At the top of 2021, Nicopop will release his debut EP, Déjà Vu, on Swedish label, Loudkult Records. Déjà Vu is a cohesive collection of dancefloor anthems inspired by the legendary Berlin after hours club scene, but infused with the hopeful anticipation of an epic house party. It’s jam packed with dark vibes and infectious melodies, creating a unique pop record that accomplishes the difficult act of balancing accessibility and progress that he so admires in the torchbearers of the genre.
